    Is it possible to unlock my iphone 3G after I jailbroke it with Spirit? Is it as simple as downloading snow in Cydia? Someone please help! Thanks.

    I'm only on 3.1.2. Is it still possible to unlock? And if so, how?

    Yes. Jailbreak with blackra1n and unlock with sn0w. There's tons of guides if you google it..

    It's already jailbroken with Spirit. Possible to somehow download snow without having to re-jailbreak it again?

    Jailbroken is jailbroken. So you only need to unlock with sn0w..

    Hi, Sorry to jump on your thread, however, this relates to a query I have too!

    I have an iPhone 3GS (3.1.2).

    I have already jailbroken it yesterday, using BlackRain, and unlocked it using Snow. All is well thank goodness!

    However, I would like to have an 'untethered jailbreak' instead - ie - not have to reload BlackRain, each time my iPhone has been turned off..

    So, is it possible to now 're - jailbreak' using Spirit, and then to 're - unlock' using Snow?

    I assume I'd have to restore the iPhone to original settings in iTunes (3.1.3?), before I did this too?

    Any pointers would be most appreciated.

    Cheers - Sim

    If u upgrade to 3.1.3 thru iTunes, it will upgrade ur baseband to 5.12.01 and u CANT unlock that baseband.

    Thanks for the info rdiddy_25.

    So, I need to leave it as 3.1.2 then.

    Am I able to 'restore' my iPhone - ie - to factory settings (3.1.2 as it was / is)
    and then, re - jailbreak using Spirit, and then unlock using Snow?

    Many Thanks,

    Sim.

    My worry is, that, doesn't iTunes automatically upgrade you to the newest version of the iPhone OS, if I select 'restore'? ie - 3.1.3, leaving me no choice?

    Go to settings-general- reset. It will reset the phone back to factory settings without upgrading u to 3.1.3 or the baseband. Just clears the JB and puts the phone back to factory settings. Then u can re-jailbreak with spirit then unlock and you'll be good to go

    Okay so jailbreak with spirit and unlock with what? That question still isn't very clear to me and I need my phone unlocked. I'm running 3.1.2.

    Only way to get 3.1.3 unlocked (that I've seen mentioned) is to use one of the pwnage tools to create a custom 3.1.3 without upgrading the baseband. I do not know how to do it (I don't need my phone unlocked), so find the thread, read carefully, and proceed at your own peril.

    There are a few unlock tools, such as ultrasn0w, which is in Cydia after u JB. So reset ur phone thru the settings reset. JB with Spirit then unlock with ultrasn0w. Good luck.

    Okay,

    Now it's saying I need iTunes 9 but I'm running iTunes 9...what should I do? If I reinstall iTunes, I'll lose my backups right?

    ETA

    Help help help. I erased the data, however now when I connect to iTunes it says it's in recovery mode and won't allow me to restore from my last back up. I can't remember how to reset it from the actual phone and I DON'T want to update and restore to 3.1.3. What do I do now?

    Go to Felixburns.com and download the firmware you want. then go to itunes and hit shift then restore. once you do that select the firmware you jus downloaded and BAM your iphone is restored without going through the itunes update to 3.1.3....

    That no longer works as I so painfully found out last night. Apple does not sign any previous firmware anymore. Thanks for your reply though.

    Sim, I've been trying to figure out the same thing for days now. Is it possibel to jailbreak with Spirit and unlock with sn0w? Lol, no one seems to be able to answer that question. Please let me know if you find out. My main question is: How ould I get sn0w to unlock my phone after the Spirit jbreak. Is it downloadable? Do I get it from Cydia? Lol, I'm sure you feel my pain here. I think the reason most are unable to answer this question is bcuz they are jailbreaking with black rain, not spirit.

    Well MojoJojo,

    I am not sure because I never made it to that point. I messed up by selecting reset all settings instead of erase all content and settings. I'm still have the JB which I love by the way...I hated having to reboot using blackra1n and something always froze, didn't turn on etc. but I digress.

    I believe you can get sn0w through Cydia but I would use caution and allow someone who has some experience with this confirm. Alli and Lucifer both have a lot of knowledge about this type of thing IMO, so I would ask either or them. Rdiddy seems to as well just doesn't have the post count up (As if that means anything). Sorry I couldn't be much help.

    If u haven't upgraded ur baseband to 05.12.01, then YES, u can JB with Spirit and then unlock with ultrasn0w which u can dl from cydia. That is just one of the tools to unlock ur iPhone.
