    Default Hacktivation?
    I am the proud owner of a 32 gig iPhone 3GS New bootrom.. which has been previously jailbroken, but now I'm at the emergency call screen that asks me to activate. I have tried putting numerous at&t sim cards in it, and it doesn't activate. So if any of you know of a new software that could hacktivate and jailbreak, so I can use my iPaperweight again soon that would be amazing! Thanks.

    I used spirit, and my friend accidentally installed blackra1n and it caused it to crash. So I had to restore, and it requires activation now.

    So you restored to straight up Itunes Resore IOS4?

    If yes you will have to install AT&T sim with contract to get it to activate!

    If that is what you have done you will probality have to restore again and leave AT&T sim in untill it finishs setting up phone and activates through Itunes!

    If you did a shift restore then you need to have you shsh's saved on Cydia but will still have to wait for Itunes to activate!

    More info = more help

    Well, this was a long time ago this happened. Probably like 2 months ago. I restored to 3.1.3.. and for some reason it won't accept active at&t sims. I have no clue why.

    He means restore the phone in iTunes, and then after the restore when it asks you to load from a backup, tell it to setup as a new phone.
