The last time I had that restoring my iPhone, I had to get it replaced at the Genius Bar. The restore would always fail on the last part, where it when to apply the firmware.

That is a hardware (baseband) problem. You need to replace and/or reflow the baseband chip on the logic board.
The reason why jailbreaking works is because it bypasses activation, but your modem chip is damaged.

So does Lance Amstrong...


Blobs are device specific, you can't use them on another device, also TSS doesn't work for restores on 5+

I think the dev team might have done it this way if it was possible

Just klick Fix recovery in Tiny Umbrella when that error appears.
that works but still doesn't fix my situation. a few ppl said the antenna cable could have come unplugged that's whats giving me these problems and it could probably explain why it always says searching.
