    Can someone help me?
    Im stuck in step 10. Now my iphones screen is black, itunes doesnt recognize my iphone , iindependence says "disconnected: waiting for iphone" and in iliberty theres no "other tools" so what can i do next???
    Please help me
    That is exactly hwere mine got stuck, and all I could do was reinstall iTunes 7.7.1 and firmware 2.0.2.

    I had issues with the Mac instructions, as three lines are repeated in the first post by Poseidon and I rather think there's some missing information there, and my own knowledge is not enough to fill it in.

    Note for OSX users:
    If you are on OSX and want to attempt to downgrade your iTunes, you can try these steps:

    Load up Terminal and type the following:
    killall iTunesHelper
    sudo -s
    rm -r /Applications/iTunes.app
    rm -r /Library/Receipts/iTunesX.pkg
    rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes*
    rm -r /Applications/iTunes.app
    rm -r /Library/Receipts/iTunesX.pkg
    rm ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.iTunes*

    rm -r /System/Library/PrivateFrameworks/MobileDevice.framework
    The bolded bits are the dupes ... also, removing that framework for whatever reason meant that even when I installed 7.5 the mobile device framework kept refusing to start, and so it was all a bit of a pain, because iNdependence could never find the phone, no matter how many times I reinstalled 7.5.

    Has any Mac user actually found a way of making it work?

    I've found a partial solution for Mac users. One piece of important information which is missing from all the guides for Mac, is that you also need to stop the iTunes helper when you are doing this... thats where mine was screwing up.

    @ latrice re: losing songs in your library... rename your itunes music folder to something else. Once you have done the deed and downgraded you are going to want to upgrade to the latest itunes (being careful not to let it automatically update your iphone of course) and you want to keep your tunes intact so the lates version will see it. It doesnt matter if 7.5 cants see the songs, you only need it long enough to downgrade.

    It does not work. I got an error 20

    Everything i did step by step 3 times but each time when I try to restore iphone1,1_1.1.4_4a102_restore.ipsw with Itunes 7.5.0.20 an error 20 is displayed.

    Error 20 results from not having the correct version of iTunes. Uninstall whatever version you have now and do a clean install of version 7.5. Be sure you reboot your computer after you uninstall itunes.

    I use MAC OSX however i have to upgrade and unlock an iPhone on Windows to V 2.0 I just wanted to know if the customized file (the .ipsw file) that is created by PwnageTool be simply used to upgrade the phone. I have the file on my MAC BookPro and i can transfer it to the Windows System and then Shift+restore and select the File and restore it from the Customized file created by Pwnage tool. Will it work?

    I'm getting the same error (20). What am I doing wrong?!

    Also, in the instructions, it says to do the restore in itunes twice. However, after I do it the first time, I get the error (20), and then I have to turn off the iphone and do the process again. Is that correct?

    Finally, when I get to the point where I click on "Jump out of Recovery Mode" in iLiberty, it won't let me click that button.

    What am I doing wrong?! PLease help me!!!!!

    Thanks
