    Unhappy After upgrade to 4.2.1, iphone cannot activated, help?

    Hey eveyone,
    today i upgrade my 3GS to 4.2.1.
    06.15.00
    now im on emergency mode.
    when i connect my iphone to itunes, its showing me the error about the SIM, that its not original or something like that. (not activated).

    my iphone model is :
    MC131FB
    i check on google, and the resulte was that my iphone is Sim-Free!
    why i cant activat my iphone ? can it be that google is lie to me?

    another question, whem im trying to JB with GreenPois0n, its failed and JB not success .
    on google i saw that i need to try a few times until it will work fine.
    is that right?

    Was it on 06.15.00 baseband before you updated to 4.2.1?
    Greenpois0n does not include hacktivation. You need to hacktivate before you can unlock.

    The model number is not always enough to indicate that it is factory unlocked. Apple maintains a register of which phones are unlocked, this is based on a unique ID per phone, not just a model number.
    Baseband 06.15.00 should NEVER be used on a factory unlocked iPhone, it is not needed and will just create more problems.
    There are a lot of different "versions of greenpois0n" floating around the web, be sure to use rc5.3 or rc5.4, not older versions.
    You have provided no specific error codes or restore logs, so we can't really help you further until you provide these details.

    the baseband was 6.15.00 before the upgrade. (i buy it from someone-used)

    about the itunes logs, im sorry im at work right now, when i upgrade it was at home.
    if i'll try to activate with universal sim card, it should work?
    if not,
    the next step that i need to do, is JB Greenpois0n and then unlock with ultrasn0w, right?

    No, Apple blocked activation with universal sim card a few months ago.

    Restore 4.2.1, you should get an error 1015 or 1013
    JB with greenpois0n
    Run redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 - select "install cydia" only

    Thanks, but the first guide is "how to install sam", its not for push. And the guide is old, my sam not like in the pictures.

    About the push doctor, it work last week, but in the last 5 days, there is no Certificate and the installition is failed.
    I tried it so many times..but with no certificate i cant install it.

    SAM gives you legitimate push and youtube certificates - by tricking iTunes into activating the phone.
    Use your brain, most jailbreaking tools like TinyUmbrella and SAM get regular updates/tweaks - this can make guides with screenshots out of date - however the principle is generally the same.

    Pushdoctor is free and has had pretty much zero donations despite serving tens of thousands of certificates. I'm as disillusioned as the others who were originally involved in setting up pushdoctor that people have been so greedy and selfish to take free certs but few donate to help cover the costs of keeping the service running.

    you dont understand, before the upgrade i had SAM installed, and Push doesn't work.
    in the guide they say to press "De-Activate", i don't have that button!
    http://www.iclarified.com/images/tut...5759/45759.png
    also the "clear push sessions".

    this is my version of SAM :

    http://img593.imageshack.us/img593/9128/img0076r.png

    and my only option is to enable (ON) the HACKTIVATE, and PUSH still not working.

    thanks for keep helping me buddy.


    EDIT :
    ok, i just buy the PushFIX for 6$, and all works great.

    just last thing, today is the first time i connect the iphone to itunes (PC) since the JB with greenpois0n.
    before the JB (TOP Thread) i was getting the SIM error on itunes. (no activation)
    after JB (redsn0w also-for cydia) , the itunes working! SAM is not install at all on this 4.2.1 firmware.
    how can it be? redsn0w do activation?
