    Default Iphone 3Gs Stuck In "Connect To iTunes" After Downgrading
    Hi there!

    So to make a long story short, I tried to downgrade from ios 6.1 to ios 4.1. I'm on an iphone 3Gs on t-mobile. I downgraded successfully, but now my phone is stuck on the picture of the ios cord and the itunes logo, with something at the bottom that says "Emergency Call". I tried using TU to get out of recovery, but didn't work. I figured I could either upgrade back to ios 6 and try again, or use TU's TSS server to downgrade to 4.1 with itunes, but itunes is telling me I need a sim card, and I don't have one. This may be my last, and only option left.

    That isn't recovery. You are at the activation screen. You need a SIM card from the carrier the phone is locked to.
    Or you can hactivate it by jail breaking with redsnow 0.9.6rc17.

    Do you have a link to 0.9.6rc17? I can only find out dated ones. Can't I just use a recent version of redsn0w?

    Yes, you can use a more recent version like 0.9.15b3.

    Thanks! Thought for sure I did that, but I guess I had to select the IPSW for 4.1, and it worked.
