I've been thoroughly busy with my phone lately.

two days ago, i winpwned my phone to 2.0,

then i decided to enter bootneuter.

i've used BootNeuter before, and i know what im doing.

bootneuter 2.0 hates me, though, i think.

i tried to reflash the phone to 4.6 unlocked

it failed.

my baseband was erased somehow.

i tried to restore to my custom 2.0, error 14-something (14xx)

uninstalled iTunes 7.7, installed 7.5

downgraded to 1.1.4

upgraded to 7.7

restored back to custom 2.0

same bootneuter error

and the same process three more times.

those with a PC will know how much of a pain in the ass it is to uninstall iTunes, whereas on a Mac, you just move a couple of directories,

Finally.

i think i know what i did wrong.

i read that you are supposed to first unlock the baseband on 1.1.4, and only THEN restore to your custom firmware (although that is completely counter intuitive in my opinion, doesn't a restore erase baseband?)

installing 7.5 right now.

i've spent 20 hours working on this, and i have another iPhone in the exact same situation laying right next to mine..

I'll report results later.

Good Day.

i'm as good as can be expected. I was just unsure of how you had progressed since a thread not too long ago where you seemed distressed... :(

hopefully better :)
