    Default I think im screwed can anyone help
    I was trying to upgrade from 3.1.3 to 4.1 and I made a custom firmware using Sn0wbreeze 2.0. Then I started the shift restore on iTunes and I got some unknown error. Now my phone is stuck in the connect to iTunes screen. I can't get the phone in DFU mode to put 3.1.3 back on. Now what? I'm on T-mobile, thank you!

    Use kick out of recovery from the feature of tiny umbrella, then you will be back to Home Screen.

    Try this...
    1 dont make a custom ipsw.
    2 download tinyumbrella - press kick out of recovery hope that option is there for you.
    3. download latest itunes version. 10.1
    4. download iphone software 4.1 from firefox
    5. restore and try that way use limera1n


    IF YOUR USING 3G then Just download ipsw for 4.1 run tinyumbrella and kick out of recovery hopefull its there. and try that way..

    Connect to itunes to activate or the recovery screen?

    If recovery, plug in iphone, launch firmware umbrella, and try kicking it out of recovery to see what firmware you're on now.

    You could also try restoring again using the same custom firmware. Remember the error code this time though.

    If activate, you need to hacktivate. Not sure the best way as I have AT&T.

    Man I love you guys. Used TinyUmbrella 4.1.6 kicked it out. Back to normal use. Still shows 3.1.3 as firmware. I have 4.1 and sn0wbreeze, should I try and make custom again? If so what should I click under expert mode for 3g?

    If not what should I try now?

    Thanks and thanks coming

    Do you need an unlock? If not then do it the easy way let itunes upgrade you normally to 4.1 then use limera1n to JB.

    I'm stating this from the pov of a 3GS owner as not sure of the 3G's baseband gets updated to a currently unlockable version with 4.1 but I suspect liek on my 3GS it does but I dont need an unlock for now so relying on the dev team updating ultrasnow before I next go on holiday

    I have firefox so im good there, I just watched a youtube video and it said to update the phone to 4.1 using itunes first. I cant do that because I rely on a unlock for tmobile and that will update my baseband correct?

    Correct. Redsn0w jailbreaks after you upgrade using iTunes. You want to use pwnagetool, since it jailbreaks the firmware and removes the baseband update before putting it on your phone. I don't know exactly the steps for the 3G but I did find this tutorial:

    Jailbreak iPhone 3G iOS 4.1 with PwnageTool [Guide] | Redmond Pie

    You're screwed. Why did you update to 4.1 stock? You were told not to by other posters. You even said it your self......
    If I helped please head on over and smash the Thanks button.

    Oh right. My bad.

    In that case just install Ultrasn0w from Cydia and you'll be unlocked again. :-)

    I can tell you how to solve this problem :
    Make another custom firmware, this time do not activate it in Snowbreeze. Use Expert Mode : Under General uncheck the activate my iphone. When you have restored, you will arrive at Emergency Screen, use your valid sim to trigger it, and all your problems will go away .

    Yes, someone said the same in the last thread I made, I have access to an active ATT SIM card just making sure this will not screw up the SIM before I use it to activate the phone. After I do this all I have to do is insert my tmobile sim and it will work?

    Yes, do that before you restore again to custom firmware, put your iphone into recovery mode and do the shift + restore to avoid errors.
