Thread: What am i doing wrong, IPHONE LOCKED UP

    Default What am i doing wrong, IPHONE LOCKED UP
    Ok im haveing some problems here, i have an iphone 2g... It was running on 2. something when i received it..I upgraded to 3.1.2 os and was running fine well i want to activate it with T-mobile, so i said before i activate i want to Jbreak it and unlock it..So i jailbroke with blackRa1n and it ran fine, so i was asking around about an unlock and i was told to use Cydia and download the Bootneuter app. i did and in the final step it kinda cut off and then rebooted, but now i have the itunes logo with the usb cable telling me to connect it to itunes to restore it..but when i connect it to itunes it says it cant restore be cause of some kind of simcard issue..

    So my questions are..

    Do i need an active sim?

    What can i do to get it to restore?

    And how can i fix this issue?

    I cant even access any of my apps, the phone is locked up and is really starting to irratate me..

    Any help would be greatly appriciated.!!

    Thanks, BLACKDIAMOND

    Have you tried to put it in DFU mode from where you're stuck at?
    I never heard of "Bootneuter". I would have just stuck to Ultrasnow.

    ^ he's on a 2G phone, ultrasn0w will not work and I am not 100% sure that the bootneuter app will work on 3.1.2 either. Have you read that it would?
    I would use the new pwnage tool that was released to jailbreak it if you on the new OS and a PC.

    You'll have to do a search for one if you can't download a torrent file I guess.
    You can always restore back down to 3.0.1 for now to get the phone operational at least and then use redsn0w. No major changes in the OS that would affect you being it's a 2G phone.

    Battlecrushr i tried it and it worked but i took me back to square one,,thanks for the input.

    BLKCADI, im gonna try to downgrade right now..

    Blkcadi, i dowloaded 3.0.1 and i need to unzip it, can you go step to step from where i need to unzip the file so i do this right the first time..I would greatly appriciate it!! So i can get my phone back and run redsn0w..

    Just re-name the file, change it from .zip to .ipsw and you should be good to go.

    Actually you should use FIreFox as your browser, more stable and doesn't try to extract downloaded files or rename them.

    It has to be unzipped in a folder format but once its unzipped it has a bunch of different files..DMG, quicktime,FSEVENTSD file..

    you have the correct file if that's how it's named, shouldn't have to re-download it.
    hold shift click restore and point to that file.

    after it restores then run redsn0w w/ the bootloader files.
