Thread: New iPhone 3GS not unlockable?!
12-07-2011, 09:21 AM #1New iPhone 3GS not unlockable?!
I was working on my brother's 3GS last night and the imei, Bluetooth, and wifi dissappered or disabled. The phone would restart every few minutes
The iPhone was on 5.0 when I opened the box and got it out. I downgraded to 4.1 with ireb and a custom 4.1 firmware. Then I went to redsn0w to upgrade to iPad baseband. Once that was done, that's when everything went wrong. Anyone have this happen? Never had his problem before. Any help or comments are welcomed.

The phone is probably just a paper weight now. You have corrupted the baseband that's why imei,bt, and wifi are greyed out. If it'll boot apple won't replace it because of the baseband mismatch. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but the phone is ******. There's no going back and fixing it now.

Yeah I just wish I knew about this before. Unlocking is getting trickier.

Yes it is. But in the future you can download Tiny umbrella and save your SHSH blobs on it for your phone and at any point you can revert to the saved firmware/baseband of the blobs you have saved. It's very handy in case something happened to your phone.
