Thread: jailbreak & unlock possible without AT&T Sim?

  1. #1
    Default jailbreak & unlock possible without AT&T Sim?
    My 3g 3.1.2 froze while updating swirly and is now stuck in loading mode. Is it possible to jailbreak and unlock with only my Tmobile sim? Or do I need an AT&T sim to do this?

    Thanks

    Just use redsn0w jailbreak to hacktivate/jailbread your phone. I'd recommend you uncheck the multitasking and wallpaper backgrounds in redsn0w as they will slow the phone down a lot.

    It gives instructions for downloading firmware through safari. Im running 64bit windows 7 w/ firefox. Do i need to download safari to do this?

    Nope you are good to go. Just click on "iPhone 3G 4.0" right under where it says "firmware" and it will download for you.

    Default lost wifi briefly
    I made it to "downloading Jailbreak Data...." then briefly lost wifi. Does this affect jailbreak? If so what steps should i take? Shut iphone down and restart?

    Just restarted it and it works! unlocking is my next task. If this works i would like to donate $ for you help.

    Did the phone restart itself and was cydia installed? If so then you are in business and ready to unlock it.

    Edit: lol glad it worked and glad to help you out

    Yes! Im in business! Unlock is next task. If it works following your lead I'd like to donate $ for your help.

    Everything worked perfect. My only issue is my clock, calculator, and voice memos are all in the same icon labeled: Utilities. Is there a fix for this or is this what redsnow does?

    Those are the new folders that come on iOS 4. If you want to remove apps from the folders just hold the icon and drag them out like you move around normal app icons. If you want to puts apps into folders just drag an app over another one until it creates the folder and let go.
