Thread: Unlocking iphone 3g IOS 4.1 . HELP PLEASE

  1. #1
    Default Unlocking iphone 3g IOS 4.1 . HELP PLEASE
    Hello

    i have a iphone 3G currently jailbroken with redsnow and unlocked with ultrasnow on ios 4.0.1 baseband: 5.13.04

    i would like to upgrade to ios 4.1

    if i use snwbreeze 2.0.2 will i be able to jailbreak and still unlock with ultrasnow?

    i really rely on unlock as im using my iphone with a prepaid sim (simple mobile)

    i would just stay on 4.0.1 but is slow to the poiunt oif barely functioning. i checked all around the net and there is no clear answer anywhere .

    please any one who knows please tell me. i dont want to risk locking my iphone

    As long as you use a custom firmware with no baseband update you should be fine.

    Just make sure you shift+restore (and not just click restore by itself) to the custom firmware.

    Hows the performance on your 3g now that you have upgraded to 4.1?

    I'm not sure about the battery life. I've been extensively using my phone lately more than I used to, so I really can't test that. Have you noticed an improvement?

    Default Request
    I have iPhone 3G OS 4.1, 05.14.02. - jailbroken, but I can't unlock it for other carriers. I've installed ultrasn0w, but iPhone couldn't find network and blocked. When I tried to downgrade it , there was 3194 issue, which I unsuccessfully tried to fix with this video ( [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHuQbh_eS-w&feature=related]YouTube - Fix 3194 and 1015 downgrade iTunes/iPhone error [English][/ame] ).
    Can You please help me?

    There is no unlock for that baseband, there is nothing you can do.

    Nobody knows right now. If I had to guess I would say at least a few months though.
