Hi,I guess this has been asked a million times already, but having had my SHSH's stored on Cydia, i downgraded to 3.1.2 from 3.1.3.
All great, but no network signal, my iPhone didnt seem to activate?
I've read that using Quickpwn 2.2 to get it out of recovery will indeed activiate it, can anyone confirm this please? I'm not experienced at tinkering and am concerned it may render my phone a brick?
One other point, i had it unlocked via o2 and Apple, usually after a restore when the phone activates, it goes thru a short period of talking to Apple, then it says 'congrats your phone is unlocked'
If i use Quickpwn or something to boot my phone up and activate, will i lose the official un-lock?
Thanks kindly in advance

Actually, the problem is not that your phone wasn't activated, it's that it indeed was. You need to let iTunes activate your phone in order to get service, that's why you need to use quickpwn 2.2 to boot the phone because that tool boots without hactivating it. I know blackra1n hactivates and I'm pretty sure redsn0w also does, that's why you use quickpwn.
You can't lose official unlocks.

Thanks kindly for the replies, I guess all that remains is for me to try this method out again with Quickpwn 2.2. Have you tried this out yourself may i ask?

I think so long as Im able to restore back to 3.1.3 safely again with unlock intact I'll give it a shot

I will, if I can get network and keep the unlock on 3.1.2 I'll be sooooo happy
YES IM FREE!!!
thanks guys, quickpwn2.2 got me back online, and you were right, my unlock is as was, I have 3.1.2 and Beautiful Cydia back where it should be. I'm so pleased, if anyone wants to ask for help I'm happy to tell u my setup and help you, seriously, this is amazing, it works!
