    Angry [HELP] Work, dam you, work!
    Hi,
    Bought and Iphone 3G from Ebay (cause it was cheap). Plugged it into Itunes, and found out it was running 3.1.3.
    Looked on Youtube and found a brillaint guide on how to jailbreak my iphone. Followed it DIRRECTLY (spend basically all of yesterday trying to fix it), Itunes kept giving me errors and **** like that. Ranging from
    1600 - 12 (everything that went wrong has gone wrong for me).
    Yesterday.
    I have used every single jailbreaking peice of software i could find on the internet, with little effect. And just resulting in me being more and more frustrated!.

    Yesterday, I stupidly spent 20 of my cash on a website claiming taht they could do it remotly for me, and all i got was all of my money being taken out of my account having my card cloned. So not only have i lost nearly 5Grand, but also the will to live.
    If anyone is willing to help me to restore this Iphone then it will be greatly recived. As i am on the brink of putting it on Ebay and selling it!
    Many thanks in advance

    *EDIT*
    I have got Teamview, if someone would like to do it for me, as i have the tecnial compitance of a 3year old!

    Wow that sucks a lot, I'm sorry you got ripped on. Wish you would have found this place sooner.

    You should probably download f0recast from ih8sn0w.com and see if your device is capable of being jailbroken. Do you have a 3G or 3GS? Does your iphone model (Settings > General > About) start with MC? What is the version of your Modem firmware (same page)?

    You might be able to jailbreak it, I'm not 100% sure. Try to find out what f0recast says about your device. Someone smarter than me here can probably help you out better.

    EDIT: I see you posted the f0recast screenshot.

    If I remember correctly, you should be able to use shift-restore in iTunes with a ipsw generated from sn0wbreeze. However as you can see there is no unlock since you have the newest baseband (0.5.12.01).

    Dude u lost 5 grand? Wow.
    Ok what u need to do is see at the top of the forum it says downloads. Put ur mouse over that and amenu will pop down. On the left click firmware. Find iPhone 3g 3.1.2 firmware and download it. An save to desktop.
    Then do a shift restore to that in iTunes. If u get an 10xx error ignore it. Then go to blackweather and download blackrain. Then run it on ur phone. Well right now ur jailbroken but Not unlocked

    hahaha yea dude.....5G will buy you much more than one jailbreakable iphone.











    It will buy you about 13 jailbreakable iphone 3GS's and the iPhone 4G prototype that was lost xD

    But considering you didn't really bring up the topic after your first post, you probably contacted your credit card holder or whoever and dealt with it. If you even can recover it from something like that im not sure.


    Anyways, yea the iPhone 3G is always jailbreakable. The 3GS isn't. And yea, get the newest version of Sn0wbreeze or whatever and jailbreak 3.1.3

    There are plenty of guides out there and if you follow them correctly you will be able to jailbreak. If you can't, it's usually a problem of the user.

    Anyways, yea you should have done more research before you paid money to jailbreak.
