    Hey i was wondering if there was a way to put the iphone firmware on the chinese iphone clone. i bought the phone from dhgate.com. here it is if you would like to look at it;


    [Click here to view the link]

    Anyways, it has all the logos on it, even the 16gb and 3G, as well as the apple logo (shiny and silver). Yet it has the china iphone (hiphone, sciphone, etc.) firmware on it and i would like to know whether or not it would be possible to put an iphone firmware on it and NOT brick the phone. I would try myself but i do not want to risk bricking the phone, so I would like to get a few opinions, or previous experience in doing this to see if it is possible. And if it is how would I go about doing this.. maybe a walkthrough or something would be nice. I've looked online for about 8 hours for my answer to this question but i can't find it anywhere. So i figure i would turn to you guys to help me out here as most of you would probably have more experience and knowledge as to if it is possible or how to do it.

    Thanks,

    SgtKelley

    If I where to guess its all the same firmware if its put out by apple.
    Its probably just the service providers/default language.

    If it has something with the service providers then thats the baseband that needs to be cracked. Basically you need to wait for the soft unlock

    you can put the phone back in english simply by going to the settings.

    The phones firmware is the china iphone clone firmware. not put out by apple. it is a replica, (i did call apple cuz it is copyright infringement to sell a phone labeled with the apple, and called the iphone, but is not the iphone. It is in english, but it is completely different software that looks similar to the iphones. it is unlocked, and i have t-mobile. I do use this phone and it works, just i would like to know if i could put an iphone firmware on it to replace the iphone clone firmware (not apple).

    what i would personaly try is:
    download the program Quickpwn
    go through those steps off of iphone-hacks.com
    jailbreak it and in that process it upgrades it to firmwware 2.2.28
    let me know if that works or if you have a question p/m me

I too want to put Apple Iphone firmware onto it. Did you ever figure out how to do this? and is there anybody out there with more ideas because I want the same thing as SgtKelley. Thanks. You can e-mail me personally at: supervision2012@gmail.com
