Why on earth did you upgrade to 2.21 despite all the warnings? There is no fix yet and unlikely to be. You will have to wait until 3.0 is out...

There is no fix yet and unlikely to be. You will have to wait until 3.0 is out and unlocked. Until then a piggyback SIM is your only hope.

Lots of info about your phone - which is good, but unfortunately none about your computer. I use windows so will point you in the direction of that...
Look in the downloads section here
For a MAC you could use either quickpwn or pwnage - quickpwn is nice and simple, pwnage allows you to customise your FW.

Glad you got it sorted - I gave ne of those SIMs to my daughter and O2 have said they will cut off her internet access just because she isn't using an iPhone

Does anybody know if I have an iPhone with yellowsnow, is jailbroken and is on a o2 simplicity sim. Could I upgrade the firmware to 3.0, knowing that it would stop the yellowsnow working, but because it is on a o2 sim, would it still work???
05-04-2009, 08:54 AM #1293
Yes it would - assuming, of course, that it's locked to O2 UK.

If it's a UK iPhone it will work.
Where did you get it from?
Simple way to check is uninstal/disable yellowsn0w - if it still works you're fine, if not just re-instal/re-enable.
05-04-2009, 09:34 AM #1296
I've just tried it. Uninstalled it and restarted my phone. I got the signal bar, but no signal and no network icon. Back to yellowsnow for me

You guys are awesome!!
We truly appreciate all the efforts you guys have put into having the rest of us enjoy the iPhone.
We hope that the new 3.0 brings an easier unlock for those of us who got an OOB 2.2.1 3G with BL 05.09, and cannot fully enjoy all the capabilities of what, for now, is just an expensive iPod touch.
Thank you, and keep it up!

If it is a UK phone then if you restore the phone and activate through O2 then jailbrake it should work. If your phone was activated via quickpwn it will not work with O2.
To try you will need to restore a FW with BB 2.28.00 to make sure you can go back to YellowSn0w if required but if the phone is locked to O2 it will work.
On the other hand, if you ever want to unlock you will need to keep BB 2.28 so what's the problem with using YellowSn0w?

So long as you don't upgrade your BB you can still use YellowSn0w so, to keep it simple, do NOT restore to any FW other than 2.20
What is your Model No? that will tell us if it is possibly a UK phone (the same model no is used in Ireland so not definitive but if not a UK model at least you will know).
Trying to activate on O2 will not do any harm - if it doesn;t work you can still use YellowSn0w.
So long as you make sure you don't upgrade your BB you will be OK.
