I got my iPhone replaced at the apple store today, and came home to unlock it. Used redsn0w 8 to jailbreak and it worked fine. Went into cydia to install ultrasn0w and I got a weird error.
Cached Failure came up twice
then I got Host Unreachable
I didnt care for yellowsn0w I just wanted ultrasn0w. Get to add repo and cydia couldnt find the repo. Re-tryed this process a million times then went to purplera1n and purplesn0w with the exact same process. So i spent the last 4 hours trying to figure out how to do this.
For everyone that is having this same problem now, I hope this helps.
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE openSSH and KNOW HOW TO USE IT
this works for 3.0.1 and 3.0
1. Download Ultrasn0w DEB from attached file (sorry i only have ultrasn0w 6)
2. SSH into iPhone
3. Place deb file in var/root/Media/Cydia/AutoInstall (If Cydia/AutoInstall dont exist, create them)
4. Reboot iPhone AND respring
5. Make sure Ultrasn0w is in Cydia, manage, packages
6. Reboot iPhone again and phone should be unlocked
I hope this helps others having this problem
If anyone has newer deb files, please upload them and post the links

(Musclenerd's twitter)I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
