    Default URGENT,need HELP
    Hello,

    I have a new 3G iphone that i got in another country.

    I wanted to unlock it to work in my country,its on 3.00 btw.

    I tried to jailbreak with blackra1n,but iTunes said that it entered recovery mode,and cannot be used until i restore it = ill be on 3.1.3

    I tried blackra1n again to see if it would work(after pressing home and the top button).It gets close but then fails.

    So,is there ANY way of doing this ? Is there ANY unlock for 3.1.3 ?

    I dont have any SHH's,as its basically new.I JB my 2G iphone wit Blackra1n but it didnt need an unlock.

    PLESAE HELP

    Will pay the person that solves it.

    An iPhone 3g can be restores to any firmware. You don't have to worry about SHSHs at all. Only a 3gs needs to verify with apple to do a restore.

    Just download any iPhone 3g firmware up to 3.1.2 as that's the latest unlockable one. Then while holding down shift click on restore in iTunes, browse to where you saved the file an select it.

    Jmonkey :

    thanks.but I don't have any backup at all from the 3G.

    I use a 2G,and want to use this 3G.

    Can I still restore to 3.1.2 without a backup ?

    Please please help.

    Oh I understand you now.

    Where can I download a 3G 3.1.2 firmware ? And I'll still be able to keep my old songs etc afterwards yeah ?

    You can download the firmware from the downloads section of this site. Yes everything that's was working on your old phone should work on the new one.

    Let me know how it goes. As for the paypal send that to the maker of whichever jailbreak you use. Whether it's Comex, geohot or the dev team. They do the real work for all us jailbreakers.

    Will do and will do

    I'm downloading 3.1.2 right now.

    It's 25% done so far.

    So then I hold shift and click restore while my 3G is connect and choose to restore with the 3.1.2 file yeah ? I really hope this works.

    My phone hasn't been activated yet either :S and don't have the sim,while this 3.1.2 already sort that problem out for me ?

    Yup that's it shift>click>restore. No this will not activate the phone. You'll need a sim card to get it initially activated.

    does blackra1n not activate it when you "make it rain" ?

    Blackra1n will put the blackra1n app on your phone when you open that there should be an icon in there for blacksn0w. Using that will hacktivate your phone.

    Ok thanks.

    I just tried putting 3.1.2 on my 3G but got an error during it.

    I now have just ordered a sim card from the country where the phone was purchased so I should be able to activate it when I get it then jailbreak and unlock hopefully ?

    Ah I forget now sorry.

    I just feel like giving up now,have spent hours today trying to do it and still have a 3G iPhone that I cannot use :@

    hopefully I'll get that sim card soon to see if it will activate
