    Default 3gs - updated to 4.3.4

    Hi.

    I'm new here and i've been reading lot's of stuff, but now I need your help.

    I had 4.1 with jailbreak and yesterday i've updated my iphone by mistake (so stupid ) and now i have 4.3.4 and canīt even connect/finish instalation because itunes ask for the original sim.



    What can I do?

    (sorry if this isn't the right section)

    You need to use PwnageTool or redsn0w (I can't remember which is current right now for 4.3.4, sorry...) to create a custom firmware that hacktivates, or to jailbreak your running 4.3.4 and hacktivate (PwnageTool creates a CFW, redsn0w jailbreaks your running firmware) in order to bypass this.

    You're lucky that 4.3.4 has a jailbreak (though as I recall, it is presently tethered). If you had done this at pretty much any other point in iOS history, you would have been stuck with a non-jailbreakable device and non-unlockable phone.

    Let this serve as a warning to you in the future, don't blindly update if you rely on a JB for anything.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.

    Ok...
    but can you tell me where to get more information/tutorial?

    PwnageTool is only for MAC?

    I'm a noob, sorry
    Please help!?

    Calm down and stop panicking. You are not stuck. n1ckn4m3 has already answered your question.
    Redsn0w can bypass this iTunes notification - iClarified has good guides explaining how to jailbreak with redsn0w. Be sure to use redsn0w 0.9.6 release candidate 19
    Do you rely on ultrasn0w for unlock? If you do, then I recommend you read up on the potential side effects of running the iPad 6.15 baseband on your 3GS (that is your only chance at unlock)

    It took a bit, but I've done it. I activated witt redsnOw 0.9.8b3 + IOS4.3.4 tethered.
    I've already managed to downgrade to IOS4.3.3 Activated.

    Now, I will have to see about the unlock. I have the 05.16.02 baseband. Where can I find the information you're saying?
    Is it better to get a imcard that unlocks so I don't loose GPS or/and WIFI? Where can I find it?

    In your country it is ILLEGAL to use the current generation of sim interposers that can unlock your phone.

    This is because ALL the SIM interposers that work, do so by calling 112 (the emergency number in your country).
    I strongly advise that you do not choose this solution.

    If you have a way to contact the original carrier the phone is locked to, ask them about authorising an unlock.
