Im not really sure whats going on with mine lol

I guess it thinks its activated? I really don't know. I just want my wifi back.

For $400 just being able to take pictures and listen to music doesn't cut it for me.

Does anyone know if you can go back from using iTunes 7.4.2?
I've tried some methods of going back, and no luck. Keep getting "Error Code 1", what ever that means.
ERROR CODE 1: Many people are going to get this. I got error 1 twice then iTunes restored to 1.1.1. Afterwards, I tried it again and iTunes allowed a 1.0.2 restore. iTunes will start saying Restoring, verifying software, and installing firmware. Good Luck.

Took me like 6 Tries

No kidding...it really took me like 6 tries and 3 "re-udates" to the 1.1.1.....But there is hope for those who try to down grade to 1.0.2 and can't seem to get the hang of it at first.

I am installing installer right NOW...i can't wait to have my mods back! Thanks to the people that figured this all out.

NOTE TO SELF: DO NOT UPDATE WITHOUT WAITING!

Thanks Mike. I had to say something...I mean I have been reading a lot of the posts on various topics on this site and a lot of people just b!t@h about everything. Sometimes, I truly think that most iPhone owners on this site are 5 year old fat kids that complain JUST TO COMPLAIN. But Mike....you seem to have it all under control.


Thanks again for the props.

For those that have done this, couple of questions:

1 - I see mention of using AppTap as a required part of the process. I assume you're able to download/install during this process? It will still work if it wasn't on there to begin with, right (meaning restore isn't putting back on for you)?

2 - Once you're all done with the process, can you then do a standard Restore to Factory, removing AppTap and all mods/jailbreaking/etc? Will the unit be totally back to factory at that point?

While I'd love to remove 1.1.1 from my device, I don't particularly need any of the current 3P apps, and don't want to go from Apple's required software, to AppTap (or some other) required software in it's place :)

KUDDOS! To those who figured this process out, and passed it on though! This is a HUGE 1-finger Salute to Steve and the rest of Apple :)

The first time i ran apptap it just booted to a factory 1.0.2 phone.
I to restart and run apptap a second time to get the installer.

I am fairly certain that is what I had to do too. At the time I was in shock after finding out that this was possible and everything is kinda blurry.

Ok when you are only holding down the home button does your iTunes recognize your phone after a while. If it does then that is when you stop pushing the home button.
