    Default unlocking problem
    Hi I have unlocked 5 phones successfully using redsn0w. I have just been asked to unlock a friends 3g and am having a nightmare. Redsnow hangs on the first restart screen. I have tried go downgrade the firmware (3.0.1) to 3 or even lower but it wont downgrade. Can anyone help me please?

    You have to install Ultrasn0w 0.9 in order to unlock the 3G and 3GS iPhones
    Ultrasn0w 0.9 Released
