Possible to do recovery without installing baseband?

Hi Community,

I am wondering if its possible to customise firmware to remove the baseband installation process.

I currently have an iphone 7 which is just going to end up becoming a data recovery due to GOD knows what the last repair shop did. However, i can nearly install firmware up until the dreaded 80% install, -1 baseband error (using 3U with data being saved option ticked)

I have done all repairs around this error and cant invest anymore time on the project, but just wondered if this is at all possible??

Thoughts and advice?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

on 3u did you try unticking reserve baseband while flashing under the pro flash section

Yep. Still fails at that point


what about removing the baseband ic itself, the phone will boot without it


It boots to recovery mode, but I can still flash while keeping data. If I remove the baseband, won’t it still fail in the recovery process??


Did you ever got to solve this?


I hope he attempted exit recovery mode on 3utools becaused failed restore / update attempts keep a phone stuck in recovery mode.
