Thread: Ran redsn0w, now freezing at "slide to unlock"

    Unhappy Ran redsn0w, now freezing at "slide to unlock"
    Hi all,

    I am trying to help a friend JailBreak and Unlock his iPhone 2G before he heads back to India on Saturday.

    His cousin also tried to do the same so I am not too sure what he did. I know that when the phone was handed to me it was frozen at "slide to unlock" as it is now.

    I plugged it into the latest version of itunes and checked the os version. 3.1.3 was installed on it. I then ran redsn0w with iPhone1,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore.ipsw and followed the prompts. Everything looked like it ran fine but it is still frozen at "slide to unlock".

    (here are the instructions I was following: Jailbreak, Activate and Unlock Original iPhone 2G 3.1.3 Firmware Using redsn0w [Windows/Mac] | iLikeMyiPhone)

    I also tried using itunes to downgrade to iPhone1,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw using shift+update and then run redsn0w. That just made it freeze at the apple logo screen.

    Now it is at 3.1.2 after running redsn0w and "slide to unlock" is still frozen.

    I tried all this with and without the tmobile sim installed. I believe the touch screen is fine because we can still power down using it.

    Any thoughts or advice?

    Thanks in advance,
    blazer

    Why are you getting guides from other websites when you can get it here ;
    How to Jailbreak/Unlock 3.1.3 iPhone 2G Windows & OS X
    Restore your iphone to 3.1.3, use Redsn0w 0.9.4 but point to 3.1.2 ipsw.
    Check the box for Cydia and unlock, you need bootneuter 3.9 and 4.6

    Will do.

    I have read I do not need to have my sim installed for this to work. Is that correct? The only sim card I have is a T-Mobile one.

    Hi!

    My problem is pretty similar, however it is not happening to just the 'slide to unlock' screen, it also crashes my iPod whenever I tried to open it.

    I've followed the guide from redsnow's official site for the latest version too.

    My specs:
    iPhone 3G
    iOs 4.1

    Do a restore again and you can jailbreak with GP RC4 or Limera1n.

    Is this a 3g iphone or a 3g ipod ?

    If it is a 3g ipod, GreenPoison or Limera1n.

    If it is a 3g iphone, you are already at 4.1 ,then run the latest version of Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 or 0.9.7

    unfortinatly after the update the phone is stuck on the Slide to unlock and i can not slide
    the slide to shutdown is working fine but the cancel button is not working
    i can receive calls and SMS

    when i run the ipod by dauble clicking on the home button i can slide the volume with the digitizer

    i have tried to reset the phone
    restore the phone 10 times
    reverted back to 2.2.1 and 3.1.2 but still no luck with the "slide to unlock"

    is there a solution for this

    Put your iphone into recovery mode and
    Restore to 3.1.3 again , but this time use Redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak but browse to 3.1.2.
