Jailbroken/bricked Iphone w/tmobile sim card

I accidentally upgraded my 1.1.3 firmware to 2.0 via Itunes. I tried to reset it several times. I get the connect to itunes icon on my fone and cannot move past that. I have downloaded the 1.1.3 firmware from modmyifone and did yet another reset. Itunes is not recognizing my tmobile sim card and therefore the fone remains in the locked state. My iphone was purchased on ebay and was unlocked and jailbroke to use the tmobile sim. I do not have any other sim cards to use. What do I do to get Itunes to recognize the sim card? wht do I do next?

    I cannot get to the area to change the mode to airplane. I cant get past the "connect to Itunes" icon. I do not see any of the other options that you normally see on the iphone. I can see a dial pad which only allows me to make emergency calls. So thank you but this advise does not help me in this situation.

My iphone is stuck on emergency contact mode with the picture telling me to plug it into itunes. when i do it says sim card is not support the iphone, i have tried everything but it wont even restore.


Are you using a legitimate ATT sim card or are you jailbroken using Tmobile or some other GSM provider? you can try putting the phone into DFU mode. Have it plugged into the computer. and turn it off. Then hold both the upper sleep/wake button and the bottom Home button for 10 seconds. Then when you get to ten release the top sleep/wake button and continue holding the bottom home button until itunes gives you a message about it recognizing a phone in recovery mode. This should allow you to restore the phone.

Pls. how do i update my jailbroken iphone 3g to the latest firmware


Do u need to keep ur data? if yes then u will need two different PCs/MACs to perform this?

get latest itune on both.
on one of the computer connect ur iphone and once connected to itune, right click on the iphone icon and select back up. All ur data is now backed up.

Now, Perform the steps below at ur own risk.
You will need to do the jailbreak again once upgrade done. keep in mind that the latest firmware iOS 4.0.1 can not be jailbroken and thus can not be unlocked.

Get ur phone in to restore mode by doing ,,
Turn off the iPhone comletely by sliding the red slider on the screen.
Open itunes on the other computer (not the same where u have backed up ur data)

Step 1
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone via USB.
Step 2
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
Step 3
Continue holding the both buttons until your iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.

Your iPhone screen will look like this:
iphone-recovery-mode-2.jpg

Click OK on the small pop up.
Now, select resore button on the itunes screen and itunes will find the latest upgrade for ur phone and will show u the recommended upgrade in to a small pop up in less then 3mins.

and there u go, select ok and let the itunes perform the rest.

Error 1604 and Kernel Panic


confirm that your firmware is compatable with your iphone.
if you have a 2G the firmware should start with 1.1 if you have a 3G the firmware should start with 1.2
apparently unlocked or jailbroken phones with the wrong firmware will brick in this manner.
not to worry, your not the only one.
do a web search for error 1604 and you will see solutions such as this below.

  • Problem: I cant restore my custom firmware. I just get error 6, 1, 2, (something low).
    Solution: This has multiple causes. Generally, you are not in DFU mode. See DFU guide. Winpwn solution after ruling out the above: Delete the device file (x12220000_4_Recovery.ipsw) in your iTunes folder. (Search for the file). This can also be caused by using the incorrect firmware image (a 3g on a 2g for example).
    ———————
  • Problem: I am in DFU mode and I just get error 1604, 1602, 1601 (some 160x). I am pulling my hair out! What do I do?!
    Solution: This one sucks. There’s no single answer for it. Here are some possible suggestions:
    • Validate you are using the correct firmware. You can get this if you are using an incompatible firmware (3g for 2g for example).
    • Restart your computer and try again.
    • Try another computer
    • Try switching USB ports
    • Uninstall and reinstall iTunes 7.7
If you are not able to get out of DFU mode even after trying one of the above fixes, click here to follow the comments on BigBoss’s website.
