    Default Confused about OS 3.0 downgrade/unlock

    Hi

    For 5 days I've done nothing but read up on iPhones and have learnt alot, jailbroken already with no fuss but am lost at unlocking.

    First thing, should I downgrade OS? If so, why and how as have actually tried and I get 1601 error all the time but i know am in DFU mode.

    If downgrade not required then why hasn't my current attempts to unlock worked?

    I have restored OS3.0 but can't activate as the SIM card is gone.

    Also, if I put a different O2 sim in a "carrier" option appears, whats this?

    Version 7A341
    Modem FW 04.26.08

    Cheers

    I assume that you are locked to o2.
    - Now you have restored 3.0 then just run readsn0w with SIM (which you would be using)inside the Iphone.

    Post jail breaking download ultrasn0w from cydia by adding repo666.ultrasn0w.com in managesources edit  add

    Please reply on outcome.
    Thanx * Rgds,

    Done that, still nothing

    Have asked for the original SIM of mate but doesn't have, phone is a hand me down and am suspecting is blocked as he has another iphone.

    Will the unlock still work?

    yes... but when you run readsn0w with your other SIM inside which usually does the trick... i feel is the second hand phone which might be blocked as theft?

    I'm thinking blocked due to stupidity, his mrs "lost" the phone down the sofa, he claimed on insurance, she then found it.....seems no one cleans up in their house!

    Guessing it's just an iTouch now, possibly gonna look to getting a broken iPhone and use parts to repair it.

    On a good note, I found a firmware that is 3.0, jailbroke and hackivated so least I don't get the message each time I turn it on
