    Have you tried redsnow? Why do you need to hactivate it?

    I tried Redsn0w, but it says that Exploit failed.

    Why;

    I was jailbroken, but I updated so I went to jailbreak with the new evasi0n, but I need to activate to go ahead...(hope I make sense, so lost lol)

    You have to point redsnow to a 6.0 firmware first before jailbreaking for it to work.

    Do you not have a SIM card to activate it?

    Yeah I put 6.0 ---> then DFU mode ---> Exploit failed

    -i put my sim in, doesn't recognise it, i think its because its not the official one, had this problem on other ioS's, but hactivating fixes it, then unlock with ultrasnow

    for now i need to hacktivate it

    So you have the 1.59 baseband them I assume? Who is the phone originally locked to?

    I think so, its locked to optus i think, but I give up with redsn0w, I'm so frustrated at the moment, I tried it about 20 times till now... it starts jailbreaking and then says Exploit failed

    might just take it to a repair shop

    When trying with snowbreeze to hactivate it did you choose expert mode and then click the box to hactivate? There is a manual way to get past activation by replacing the lockdown folder, since you did use a custom firmware you are technically jailbroken.

    This might get you past the activation screen: How to Fix the “Different SIM Detected” Issue on the iPhone

    didn't work.. but no worries man

    I think I'll just wait for redsn0w/other software to support ios 6.1...

    I'll use my other phone for now.


    Thanks for your help.. I gladly appreciate it.
