any new tips
Hi I did what you said, the only thing i did different is that i didn't check the box "deactivate phone"... when i completed the jailbreak, i was still on "no service", but at least my ios 5 was up and running... I even rebooted twice to make sure it wasn't just taking a while to take effect...
so i started the jailbreak again, but this time, it came up as if it was back to a factory restore! not letting me go back to finish the setup, it tries to activate and says "your sim is not one of the prescribed carriers"... did i loose my jailbreak? is all hope lost? please help!

My phone was Jailbroken AND unlocked with ultrasn0w prior to IOS5 upgrade - so the process is just a little different.
1. don't check the deactivate box - that will allow you to boot into IOS5 without going through the activation process.
2. run Cydia - go to Manage then Sources then select repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Reinstall ultrasn0w. (my iPhone rebooted after the reinstall)
3. Put in your SIM card and after a few minutes you should have full bars.

I guest tik tok is completed right https://discussions.apple.com/message/16364368#16364368 . Who was accidently upgrade ios 5 with BB 6.15 will get this problem especially 3GS. IOS 5 tend to update the BB so leaving the ipad BB corrupted. I am not sure about other device or non-jailbreak user.
Do as Tik Tok guide it will be solve...it will reflash the ipad BB using redsnow (assume you was using ipad BB, if not dont ever do that, wait new ios update)..i like to call this ipad BB doom. The best part is you cannot leave this ipad BB world
i did little bit different way but the same.. .downgrade and reinstall the ipad BB..then upgrade using custom ipsw 5.0 from snowbreeze...everything work. the point is you need to reflash the ipad BB because upgrading stock ipsw make it unstable.
Conclusion, safest way to upgrade ios with ipad BB is using custom ipsw because it preserve baseband.

download ios 5 firmware then
use sn0wbreeze 2.8b8 to make custo, ios 5 firmware with the first option which is baseband preservation mode.
use itunes to restore to iphone
go through the activation steps on iphone
the phone will start up and baseband preserved and not jailbroken
you can jailbreak anytime using redsn0w the latest version 0.9.9b8
thanx for reading, cheers.

Hi I'm new to this forum, and really need some help. I have and a 3gs that had the old 3.1.3 firmware on it, but it froze and by accident it got updated to the latest version ios5. I'm pretty sure it was jailbroken/unocked untethered b4. Now i am having SERIOUS signal problems. Ill get full bars for a min and then keeps searching for signal.
Firmware : 05.16.05
Ios 5 (9A334)
It's pretty much a useless old ipod touch right now. And i really need a working phone for obvious reasons. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty new to all of this, i had a friend jail break/unlock it 2 yrs ago and I never updated it (prob only connected it to a cpu abt 10 times in 2 yrs)
I read up and saw the bet bet is to update firware to the ipad one, which disables gps (but i don't have a data plan and really have no use for it)
Thanks alot in advance....just need a working phone!

Okay, basically once you update to the iPad baseband you cannot go back. You must continue using custom IPSW files or the phone won't work.
bangal, what you need to do is first to make sure that the phone is on you're desired baseband. Then download sn0wbreeze for 5.0.1 and create a custom IPSW using the "Baseband Preservation" option. The custom IPSW will preserve the iPad baseband, but will not jailbreak your phone.
