    Fix recovery wont work on a iPhone 3G. Are you sure you restored to 3.1.3 and not 4.2.1?

    Thanks for holding my hand during this. I really don't know what is on there. The last thing I did from iTunes was shift-restore from 3.1.3 image which got me a 1015 error. As I mentioned earlier, my iTunes is not set to update or sync automatically. By the way, I did a hard reset and now I am in emergency mode (locked). TinyUmbrella told me I had 3.1.3 firmware while in DFU but when I connected it after it rebooted, all I saw were my two saved SHSHs (3G 4.1 and 3G 4.2.1) and the warning dialog.

    It sounds like you are at the activation screen then (you can make an emergency call correct?). If that is the case your next step is either activating with an official carrier sim or using redsnow 0.9.4 to activate it. If you use redsnow you will need a copy of the 3.1.2 firmware for your device to point redsnow to.

    You are awesome! Yes, at the activation screen I opened redsn0w 9.4 and followed the directions. It appears to be running 05.13.04 modem firmware and 3.1.3 software. One last question about this device; if I am safely unlocked, what do I need to do to stay this way?

    For the record, I have a retired 1G/2G model that my nephew bricked by ignoring the "low battery" warning until the device shut off. After that, the device would alternately show fully charged and empty within seconds and when connected to iTunes, I would get a device unrecognized 800000001 error. Everything I've read indicates that this is probably a software problem. The battery had always been a champ before this incident. Any advice on an approach to this one?

    Install ultrasnow to actually do the unlock (if you havent already). As long as you dont update to 4.1 or 4.2.1 then you can always unlock it again the same way.

    For the older iPhone not too sure. Have you tried putting it in DFU and restoring it?

    Many unsuccessful attempts to get the older phone in DFU so far. The phone is no longer recognized in iTunes and I continue to get a low battery warning. Which version of Ultrasnow?

    Latest version of ultrasnow.

    Sounds like a new battery is needed for the iPhone 2G. Not an easy task to do though.

    Noted, but i believe the battery is still fine. The metering seems to be the victim here. Is it possible that by running the device into shutdown, the mechanisms controlling this function were borked? I say this because I have had the phone on standby, periodically checking it for 9 hours now and the same red line is on the battery indicator. The battey seems to have charged but the circuit or software reporting the charge level is way out of wack. The trouble is that when I attempt to put this 2G iPhone in DFU or restore mode, the firmware probably prevents it due to the battery reading. Does this make any sense?

    Back to the 3G, am I running the correct basebands? Wha ti smeant by revirginizing the phone? The phone appears to be ready for any SIM card. It connects to WiFi but I am experiencing sound problems. Will ultrasn0w help?

    I have a 3GS on iOS 4 with BB 04.26.08. I want to update to iOS 5.0.1 without losing the unlock functionality. How can I do this exactly?

    I have posted here 3GS 04.26.08 from iOS 4 to iOS 5.0.1

    Haven't got an answer yet. I see the first post on this thread:

    "UPGRADING TO iOS 5 WHILE PRESERVING UNLOCKABLE BASEBAND (1.59.00 and 5.13.04 OR BELOW)

    DOWNLOADS:
    1) Sn0wbreeze from iH8Sn0w
    2) Stock 5.0 ipsw
    3) Latest iTunes...."

    Is this the correct way to go?

    Thanks

    ultrasnow is an unlock, it wont help sound problems.

    You must create cfw by using the latest redsnow (PC) or pwnagetool (mac) to j/b and preserve the bb after j/b open cydia, search ultrasnow, install to unlock

    I think I may have packed too many topics in too few posts. Let me review:
    1. The 3G iPhone appears to have a hardware related sound problem because I can hear sound with headphones, no further replies required.
    2. I need a clarification on the current state of my 3G, redsn0w 9.4 has jailbroken it and I have a functioning iOS 3.1.3, what will happen if I try to activate an alternate carrier account like SimpleMobile? What is meant by "virginizing your iPhone", why do we do it and how is it done?
    3. Original iPhone 1g/2G with battery meter issue is being addressed in this way, I am attempting to drain it again and recharge, I will post my result.

    virginizing your iphone is not something you need to do. That is a very old term not used anymore.

    Hello all,

    I have just jailbroken and unlocked my iPhone 3G which had a bb 5.15.04 and iOS 4.2.1 In order to jailbreak/unlock it, I got it to the iPad baseband of 6.15.00. I used redsn0w and ultrasn0w to jailbreak/unlock. Now I am having problems both with cydia and syncing with iTunes. Whenever I try to add a new source in cydia it gives me a verification error message saying that it cannot connect to the server. Whenever I try to sync the phone with iTunes it begins the sync and both the phone and my computer say that the process of syncing is happening, but it stops very quickly after doing nothing. Should I restore the phone and jailbreak/unlock it again? Or will that screw up my phone since I changed the baseband?

    Thanks!

    You can try a fresh restore but you will have to use a custom firmware since you now have the ipad baseband installed. Did you do the updates cydia gave you when you first ran it?

    Yes, I did do the updates for cydia. And how do I create/use a custom firmware? I'm new to this game. I only needed to jailbreak the phone because I dropped my real phone in water and got this one for free.
