    Default Jailbreak an unactivated 3GS on 5.1.1 ? Dont have an ATT sim...
    I was on 5.1 with a tethered jailbreak/unlock and was able to update to 5.1.1 using sn0wbreeze 2.9.5 since Itunes or OTA updates would not work for me.

    I tried to use the absinthe 2.0.4 method, but it requires the phone to be activated to jailbreak. I dont have an ATT sim so I cant activate it. Is there a way around this since I use the phone with Tmobile

    Or, is there a way to get untethered jailbreak on 5.1? Is there a way for me to go back?


    Thanks for your help!

    you can use the same sn0wbreeze to create a custom 5.1.1 firmware

    select the "Activate the iPhone" option in the "General" section, then create the custom firmware and restore back to 5.1.1 like you originally did

    FYI there is no untethered jailbreak for 5.1 so it is suggested to stick with 5.1.1
