    hi folks,
    a friend of mine got an iphone 4s and gave me her old 3gs.
    i guess she wiped the phone completely and there's no iOS on there because when i turn it on, it says to connect to itunes and shows a usb cable.

    for now, i'm not planning on using it as a phone since i already have an unlocked 3gs on os3.1, but wanted to load either iOS4 or 5 and use it for the apps that only run in OS4 or higher. from what i read, updating the phone to the latest OS updates it to the latest baseband that can't be unlocked? (want to keep the option of being able to unlock it in the future, just in case.)

    i'm trying to figure out what is the best way for me to go beforehand instead of guessing and possibly screwing it totally. (like i commonly do )
    i tried searching around but there's so much info out there, i just dont know where to begin.

    other related info.
    from what i can tell, the phone was manufactured in 23rd week of 2009.
    the phone was never jailbroken or unlocked
    she doesn't remember what was the last iOS version she updated to. (she got the 4s the first week it came out, so it was probably the update that came out around that time.)
    i have the original att sim card.
    i'm on a mac.

    any help appreciated

    How do I get information about a 3G before doing anything on it? Do I need to be in DFU to read it?

    open itune, connect usb cable and see if it reboots the device, if so then settings>General, all info of device is there. You will then have to create cfw (custom firm ware) to preserve your base band( check the latest ultrasnow see which BB it supports) if just so happens that you BB is "unlockable" then you M-u-s-t use either redsnow or snowbreeze if you on PC for Mac use pwnagetool to create cwf to jailbreak the open cydia and search for ultrasnow to unlock. this website here have steps by steps instructions check it out!!

    thanks neil for the reply.

    i did get everything going over the last weekend. phone is now unlocked/jb on 5.0.1.

    when i first got it, the phone was stuck in restore mode so didn't know what os and bb it had. thankfully TU was able to get it out of restore mode. phone was on 3.1.3 with bb 5.11.07.

    used pwnage tool to create a cfw for 4.1, then later 5.0.1.

    the phone runs pretty speedy on os5. after reading some others comments about the 3gs and os5, i thought it would lag more for some reason.

    so far so good except for the phone shutting off by itself a couple of times. not sure why it did that and not sure if it was software or hardware based. we'll see i guess.

    I should have mentioned that I received a 3G iPhone in restore mode so it isn't booted. My current iTunes version is 10.5 and my sync is disabled. The message I receive from iTunes is that it would like to read my phone before restoring it. I don't know what was done to this phone before I got it and I am hesitant to just restore it blindly. Is there another way to find out what is on the phone or is this not a requirement here?

    Hi, i have a 3G on IOS 4.1 and BB 5.12.01 so it's unlockable with Ultrasn0w. I had a problem while updating mobilesubstrate and the phone entered on a continous boot loop, i don't mind to restore it but i have a doubt. If i get a friend with a MAC (i have PC) to make me a custom 4.1 IPSW i can JB with redsn0w and then unlock with ultrasn0w, isn't it?. So far that's what i have read in the forums, my doubt is if i have to use redsn0w 0.9.6 b2 for 4.1 or i can use te latest version?

    You could use Sn0wbreeze on your Windows machine to create a custom fw. For 4.1, I would suggest using version 2.0.2 of Sn0wbreeze. It works better with an iPhone 3G than v2.1. With use of custom fw you don't need to jailbreak again with redsn0w. Custom fw will restore and jb simultaneously. Just don't forget to set your device into pwned DFU mode with Sn0wbreeze before doing the restore to custom 4.1.

    Do you have anything else installed? Also check if you have orientation locked. Open your native multitask, swipe to the right, notice the music icon. On the far left is a circular arrow that controls the orientation lock. Tap on that if there is a lock in the middle of the icon and it should unlock it.

    I've haven't received a reply to my posts so I'm reforming the question. I received a 3G in restore mode; if the history of a 3G is unknown, what is the worst possible result if restored with iTunes 10.5.x?

    Depends if you want to unlock or not. If you dont need to unlock it will restore to 4.2.1 and you will be fine. If you do want to unlock try restoring to 3.1.3 first. If you get a 1015 error use tiny umbrella to kick out of recovery then check what your baseband is when it boots up.

    Hi, i.annie and Neil001, thanks to your replies, i could restore my 3g on 4.1 out of the boot loop but now i can't unlock because of a crash every time i try to install ultrasn0w. while installing ultrasnow it also downloads mobile substrate, when the progress bar is 1/3 of installing mobile substrate it crashes and resets my iphone. i tried to install mobile substrate first separately and it does the same... and as long as i know (and its not much) i can't install ultrasnow without installing mobile substrate... Any ideas?

    Thanks for the directions. I've never used tinyumbrella, will the program see the 3G iPhone after the failed restore with 3.1.3? Do the default selections in tinyumbrella remain unchanged? Do I need to be in DFU mode?

    Yes, it will come up as a question mark in tiny umbrella on the left side. Just click on there then click exit recovery on the right side.
