Posted by najah 8 years ago ( 09-Oct-2007 22:14:04 )

i faced the same problem as "phoneman" in Ibrickr v0.8 last night. how could it be corrected?

Posted by iphonemex 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 00:09:40 )

Same here, i tried it 1 hour ago and i get the message: Iphoneinterface encountered a problem and needs to close. Can you help us Nate? Thanks!

Posted by mittens 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 01:03:56 )

I got the same error as stated above. I used 0.9 to downgrade my phone and jailbreak it. When I started to install apps, I got the interface error.

So I just booted up 0.8 and it works fine in downloading/installing apps.

So, until 0.9 is fixed, 0.8 can be used to download/install apps as long as the 1.0.2 downgrade was completed.

Posted by iphonemex 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 07:43:59 )

I used v0.9 to jailbreak and then 0.8 to install apps. However i still get this screen on my iphone: Activate Iphone, Connect to iTunes. Is this normal? Do i have to do something else?
I followed all the steps from iBrickr and apparently it wa successful because i was able to add apps and rigtones but i still don't see the Home screen on my iPhone. Can anyone help? Thanks

I am glad to tell you that last night I was able to unlock the iphone that i bought in NY (I am and live in Guatemala, Central America) using 0.9 version to download the firmware, but when I went to browse applications I got the same error as above so I used the 0.8 version to do this and it worked, but now when I try to connect to wireless networks it says "unable to connect to network", so I can see the available networks but not connect to any of them, any ideas ??? pls help

Ita, hi! I'm from Honduras, we're neighbors. Me puedes explicar como hacer para activar. Yo ya corri el iBrickr v 0.9 pero me aparece la pantalla: Activate Iphone, connect to iTunes. Ya intente hacerlo con PACAY pero no me funciono. Me puedes ayudar? Gracias

Posted by cubelize 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 13:11:21 )

Thanks Nate...It looks like central american countries are having a hard time getting their phones unlocked...there are so many blogs on the topic of unlocking iphones but not one specifically designed for people who purchase new phones...
I just have some questions...i currently have an iphone out of the box that came preinstalled with the 1.1.1 software..now if i downgrade to 1.0.2 using ur methods...do you think in your oppinion is it wise to downgrade...until someone (meaning you the genius) figures out a way to downgrade the baseband so I can use the calling features ?...in lay man terms do I damage my phone by downgrading?
Thanks Nate to you and your team for all you have contributed...
you have freind in belize..anytime you want to visit tropical paradise...

Nate, great program. However, just like everyone else, iphoneinterface.exe encounters a problem while installing programs. I'm running 0.9 on XP. Is there a timetable on a fix? or a link to 0.8

Posted by rikicorn 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 15:27:48 )

Everything works perfect in 0.9 but i had trouble with iphoneinterface.exe
Works installing ringtones but i get the error message trying to install "applications".
Just tried with XP SP2 and Vista

Me too just like everyone else, iphoneinterface.exe encounters a problem while installing programs. Sounds and ringtunes work well. I'm running 0.9 on XP.
I bought an unlocked Iphone, it seems like it was already ran by ibrickr. My youtubes is not working though, how can I activate it? Is there a program that can make EDGE work in Montreal? Can I remove apps from my main screen? Thanks!

Posted by triforceshadows 8 years ago ( 10-Oct-2007 22:45:44 )

I managed to jail braek from reinstalling version 1.1.2 as i was silly enough to upgrade to 1.1.1
After freeing my phone its all working except i cant make calls. which i know it would not work anyway!! Everything is fine except I cant get any sounds when I use the ipod not through the iphone or through a headset. Can anyone help me in getting the sound back. To unlock the phone i used a combination of ibricker v8 and ibricker v9 as v9 seemed to crash in certain areas.

Posted by aroosh 8 years ago ( 11-Oct-2007 08:02:11 )

So essentialy at this point it seem ibrickr 0.9 has a brpoblem with the erririphoneinterface.exe while installing apps etc, and this has not beed addressed yet. Guess its back to 0.8 till then, if anyone can find it online.

rohit - if all else fails, do a 1.0.2 restore by holding shift, clicking restore in the iTunes iPhone summary screen, and choosing iPhone1,1_1.0.2_1C28_Restore.ipsw if you have it available. Since you are already running 1.0.2, you can restore to 1.0.2. I've done it many times.

Posted by asci 7 years ago ( 13-Oct-2007 08:18:37 )

I have IP Unlocked 1.02 running on WINVista. I Tried to use iBrickr v0.9. It works as browser but I can't use Application section. When I launch it it asks me to install the PXL daemon on my phone. I follow the step, it asks me to restart my phone by pressing and holding the Power button, then sliding the red slider to the left (shouldn't it be on the right???)...but after this, pressing on continue it keeps on asking to restart my phone again...like it shouldn't have installed PXL daemon. Why this? Please help!

Posted by mittens 7 years ago ( 13-Oct-2007 22:54:50 )

asci - you end up restarting twice. After the second restart it checks to make sure the pxl daemon was installed correctly. It's perfectly normal. :) Just follow your screens. ;) The nice thing about iBrickr is that it helps you along. If it says to restart, go ahead and do it. But if it is seems to be stuck in a loop, you can try to close iBrickr and reload it.

i need help.. i just got 2 phones from apple store and they all 1.1.1 to use with tmobile..so what should i do? downgrade? please any easy step by step instruction to unlock it?

Posted by zcott 7 years ago ( 15-Oct-2007 18:26:28 )

Hello Nate,

What do you have planned for future releases of iBrickr? As it's sort of like iNdependance for the Mac, we're all hoping it can almost perform a 1.1.1 jailbreak automatically. What do you have up your sleeve? :-)

Posted by jody 7 years ago ( 16-Oct-2007 21:16:46 )

I want to tell everyone that I successfully unlocked a 1.1.1 today. I want to thank Nate for all his time and effort for the greater good! iBrickr is so freakin awesome! I have done probaly 30 unlocks on 1.0.2 phones and have been holding off to try a 1.1.1 I was a little hesitate to try it on a phone I paid for. I get a call from a guy who says he tried to unlock his phone himself but was unsuccessful. I was thinking by what he was telling me it might be bricked. It was looping code on the phone. I thought ok this guy isn't very computer savy (which I am not very prolific myself but I get by). So this was a perfect chance to work on a 1.1.1 without doing anymore damage. I meet with him and he was actually quite strong with the computer skills. He installed 1.0.2 with itunes and then was using app installer. The weird thing was after the install the phone still showed to have 1.1.1 Where he messed up (besides not using iBrickr) was after the 1.0.2 install restore he was using PACAY right away instead of my prefered uploading lockdownd. I use PACAY at the end to activate YouTube. We restored the phone again through itunes and I followed iBrickr and was successful! We were jumping up and down and high fiving each other.

Posted by najah 7 years ago ( 16-Oct-2007 23:56:22 )

hey jody..congratulations for your breakthrouhg. can you share a step by step guide so that we can follow your ways. infact i have tried to do it by self and did not succeed yet,,your experience will be a great help...my email adress is : najah@itmaldives.com

Posted by racerveza 7 years ago ( 18-Oct-2007 09:58:16 )

I've got an iPhone currently running on 1.0.2, which I unlocked with iBrickr (not sure which version). If I do a 1.0.2 restore per mittens' instructions, will it revert completely to its pre-unlocked state? If so, would I then be able to upgrade to 1.1.1 without risk?

Posted by trixsigg 7 years ago ( 19-Oct-2007 13:10:07 )

Hi Nate, first congratulations!
I'm interesting to know what is the file or the configuration in the iphone file system that is responsible to make the connection between iphone and computer?


Posted by najah 7 years ago ( 23-Oct-2007 02:49:24 )

finally came back to v1.0.2 from 1.1.1, for me the ibrickr v0.91 doesnot fix the boot problem. so i restored it manually by bringing down the DFU and mode and restored 1.0.2. then i started the ibrickr,,thats it just boot the iphone form ibrickr. thats it.
can use WIFI, Safari, Ipod, youtube, all third party applications.

but the modem firmware remains as 4.1..something; giving me a default IMEI 004999.....etc..

does anbody know how to fix this.

Posted by jeffdak 7 years ago ( 24-Oct-2007 12:39:44 )


Can you check my post..


I realize a procedure to upload rigntones in 1.1.1 Iphones, could you check this and try to include in an update of ibrikr ..
so if this work for you could you include me in the credits too... ;)

Posted by roc 7 years ago ( 28-Oct-2007 00:49:36 )

I used Ibrkr for my phone to jailbreak and use 3rd party apps on my iphone BEFORE the 1.1.1 update and itunes update. Everything worked well until I realised that the main complaint I originally had with the iphone was adressed with the update (speaker and ringer volume). I never updated my phone or I Tunes and want to know if anyone can tell me how to reverse and update to 1.1.1. It seems that all the apps were cool especially NES but my internet crashes on the phone with Edge or WIFI. I dont want to update Itunes or my phone if its gonna make it a paperweight. Help?

Posted by loujob 7 years ago ( 29-Oct-2007 17:42:39 )

I'm sorry this has to do with the PDFviewer. I have no other way to contact you guys. I just wanted to suggest that it would be cool if you guys made a plugin that opened pdf's from safari into PDFviewer. That would be a cool feature.

Posted by race 7 years ago ( 31-Oct-2007 16:07:58 )

GREAT PRODUCT! I was wondering though if there is anyway to return th iPhone back to it's original(factory) settings. I have read about the iphone revirginizer, but I am not sure if it does what I am looking for. Could you help me out?

My Iphone is currently up and running. Recently a friend installed the Installer package and I started adding applications. The problem is, I started adding applications and didn't install the LAUNCH application first, so now I can't stroll down the main menu and I can't access the Installer. HELP! What can I do? Would I need to erase everything by reseting the iPhone???
Any help will be well appreciated. THANKS!!!!!!

My iphone seems to be stuck in the DFU mode (full white screen). When i run ibricker, i get the green screen telling me to restore in itunes. When restoring in itunes, the verifying software process fails resulting in an unknown error code (6) and sometimes code (2003). Ive tried both itunes ver 1.1.1 and 1.0.2, same results.

Any help just getting my iphone running would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

I hope someone might be able to help me over here...

I connect my iPhone to my computer...fire up the 'ol iBrickr...and...nothing.

After clicking the 'lil error link in the bottom right hand corner, I see this...

s_iBrickr version: 0.91
e_Problem registering main callback: -402653180
USBMuxListenerCreate: No error

My phone's been unlocked since September or so, and i've actually used iBrickr once or twice (and on two different computers!), so i'm wondering what's different now? I haven't modified anything whatsoever (other than when I used iBrickr v.8, jailbreak and PACAY back in September).

Could someone help, please?
