« on: August 04, 2011, 09:30:00 PM »
Hi!

I have been trying to install OpeniBoot following this instructions http://www.idroidproject.org/wiki/Installing_OpeniBoot and when I have to write oibc I have this error:

Failed to open OpeniBoot connection (2).

Thanks for everything.

Can you be more specific?

What Operating System are you using? What iOS version?

Did loadibec work?

Yes you need a computer to run openiboot.

You can use Bootlace if you don't want to use a computer.

Sorry to bump this, but is the server down for bootlace and openiboot or whatever? :<
I downloaded bootlace to my itouch 1g, and I installed the iDroid thing but when I tried to install the openiboot thing it said the whole
'unable to retrieve firmware from apple servers'.
Is there any hope, and by firmware does it mean like os 3.1.2, or what?
Sooo confuzzled... 
Please excuse my noobiness, as I am a newbie :D
Thank you, and please let me know :)

The server is down on Apple's side. As it said, unable to retrieve firmware from apple servers.

Firmware is 3.1.2. It is needed for the patching of the kernel so OpeniBoot can be installed.

You have to install OpeniBoot manually sadly.

There is a workaround that may be a little easier that will let you keep using bootlace, but it requires you modify your hosts file on the ipod (which isn't that bad).

if you run a local webserver on a machine on your network and put these firmwares in the following folders of your webroot:
Code: [Select]
iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw in content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-7268.20091008.32pNe/
iPhone1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw in content.info.apple.com/iPhone/061-7481.20100202.4orot/
iPod1,1_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw also in ProtectedAsset/iPodTouch/061-7479.20100202.Secrc/

then add these entries to the hosts file on your iPod Touch (/etc/hosts) where "<localcomputer>" is your webserver's ipaddress:
Code: [Select]
<localcomputer>     appldnld.apple.com.edgesuite.net
<localcomputer>     pfd.apple.com

then hard power cycle your ipod touch (or issue the reboot command via ssh on it) and when it comes back up things should work.

Now I know this is not exactly a newbie friendly fix, but it's a quite a bit easier than installing openiboot manually. Hope this helps someone.  ;D
