My sister-in-law is visiting from Germany. We went to TMobile and bought a prepaid SIM card. The SIM card will not work in her iPhone 3G. The customer service, if that is what you want to call it, when we went back to TMobile was not very nice and they said the problem is the phone is locked. I have gone through the steps to "jailbreak" the phone. ITunes is saying the SIM card is not supported. It appears that the phone keeps turning itself off at the end of the jailbreak. Can anyone explain to me what I might be doing wrong? Thank you for your thoughts and hopefully assistance.

I have a simple question. I'm on AT&T with 4.3.1. I want to upgrade and jailbreak untethered to any version of iOS 5. What version would be the easiest with the least room for complications? And what corresponding version of redsn0w should I get?

Thank you very much. I wouldn't lose any of my current cydia apps or jailbreak settings, correct? And what is the correct order to follow as in the steps to be taken? Could you link me to a good walkthrough of the steps?

If I install 5.1.1 with iTunes, to be able to jb it with redsn0w, won't it erase all of my current jb apps/settings? Sorry, I've only ever jb from a stock firmware. Never went from one jb firmware to a newer jb firmware.

Anything that was bought from Cydia ya will be able to redownload in account settings. Thats a good thing.

Thanks guys. Although that seems crazy. So do most people do what I did and wait until they feel it's absolutely necessary to upgrade their jb?
It's going to take quite a bit of time to reinstall and reset all of my settings.
I could have sworn there was a method in which you downloaded the newest firmware, had a utility hack/jb it first, then used iTunes (with the shift+restore button) to install it. Thereby never installing a clean firmware and losing your jb data.
Am I thinking of something different here?

Upgrading from 4.0 to 5.0 you will have to do it no way around it. Now once ya on 5.1.1 you can restore from a backup on 5.1.1 and ya won't lose anything.

I have an iPod Touch 2g 4.2.1 and after jailbreaking it, it is stuck on the Apple logo, no spinning wheel or anything. The screen will go completely blank and white for one second and then it loops back to the logo. It's been this way for two days now. I have tried numerous times to restart and restore the device, but with no luck. iTunes pops up an error saying the iPod can't be restored (error 3194). I followed the redsn0w directions to the 'T' and I guess I failed miserably.
I don't know what to do anymore, is there anyone that can help me out?

Occurs when trying to install an old firmware and Apple's server disallows the installation. The only solution is to have SHSH backup and modify the hosts file to point to Saurik's Cydia Server where they are backed up (or localhost if you have it yourself).

I have an iPhone 3G model A124J, iboot 596.24. It,s my first iPhone and I don't quite understand how everything works. I made an update with iTunes and now it is stuck on emergency call only.
Please tell me what I need to do to jailbreak and unlock it. I do not know in what carrier it is locked and I don't have a foreign carrier sim, so I need to unlock the phone via PC.
Also, for this phone, what software version is recomandable. As I read the 3.1.3 is still the best for the 3G.
Thank you !

so here's where I eden up. Jailbraked the phone with redsnow. Tryed to downgrade BB 5.15.04 to lower version using fuzzyband as the phone remained on bootloader 5.08. The phone restarted while downgrading and keeps restarting every aprox. 5 minutes. It has no baseband now, in the About section the BB row is blank and tinyumbrella can't read the BB also.
I'm stuck. Ideeas ?
