    Thumbs down I can't activate or unlock my iphone ( needing an expert plz )

    Hello

    i have i IPHONE 3g, i had a problem with my Power button, sometimes it works and sometimes it dosen't work

    so i wanted to restaure my iphone , when i finishesd i was surprised by seeing the message that i need a sim card to activate the Iphone

    i tried many ways to activate the Phone:
    1-by redsn0w i downloaded firemware 4 ( i coulsdn't make the iphone in DFU mode by both of ways manual and automatic)

    2- by itunes and restaure by custom firemware that i downloaded 4
    error 1015, i tried by recboot to fix the error but noway

    3- by Ziphone, i couldn't "rebooting in RECOVERY MODE" it shows that message


    so please how can i activate my iphone without a sim card?


    thank youu

    Ziphone has never been recommended by this forum. It only works on the 2G iPhone running iOS 1.1.x - DO NOT USE IT on a 3G iPhone, at best it won't work, at worst it could permanently damage your iPhone's radio/baseband

    Without the power button working, you can't get into DFU mode. Redsn0w and pwnagetool require DFU mode to pwn the phone.

    By restoring to stock apple IPSW you have removed the existing pwn of LLB on your iPhone.

    I've heard that Apple repair staff / genius bar staff have a way to legitimately activate without a SIM card.

    http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/80193.htm try that - you MUST use pwnagetool for this.

    Or get your power button fixed.

    Or force your iPhone into recovery mode then in iTunes shift-restore to stock iOS 3.1.2, use tiny umbrella to exit recovery mode after downgrade.

    Use blackra1n rc3 to jailbreak. Then use pwnagetool custom ipsw to restore to 4.0

    That is simpler than the corrupt LLB method I linked to in the previous post.
