Thread: after redsn0w no hacktivation?

  1. #1
    Default after redsn0w no hacktivation?
    I got a 2G iPhone from a friend. I put it into recovery mode and updated to 3.0.1.

    I ran redsn0w using the ipsw for 3.0 and clicked install cydia and unlock. This process ran and it finished succesfully however my iPhone still asks for me to plug into itunes and activate.

    There is a cingular sim card inserted into it and that is the only one I have.

    2g requires 2 boot loaders also, did you choose them?

    You can try to just run redsn0w again, no worries. If that doesn't work, restore and re-jailbreak.
    Make sure you set up as a "NEW PHONE" and do not sync from a back up in iTunes.

    Have you tried just to rejailbreak?!

  9. #7
    I just finished my second time ( rejailbreak ) using redsn0w.

    Let me try a restore and try it again.

    3rd time...not a charm.

    Any other methods? Redsn0w didn't work 3 times in a row.

    Huh, well I would restore in iTunes to a fresh copy of 3.0, quit iTunes and then run redsn0w again. Keep trying it will work.

    Followed your instructions for a fourth time. Nothing, still shows success but asks for activation.

    I downloaded new bootloaders and another copy of 2G ipsw but it still asks for activation.

    I have never run into this, odd. Will the phone work?

    Phone asks to be plugged into itunes, shows emergency call slider in multiple languages. Once plugged in iTunes asks to activate.

    Should I try it without the sim?

    OK, put the phone in DFU mode, restore it again and then run the J/B.
    It has to work, something isn't right. The 2G phone is the easiest of all to J/B. Something is corrupted for some reason. If it's coming out of the J/B with the emerg. it's a problem as you know. DFU.

    Once I put it into DFU should I shift click restore or just click restore? and should I restore to an unpatched 3.0 firmware ( one that I have not ran through redsn0w)?

    Usually I have been restoring via recovery mode.


    Here are the files I am using. I point redsn0w.exe to these files:
    iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    BL-39.bin
    BL-46.bin

    Always “Restore” never “update” an update will mean you lose all your space where your jailbreak apps were installed. The files will be present but no longer available.

    this phone never was activated or jailbroken be4. I will put it into DFU and shift click restore and point it to the 3.0 ipsw file. Then run redsn0w again.

    DFU mode
    INSTRUCTIONS
    Step 1. Turn off iPhone
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that it detects iPhone in restore/recovery mode.

    Alternative Method:
    Step 1. Connect iPhone to USB then listen to the sound when it connects and disconnects.
    Step 2. Hold the home and power buttons until hear the disconnect sound then release power button.
    Step 3. Wait until you hear another sound then release home button.
