Struggling To Install Whited00r
« on: July 14, 2011, 11:12:35 PM »
I came across Whitedoor through a Lifehacker article, I've always left my iPhone well alone, and haven't even Jailbroken it so excuse me if I am making some basic errors.

I have an iPhone 3G and am running a PowerPC G5 with 10.4.

I've followed the instructions as closely as possible, although perhaps a few steps were a bit ambiguous for a newb like me. :)

I ran Whited00r and immediately got the 1600 error. So I downloaded the version of iOS 3.1.2 that's inked in the "how to install" tutorial on the approved board. I tried to run this and iTunes popped up a 1015 error which is apparently a complaint that you're either trying to downgrade the operating system, it's recognising a jailbroken phone (it isn't) etc.

I then downloaded Blackrain as I figured I'd try it anyway. I ran this but nothing much seemed to happen. There was a mention in the forum post somewhere about needing to use something called BlackSnow first but this wasn't mentioned in the approved tutorial.

After all that I had a brick of a phone and had to restore it back to my last sync.

Can anyone tell me where I went wrong? Whited00r sounds awesome and I'd love to get it running, my phone is ridiculously slow.

Appreciate the help

Thanks for the reply. I've had a quick look at the tutorial, but the first step says "make sure you have firmware 3.1.3 on your Device". Is this not what I tried to do last night when it popped up the 1015 error stopping me from downgrading the iOS?

I downloaded 3.1.3 and put my phone into DFU mode, and tried to take the phone back to that iOS but I got the same 1015 error. :(

I'm downloading RecBoot now to see if that'll work.

You should have used the Whited00r installer that you get from Cydia… it's 99% easier to install…
