    Default iPhone giant problem :P

    Oh hey guys, first of all, my name's Elder and I got a big problem in my hands , i'm totally new to this stuff of iPhone and iTunes and all... so :
    Ok, suddenly, my father did something on iTunes that looks like file cleaning(Maybe a restore ? i googled it and looks like it cleans all the files in iPhone) and since then, it came up with an error : "No SIM Card installed - Insert a valid SIM with no PIN lock to activate iPhone", So, I thougth it has something to do with the file cleaning, then i googled it(Also searched in hackint0sh forum) and many people got this type of problem, and my point is : Can we use the iPhone without a SIM card ? - Yeah, I looked for answers but all of them came up that I should use a phonebook card, but is there a way I can use it without using any other mobile card ?
    U might think that I didn't look for other places, but, all the answerd I got is that I need to jailbreak it, and since im a rookie to this Apple stuff...
    I had another problem, but imma edit here when I remember
    Please, Love <3

    Thanks for attention

    You have a Canadian carrier locked, 16GB black iPhone 4 with iOS 4.2.1 and corresponding baseband.

    If you are on a legitimate contract, then getting it working again should be simply a matter of inserting the SIM card that is linked to your contract, enter the pin code (if you have one) and then hook the phone up to iTunes 10.1 or higher on a computer that has internet connection. iTunes will check the SIM card with an Apple server and activate the phone.

    However, if you were using an unofficial unlock before your father did what sounds like a restore. Then you have lost your unofficial unlock.

    To get this phone working again, you have three options:
    Activate the phone with a legitimate SIM card from the carrier it is locked to (It could be any of the carriers in Canada that sell iPhones)
    Jailbreak/hacktivate
    If the iPhone is locked to Rogers (and you want to use another carrier)

    This phone can be jailbroken and hacktivated (allowing everything besides the actual phone/SMS/3G data functionality to work) with either:
    Pwnagetool 4.2 (mac only) or
    Greenpois0n RC6.1 plus redsn0w 0.9.6rc8

    As of today, it cannot be unlocked via ultrasn0w.

    Hmm, I'm sorry, I mentioned before that i'm new to this stuff, so I came up with a few questions :

    - Do I have to run both redsnow and greenpoison ? Or are they separated programs to jailbreak ? If I have to run both, is there an order to run them ?
    - I have been seeing some tutorial stuff, and I found a greenpois0n tutorial, what's SHSH ?
    - I tried to run redsn0w, and it told me to select my phone's IPSW. dunno what's that

    If you remember, could you put some acronyms that would help me ? Only if you remember, don't wanna be harsh and look lazy to you >_>

    You know, I do mention that you should search for your own answers yourself in nearly every post I make.

    Yes you need to run greenpois0n, then redsn0w. The first program jailbreaks (untethered) and the second one hacktivates

    http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=SHSH

    You need to download the 4.2.1 IPSW iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw (if you don't already have it on your hard drive) from here http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm
    Redsn0w requires this to obtain the right files to hacktivate the phone.
