    Default Overseas + Stuck in recovery + no sim + pwnage won't recogize ispw

    Brief description of problem. Had an activated iphone 3G 3.1.3 jb and unlocked stateside a few months ago. I am a peace corps volunteer in Africa and have been having service issues so I decided to try to restore and then re-jb and unlock. However, after 'restoring' it is stuck in recovery mode and saying that my sim is invalid. Have successfully installed 3.1.3 firmware through itunes(firmware was DL off of iClarified) restore but the ispw is not recognized in pwnage or redsnow. I would just as soon put my old att sim in the phone but I don't have it anymore. Not sure what to do. Have tried all the DFU tricks and umbrella to kick it out of restore mode. Any advice would be great. MIght just be a brick for awhile til I can find a colleague with a proper ATT sim.

    to recape.

    1. Stateside jb/unlock
    2. moved to africa had service issues decided to restore through itunes
    3. 'restored' through itunes (not from iClarified this time)
    4. invalid sim(att sim is in the trash in america) screen in itunes pops up and iphone screen is in recovery mode
    5. Tried to restore with iClarified ispw for 3g - 3.1.3 file. Restored in itunes with this file successfull but when trying to do the same with pwnage, pwnage won't recognize ispw.
    6. have tried every DFU and umbrella application trick but still no dice.

    Thx!

    Ryan

    What version of pwnagetool? You need Pwnagetool 3.1.5 to make a custom IPSW based on iOS 3.1.3

    Redsn0w 0.9.2 or 0.9.4 will also hacktivate, but you need to download a 3.1.2 IPSW (you don't restore the 3.1.2 IPSW, but when redsn0w asks for an IPSW you point redsn0w at the 3.1.2 IPSW even though you have restored 3.1.3 on the iPhone)

    Do you have a way to generate a SHA1 hash of the IPSW that you downloaded (this is easy on a mac)? It's possible that you got an incomplete download and that is why pwnagetool won't accept it.

    Correct download links are here: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm

    Thank you! The 3.1.5 version worked fine. Wish I would have tried that earlier. NOW, the issue is that I have 3G network coverage but no EDGE coverage. My wife has the same phone, was JB in the states another way and unlocked another way too and her EDGE works fine. Might be a hardware issue...any ideas?

    The carrier you are using overseas may never have implemented edge (it's not that uncommon). There can be many reasons for this.
