    Hi All

    ok - have attempted to upgrade to ios4 using both Redsn0w and pwnage 4.01.

    All goes fine and can get to spring board and have activated ok.

    However, after numerous attempts I cannot get Cydia on the springboard to unlock for any carrier. Have ticked and unticked the install Cydia option but with no success.

    Using latest Itunes and on baseband 05.13.04 and Mac OS X 10.

    Am I stuck until for time being until a new JB comes out or am I doing something stupid here

    If you have a iPhone 3GS made before week 40 (2009) currently you can perform a jailbreak using and pwnagetool. The week number is usually the 4th and 5th digit of the serial number. Devices made after week 40 cannot jailbreak iOS 4.0 yet.

    iClarified - Unlock Wizard for iPhone

    Jailbreak iOS 4 with PwnageTool 4.0 / 4.01 [How to Guide] | Redmond Pie

    you have Cydia so you are obviously JBen so try this

    Unlock 05.13.04 / 05.12.01 Baseband on iPhone 3GS 3G, iOS 4 with ultrasn0w 0.93 | Redmond Pie

    Start Cydia on your iPhone.

    Touch on Manage tab on the bottom.

    Now touch on Sources as seen in the screenshot below:

    Touch on Edit and then on Add. You will be prompted to enter a url source . Type in the link and touch on Add Source.

    Cydia will now automatically update your sources by following a series of automated steps.

    After installation is completed. Search for ultrasn0w 0.92 in Cydia and install this application. This app will automatically unlock your iPhone 3GS so that you can use it with any carrier.

    Step 3: Now simply restart your iPhone and voila! you should now have a fully unlocked iPhone 3GS, on iOS 4.


    So the answer would be "you're doing something stupid" Just kidding man I couldn't resist that you left yourself wide open

    Read somewhere that if you plan to use the phone with T-Mo make sure you disable 3G since the phone doesn't work with their 3G.
