Thread: previously jailbroke 3gs now locked

    Cool previously jailbroke 3gs now locked
    I bought a 3gs that was unlocked. As soon as I plugged it into iTunes it upgraded - and is now locked. I can't make any progress getting unlocked. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
    TIA

    You can try my guide here on how to downgrade and jailbreak again. Once jailbroken install ultrasn0w from cydia and you will be unlocked.

    It is possible that you have shsh on file with Cydia.
    For pc : use notepad to open up your hosts file, you need to run as admin and browse to cwindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
    Add this line to the very bottom and make sure the rest is with this sign # infront of every line so as to avoid conflict.
    and it will look something like this :

    #74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    #127.0.0.1 gs.apple.com
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    save it and reboot your pc
    Download the 4.0.1 ipsw from here :
    iClarified - iPhone - Where To Download iPhone Firmware Files From
    Put your iphone into DFU mode
    Do the shift + Restore to the 4.0.1 ipsw.
    Hopefully everything goes smoothly.
    If successful, insert your official sim card to activate
    From Safari on your Iphone, go to jailbreakme.com to jailbreak
    When done, open up Cydia and go and install Ultrasn0w to unlock.
