    ok so here's the problem....i was jailbreaking my phone and accidently used the original restore file intead of the custom_restore. by the time I realized and unplugged it, the damage was done. the baseband has been updated and the phone does not work, leaving me with the iPhone Touch.

    Since a software unlock is not available, i was going thru one of these sites advertising even here on modmyi about unlocking all version including 2.2 guaranteed with all sims.

    Has anyone tried these, do they work?

    Moderators: your input would help since they're advertising here. Something about their credibility??

    Thanks in advance. Help needed please...fast.... :-(

    Thanks!

    YES IT WILL DELETE EVERYTHING!

Then when I finally did find it the application was for a mac app. and not a window app. I have both a mac and a pc. When i tried to unlock it with the mac everything work except my sim it remains locked if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

    Help Please,
    I have a 16g 3g phone
    I used the custom IPSW to upgrade to 2.2 through itunes and am using a turbo sim to unlock to t-moble. With 2.1 everything worked fine. Now when I try to boot up the phone it searches then I get 1 bar without a carrier logo, next it all loads I can make 1 phone call then I get no service and I have to start the process all over again. Any ideas where Im going wrong?

    just sync with iTunes before and after you jailbreak. All Music ,Appstore Apps, and contacts will sync back on your phone

    Here's a link, if this applies to your carrier situation:

    MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    - 3G
    - Jailbroken
    - Cydia only
    - No custom bootlogos (still Apple logo)
    - Standard 500MB root partition
    - No partition wipe-out
    - No Baseband update (still 01.45.00)
    - Unactivated (for official carriers only)

    Okay, so my first 3G got screwed during sync by iTunes, which gave me the last nudge I needed to JB. My replacement 3G got screwed too during app update (far too many...)
    Used the opportunity, and 3rd iPhone, to upgrade to 2.2... It went even faster and smoother than 2.1.
    I used quickpwn on XP.
    No bugs, no sync issue.

    Default Dont trust any network v3 does not work it is a scam!!!!!!!

    Did anybody tried this. they are claiming that there sim will work on 2.2
    I sympathise for all the victims of Any-network as I am one. They are a bunch of scammers avoid them like plague unless you wish to loose your money. After 14 days the v3 arrived but it did not work I tried all the various manoeuvres but nothing worked. Tried to contact support on several occasions but did not get through only got voice mails. Sent several email did not get a single reply. They are cheats and scammers. I tried to make a claim with paypal and had the standard reply that they are unable to make claims for “quality of the goods”. They only act if the goods are not delivered. Dont pay using paypal you are better protected if you have paid using credit card. Call the credit card company and reverse the charges. If you are in UK under the distance selling act you are entitled to a full refund if the product is defective. We all need to file complaint with the trading standards office and teach these scammers a lesson. They have closed the blog and now taken out the contact telephone number from their website. Please spread the word around and post any other websites or forum details where we can put our comments. I have ordered a rebel sim and I will keep you posted on this.

    We are uploading mirrors now, and will get you links ASAP. I'll have a full guide on upgrading from 2.1 to 2.2 here in the next hour.

    edit: 3G Jailbreak Guide is here
    1st gen Jailbreak Guide is here

    A few cautions:

    DO NOT USE QUICKPWN if you want to have a potential software unlock on your 3G iPhone anytime soon. QuickPwn will update your baseband to the new one included in the 2.2 update. This == bad. Use PwnageTool to create a custom 2.2 firmware. OS X guide will be up soon.

    ONLY UPDATE TO 2.2 WITH PWNAGE TOOL AND A CUSTOM IPSW if you want a 3G unlock. If you update with the official .ipsw or the regular "update your firmware" that pops up in iTunes, or you use QuickPwn - your baseband just got updated, which means NO software unlock anytime soon.

    DO NOT USE QUICKPWN and ONLY UPDATE TO 2.2 WITH PWNAGE TOOL AND A CUSTOM IPSW if you want to be able to unlock your 3G soon. Just saying it again so you can't say we didn't tell you.

    Guide soon...

    I may need your help however. I have the 2nd gen IPHONE, I have updated the software through ITUNES. I have ATT service and ITUNES 8.0. I think that I have the 2.2 software, can I still jailbreak the phone?
    Thanks the New guy!
