    What SIM are you using? Use the original Apple-authorized SIM card to activate. It doesn't need to be active or current. If you don't have an authorized SIM card, Sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool (expert mode) have the option to activate when creating a custom firmware.

    Did you select 'activate' in Sn0wbreeze?

    What SHSH blobs to you have? You need 4.1 SHSH blob to load 4.1, 4.2.1 blobs to load 4.2.1, etc, etc
    Use Tiny Umbrella. Select Save SHSH.

    After you get the SHSH blobs ....
    Build the custom firmware with sn0wbreeze, exit sn0wbreeze.
    Start Tiny Umbrella, press start TSS Server. It server state should be running.
    Use redsn0w (maybe an earlier version for 4.1) to enter pwnd-DFU mode. Follow the count-down timer precisely.
    Then start iTunes, shift/select custom firmware to load.
    After it's done the phone should boot to the springboard with the new firmware loaded.

    If you don't have any 4.x SHSH blobs, you can only load 3.1.2 or 3.1.2 on a 3G iphone.
    To load 3.1.2 or 3.1.3. Load a 'stock Apple firmware with iTunes (shift/select 3.1.2 or 3.1.3).
    Then use redsn0w (rc6 I believe), select 3.1.2 firmware in redsn0w, select install Cydia & activate.
    Done.

    Put iPhone into recovery mode or dfu mode depending what fw u are on, restore to stock 4.1. Use exit to kick out error 1015

    Then jailbreak it with redsn0w RC8 from emergency screen

    Do a reboot on your computer first

    Or close and open up iTunes. Restoring to stock 4.1 does not require TU and you can just point your hosts file towards applecserver by changing the option under adv tab in TU, no need manually edit hosts file.

    If you are getting 1611, something is wrong. Try changing USB, or use a different computer.
