Thread: Iphone 3gs 6.15 iPad baseband, 4.1(8b117) firmware problem

    Default Iphone 3gs 6.15 iPad baseband, 4.1(8b117) firmware problem
    Alright guys, longtime (and I mean long lol) lurker, first time poster. My iPhone 3gs is operating on the iPad baseband of 6.15 with the 4.1 (8B117) firmware. I jailbroke the firmware using limera1n and unlocked it using the latest version of ultrasn0w.

    The story:

    I'm planning on selling my iPhone and needed to clear my personal info. from it. I really didn't feel like (too lazy) going through the process of restoring with a custom ipsw, jailbreaking and unlocking all over again so I decided to clear most of everything on it manually. After that, I went to general>reset and clicked "reset all contents and settings." I assumed if anything went wrong i could just go through the original process.

    The problem:

    Well, it seems my iphone is either constantly stuck in DFU/Recovery mode (the one with the iTunes logo and the usb cable pointing towards it.) I've tried a variety of solutions. The first was to shift + click restore in iTunes and try to restore using a version of the 4.1 firmware I downloaded off of felixbruns. No Luck. 2nd solution, I tried downloaded redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 and went through the steps, and only clicked "install cydia." The process finishes on my computer and then on my iphone, the iphone freezes on "Activating." My assumption is that I need an ATT sim to bypass this, which I do not have (I have TMobile.) I've tried other workaround options using recboot, tinyumbrella and still no luck!

    What should I do or what am I doing wrong? Right now it's not so much the fact that I can't sell my iphone but the fact that the iPhone is beating me! Which I do not like being defeated by a piece of technology, I must figure this option out but cannot for the life of me! Any help on this would be greatly appreciated!

    Note: Whenever I turn off/on the iphone, it goes to that DFU/Recovery mode screen.

    I have the same problem as you, did the same thing by reset itself. outcome with "plug in itunes" logo on my phone, Tried so many way to solve, such as redsn0w to restore, or even use itunes to update, all failed. Redsnow just stuck on "Installing Activation Bundles" for 2 minutes and then return to "White apple" logo, then again "plug in itunes" logo.

    Anyone can help us? Thanks,
    PS: baseband was already uploaded in 6.15 before reset my phone.

    Iphone 3g stuck at "installing activation bundles" - solved

    Just solve the problem now - use "redsn0w 0.96b5" -

    step:
    1.) browse your IPSW file. wait a sec and click next
    2.) after it suning itself, come out with a window..
    3.) it already clicked "install cydia" "enable battery percentage".. UNCLICK ALL, need nothing...
    4.) then click next....and you should able to pass "install activation bundles" this time....

    It is my way solved this problem, hope can help you too..

    Hey man thanks for the reply and congrats on your fix but you're method didn't work for me. I used redsn0w .9.6b5 and the 8B117 ipsw file from felixbruns.de and my iphone still freezes on the activating screen. I really think the issue is with the ipsw file since using a baseband of 6.15, you're only supposed to be able to restore with custom firmware files. However, I have never made a custom firmware file nor am I able to since my phone keeps booting into DFU mode. I think if I had the custom firmware file then my problem would be solved.

    Again,t hanks for the help and congrats on your unlock!

    Alright man so far your method has worked perfectly! Except for 1 issue: The iphone is stuck at the Apple boot logo this time and freezes.

    I've already loaded that custom 4.2.1 firmware you loaded and done all of that, and went and installed Cydia through redsn0w but after doing so, the iPhone is stuck at that APple logo. What should I do?

    popypopy,

    I have been jailbreaking for a long time but was holding off on upgrading form 4.0.1 for a long time until today and ran into this problem. To say the least, I was freaking out. Thank you very much for your help. Phone is finally restored and I hope rejailbreaking will go as smoothly.

    I registered an account just to say Thanks!!!
