    Unhappy Unlock Factory 3gs Locked

    Hi all
    I think I did somethin' very special
    I have a 3gs factory unlock by the model number mc132zp which I checked and it's correct,simply I jailbreaked it with blackra1n and now it's locked I mean everytime I reboot it it goes to recovery screen and need's to be connected to blackra1n I tried restoring it many times but there were no advantage in it
    also before jailbreaking I checked that it was on 3.1.2 and modem firmware was 05.11.07
    I know its weird but can anyone give me an advice

    This is not special, and if you had searched around before posting you would discover this is normal behaviour when jailbreaking 3GS iPhones made & sold after september this year. They have an updated bootrom chip that closes one of the holes used in jailbreaking. This means that every time it reboots the built in security features of the iPhone detect the jailbreak and refuse to continue booting.

    Solution #1
    Connect iPhone to computer and run blackra1n again. This will allow the iPhone to boot up again. You need to do this every time the iPhone boots (for example if the battery goes flat)

    Solution #2
    Put the iPhone into DFU mode http://www.hackint0sh.org/f137/54082.htm
    Connect to iTunes and restore the iPhone
    Set it up as new

    This removes all files from the iPhone and removes all traces of the jailbreak. Be sure to backup any vital files first.

    Are you sure it was DFU mode? Screen is black in DFU mode.

    Hello, if it is factory unlocked, then after restoring (you do not even need to enter DFU just restore when iTunes says it needs restoring - that's what i do), when it restarts put UR SIM and wait for itunes to activate it. If it does not activate this means you do not have a factory unlocked phone.

    I am confused about your use of the term locked/factory unlocked.

    The proper use of unlock is to refer to the ability to use the iPhone with SIM cards from all carriers or simply locked to the carrier you purchased it with.

    Also, there is a difference between two very similar screens.

    One is recovery mode

    or

    The other is connect to iTunes for activation


    Notice that the activation mode has a slide for emergency at the bottom of the screen.

    All iPhones require activation (or hacktivation if you cannot legitimately activate) with iTunes. This is a separate thing to unlock.

    With an officially unlocked phone it needs to be connected to iTunes to activate and unlock at the same time. The phone will be locked after a restore until it has been activated/unlocked in iTunes.
    He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
