    Thumbs up Ultrasn0w repo not working? Manual Unlock Step by Step
    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.

    apt.yellowsn0w.com errors:
    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

    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
