    Default [help?] upgraded to 3.0 and messed up everything

    well, i just got an iphone 3g (unlocked from fido, im with rogers, jailbroken) for my bday (today) and i already managed to screw it up.

    1. was all excited, tried to sync my itunes to my iphone, it told me to update to 3.0, im a noob and went ahead (not realising its going to relock my phone) --> thus, im freaking out. i started searching online, people suggest restoring it through itunes, so i restore it.

    2. now its at the emergency screen, telling me to activate my phone by inserting a valid sim

    after reading all these threads, just want to confirm what i should do next:

    -first reactive the phone by putting a fido sim into it? i can borrow my neighbours.
    -second, i'll have to jailbrake it and unlock it again right? so i'll have to use ultasnow/cydia to then unlock it? and when i am jailbraking it, do i have to have the fido sim in it?

    then it should work right? but again, i restored it (i think, so i dont even know what firmware its running on) .... what should i do?

    please help a stressing birthday girl out with her ...broken brand new phone.

    thanks

    Slight problem.
    3.01 has been released so if you restored that is what you will have.
    You will need to download RedSn0w 0.8
    Download FW 3.0 ipsw
    Leave your SIM in the phone and run RedSn0w and use the FW 3.0 ipsw (not the 3.01 ipsw) then add the UltraSn0w repo and install UltraSn0w.

    thanks so much gkscit and Confucious, i feel much more relieved though I am still freaking out now knowing i probably restored 3.0.1.

    after hours of reading up on this and your directions:

    to install redsnow i can follow this: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS on OS 3.0 Using RedSn0w (Mac) (and ultrasnow) and all while im installing redsnow and ultrasnow, i should have the original sim card in it? the fido one right?

    but should i still activate it first through itunes with the fido sim card (not mine but an active one) to bypass the emergency screen to recover my regular screen? or should i hack-activate? id prefer to just use the sim card to activate it first, get it back to the regular screen, then run redsnow ...

    is that okay?

    and when i originally ran the update, it was through itunes so is there somewhere where i can find the fw ipsw?

    thanks in advance, i owe you guys big time. at least i know im not doomed.

    Talking

    iclarified has the good tutorials...infact if you on 3.0.1 you also need to download 3.0 as readsn0w doesn’t recognize 3.0.1. direct readsn0w to 3.0 and it will jailbreak the phone ( which is hactivation and you will come out of SOS calls screen).

    Then fire cydia application and add repo666.ultrasn0w.com which will unlock
    Thanx * Rgds,

    gkscit: and to confirm, i WILL need a fido sim card in the phone when install it to hack/jailbreak/unlock to get itunes to even connect to my iphone right.

    because right now, because it wont read my rogers SIM, and i dont have a FIDO sim with me right now (ill get it later today), itunes wont connect me because i dont have a sim in my phone.

    how long do u think it will take to jailbreak + unlock it?

    Just run readsn0w it will hactivate the phone (no need for activation-it will bypass the activation). Ultrasnow will unlock it for you.
