    Default Phone not recognized by any hacking programs.

    Hey all,

    I'm new here so I hope I have this in the right spot. But thus far every program I have tried has failed at unlocking, jailbreaking my phone. Only one has successfully paired with my phone, but it messed it up and I had to restore it.

    Cliffnotes

    I have tried Blackra1n. Everytime I open it up it says "This application has failed to start because ASL.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." It still does this after several re-installs. However it does open up, and once I click "Make it Ra1n." It crashes. So that is as far as I have gotten with it.

    Doesn't work

    Secondarily I tried Redsn0w 0.9.4, and it did recognize the phone. However upon completion of the hack, the screen on my iphone would not work. So I had to restore it and I am afraid to use it again and risk damaging my phone.

    Doesn't work

    Lastly, I tried ZiphoneGUI v3.0. This seems to be the easiest program to use however it always get's stuck at "Searching for Iphone". It will sit there for twenty minutes or more without finding the phone. I have followed the guides and faqs on properly hooking up the phone but still no luck.

    Still Doesn't work

    My phone stats are as follows to the best of my knowledge.

    Iphone 3gs (as far as I know)
    (Firmware?) Version- 3.1.2 (7D11)
    Carrier- AT&T 5.6
    Serial Number (4th and 5th digits)- 02
    Model- MC135LL
    (Baseband?) Modem Firmware- 05.11.07

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and again I apologize if I may of posted this in the wrong section.

    Okay number one - don't even think about using any 2G tools on a 3GS. Ziphone was a dangerous tool when it was released and on a 3GS will simply not work (which is good because it has the risk of permanently breaking your phone if it did find the phone.).

    Secondly. Redsn0w 0.9.4 is not for the 3GS

    Redsn0w 0.9.2 is the most recent "stable release" everything above 0.9.2 is a beta/special release.

    Thirdly, the blackra1n problem is because you have iTunes 9.1 which blackra1n does not work with.

    So.. none of the tools you tried to use are right for the task.

    Finally, you only quote two digits of your serial number - but they suggest you have "new bootrom" - to be sure you need to check firstly that the third digit is 0 and then to be 100% sure follow the procedure in this link - it is 100% safe and will not affect your phone at all PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X

    So solutions:

    I recommend redsn0w 0.9.2 - you just need to be sure about if it is old or new bootrom. I suspect you are new bootrom but you need to be 100% sure so use the link I mentioned.

    Or you can properly remove iTunes Removing and reinstalling iTunes, QuickTime, and other software components for Windows Vista or Windows 7 and then restart, install iTunes 9.0.3 or lower, restart again. Then use blackra1n RC3

    I don't recommend blackra1n (it takes too many shortcuts, which is why it does not work with iTunes 9.1) but it will work with an older version of iTunes.

    Olethros. I really appreciate your reply. I will follow the links you have posted and report back with my outcome. I have found that the vast amount of forums available for iphone hacking and the locations of some of the programs for hacking can cause a bit of confusion as to what a program can actually do. It seems I have found an informative forum here at hackintosh.

    Thanks!

    Well I have run into a problem. Apparently I didn't realize that I updated the phone to 3.1.3 (7E18) Through Itunes. So as of now I can't even get it into DFU mode. Also the Modem Firmware is now upgraded to 05.12.01. FML

    Also the Serial Number (3rd, 4th and 5th digits)- xx002xxxxxx

    Ok I finally got it into DFU mode. I should mention at this point that I am using Windows XP Media Center Edition V.2002. SP3.

    Following the DFU instruction I get to the Details tab and look at the drop box. The instructions say to look for "Device Instance Path" But my drop down box only shows "Device Instance ID".

    In Device Instance ID (while in DFU mode) it shows- "USB\VID_05AC&PID_1227|5%3999904DE&0&6"

    Secondarily when the phone is just hooked up the Device Instance ID shows- "USB\VID_05AC&PID_1294\OB856EBE011D9AEE2B3B20246BA D81988971D975"

    Maybe I should hook this thing up to my Macbook instead of this PC?

    You are looking at the wrong value: It should be "Device Instance Path" not "Device Instance ID" I explained this clearly in this post PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X

    I am confused, I understand that you restored to 3.1.3 by mistake and you are trying to JB your iPhone BUT you cannot JB 3.1.3 at this time as far as I read everywhere so what is the point of trying with DFU and these programmes?
    Since you were at 3.1.2 and appear to have the old bootrom, why don't you make your own 'custom 3.1.2 ipsw' using the pwnage tool on your Mac and use that to go back down to a firmware that you can then JB?
    Custom firmware should not require an SHSH blob on the old bootrom so it should be possible for you.

    PS - you will not be able to unlock the baseband 5.12.01 until someone releases that hack in the summer - if at all, but there should be an unlock coming for 4.0 at the same time, fingers crossed for you!

    Olethros - I just checked for my iboot and "Right Click and choose 'Properties', navigate to 'Details' tab and select Device Instance Path from the dropdown list box. At the end of this information string you will find the bootrom version, e.g. [iBoot-359.x] " does not supply the iboot details, the string is similar to what SLP has stated, just a number string. There is another way to find bootrom detials using terminal but to be honest at this time of night I cannot be bothered searching so SLP can do his own search - it is detailed in 'iclarified.com' somewhere in the iphone section in tutorials.
