    Hello all,

    first of all: I am a newbie that has no idea what she's doing!

    Long story in short:

    I bought the iPhone version 1.1.2., did the unlock procedure which is found all over the internet:

    Downgrade firmware from 1.1.2 to 1.1.1 , Jailbreak & Activate, insatll OKTOPREP

    Worked like a charm!!

    Afterwards I wanted to upgrade back to 1.1.2 since iTunes has already released a new version I proceeded with instructions found here:


    Now, when I went on with this:

    Step 4: Update to 1.1.2

    1. Connect your device to your computer

    2. Launch iTunes

    3. Choose your device

    4. Hold "Option" on a Mac, or "Shift" on a PC and click, "Update." Navigate to the 1.1.2 file that we downloaded and click OK.

    - DO NOT CLICK OR SHIFT-CLICK RESTORE: That will wipe the changes OktoPrep made.

    5. Wait forever for your device to update

    I DID wait forever and nothing happened! All of a sudden the phone went black. And if I push the off and home button for 15-30 secs I get either the apple logo or this pic:


    I just connected the phone to iTunes, only if I keep pushing the off and home button iTunes finally recognizes the phone. Says it needs restoring, okay...works and after restoring comes an error code that it cannot be restored.

    I think I really, really messed up! Problem is I live in Cancun, no Apple Store or anyone I could turn to near. Any magical advice?!

    What's the error that you get? :confused: Also, have you already upgraded to itunes 7.6, if so, you will not be able to update to 1.1.2 from itunes 7.6!
