    Hello ppl
    Last week i bought my first iphone. got me a 3gs upgraded on 3.1. I read all about JB and unlocking so i knew what i'm buying. I asked the guy if he JB'd it pre installing 3.1 and he said he used redsnow0.8 for JB and unltrasnow via cydia for unlocking.
    now, beeing my first iphone, didnt really know how itunes&everything works and while trying to follow a guide on JB'ing/unlocking i installed 3.1.2 instead of putting a custom firmware )
    i know Geo is about to release blacra1n but i also read
    "Unlock iPhone 3GS Firmware 3.1 on Windows" (i cant link it in here beeing my first post ) ... a few topics below
    and ppl having success with it. will i be able to do it to on 3.1.2? :/


    Thank you.

    i'm going to try it, thank you very much


    "Its possible to unlock iPhone 3.1.2 but only if your baseband has not been updated to 05.11.07 or the newer baseband, you must create a custom firmware that uses the 04.26.08 baseband."

    what does that mean? (as i said, i'm 1week old into iphones, heh)
    i mean, if i get a 04 baseband, can i also unlock it? :S

    You cannot downgrade the baseband.

    yes, i updated phone to 3.1.2 again with itunes, then used 3.0.1 with redsnow(both from their links).
    update: redsnow is still stuck at same point, but iphone booted by itself. it's in same unlocked unJB'ed stage :S

    edit: btw, is this normal? when i power the phone, the "restoring" background shows(itunes and the usb cable), phone is keylocked and i can only "slide for emergency" (this is the way i bought the phone)
    edit2: did i have to do those JB tutorial steps with a SIM inside? (dont think it matters imo) :S

    Try to jailbreak it again with the directions posted here Jailbreak and unlock iPhone 3.1.2 and then you should have cydia/apps.

    u think it could work doing it again? xD

    upg to 3.1.2->snow it with 3.0.1 fw file on the site?(just to be sure i got it straight, since 3.1 or 3.1.2 fw files arent recognized by snow)

    The Jailbreak posted there is not %100 guaranteed to work, So try it again and if it does not work I would just wait it out. (Make sure you use right firmware)

    ok, i give up
    whats happening on the PC aint corresponding with whats happening on the phone either. aparently.
    i put it in recovery, snow goes to next step auto, it says "rebooting", then it start it's process. but the phone stays a few more seconds on recovery more after snow's rebooting message, screen goes black(i think progress bar is already 10-15%filled at this point lulz) but with backlight on.
    at end snow says "booting" and "done" but phone is still on blank screen(stays so quite awhile, so i just turned it off manually :/)...

    ill just wait for blackra1n most likely >_<


    if an unlock doesent appear (soon ar at all) would you recommend NOT using a turbosim(if not, why?)? cos i was thinking of buying one after i JB it untill an unlock appears :/
    10-10-2009 04:05 PM
  20. RolandX's Avatar
    nothing new i suppose? i need to activate it somehow so i can JB it, right? (blackra1n didnt do anything ... well, it uploaded stuff, geo's photo on my iphone, reboot, back to emergency calls only).
    Guess i'll have to wait for devteam's and hope it includes a hacktivate, or hope some1 will release a hacktivation metod?

    edit: i know in what carrier it's locked and i can get one of those SIMs, will that help me activate phone+JB+unlock? :S (i got a friend where the phone is from, so i cant "test and tell you" before i know i have atleast a chance it will work :P)

    thank you

    Who are you trying to use as your carrier?

    yes now u need to activate it with a att&t sim the tutorial for blackra1n says IT DOES NOT activate the iphone after the jalbreak and after jailbreak with blackra1n us still CANNOT unlock it YET.
    10-12-2009 10:58 AM
  23. RolandX's Avatar
    yes, i know blackra1n doesent activate
    carrier is either WIND either TIM(italy)... i got a vodafone carrier(dont think this was your question)

    why i asked because it was known that 3.1 cant be JBed but tramain gave me that link for an "unorthodox" one ... (didnt work tho). was hoping maybe something like this might pop for an unlock, or the fact that i can get a valid SIM might help :/
    aka activate it, JB it and then maybe unlock it(like i said above)
