    Default Help 3gs stuck on emergency calls only after trying to downgrade!!
    Hey guys,

    I unlocked and jailbroke successfully my friends 3gs with software 3.1.2 and 5.11.07 baseband... The phone work fine then the idiot went home and updated his software to 3.1.3 and the baseband upgrade to 5.12.01... So the phone was working fine but just wasnt unlocked anymore but silly me tried to downgrade it back to 3.1.2 now the phone is stuck on the emergency calls only screen.... I know i will not be able to unlock the phone at this present time but i just want to know how to get it back to working just like a ipod for now....

    PS THANKS IN ADVANCE...

    What you need to do is to activate it, if you have the official sim card, put it in, it will activate, if not use Blackra1n, Blackra1n will activate and jailbreak for but as you know, your friend now has an expensive Ipod Touch..lol

    So your friend is stuck both ways :

    Eventhough you are at 3.1.2 at emergency call and Blackr1n doesn't work.

    Eventhough if you restored to 3.1.3, it has to be activated in order to use Spirit Jailbreak.

    Hope the experts here like Dhamien or J3st3r3 may help out.. oh what a mess lol

    Would he need the original sim card to activate or any AT&T card?

    Tell me how did you restore back to 3.1.2 with getting in a recovery loop. Maybe your Emergency screen is a recovery loop.
    If that is the case, use Quickpwn22 to get out of recovry loop ( remember just to get out of the loop (not for jailbreaking )
    Only then use Blackra1n.. try that

    I used Itunes and i used shift+restore to restore back to 3.1.2... but the phone gone stuck in recovery mode... so i restore it back to 3.1.3 which got it stuck on emergency calls only... Im going to try using Quickpwn22 and let u know wats happening...

    3.1.3 software is on it now but it stuck in on emergency calls only... So the only way to get it back to work as a ipod is to have the original ATT sim? which i dont have is there any other way?
