    The "OPTION" would be the "alt-option" key on your keyboard. click restore while holding the key.

    Isn't it true that most people jailbroke with Greenpois0n instead of this? Are there that many people who waited specifically for this, especially with iOS 4.3 being released any day now? Is this specifically geared towards people on T-Mobile (in the U.S.) who need a working unlock to be able to do anything on an iPhone at all?

    Thanks...

    My 3G is the same way, no ATT network. All calls fail. Damn. I need this phone to work. Does anybody on the Dev or otherwise have any advice?

    Thanks!

    i forgot to check update baseband (no need for unlock) and it put me at an odd 03.10.01 firmware


    -anybody else having iTunes fully syncing issues. i keep getting a message of "The iPhone cannot be synced. The required file cannot be found." so far it has everything but my photos synced, but wont go any further.

    There probably is no unlock. It would take all of 15 minutes to shoot a quick video and post it on YouTube showing the baseband version and dialing customer service on T-Mobile, like Mr. Hotz did back in the day. This would reveal absolutely nothing about the exploit to Apple.

    I mean yeah, I get that the Dev Team does this for free and they did accomplish some amazing things in the past - but they should at least own up to their limitations so people can decide what to do with their locked iPhone 4s. (Like sell it and buy an Evo on Boost, lol)

    Seems to me you have wifisync installed. It interferes with the JB process. You need to uninstall it first from both your Mac and idevice(s) before starting the JB.

    You can reinstall wifisync after the JB.

    How did it get to that stage of not booting? It must at least ask you to connect to iTunes.

    actually I found how to uninstall the wifisync on my mac. I didn't know I had to remove it prior to the jb. It boots but it doesn't go to the home screen and just hangs at about 98% at the end as described above. I'm in the process of redoing it again now. hopefully that was it.

    EDIT: that was it!!! it's now past that restore bar and the apple has appeared again and I think it's restoring now. waiting for it to finish THANKS!!!!

    I have iPhone
    4 4.0 1.59.0
    firmware that I unlocked.. Does that mean I can upgrade to 4.2.1 without losing my unlock ? And preserving the same baseband ?
