    Find and delete the library.xx file; or accept the 2.x firmware (it's not bad) using Quickpwn to jailbreak/activate and Bootneuter to unlock; or search the forum for further instructions on downgrading iTunes if you really want to.

    Installing Cydia programs on a phone that has no internet connection: read this.

    Editing binary .plist, .strings, .nib and .xib files:
    * on your computer: Windows tool / conversion website.
    * on your iPhone: convert those files in a terminal with plutil (installed with Erica Utilities) or edit them with iFile (Cydia links).

    why not use quickpwn 2.2?
    use itunes 8 to shift click restore 2.2 then use quickpwn 2.2 and that should fix you up

    ok if the device is activated and jailbroken u can istall bootneuter from cydia.
    The error u got maybe is because u dont have the 3.9 and 4.6 bootloader files, or do you?
    Anyway if u dont have them u can google search for them and ull be fine. If u have them and u got this error but ur device is activated and jailbroken, then u can install bootneuter from cydia and then set ur phone's autolock to never, and finally flash ur baseband/bootloader by means of bootneuter with the options:
    -bootloader version 4.6 maybe? because the use of ziphone may have downgraded ur bootloader from 4.6 to 3.9
    -neuter=ON
    -unlock=ON

    P.S it is very important to set autolock to never and be very patient while flashing the bootloader/baseband, as interrupting this process will most probabaly end u up in a bricked/useless paperweight. This may take upto 15 minutes so be patient and make sure ur battery is full and is plugged to an external power outlet

    Good luck
