Thanks to great finds by members, WE ARE NOW ABLE TO DOWNGRADE OUR PHONES! I just wanted to make a simple guide for people with PC's to follow

Start iTunes and plug in your 1.1.1 phone

In 1.1.1, hold Power and Home buttons and count 10 seconds (your phone will turn off, just keep counting), release the power button but continue to hold the home button until your phone is recognized by iTunes. (phone screen will be blank)

A message will pop up and ask you to restore your iPhone. Holding down the SHIFT key, click on the restore button. Navigate to your 1.0.2 software
(http://appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite...70821.vormd/iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw)

Begin restoring...

When it's done, you will get an ERROR, click OK. Your phone should show a yellow triangle. Leave iTunes running and run AppTap.

AppTap might encounter an error as well, however, it will bring your phone to the Activation screen. Once again, start iTunes, ignore all messages from it, and run AppTap. Now it will jailbreak your phone and install Installer. (You may have to retsart your PC after arriving at the activation screen if iTunes isn't recognizing your phone)

Simply use iASign or whatever you use to bypass activation.

Your phone is now back to 1.0.2.

(I am using iTunes 7.4.3.1)

WI-FI, calls, everything fully functional!

What about those of us who will be getting it soon and will thereforee have 1.1.1 firmware? Are they SOL? I won't be getting mine until sometime late next week so I'm wondering if these instructions will help me take advantage of the 3rd party apps. If not, I'll deal.

Nobody has ever HAD a 1.1.1 phone yet so who knows!

Having the proper firmware to restore with "SHOULD" do it the same either way, but knowing Apple.............

I suppose I can find out then when I pick it up sometime next week. :cool:

will let you all know what the results are if I do try this.
