Thread: HELP - Jailbreaking with SnOwbreeze Probelm

    Default HELP - Jailbreaking with SnOwbreeze Probelm
    Hi all,

    New to this forum,tried to jail break my iphone 4 running 4.3.3 using SnOwbreeze,is anyone aware if this actually works?My phone wont work on any Irish carrier so I needed to jailbreak it to unlock or so Ive come to believe,I followed all details to get a custom IPSW that SnOwbreeze made,I then put my phone into DFU mode as to restore it using the new firmware but I have got 3 different errors messages as the it is been verified error 21,1600 & 1602.

    Now when I try to restore the phone normally with 4.3.3 it wont let me use it until I put in a sim that the phone accepts.

    Any help would be great,thanks

    You can jailbreak it but you cannot unlock it. Only way to unlock right now is with a gevey sim or getting the carrier the iPhone is locked to to unlock it (some will, some wont).

    Thanks for the reply.

    Is it not possible to unlock it after I have jailbroken it?Ive managed to jailbreak it by overcoming the error messages using a program I downloaded called iREB.

    Think I spoke too soon,it is still not letting me into the phone.

    Nope, even if you jailbreak it there is no unlock that will work with that baseband that you have.

    Just had a look at the Gevey sims & seen how to use them,how will it work if my phone wont go any furtehr than emergency calls & not onto settings or will it bypass that soon as I put the gevey sim in?

    You need to get a official carrier sim to activate the phone first. It doesn't have to be active, just from the carrier the phone is locked to.

    I got past the emergency screen using a program called iFun box & can now download apps etc. surely I can unlock it from here?It is coming up no serive in the corner,is it possible to unlock it using Cydia?

    Nope. As I said there is no unlock. Only a gevey sim will unlock it.

    Tried 2 of them & neither worked with my meteor sim,is there some way of calculating the IMEI or something to that effect for a permanet unlock,a mate was trying to explain abit about it to me,does such a thing exist or did it?

    There was a imei unlock last month. It only lasted a week before apple shut it down though.

    What carrier is this iPhone locked too?

    Its locked to the 3 network,I bought the iphone from a friend before he moved to Oz & he said he never got round to registering it,when I went to register it I never got sent a confirmation code & it got locked within 24hr's so I dont really know what that says about where the phone came from other than it doesnt look to legit.I used it for about a month before I tried to register it with no probelms.

    Just pick up a pay as you go 3 sim. That will activate it for you. then you can get a gevey sim to unlock it.

    If you used snowbreeze and chose to activate it with that it wont work with the carrier it is supposed to be locked to. You would need to restore it and activate it normally with the 3 sim.

    That is also why your youtube isnt working.
