I would like to downgrade firmware on iPhone 3G from 4.0 to 3.1.1 Please help


There is no 3.1.1 firmware version available for the iPhone 3G. 3.1.1 is only for ipod touches. To downgrade to 3.1.2 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-2-32353/) or 3.1 (http://modmyi.com/forums/downloads/firmware/6/iphone-3g-3-1-32183/), download from either of the provided links, go into iTunes and to your iPhone tab, shift+click on restore for windows, or alt+click restore on mac, navigate to the downloaded file, and open it. Your phone will restore to the downloaded firmware.

I want to unlock Iphone 3g with firmware 3.1.3


You cannot unlock iPhone 3.1.3 with modem firmware 05.12.01. But you can unlock modem firmware 05.11.07 using blacksn0w.

I updated new version of software 3.1.3 but it is nt activated it is not supporting 2g sim


Hello,
If you have a carrier locked iPhone (AT&T in the US), then simply connect the iPhone to your computer with the iPhone's USB cable and open iTunes. Upon doing so, iTunes should connect to the internet and activate your iPhone by confirming your AT&T service account via Apple's activation servers.
If your iPhone is using a Non-AT&T carrier, then you must download and use an application like Blackra1n to re-activate your iPhone and jailbreak it, if necessary.
However, please note, if you need the iPhone unlocked as well, firmware OS version 3.1.3 (currently the latest, as of this writing) is not unlockable due to the changes it makes to your baseband. You cannot downgrade your firmware OS either since the baseband changes 3.1.3 makes to your iPhone's modem are permanent.
Until a proper fix is found and released by the iPhone Dev-Team (the creators & supporters of the iPhone unlocking software), the best you can hope for is an activated, jailbroken iPhone, but sadly, not unlocked.

Iphone showing no service


If it was bought unlocked for under $700 then it was unlocked illegally after updgrading to 3.0 it is locked again. If you upgrade to any of appples unpdates your phone will be locked each time and you will have to wait for an unlock solution to be released each time. Currently there is no way to unlock the 3g under 3.0 firmware only the 2g is unlockable to the 3.0...I know case i have one. Jailbreaking and unlocking are different.You have to downgrade your firmware to unlock it. Restore your phone via iTunes using one of your old backups, you should be fine.

Iphone 3h no service


Go into your setting<General<Reset<Reset Network Settings   This should fix your problem if it does not then maybe your service provider is to blame, if not just faulty iPhone hardware. In that case you can take your phone into a Apple retail store with an appointment and get it swapped for  a new one.  ( as long as you are within your hardware warranty)

I have Iphone clone and I get ''no service'' when my AT+T sim card


I also had purchased an Iphone clone not to long ago. My service provider was AT&T. 90% of the time when my SIM card was inserted the phone would read "emergency mode". I would have no service, I wouldn't be able to receive or send any calls or text messages. I talked to AT&T representatives who would solve the problem for short periods of time but never gave me a permanent fix. I immediately sent the phone back to the seller. I have been doing a lot of research on these Iphone clones and I have seen quite a few times that people have problems in this area, not being able to have service. Also, what you have purchased and think is a genuine Iphone very well may not be. Many models of these Iphone clones now have the Apple symbol on the back and even have the Apple logo displayed on the screen when they start up. This being the case, you may very well have purchased a fake Iphone which would lead to problems with your service provider. I'm not sure how to fix the problem, and for this I apologize because I know how frustrating it is not to have service. But, I can tell you that your best bet may be to return the phone and try something else. All I've heard is that the genuine Iphone is the best way to go. Because these clones are made by independent manufacturers and not sold through AT&T, even though they may seem nice, many people have constant problems with service. Good luck, and if you find an alternative solution please let me know!

Can't restore to my iphone from 2.0 to 1.1.4


Try this tijanotu:

You will need these files/program:

1. Ziphone 3.0 program

2. Ziphone Firmware Files 1.1.2, AND 1.1.4. To get these files open Ziphone 3.0 then Click Help and Support, then middle box on top of page Web Links Firmware Files 1.1.2 and 1.1.4 (to make it easier to find I always save everything to the desktop)
3. Kiphone http://www.iclarified.com/entry/comments.php?page=1&enid=1536#commentsanchor

Not sure if all these steps are needed for success, I am just putting it all down becuase this is exactly what I did to get my cell signal back.

First, I uninstalled itunes 7.7.

Then I downloaded and installed itunes 7.5. At this point you will have to rename your itunes libray folder. Instructions are here: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1504

Next I downgraded the iphone to 1.1.2 using the link above.
Downgrading steps:
Connect phone to computer
Open Ziphone 3.0
Click on Prepare for Upgrade (this will put iphone into DFU mode)
Now you have to restore using itunes 7.5 (which will open up as soon as the iphone goes into DFU mode.)
In itunes hold down SHIFT key (FOR WINDOWS) while pressing RESTORE. This will allow you to browse for the firmware file 1.1.2 you previously downloaded. Click on the 1.1.2 restore file and hit OPEN. This will begin the restoring process.
You will probably get an error code noting the restore wasn't successful. Ignore this unless the error code number is in the 1600's.
After this I tried to jailbreak my iphone using Ziphone 3.0 but wasn't successful so I:
Repeated the restore process but his time restoring to 1.1.4. Got the same error saying that restore wasn't successful, which I ignored.
Then I closed itunes, went into Ziphone 3.0 (iphone still connected to computer) and clicked on Do it all!
Jailbreak worked fine except I still had no cell signal.
To fix this I went to:
Iclarified, (the BEST iphone website *******!!) Got Kiphone patch (see Number 3 above) installed it and got my cell service back.
