Ok, I had another comms board on order so I thought: what did I have to loose? So, I cracked the iPhone up again and had a close look at the trace under 8x magnification. It is damn tiny so it was hard to make out, but after a while it seemed to me like the trace may have been damaged.

So I grabbed a scraping tool (metal and pointy) and gently, and I mean gently, scraped off all of the green off the trace in the direction of the trace. It took about 10 minutes and I could see an unbroken line of copper heading around the small black surface mount diode/capacitor (not sure which) and towards the big black square chip (S-Gold).

It all looked good, so I fired up bbupdater -f *.fls *.eep in my previously uploaded directory. It actually worked this time! Then a quick bbupdater -v to confirm and I was away.

I did a restore in iTunes back to 1.0.2 and then loaded everything up again including the software unlock (had to use iUnlock as the anySIM one gave me the no matching bytes error).

It wasn't necessary, but the rescue Wi-Fi kit is in this thread: http://www.hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=5026

Oh, to get past the Yellow Triangle I used iNdependence. Simply running it seemed to trip it to the activation screen. Then using iPhuc I uploaded lockdownd to the correct place, restarted and had access (but no Wi-Fi, etc).

the directions were in my post but the author already had another iPhone on the way when he "scraped off all of the green off the trace in the direction of the trace"
