    Hi guys,
    I have iphone 3Gs (44 week according to the SN) accidently updated from 4.1 to 6.1.Before the update it was jailbroken.
    Now after the restore it has firmware 6.1 and baseband 6.15.
    The restore was completed, but the phone wont activate, it wont recognize the sim card eighter. After choosing language and all other stuff, after connected with wi-fi i says try again after some time and when I connected it to iTunes it says the same thing.

    Thank you for your time.

    You need to hacktivate it. Download and run the latest version of redsn0w.

    evasi0n won't activate the phone. That's why we're doing it with redsn0w. And yes, follow the steps in the tutorial.

    After you complete these steps, open Cydia and install evasi0n untether. Also install ultrasn0w so you'll be able to use the phone on your carrier.

    Also you can try sn0wbreeze 2.9.9 , just open it, browse for ios6.1 official ipsw, select simple mode (it includes jailbreak+activation+baseband preservation) and press next,
    the custom firmware will be created on your desktop.
    Later on put your into dfu mode and on sn0wbreeze just continue with iReb (this will put your device into pwned dfu mode).
    Go into itunes and shift+click on "restore your iphone" , and select the custom firmware which is on your desktop.

    That's an another way.
    Ps: afaik ipad baseband causes issues on 6.1, you may need to downgrade it with redsn0w.

    You need to downgrade your baseband. Use this tutorial.

    Hello everyone!

    It has been exactly two years since me and Milena met for the first time in this thread. Since then we have met in real life and have started going out together. Even though we lived in different countries for the past two years, we are moving together later this summer.

    We're very happy to have met each other and wanted to share our happiness with you all, as you and iMore have made it possible. The last two years have been amazing and we look forward to our future together.

    May all of you find your soul mate in the world like we did.
    Iskren and Milena
