3G jailbreak & unlock help please
I bought a 3G used that had FW 4.1 (8B117) and modem FW 05.14.02 and locked to ATT. I am not an ATT customer, so I need it unlocked and jailbroken.
I'm guessing you guru's already determined I'm about clueless here but I'm hoping someone will help me out of my mess anyway.
I have read and read and read until my head is spinning. So many different apps and programs etc to use on these damn iphones it just confuses me bigtime.
I did see the warnings to stay away from FW 4.2.1 and BB 05.14.02 unless you need to unlock. But I need to unlock. So I gave it a shot.
I used redsn0w 0.9.6B5 and iphone1,2_42.1_8C148
I used the iclarify step by step instructions. I go through the steps until redsn0w displays "uploading ramdisk" with a progress bar. But it never goes any further. I've waited an hour but nothing.
On the phone it displays "downloading jailbreak data" but nothing progresses until the damn phone goes black...
I'm stuck and hoping someone here can tell me what I'm doing wrong.
Sorry for being long winded but wanted to explain.
I'm using itunes 10.1.0.56
iphone ver 4.1 before and 4.21 now (I think)
Log file at paste bin is 2010-12-05 15:28:08.290 [4168:e10]: restore librar
I appreciate anyone here that can be of assistance to me.
Thanks for your time
tinyumbrella will tell you the exact FW and BB your phone currently has installed.

That's all I can give you for now. Doing some thinking.

Below that it shows
Installed Firmware version as 4.2.1
Installed Baseband Version as 05.15.04-6.4_M3S2
Problem is I don't know what I can do with this info......
Thanks again, I appreciate the help
Are the 6 SHSH versions listed:

The important point is that you are at iOS 4.2.1 and you have a non-unlockable baseband. (You also had a non unlockable baseband before you updated)
The question is: do you want to take the risk and use 06.15 baseband from the iPad? It *mostly* works okay - but there is no way back.
According to reports, the most stable combination is iOS 4.1 and baseband 6.15, preferably with SAM enabling legitimate activation.
This is supposed to avoid GPS problems (with 4.2.1 and baseband 6.15) and battery life issues (due to not using legitmate activation)
Start with this guide:
iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone 3G Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1]
you can skip the custom boot logo options, they are not necessary
If you get stuck at "waiting for reboot", unplug and then plug in again the USB cable to iPhone - or try again with the iPhone connected via a USB hub.
DO NOT unplug the iPhone during any other step, it is only safe to disconnect during waiting for reboot or when the entire process is finished.
Then... once you are done - use this iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Using UltraSn0w to test the unlock (remember to disable 3G if you are using t-mobile in the US)
Once you have confirmed that the unlock works. Test GPS, if that doesn't work then you need to downgrade to 4.1 and repeat the jailbreak and unlock.
Finally, I recommend you use http://www.hackint0sh.org/f204/194306.htm - guide here iClarified - iPhone - How to Hactivation Your iPhone Using Subscriber Artificial Module (SAM) to re-activate legitimately.
