Help please - iPhone on emergency calls only
I managed to follow the pwnage guide using 126.96.36.199 but when i restore (+ shift) in Itunes it runs through the whole update scenario but it puts my Iphone in the emergency calls only screen. How do I kick it out of this screen so it opens up correctly?

That just means its not activated, plug it into Itunes and activate it.

sorry for being thick but would that not just ask for apple ID and a password which I dont have. The idea for me was to jailbreak it.

If your on AT&T (or whatever carrier you bought it with) Itunes HAS to activate the phone before you can use it.
If your unlocking it for an "illegal" carrier - you should have checked the "Activate" box in pwnage.
Emergency calls only screen means its not activated.

Thanks for your help.
If i was to tick the activate box (which I have done previous) there is a problem no signal bars or connectivity to my provider.

Make sure that you restore from the CUSTOM (the file you have made with pwnage or winpwn

How do I make sure I am restoring from the right file?

Ok you first have to make your own restore file with pwnage if you don't understand that please tell me and i'll tell you more in detail.
when you finish creating your firmware file it by default puts custom infront of it use the custom one

I tried to pwn it, but I get no signal, what do u mean itunes has to activate it? how?
When I plug it in, it asks for a restore and I dont see an activation screen anywhere

I have the file made I don't know where it goes or how to get iTunes to use it.

I am a paying att customer, I dont have to check activate according to the notes, I did everything over 20 times already.
No matter what I do, I get no signal at all at the end.
I got a 3g iphone btw

make sure you downloaded the 3G firmware that would cause a problem also.
If you are on the actual iPhone plan DON'T CLICK any of the advanced tab just install cydia and installer if you want. I never had the iPhone plan btw just an AT&T customer

naw man, I tried everything, the instructions are very easy to follow, you have to be a down syndrome not to be able to follow them.
It will not give me signal no mater what I do.
Set it as a new phone after it was done, same ****, I tried different partition sizes everything you could possibly do, it does not work, period
