Thread: Help with 3G on 4.1

    Default Help with 3G on 4.1
    Hey guys,

    I got my iphone 3g jailbroken, but now I am having trouble unlocking it. I tried yellowsnow, but after doing so it still says searching. Wifi works, but I have no other signal besides this. Is there another way I can unlock the phone or another tool?
    PS,I have a PC not a mac.

    Thanks,

    If you are on 3.1 the you should use ultrasn0w to unlock. Just to be sure go into settings-general-about and scroll down to modem firmware and see what it says there.

    I'll help you through it, but first im gonna need a few bits of information.

    First of all, if you could post all the info under Settings>general>about.

    We are looking specifically for your current version, serial number, and modem firmware.

    Its up to you whether or not you want to do it now or not. You have two options. You can shift-click restore to 3.1.3 and jailbreak with redsn0w 0.9.4 or jailbreakme.com, or you can use sn0wbreeze or pwnage tool to make a custom 4.1 and restore to that. If you restore to a regular 4.1 you will lose the ability to unlock.

    Well now itunes is being picky about a downgrade fimrware, I cant seem to find one it will take. Does the fact im using itunes 10 matter? I couldnt find an older verison of it to download anywhere..

    ITunes should be fine loading a custom 4.1. Any other (4.x) version requires previously saved info and Tiny Umbrella. Load a custom firmware (sn0wbreeze) to keep your unlockable modem firmware version.

    Check to see what your modem firmware says in settings-general-about. You may have a modem firmware that is not unlockable right now.

    ya, that cant be unlocked right now. Good news is a new unlock may be out later this week depending on if 4.2 comes out tomorrow.

    Shoot, I was afraid of this.. So now I have to wait for 4.2 to be released? When will we find out if an unlock for the modem is out or where can I go to keep up onit? I paid for my first month of t-mobile, I'd like to use my iphone lol but if its a few days that I can live with..

    Sometimes 'Reset Network Settings' helps.

    Oops, 5.14.x is bad .. Cannot be unlocked now
