    Right i have an iPhone 3gs 3.1.2 on the 05.11.07 baseband (think thats the numbers but its the new one)

    its week 50 too.

    I have restored in itunes buy clicking the restore button and also tried it by pressing the shift key before pushing the restore button, then selected the IIPSW from my computer.

    I then ran Blackra1n and jailbroke the phone.

    Installed cydia and snow and just says searching or it will come up with O2-UK abd has the 3G symbol but just syas "call failed" when i try to call.

    I have tried with itunes closed, open and also by closing it from the task manager.

    I want to smash it now, been trying for 3 days over and over.

    also sometimes i get error 1600 on itunes.

    Help would be great

    Still the same?

    What is the correct way of doing the JB and unlock.

    Do i need to put the simcard in before after, need to restart etc?

    Cheers again

    Just a little thing.

    I bought the phone off someone, if it was stolen how would i know.

    Would this cause the problem above?

    What carrier are you using? If you're using a carrier other that O2, the phone may be locked to O2 and you may need to do an unlock.

    Don't download any firmwares from any sites. There's no need to even use PwnageTool right now either. Connect your 3G[s] to iTunes. (Hopefully, you're running the newest version of iTunes) When it asks you if you want to update your iPhone, SAY YES. This will erase any an all jailbreak and unlocks previously there. DON'T PANIC.

    Download and install the official firmware, 3.1.2 from iTunes.

    Go to blackra1n.com and download blackra1n.

    Now, after you restore from iTunes, when everything is about 98% done, it will ask you to insert the SIM card that came with your phone from AT&T. If you have AT&T, great. If you don't, a/k/a T-Mobile, INSERT THAT SIM CARD, and then follow these instructions.

    Open up blackra1n on your PC, and then click "Make it rain" and jailbreak your phone. This will also 'hacktivate' your phone with your alternate SIM card. (Note: follow directions at the end of this post to fix Push Notifications, YouTube and Wi•Fi for hacktivated iPhones)

    YOU MAY NEED TO ATTEMPT THIS MULTIPLE TIMES FOR IT TO WORK CORRECTLY. Sometimes there are minor errors. Let it do it's thing. It is okay and even somewhat expected.

    Once blackra1n.app is installed to your springboard (a/k/a iPhone home screen), choose to install "sn0w"( a/k/a blacksn0w) from your iPhone. Once again, make sure it that you connect to Wi•Fi first. It will be the only way you can install Cydia/Rock if you're not on AT&T.

    1) Open up the "blackra1n.app" on your iPhone.
    2) Tap on "sn0w" until a green check mark appears next to it.
    3) Tap "install".
    4) Watch for the splash screen telling you that it was successful.
    5) Turn your iPhone off.
    6) Insert your SIM card.
    7) Turn the iPhone back on.

    After installing sn0w, install Cydia.

    1) Open up the "blackra1n.app" on your iPhone.
    2) Tap on "Cydia" until a green check mark appears next to it.
    3) Tap "install".

    Cydia will ask you questions, and to update. Select "Graphical User", and "Update All". Let it restart and reboot. Once it does it's thing...

    If you have data or MMS problems with ANY carrier, you may want to google or wikipedia "iPhone APN Settings" to find a way to fix those issues. However, if the plan for the cell carrier SIM card you've inserted does not include data, then your Internet/e-Mail/maps/gps etc won't work. You will have to add data/MMS to that SIM cards plan for them to officially work.

    Voilà. You're updated, jailbroken, and unlocked on the newest OS.

    For some, the new blackra1n HACKTIVATED jailbreak was causing problems with Wi-Fi, YouTube, and Push Notifications. Here is a quick guide on how to fix these problems.

    1. Go to Settings>General>Reset>Reset Network Settings, then click "OK"
    2. Reboot your iPhone, when it comes back on Wi•Fi should be fixed, but next time you reboot you have to do this again.

    YouTube and Push Notifications for "hacktivated" iPhones.

    1. Go to Cydia
    2. Tap Manage at the bottom
    3. Tap Sources
    4. Tap edit in the right hand corner
    5. Tap add.
    6. Type cydia.iphoneil.net
    7. Tap done
    8. Search for "PushFix" and tap on the first result
    9. Install then confirm
    10. Reboot your iPhone.



    1). You get the error. (in this case, 1601)
    3). If the iPhone is still on, reboot/restart the phone. If it's off or unresponsive, then you'll need to kick it out of DFU mode next.
    4). Press and hold the power and home button for some time to kick the phone out of DFU mode.
    5). iTunes will finally detect it again.
    6). Now try to simply restore it - click on the "Restore" button on iTunes, and voilà. It SHOULD work if everything went correctly.
