Just cant find it please help
I am fairly new to jailbreaking. I plan to do this and I dont think i would have such trouble if it wasnt for one issue, after all of the forums ive read this is the closest..."
Hi! I bought this used iPhone (3g running the 3.0 firmware) from someone in the UK, knowing that it was locked for the O2 service and i was planning to unlock it here in Dubai, myself. So when I arrived, although I had no service with my Etisalat sim card, the phone kept working, had wi-fi, ipod, etc. Now I decided to reset the phone to factory settings just to give it a fresh start and after i done that It keeps asking me for me to plug it in to itunes to activate. The problem is that now it will not activate because it doesnt have the O2 sim. AND the big problem is that it doesnt even show in My Computer so I can access it, and if im not wrong, i have to get there so i can get the firmware (.ipsw, right??) jailbroken with the redsn0w program... so.. what can I do???? is there ANY tool or trick that I can do to make this jailbraking and unlocking happen or I have to get somehow an 02 sim???
My problem is similar BUT..It has never been jailbroken or unlocked. Basically restored after newest software upgrade It keeps asking me for me to plug it in to itunes to activate" i DO NOT have a sim card AND it DOES NOT show up in itunes.
So heres the kicker..the phone is not active I cannot get to the home screen, I have the latest version of itunes 9.2 and newest upgrade on my iphone as well..How can i downgrade if I cannot even see a homescreen and if so can I jailbreak with the newest version?? 2 days so far right now my brain is killing me and I fear of big mistakes...CAN IT BE DONE?
Please Help it would be greatly appreciated!

iPhone 3G is easy, you have to use redsn0w, if you are on latest firmware 4.0, download here redsn0w 0.9.5 BETA [iPhone Dev Team]. Follow the instructions there. If for some reason you want to downgrade, you have to put the phone in DFU mode and restore in iTunes.
Just relax, iTunes is not recognizing your iPhone correctly because it is not activated, once you're done with redsn0w that will change.
