Thread: iPhone 3G won't activate after 3.0 jailbreak

  1. #1
    Default iPhone 3G won't activate after 3.0 jailbreak
    iPhone 3G
    Mac OS X 10.5.7
    iTunes 8.2 Pre Release
    Pwnagetool 3.0

    I made the custom IPSW file then restored and waited a bit and it didn't activate. I restored my backup file and still nothing. It's been about 30 minutes now.

    unplug iPhone, and repeat proper steps to JB. I've had a problem in the past quite similar and after a few disconnects and reconnects, problem solved. I was using pwnage and custom ipsw.

    did you make sure you unchecked the activate box prior to building your ipsw?

    in pwntage tool go to expert mode then follow the steps until you get to the the part where it has general,packages,build etc etc. then click on general follow the steps and make sure activate iphone is checked then use that firmware i did that.

    i had the same problem, i did expert mode, unchecked the box like other's said, and it won't activate.

    i tried the simple mode. everything worked perfectly.

    Turn off your phone on the activate page, and turn it back on. Your phone will then recognize the USB cable and activate. Make sure iTunes is launched.
