    Default iPhone 3GS 4.2.1 Pwnage JB and Carrier Unlock?

    Hi

    Sorry if this is answered elsewhere.. I did search..!

    I asked my carrier - o2 in UK - to unlock my PAYG 3GS 32mb (firmware 05.11.07) last week. It is currently Jailbroken with Pwnage Tool 4.2.1. and I used Tinyumbrella..

    They said that Apple does the unlocking when I next connect the phone to iTunes..

    Well, I did that just now and all it did was prompt me to upgrade to 4.3.2 which of course I declined. Then nothing else happened...

    Presumably I need to restore the phone, and let them update to 4.3.2 at which point iTunes/Apple will unlock it and then I just JB again with pwnage tool 4.3.2 when it is released (hopefully soon)?

    Is this correct?

    Yes, but you can also restore to 4.2.1 (if you have SHSH saved) and iTunes will unlock too (it unlocks when it's activating the phone, right after the restore).
    Also, the latest redsn0w can jailbreak 4.3.2, if you don't care about upgrading baseband (since you're legitimately unlocked) you can just restore to 4.3.2 and use redsn0w, no need to wait for PwnageTool.

  3. Thanks sidereal thanked for this post.

    Hey element, thanks for the clear reply! I do have SHSH saved so may try just restoring to 4.2.1 instead.
    Thanks again.
