Thread: 3GS Old Bootrom on 4.0.2 no SHSH backup

  1. #1
    Red face 3GS Old Bootrom on 4.0.2 no SHSH backup
    Will GreenpOison be the answer to my troubles?
    I live in Paraguay and just want to unlock my phone so I can slip a TIGO sim card in and make it my phone. The jailbreak would be nice, but I am primarily concerned with unlocking my phone.

    I did the tiny umbrella thing, and cannot downgrade. Will greenPoison be the answer?

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes. Use tiny umbrella to update to 4.1 while preserving your baseband (you can find tutorials all over the Internet.) Then jailbreak with greenpoison and install the old ultrasnow which should unlock you. Definetly preserve your baseband and then jailbreak.

    Tiny umbrella does not preserve baseband on 3GS. Do not do that.

    Right now you have none. Just hope for a userland jailbreak to come out at some point.

    My bad, I was thinking iPhone 4. But apparently geohot is now going to be releasing limerain which should work on
    3GS.

    Default Jailbriken with Limera1n
    Now how can I unlock my 3GS??

    And how do I know if I am jailbroken by looking at my phone?

    What now?

    Cydia?

    Thanks.

    What have you done so far? Did you run limera1n? If so, install Cydia through the app that was added. Alternatively, you can wait until pwnagetool is released and then use that to restore to 4.1.

    Whatever you do, don't restore to stock 4.1 because that will upgrade your baseband and will make it so you can't unlock at all.

    I used limera1n to jailbreak and unlocked using snowbreeze. It was so easy. I am using my Paraguay SIM card and I could not be happier. Thanks for all the tips.

    Default Ultrasn0w not snowbreeze
    Sorry, I used ultrasn0w to unlock. My bad. Still, so easy.

    Limera1n.com download the file and follow the instructions when you run it

    Then when jailbroken hit the limerain icon and install Cydia

    Then open Cydia and install ultrasnow
