EXPLANATION :

1. Bootloader Version

The iPhone EDGE has two bootloaders

  • 3.9 which is the oldest bootloader and was used on FW 1.1.x
  • 4.6 the latest bootloader used on the new firmwares

2.  Neuter

A bootloader that uses the Neuter, allows us to have full control over our baseband. So all the restrictions applied by the bootloader are gone.

3.  FakeBlank

All the iPhone hackers, want to be able to run a series of payloads directly in the rebooting process. They can use BootNeuter and choose to activate the FakaBank Bootloader.

4. Unlocking

BootNeuter lets us unlock the baseband. Basically this will unlock your iPhone EDGE, so make sure you turn it ON.

NOTE: DO NOT interrupt the flashing process. It may take a while.

NOTE: IF you need to restore your iDevice in order to update to 3.1.2 or you just want to restore, DO NOT restore from backups. Set the iPhone as a new device.
