    Default Hacktivate 3GS 3.1.3 05.12.01

    I'm one of those unfortunate ones who updated their 3GS' to 3.1.3. To top it off, the phone is unactivated; stuck in emergency mode. The iPhone belongs to another country, so I can't get a hold of the sim which could activate it or at least allow me to use Spirit jailbreak.

    Is there a way to hacktivate/jailbreak the phone without using the original sim?

    P.S. It's a 3GS on 3.1.3 with baseband 05.12.01.

    I think I have the same problem with me. I am not sure I have 3.1.3 or not but my phone is deactivated and in emergency mode and I am now not in the same country where my brother bought it (its a gift from my brother).

    Karl, how do you know it is 3.1.3 with baseband 05.12.01? How can I check it on my phone?

    Many Thanks

    I used f0recast to check the firmware and baseband versions.

    thanks karl.

    so yah, ours is absolutely same thing...

    3.1.3 with baseband 05.12.01

    Bootloader : 6.4
    Model: MC132

    It says it is Jailbreakable only if SHSH is on file. what is SHSH?

    Unlockable, No. There goes my dream

    Untethered; depends if it is refurbished? what does that mean?

    Many Thanks.

    i think the only way to "activate" 3.1.3 firmware is with an oficial sim, no matter if its old

    i use an 3 year old at&t sim to activate mine, then spirit to jailbreak

    ^dam. You are correct.

    Buy an older AT&T SIM from eBay, it doesn't need to be working or attached to any current plan. You may need to buy 2 or 3 to get one that is accepted by iTunes.

    Jailbreak with Spirit. Install ultrasn0w from Cydia (works for all basebands through 5.13.04). Carrier FREEDOM

    Done

    NOTE: SHSH blobs allow restoring to an old firmware without Apples approval. (Apple officially allows restoring to the current version only!!) Why do you care? Old versions can be jailbroken, new ones can't!

    If Cydia has your old saved SHSH blobs, you will see a message at the top of the main Cydia screen "SHSH blobs are saved for version, version, version, etc....."

    Problems? If you have no option but to restore?...............
    Don't update or restore unless you absolutely must. I'm serious about this --- without SHSH blobs there is no going back. Even with SHSH blobs, your baseband is updated and no unlock exists for 4.x!! If you must restore --- don't. You will likely loose future jailbreaking or unlocking or both! Wait for some official news from the Dev-Team. Jailbreaking current FW (4.0/4.0.1) has not officially been released. Wait! Let the dust settle a bit .. wait for the bugs fixes ... wait for the REAL thing. Did I tell you to wait ???

    Another idea is:

    Twitter / sherif hashim: iPhone activation without ...

    This uses some sort of cheaply available SIM card that will activate all but the 2G iPhone.

    Another path:

    If you know someone who has an ATT phone:

    1: Tell them to go to the ATT store and tell ATT that they think that they lost their phone but have another older GSM phone that they can use until they find it or replace it later. A replacement SIM is free.

    2: they go home, put the new SIM in their phone, give you the old ATT SIM

    use that to activate
