Unlocking/Jailbreaking/Hacktivating CONFUSION, PLEASE HELP
I am really really confused with unlocking/jailbreaking/hactivating... There are so many softwares out there: blackra1n, blacksnow, redsnow, whitesnow.... I AM REALLY CONFUSED :(
If I am running Windows, what are the steps I need to carry out in order to unlock iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS and also the firmware to 3.1.2?
Based on my understand from reading around, I want to clarify:
It doesn't matter which iPhone I have: 2g, 3g, 3gs, the steps to hactivate/unlock/jailbreak are the following:
1) Update to latest firmwareOS 3.1.2 using iTunes
2) Use blackra1n to jailbreak & hacktivate
3) blackra1n will automatically install Cydia. I should use cydia to install blacksn0w, which I am guess will unlock the phone and the baseband???????????
Few more questions:
1) Whats this wifi problem I hear that everyone has? Will I have the same problem? How do I fix it if I get the same problem after unlocking/jailbreaking/hacktivating?
2) How I carry out the jailbreaking/unlocking process without losing data on the iPhone?
