    hi all,

    had a jailbreak from hell and ended up with error -1 on iphone 4 when trying to restore to latest 6.1.3. i can restore back to 5.1.1 with saved blobs but when i do i have no service, greyed out wifi, no mac address (it just reads all zeros) and most worrying is i have no emei number. i think I'm screwed. :(

    bought a 4s on ebay to replace it only to find out its blacklisted in another country and cant be unlocked. well it can but i was asked for 200 euro for it to be done.

    would be grateful if anyone has any info that might help. would be great if i could get just one phone working before i pull the rest of the hair out of my head. :)

    i had an old jailbroken iphone 4 that was kinda stuck and wouldnt restore properly. it took me a few times to finally get the restore take. maybe try a few more times.
