Thread: Waiting for activation ?

  1. #1
    Default Waiting for activation ?
    have a 2g that I was going to jailbreak and unlock using redsnow.
    did the restore (I checked and it says "version 3.1.3) and now everytime I power up the phone I get the message "waiting for activation, this could take some time" dismiss. So I tap dismiss and the box goes away, my wifi works so I turn off phone, try to open redsnow and it opens itunes instead. When I downloaded redsnow and the 3.1.2 files they came with the Zip extension and I renamed both with .ipsw extension.
    anyone help me with a fix for this please?

    Zip files are compressed files, just get a copy of Winrar, that should fix you up. You will need to rename as .zip then use winrar, and I would use Redsnow ver b5-5

    Thanks, but my trial version of winrar has expired and I don't use it enough to justify buying it. I was told that if I changed the zip to ipsw that would work? This not true? Is there anyway to get the files as winzip files?

    You must have downloaded the ISPW file in safari. Use Firefox, it's better.
