OK, my mates an idiot. I thought I'd say that as it'll be the first thing anyone's going post.

He got an iPhone about 2 weeks ago and last Friday a guy at his work (who was leaving that day) filled his flash drive up with 'good stuff'. Needless to say this stuffed his phone up.

I've managed to get it unbricked (thanks to google) and I now have it running 3.0 something.

The problem is it won't connect to O2. I've just found the reason, the IMEI is all zeros !

Anyone know how to fix this ? I've googled and found references to software that's a year old that only works on 1.xx firmware.

If he takes it back to an Apple store will they fix it ?

Thanks all...

I'm sure theres a program now that'll let you change it.
I'll look.

Apple won't fix it and bringing it to them will void the warranty (you've messed with the IMEI, not you but you get me)

im sure ziphone wont work on the 3fw that was for 2.1 i really cant understand how imei has been reset just by debricking it will it not let you just restore in itunes to 3.1.2


you are correct it wont work on 3fw, but you can down grade the fw to 2.1fw, i not going to go into details how or post links. I have not been on this site long enough to know how much info can be givern out without someone reporting me.:)

I fixed it by 'restoring' it to an old firmware I found googling.

ziphone was what I found to fix the IMEI but, yes it appears to only work on 2.x fw.

Can you pm me with the info rather than posting it, or I can pm you my email address . . .
