Jailbroken iPhone 3G 3.1.2 froze - how to restore?
I was using my jailbroken (with blackra1n) 3.1.2 iphone 3G today when it froze. I hard rebooted it( power+home) and got the apple logo for a while, followed by the apple with turning wheel, but it wouldn't go past this.
So I put it into restore mode , connected it to iTunes, then hit restore and upgrade to 3.1.3( the only option). My plan was to jailbreak it afterward restoring, then restore from a backup to get all my apps/data back.
However, now it only shows a "emergency call" screen, likely because it upgraded to 3.1.3 and found out it was jailbroken. I'm not sure what to do now. Can I still jailbreak it using this guide, then restore from backup: Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3 with Sn0wbreeze | Redmond Pie
Or am I screwed?
Thanks so much and cheers!

That's what it sounds like to me too. It sounds like you were unlocked using your phone on a different carrier and when you upgraded,youdestroyed the ability for your SIM Card to be read because it doesn't belong to the 'official' carrier of the iPhone.
It was unlocked and working on a non-official carrier before the restore.
After the restore it upgraded the baseband to 05.12.01. I managed to downgrade the firmware to 3.1.2 and restore all my contacts/messages etc, but the baseband remains at the upgraded 05.12.01. I tried using Fuzzyband to downgrade the baseband to one that's unlockable but the Bootloader is 06.02 so that doesn't work either :/
Are there any other options or am I screwed royally here? Would it be possible to restore to factory settings before 3.1.3 and the upgraded baseband? Or do I have to wait for the iPhone Dev Team to release their unlock whenever that may happen?
