    Hi I did what you said, the only thing i did different is that i didn't check the box "deactivate phone"... when i completed the jailbreak, i was still on "no service", but at least my ios 5 was up and running... I even rebooted twice to make sure it wasn't just taking a while to take effect...

    so i started the jailbreak again, but this time, it came up as if it was back to a factory restore! not letting me go back to finish the setup, it tries to activate and says "your sim is not one of the prescribed carriers"... did i loose my jailbreak? is all hope lost? please help!

    Thanks,

    Maybe you guys need to do a customize ipsw since you need unlocking.

    Sorry to hear that. This is not for unlock of the phone but for jailbreak.
    The unlock portion is the easiest part. I've been trying to crack this nut for days and this walkthrough was finally what did the trick.

    My phone was Jailbroken AND unlocked with ultrasn0w prior to IOS5 upgrade - so the process is just a little different.

    1. don't check the deactivate box - that will allow you to boot into IOS5 without going through the activation process.

    2. run Cydia - go to Manage then Sources then select repo666.ultrasn0w.com. Reinstall ultrasn0w. (my iPhone rebooted after the reinstall)
    3. Put in your SIM card and after a few minutes you should have full bars.

    I guest tik tok is completed right https://discussions.apple.com/message/16364368#16364368 . Who was accidently upgrade ios 5 with BB 6.15 will get this problem especially 3GS. IOS 5 tend to update the BB so leaving the ipad BB corrupted. I am not sure about other device or non-jailbreak user.



    Do as Tik Tok guide it will be solve...it will reflash the ipad BB using redsnow (assume you was using ipad BB, if not dont ever do that, wait new ios update)..i like to call this ipad BB doom. The best part is you cannot leave this ipad BB world



    i did little bit different way but the same.. .downgrade and reinstall the ipad BB..then upgrade using custom ipsw 5.0 from snowbreeze...everything work. the point is you need to reflash the ipad BB because upgrading stock ipsw make it unstable.



    Conclusion, safest way to upgrade ios with ipad BB is using custom ipsw because it preserve baseband.

    And thank you, you're the one who finally led to me solving my problem. Snowbreeze for the custom IPSW was the missing part of the equation for me. You're a lifesaver. No custom IPSW via redsn0w for windows </3

    I had the exact same problem as you. Took me about 12 hrs to solve this.

    This is what i did.

    1. Connected the phone to my mac and launched iTunes.
    2. Removed the sim-card from the phone.
    3. Put the phone in DFU mode to do a recovery with iTunes.
    4. When itunes was done and the phone had booted I started redsn0w (Using version: 0.9.9b5).
    5. Put the phone back in DFU-mode so i can jailbreak it.
    6. When I got to the select options in redsn0w, I selected "Install Cyda", "Install ipad baseband" and "de-activate phone"
    7. Waited for it to finish, and after it booted up I got the message "No sim card inserted". I then inserted my sim-card
    8. Continued with the ios 5 setup on the phone and had no issue activating it nor did I get "no service"-message after setup was done.

    This did the trick for me so I could activate my phone and use it agian. Hopefully this works for you too.

    Step 4:
    Install ios 5 on iPhone with itunes

    Step 8:
    This is the step you need to do on your iPhone and it's not complicated, just follow the instructions on the iPhone display.

    download ios 5 firmware then
    use sn0wbreeze 2.8b8 to make custo, ios 5 firmware with the first option which is baseband preservation mode.
    use itunes to restore to iphone
    go through the activation steps on iphone
    the phone will start up and baseband preserved and not jailbroken
    you can jailbreak anytime using redsn0w the latest version 0.9.9b8
    thanx for reading, cheers.

    Hi I'm new to this forum, and really need some help. I have and a 3gs that had the old 3.1.3 firmware on it, but it froze and by accident it got updated to the latest version ios5. I'm pretty sure it was jailbroken/unocked untethered b4. Now i am having SERIOUS signal problems. Ill get full bars for a min and then keeps searching for signal.

    Firmware : 05.16.05
    Ios 5 (9A334)

    It's pretty much a useless old ipod touch right now. And i really need a working phone for obvious reasons. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm pretty new to all of this, i had a friend jail break/unlock it 2 yrs ago and I never updated it (prob only connected it to a cpu abt 10 times in 2 yrs)

    I read up and saw the bet bet is to update firware to the ipad one, which disables gps (but i don't have a data plan and really have no use for it)

    Thanks alot in advance....just need a working phone!

    Just try a fresh Restore since your AT&T no need to update the baseband

    Okay, basically once you update to the iPad baseband you cannot go back. You must continue using custom IPSW files or the phone won't work.

    bangal, what you need to do is first to make sure that the phone is on you're desired baseband. Then download sn0wbreeze for 5.0.1 and create a custom IPSW using the "Baseband Preservation" option. The custom IPSW will preserve the iPad baseband, but will not jailbreak your phone.
