      Hi Bill,
      if you want ur IP to normal mode, you just retore (not shift+restore) from the itunes

      I managed to get my iPhone 3G rolled back to 2.1, and it works like a charm now.

      I followed those steps, and like many, got that 1013 error.

      It tooks 3 tries, and I also unhooked the USB for 20 seconds then plugged it back in, and iTunes actually deleted all of the firmware, so it was literally running nothing. So once you get to that point, close iTunes, as you don't need it anymore (and it'll only cause more headaches).

      This is for those of you running with WinPWN 2.1:

      I looked around for a while, and you can still find the firmware for it.

      Go ahead and run WinPWN, let it recognize the firmware. Now, it may crash a couple times (as there was no firmware) and/or ask you to press and hold the home and power button for 15 seconds, then hold the power for 2 seconds to restart the phone. Go ahead and do so [restart as need be].

      After you get the program to respond, and it recognizes the firmware, follow along with the instructions and [P]OWN back your phone. Good luck, I need sleep.

      I have a 3G iphone, officially unlocked by Apple which I bought in Australia but I use it here in the Philippines. When I first got the phone I didn't have any problems with it. Then I accidentally updated it to version 2.2 firmware. The phone is still okay and I am able to make and receive calls. However my problem is with SMS messages. I am able to send messages but receiving messages is a problem. Receiving SMS messages is erratic. Sometimes it comes in but it is hours late or sometimes never at all. I have reported this several times to my cellular provider SMART and they fix it and I am able to receive SMS again but after a few hours it acts up again and I am back to the problem not receiving SMS messages. Another thing I have observed is that my 3G internet access is gone. In the beginning I noticed that if I turn off the 3G feature, I am able to receive SMS messages but after a couple of complaints with my provider, now I am unable to receive SMS messages whether 3G is on or off. What a bummer! When I first got this iphone I was able to see a complete worldwide list of cellular network carriers in my Network settings, now with the 2.2 firmware I am only able to see Automatic and the 3 cellular carriers which are the ones in the Philippines. When I use the iphonebrowser application to "peek" into the network carriers folder of my iphone, I can see that the worldwide list is still there but I am perplexxed why I cannot see them in the Network settings.

      I am really beginning to hate Apple why they make this phone so difficult regarding the settings. am desperate because I spent a lot for this phone and I want to get it back to working order the way it was before. If I had known this phone was to be a major headache then I wouldn't have bought this and settled for a new Xperia sony ericsoon or some other brand instead which is easier to configure as the settings are all available to the user.

      Please help someone! S.O.S.!

      @ David, anyone knows if this pwnage tool is available for windows? thanks Accidentally upgraded my phone to 2.2, now all i get is No Service, downgraded to 2.1 still the same. So I guess the problem lies with the baseband NOT firmware?
