Thread: Restoring an Ultrasn0w unlocked iPhone 4?

  1. #1
    Default Restoring an Ultrasn0w unlocked iPhone 4?
    Hey guys, I recently bought an iPhone 4 from this guy online, and it was an AT&T iPhone that has been jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasn0w on 4.0.1.

    This iPhone is currently activated and completely functional. However, this iPhone is synced to his iTunes library, and I will have to restore it in order for it to work with mine.

    Here is the problem. I'm living in New Zealand, and this AT&T iPhone is only working right now because of the ultrasn0w unlock. If I restored it to 4.0.1, to my knowledge, the iPhone will become deactivated. If so, how can I activate it again?

    The iPhone 4 currently has no jailbreak method that works like PwnageTool (which can hacktivate it). I can only jailbreak it with JailbreakMe if it's been activated. The iPhone 4 can't function here in NZ unless it is jailbroken and unlocked.

    Can someone tell me what I should do in this situation? Is there any way to activate the iPhone if I restore it? I currently have a Vodafone NZ MicroSIM.

    I believe u would need an AT&T sim card or possible a phonebook sim card. U can get both off eBay

    U don't need to restore to sync it to ur library. It's just going to clear the music off, NOT mess up ur unlock.

    Thanks for the response, I was too afraid to press anything because it might get rid of the jb. It's a relief to hear I won't lose anything. Interestingly, how did the guy who sold it to me in the first place activate his? =/

    It won't force me to update to 4.1 after I erase it and sync with my library, right?

    It won't force u too update, it will just clear the media off and then you can sync it to your library for future uses. I couldn't tell you if he activated or hacktivated it when he had it. Did he have an original sim for it??

    I thought you can't hacktivate an iPhone 4?
