    Default weird occurance

    So last night, I finally got my hands on the last of the tools I would need to upgrade my 3g from 05.11.07 3.1.3 to 4.2.1 without BB update. tmobile by the way.

    the ideal situation for me.

    except I forgot to click the hacktivate option while pwning.
    But lo' and behold after reboot, I was presented with the homescreen
    complete with cydia icon.

    I had done a push fix back on 3.1.3, and from what I remember, it sounds a lot like what SAM does. Except I didn't need to hook up Itunes to activate.

    I installed SAM before this whole realization hit me, and SAM says it is factory activated. Does this mean I never need to worry about activation again and just make sure an unlock is available?

    So you are saying that in "expert mode" in pwnagetool, you turned the "activation" checkbox off? And that iTunes was not used to activate. This doesn't sound right.

    I think you did actually hacktivate.

    well another funny thing.

    I clicked the de-activate button in SAM, to make sure I am using the non-battery draining method. Rebooted..and I was still activated, wasn't plugged into Itunes at any point.

    You have hacktivated Lockdownd installed and need to remove it.

    Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 can do this.

    Ah! That was the name of the fix I did. Actually, SAM has a button for this. Any reason not to use it? I can never get .9.6b6 to recognize my stock 4.2.1 restore. Luckily, up until this point I only needed special DFU button and used an old 3.1.3 FM to get past that screen.

    You mean the "Revert Lockdownd to Stock" option in SAM, it should work if you used redsn0w or pwnagetool to originally jailbreak.

    I am unsure if that option works for phones that were jailbroken with greenpois0n or limera1n - especially I doubt it works for limera1n's hacktivation
