    Default Open a IMEI locked Iphone 3G, only using DFU mode!!!

    A discovery a guy from Norway accidentally stumbled over...!!!???

    Having put the phone in DFU mode (iClarified - iPhone - How to Put an iPhone Into DFU Mode), and tried to restore with a costum ipsw file (which did not go when the software was incompatible with the phone), I restart the phone. Ever surprisingly I got the "iPhone activated", and full coverage! Only after a round in DFU!

    I have zero idea what has happened here, but if I restart, turn off / on, or attempt to change sim card, it falls back on "No Service". Then I take it in and out of DFU, so it works fine again!

    The phone is jailbreaket with redsn0w v0.8 and unlock with ultrasn0w (via cydia), which may have something to do with the matter. Firmware is 3.0

    Have tested the functionality, and everything seems to work.

    If you have that IMEI blacklisted I wouldn't make a call if I were you.
