Can anyone help with jailbreaking iphone 3G please.
yeah i know im suppose to post this is 3G section but it wont let me and it says this forum is not accepting new posts.
Anyhow this phone belongs to my sister, its an Iphone 3G that she somehow got stuck in DFU mode for probably 6 months now. she send it to me from NYC and well long story short i got everything else fixed but the iPhone wont come out of DFU mode even with tiny umbrella so i just restored iPhone to factory setting and i think it updated to the recent IOS which is 4.2. the problem is now i have no idea whats the base-band firmware and while shes still with at&t she changed her plan and now owns an android phone. so the phone is locked and she dont have the sim card either.
i'm trying to get her phone jailbreak and then unlocked but i have no idea how to go ahead with it. i downloaded redsnow 0.9.8b4, and restore firmware version 4.3.5 and 4.3.4 but when i run itunes and try to restore it says not compatible. i'm thinking becoz i have a 3G and the firmware is for 3Gs. so anyone who can help me and show me the right direction would be much appreciated. i havent worked on iphone since i sold my iphone 2g. so alil rusty although i still know about iclarified and i check them too while i did find how to unlock it it says the phone has to be jailbroken first.
so anyone please help and thank you!!!
i know i posted this in iphone 4G as well but i just find a way to post this in 3g forum. sorry for the repost
Use TinyUmbrella to find out the iOS and baseband version
It's likely that you have iOS 4.2.1 (as the 4.3.x series DOES NOT RUN on the iPhone 3G)
Regardless you are using the wrong IPSW (and also an outdated redsn0w) - use redsn0w 0.9.6rc19
There are guides on iClarified explaining how to jailbreak a 3G iPhone - just start at the beginning of the iClarified wizard and choose your phone mode, OS and computer platform.
What carrier do you want to use the phone with? If you want to use the phone with AT&T then there is zero point in unlocking.
Also, please don't create a second thread just because you mis-posted in the wrong section. Instead edit your original post to explain that you want a moderator to move your thread to the correct place.
