iPhone 3G / Re: OpeniBoot CANT RESTORE!
« on: December 29, 2010, 04:42:25 PM »
As it was said alraedy, you do not need to unistall openiboot to properly restore
But if the iphone gives you hard time trying to restore I suggest using iReb by iH8sn0w
It helped me restore when I had problems with the restore stopping in the middle ( as you described)

Notice: works on windows only.

good luck

iPhone 3G / Re: How can I repair iOS with Idroid? [help needed]
« on: December 29, 2010, 03:35:12 PM »
I tried reading your messages and couldn't quite understand everything you said, I guess I dont have enough knowlage,
But I do have some experiance with such a case,
As I posted a while ago I've renamed my MobileSubstrate.dylib file by mistake ( which I hope is familiar to what you did)
and eventually manged to solve that problem by uploading a copy of the desired file with the correct name using OpeniBoot's CONSOLE (couldn't get adb to work...)
so if you manage to find a copy of the file you've renamed online you can try doing this:

get into openiboot console in your iphone
use the 'loadibec'/'oibc' ( If forgot which of them does that) to be able to send commands
get a copy of MobileSubstrate.dylib to the folder where your loadibec/oibc is
then use:
to upload it to the memory and then, remember the number of bytes the conosle tells you!
fs_add /var FILEPATH/FILENAME 0x09000000 #OfBytes
fs_add /var Library/MobileSubstrate/MobileSubstrate.dylib 0x09000000 14416)
to copy it from the memory to the filesystem.

Please note: It might screw some stuff in your iphone even thou it SHOULDN'T as I understood from nickp666 the 'area' of 0x09000000 is safe to upload files to but I cannot promise, but it did work for me :T

Good luck!

iPhone 3G / Re: install applications (apk files)

I couldn't see it mentioned in this theard sp I'll just point this out:
I managed to install APK directly from the iDroid browser, so I say: why bother with ADB?

Bootlace / Re: Bootlace 2.0 - Install iDroid from your device itself
« on: November 07, 2010, 01:09:32 PM »
OpeniBoot can't be installed on 4.1 currently due to a change in the iBoot 4.1 USB protocol. We are looking into this. So although Bootlace will run fine you will not be able to boot iDroid once installed.

I guess Bootlace was updated since this post was posted or iOS fixed itself to fit bootlance O_o
so, just pointing it out - Bootlance works perfectly for me - 3G, iOS 4.1 :)

iPhone 3G / Re: Renaming a file using openiboot's console
« on: November 03, 2010, 05:11:10 PM »
I'm glad to hear it is possible but I'm afraid I will have to ask you to help me a bit more,
So, If I understood you corectly I should use fs_extract like that:
fs_extract /var/Library/MobileSubstrate.dylib.bak <location>
the only ptoblem is im not sure what location I need to write,
 Can I just overwrite data at 0x1 or should I look for a location filled with zeros? (For example I found 0x3b9247df using the md command to dump it.)

Then, I'm guessing, I would need to use nand_write?
only ptoblem is I don't know what what to enter after the nand_write command,
I means:
<data> <spare> <bank> <page> and <ecc>
I think guessing all of these won't get me anywhere, so can you explain each of them to me please?

and finally if I ever reach this stage, fs_add to get the file back from the memory, right?

I know it might be a pain in the ass to explain this but I belive me I'm a fast learner and you won't need to explain it more then once.

Thank you again for replaying :)

iPhone 3G / Re: Renaming a file using openiboot's console
« on: November 02, 2010, 06:01:26 PM »
I am sorry if I wasn't clear enough,
If I will be able to rename mobilesubstrate.dylib back it won't fix my restore errors, it will be able to load springboard again like it did before
and then I wouldn't need a restore ~

so back to my question, is this possiable to do with the console? also, i've read in the iDroid wiki that you can "compile openiboot with ENABLE_EXTRA=YES" , how do you do that? what "extended commands" can you use if you do so?

Thanks for your help :)

iPhone 3G / [SOLVED]Renaming a file using openiboot's console
« on: November 01, 2010, 04:40:56 PM »
Hello :D
So, I've recently screwed up my iphone and was desperate to find a solution when I thought about openiboot and surprisingly, it seems like I'm on the right path :)

Long story short - MyWi got my iphone into a reboot loop, I read somewhere that renaming MobileSubstrate.dylib to something else would force my phone to boot in to safe mode, and as you can guess, that didn't work.

Believe me I wouldn't get into such a mess with openiboot if I wasn't really desperate - iTunes won't restore, 16XX errors EVEN with iREB :/

So basically only thing i need you guys to tell me know is -
is there ANYWAY to rename a file from console?
If it helps, I did mange to 'extract' the desired file to memory (no idea what that means, seemed to me like somthing usefull)

Sorry if this so the wrong forum, if it is please move my post

Thanks in advance!

figured it out,
I've found MobileSubstrate.dylib download so I've used
to upload it to the memory and then
fs_add /var Library/MobileSubstrate/MobileSubstrate.dylib 0x09000000 14416
to copy it from the memory to the filesystem.


iPhone 2G / Re: Broken power button & openiboot

Any other way you know how to force your iphone to shutdown if it gets stuck and your power button doesnt work?

If it gets stuck, cant you just wait for the battery's power to end?
and as much as i tried the volume buttons do nothing on the openiboot screen
but never mind, I will buy a new back housing for my iphone and then try android.

thanks for your help~

iPhone 2G / Broken power button & openiboot
« on: May 01, 2010, 07:56:23 AM »
Yesterday I red a tutorial on how to install openiboot and android on my iphoen 2g
the only problem i have is, my power button doesnt work :'|
so as stupid as it might sound i cannot swich between the OS's in openiboot
Is there anyway anyone knows about making the volum buttons change the selection in openiboot or a command that i can use in terminal to send the power button keypress action to the device?
or even how to change the openiboot.img3's (if thats the correct file) buttons?

Thanks in advance,
