    Hi there
    I recently came to acquire an original first gen iPhone currently running 3.1.3. For nostalgia and fun's sake, I'd love to find a way to downgrade this back to the original "iPhone OS" (as it used to be called) version 1.0. I've got the IPSW file, but I've read it's virtually impossible to downgrade without the original SHSH "blobs." Am I 100% stuck or is there another way?

    If I remember well the problem is with the firmware baseband... And I think that you can downgrade only if you can find that...:apple:

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    No, I think the lowest some were able to get it was 1.1.4

    Holy crap, that link looks promising. It's gonna take a bit of work (PITA to get Windows XP on my Mac), but I'll give it a go! Thanks!

    I'm so close but can't seal the deal. I got 1.0 loaded on but it's stuck at the damn activation screen (bc obviously Apple isn't activating that OS anymore. There were instructions to install a software activator, but can't get it to work! Damn!
