    Default Erase all Content and Settings and Stuck, how to fix the issue and rejailbreak/unlock
    Hey there
    My brother wanted to give me his 3gs and he erased all content and settings, and now the iphone is stuck on: Connect to Itunes.

    How can I recover the device and stay on a version that can be jailbroken and unlocked?

    Thank u

    Make a custom 4.1 firmware with pwnage tool or snowbreeze and restore to that in itunes.

    OK im not so good at these things. I downloaded pwnage tool, do I have now to download the 4.1 firmware for 3gs?

    And then follow this guide:

    ?

    OK I just found out that pwnage is for MAC and I have windows, so im downloading snowbreeze.

    Make sure you put your iphone into pwned dfu before restoring to custom firmware created by Snowbreeze. Redsn0w can put your iphone into pwned dfu.

    OK Guys Im kind of lost.
    I have on my PC the following:
    -redsnow 0.9.6b in order to put the phone into pwned dfu mode.
    -snowbreeze 2.1
    -firmware 4.1 from this website: iPod, iPhone and iPad Firmware Download

    Now as I understood from some reading, I have downloaded the official 4.1 firmware and not the custom firmware which I can find here:
    removed

    What have I done wrong? Should I download the 4.1 custom firmware from the link above now?

    OK now I have the "Connect to itunes to push notifications" msg everytime I open facebook or whatsapp... and Im not getting push notifications.

    The restore procedure is it an option to solve the problem? Restore then rejailbreak/unlock?

    If the cFW you created was an activated version, you'll want to install SAM from Cydia.

    SAM gave me this, so I guess it aint activated.

    It's Hactivated. You need to use Sam to get wildcard activated so that your push notifications will work.
