Thread: iphone virgin question

    Default iphone virgin question
    Hi i'm android developer who happen to pickup 3gs yesterday. I never work with iPhones before and it's all very new to me
    My 3gs is happen to be 3.1.3 with 5.12.01 baseband and new boot loader ( model MC135LL)
    I've tried to jb it with pwnagetool 3.1.5 and failed with 16xx errors ( tunes are 9.1.1 )
    So i've tried Spirit and it worked, followed by ultrasn0w. So now im jb and unlocked.
    However, i have a feeling that "proper way" of doing it is via pwnagetool.
    So my question is - how i can go from Spirit JB to pwnage JB. I'm probably will stop at 3.1.3/3.1.2 for now and not gonna upgrade to 4.0.

    Right now you are going to be stuck there due to probably having new boot rom, and spirt is a userland jailbreak so it does not pwn iboot,and iboot has to be pwned it order for the iphone to accept custom firmware..

    The only way to really find out what you have is to check the iboot version..

    359.3 old boot rom
    359.3.2 new boot rom

    I've tried to jb and unlock with pwnagetool. I've fail, i think because 1) I have new bootloader and 2) iPhone was never JB before.
    So what i find and successfully did implemented - jb using Spirit tool - Download Spirit to Jailbreak iPhone 3.1.3, iPad 3.2, iPod touch 3G | Redmond Pie
    And then unlocked it Unlock iPhone 3.1.3 3G 3GS with ultrasn0w | Redmond Pie

    But your iPhones were not previously unlocked and 3.1.3 with new bootrom was initial unlocked state right ?

    Redsnow is easy snowbreeze is quite easy as well but make sure you change running setting for spirit as you want to make sure will run fine for you regarding you system and setting redsnow and pwnage tool seem to work together better than snowbreeze and spirit works least well due to what you do on iPhones redsnow and pwnage work with few flaws snowbreeze is a bit slower spirit is alight just a few hick ups in running system

    No these iPhones were not unlocked before the 3g on 3.1.3 I unlocked 2 days ago 3gs was unlocked yesterday mc model white 3gs 32g as long as you have updated cydia ultrasnow 9.3 will unlock no probs and make sure you are not running iTunes 9.2 defo with spirit jb cause you will go in a loop and will have to force reboot ultrasnow does now unlock newer basebands

    3g was jb a while ago and 3gs was activated last Wednesday jb on thursday and unlocked on Friday

    Ultrasnow worked on both of those phones this week

    On the newbootrom 3gs if you jb with spirit don't use redsnow you will go into apple loop also you don't want to install cydia over cydia 3.1.2 is better to update if you have your 3.1.2 and 3.1.2 on file if on old bootrom go back to 3.1.2 update to 4 os and then use redsnow you can't do that with new 3 gs bootrom it will freeze

    On the newbootrom 3gs if you jb with spirit don't use redsnow you will go into apple loop also you don't want to install cydia over cydia 3.1.2 is better to update if you have your 3.1.2 and 3.1.2 on file if on old bootrom go back to 3.1.2 update to 4 os and then use redsnow you can't do that with new 3 gs bootrom it will freeze

    Thanks guys, unlocked both my 3G/3Gs on 3.1.3, any instructions on how to jailbreak/unlock 4.0 for windows???

    undisputed1 - how did you unlock 3GSs ? I'm still on Spirit JB.
    As far as 4.0 goes. I'd probably stay away from that on 3G - experience is really horrible. Everything is slow as hell.

    jailbreak using spirit and unlock with ultrasn0w 0.9.3, quick an easy!!!
