    Default iphone 3gs on 4.3.3 BB 05.13.04--UNLOCK JB HELP
    my wife recently came back to the iphone world after getting ripped apart by android. anywho, she has the above listed iphone and i am having a terrible time jb and unlocking it. any help is much appreciated.

    my 3gs is BB 5.13.04 and on 4.0. obviously, i would like to PRESERVE the BB, but i would like both phones to be on the highest possible FW that has the most benefits.

    thanks in advance for your help!

    For your wife phone;

    Download redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 and the official 4.3.3 ipsw (I'll link them at end of post). Once you have both of those (ipsw will be needed for your phone too), run redsnow follow the steps and only install cydia. Redsnow will ask you for your ipsw point it to the 4.3.3 you downloaded. Once it's done install ultrasn0w from cydia after updating everything in cydia first. Now her phones unlocked and done.

    Now to your phone:

    You are going to download sn0wbreeze (link at end) like mentioned above to preserve your baseband. It'll be pretty self explanatory (snowbreeze) you want baseband preservation mode. It'll ask for ipsw like redsnow, once that's done it'll help you get unto pwned dfu for the restore to the cfw you just made with snowbreeze. MAKE SURE when you shift+restore in iTunes to select the snowbreeze one on your desktop not the iphone2,1****.ipsw. If you restore to the iphone2.1****.ipsw you will lose your baseband and ability to unlock.

    If your phone errors in iTunes with a 1600 error you are going to have to open redsn0w and select the pwned dfu option only and follow the instructions and shift+restore in iTunes again. Sometimes snowbreeze has issues with pwned dfu hence the 1600 error. Once restored to cfw open cydia update everything and install ultrasn0w. Now your phones unlocked and done.

    If you have any ??? Or problems just ask I'll check back.

    Now for the links.

    ok i tried with greenpoison, snowbreeze 2.6.1 and 2.7.3, now her phone is stuck in dfu mode. tried redsnow 0.9.6tc16, with option JUST install cydia, it made me check the "newer" iphone box, started to jb and now is hung up on the following:

    Mounting rootfs as read-only...
    ERROR!
    AppleBCMWLAN::handleIOKitBusyWatchdogTimeout(): Error, no successful firmware download after 60000 ms!! Giving up...

    What happened ? From my understanding, you ran greenpoison on top of your custom firmware restore and your iphone is now in DFU mode. Is that correct ?

    i purchased a 3gs for my wife. 4.3.3 on BB of 5.13.04. I first tried greenpoison, which looked like it was going to work, but then got hung up on the reboot, then i was told to try snowbreeze with 4.3.2, so i tried that and ever since, i have been in a neverending dfu mode. i tried snowbreeze 2.7.3 as well. most recently, i have tried redsnow 0.9.6tc16 trying both the just install cydia, and enter pwned dfu option, each time i try and load cooked ispw, i get an error or it hangs on reboot. most recent error is 1600.

    tried tiny umbrella and ireb..neither worked

    and i cant get out of dfu to see what the bb and fw are currently

    Oh wow. Ok now you need to do what I said in my first post for your phone to hers now. Exactly as I wrote them if you don't you have the chance of losing that baseband and unlock.

    2.7/4.3.3 the one I linked you to.
    Apple only signing 4.3.3 so let's keep it as simple as we can.

    correct. Does itunes recognize your dfu mode and wants you to restore again.
    Have you done a hard reset: hold both buttons until it reboots and tell me what happens

    When you restore to cfw of 4.3.3 using cfw of 4.3.3 created by snowbreeze 2.7.3 and you end up in Snowflakes screen
    Run redsn0w RC16 again but just choose tethered boot.

    He screwed up the file system by running greenpoison over 4.3.3 then restored to a firmware apple not signing so he threw the whole toolbox at it. It'll (power+home) just drop back into dfu since he restored to 4.3.2 with no blobs. Redsn0w errored because he was using rc16 on a 4.3.2 instead of rc14 which is for 4.3.2. He didn't mention the whole tried to restore to cfw 4.3.2 part otherwise my answer would have been different.

    Why would he boot tethered? Just curious with your reason for doing the last step. And where you going with this?

    Shift+restore to cooked firmware from snowbreeze in iTunes.

    Edit: Forget redsnow for now.
