I've been all over the internet and still cant get my iphone 3gs working the way I want.
Long story short it crashed and I had to restore it to 3.1.3
So I Have a 3GS
Network Not Available
Version: 3.1.2 (7D11)
Serial Number: XXX31XXXX
Model FW: 05.12.01
I get the 1015 error when downgrading so I belive that means I have something saved on the Cydia Server?
I had it working fine until I used PKG Backup and it crashed and since then I can't get my official Carrier O2 back...so I've a jailbroken iphone that won't make calls!!
I've tried lots of different ways-last one was to restore shift the 3.1.2 fw twice after 1015 error on 2nd attempt,press ok, open quickpwn 22, hold pwr/home for 15 secs, then open up blackra1n rc3 and still NO Service
Any Advise would mean I might be able to sleep again.
Thanks in Advance.

Try to use iRecovery if you get 1015 error.
Take a look iRecovery: Get Out iPhone from Recovery Mode Loop on Restart | iPhone
You need Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) which you can get from

Thanks I'll give it a go...am I wasting my time at this stage...an I jailbreak this phone again and have the phone side working?

Yes, you can restore to 3.1.2 and jailbreak it. SIM unlock won't work, but I see you don't need it, because you are using official carrier.
So try to restore your iPhone. Then you get 1015 error don't press OK. Just use iRecovery.

If you're using Windows 7, don't use libUSB. Your USB will be screwed. Try to get somewhere on Windows XP.

Yes, you can do that if you want to. Or you can just jailbreak your phone with blackra1n or redsn0w. Take a look to tutorials.
Dhamien, that was a last stage than you need insert SIM card to activate your iPhone trought iTunes.
