    Default Cant Jailbreak/Downgrade/unluck my Iphone 3gs
    Hi Guys,

    I have a problem I have not been able to fix which is the following:

    A friend gave me his iPhone 3GS which it wasnt jailbroken or anything it was a regular At&t phone it has a sim card in it from that carrier, but is no longer in use since he has another sim card. My problem is that It asked to do a restore in order to get it out of recovery mode because my friend deleted everything on the phone so I did and it was working, but then it ran out of battery and when I wanted to turn it on again it show up recovery mode again. So i did the restore and I haven been able to get it out of there.

    So can you please let me know how can I get it out so I can be able to jailbreak it and unlock it. Obviously it doesnt have any SHSH on cydia, I get error 3194 currently so I do not know what to do if you can let me know it would be helpful please, in a detail manner. I dont know which iOS, baseband does it have so please help me.

    Create a custom firmware of 4.1 from Snowbreeze 2.1, use Expert mode : unchecked activate iphone. You can let your ATNT sim to activate
    Use Ireb, Redsn0w or any tools to put iphone into pwned dfu mode.
    Run itunes and restore to custom fw of 4.1

    You can google search for custom firmware of 4.1 if you don't know how to create it.

    Once you have restored, go to settings general, about and look for the modem firmware and tell me what you have.

    You cannot restore to 5.0.1 as this is a stock firmware and you have the ipad Baseband. You will end up in recovery mode.
    Do a reboot again .

    btw , looking for a wifi is better than no wifi

    You are already jailbroken and unlocked. Are you able to search wifi after reboot.

    Yes, you can save the blob now. You have to do the same thing again if a restore is needed.

    Yes i do have an at&t sim card with me but is not activated since it was my friends and he no longer use that one. I have a sim card from Mexico which is the one i want to use. and that is why i want to unlock it is already in the phone but it just stays on searching... So i might think is not unlocked or something?

    If it says searching, it is already unlocked. Run redsnow and choose deactivate option , use your atnt sim activate it.
