since upgrading it before I hadnt been able to get 3G on my iPhone so i decided to update it and try to use redsnow and yellowsnow to get it back open. but after upgrading and trying to use redsnow following this tutorial given to me in the past my phone wont unlock?
after following the redsnow instructions my phone and itunes still looks like this :Connect your iPhone and Mac/PC, start iTunes 8.2.1 and hit Restore. This will restore your iPhone to iPhone OS 3.0.1 - it will be locked then.

Download the tools needed, all the links are in there. This will be the firmware file 3.0 that is used for jailbreak and activation. Works even when your iPhone is at firmware 3.0.1 (above). Jump in at "Step three" and do the tutorial.
Once done the iPhone will be jailbroken and activated but not unlocked.

Once done connect the iPhone to iTunes. iTunes will offer to "restore data from a backup". Dont, instead choose "setup as a new iphone". When done sync the iPhone to back your data.
any help with this?
