    Default Spirit & Activation how I solved it

    Yesterday I went from blackra1n to spirit on my 3GS 32GB with fixed bootrom

    Having 2 AT&T simcards I feel confident everything would be smooth, it wasn't after restoring many times with both cards I was left with the iphone in an unactivated state theoretically not possible to run spirit, but I was able. Why I say unactivated state, because the waiting for activation popup keep appearing and I never saw the your phone is activated popup.

    Anyway, ran spirit, more on this later, let cydia do its thing and then I installed ultrasnow, rebooted the device only to see again the waiting for activation message and the phone not getting my carrier signal waiting forever with the searching message in the carrier name area.

    Restored many times, did the same with blacksnow, pushfix modified blacksnow and nothing, without activation phone would not work. So as I posted in the other thread I had an idea, why not do the JB with blackrain, copy the activation files, restore>spirit and copy these files back, it worked.

    Here is the detailed procedure:

    restore to 3.12 using your shsh and changing the hosts file per saurik instructions
    run blackrain
    let cydia do its thing
    restart cydia and install openssh
    once installed go to /var/roor/Library and copy the entire Lockdown folder to your computer keep in mind that files there have root owner, wheel group and 644 permissions, folders have 0755 permissions
    restore your phone again
    run spirit
    let cydia do its thing
    restart cydia and install openssh
    from your computer copy of /var/roor/Library/pair_records copy the file there to the phone in the same folder and check permissions/owner/group
    from your computer copy of /var/roor/Library/activation_records copy the file there to the phone in the same folder and check permissions/owner/group
    run ultrasnow/blacksnow/pushfix blacksnow (I used this one) and you are done, phone is activated and carrier signal is acquired.

    Im not sure why both my AT&T cards did not activate my phone, but using this procedure now I have untethered on my 3gs

    Regarding Spirit, I use win7 ultimate 32bits, even changing the compatibility to win 98, win xp or whatever it failed every time, I was able to finish the procedure on a native win xp sp3 machine

    hope this helps someone

    fixed bootrom ? Do you mean new bootrom ?

    Anyway, ran spirit, more on this later, let cydia do its thing and then I installed ultrasnow, rebooted the device only to see again the waiting for activation message and the phone not getting my carrier signal waiting forever with the searching message in the carrier name area.
    installed ultrasn0w ? You mean you have 04.26.08 Baseband ?
    Any iphone 3GS with this baseband is an old bootrom if I am not mistaken.

    Restored many times, did the same with blacksnow, pushfix modified blacksnow and nothing, without activation phone would not work. So as I posted in the other thread I had an idea, why not do the JB with blackrain, copy the activation files, restore>spirit and copy these files back, it worked.
    why blacksn0w now and ultrasn0w before ?

    Here is the detailed procedure:

    restore to 3.12 using your shsh and changing the hosts file per saurik instructions
    run blackrain
    let cydia do its thing
    restart cydia and install openssh
    once installed go to /var/roor/Library and copy the entire Lockdown folder to your computer keep in mind that files there have root owner, wheel group and 644 permissions, folders have 0755 permissions
    So basically you restore to 3.1.2 then your baseband is 05.11.07.
    Hence the ultrasn0w reference above is a mistake in typing ? I assume so.
    So here you basically let blackra1n hacktivate the device or do you use your AT&T SIM card to let itunes activate it first then run blackra1n ?

    restore your phone again
    run spirit
    let cydia do its thing
    restart cydia and install openssh
    from your computer copy of /var/roor/Library/pair_records copy the file there to the phone in the same folder and check permissions/owner/group
    from your computer copy of /var/roor/Library/activation_records copy the file there to the phone in the same folder and check permissions/owner/group
    run ultrasnow/blacksnow/pushfix blacksnow (I used this one) and you are done, phone is activated and carrier signal is acquired.
    I am extremely confused by the description.
    You restore the phone again ? .... Do you activate it or is it unactivated when you run spirit after restore. You can't run spirit if the phone is not activated.

    I'm not sure what you did and it does not make sense to me.
    Please describe the state of the phone before you run spirit.

    Im not sure why both my AT&T cards did not activate my phone, but using this procedure now I have untethered on my 3gs

    Regarding Spirit, I use win7 ultimate 32bits, even changing the compatibility to win 98, win xp or whatever it failed every time, I was able to finish the procedure on a native win xp sp3 machine

    hope this helps someone
    Basically, from what i gathered ... you were able to run spirit if the phone is not activated ?. The description of steps described above confuses me.

    I agree, it seems weird that all the instructions say that this is not possible yet you achieved this.

    yep some more explanation is needed because in the final steps you say:
    - restore again to 3.1.2
    - run spirit
    It would not work as spirit requires activation.

    At the end you mention you received phone is activated popup, So i guess this means you (forgot) or had an AT&T SIM and it activated.

    After I finished the restore with an ATT card inserted, itunes let me get to the apps main screen, but the waiting for activation message kept popping up, I don't know how to call this state, its clearly not activated because the popup is telling its not. In this state spirit runs.

    From this state I can run cydia, run the unlock but phone does not place calls.

    after I did the whole procedure described (unlock et al) and inserted my local carrier sim I received the phone is activated popup, not earlier.

    as I wrote, im not on ATT but my carrier (Claro Argentina) is an apple partner, my iphone comes from USA, so its married to ATT. Modem fw is 05.11.07 and phone model is MB717LL

    how do you call this state of semi activation?

    it is called activation. what you did is run spirit while the iphone was still activating, this means you have a legit SIM.

    I think he activated it with the ATT sim you get with the phone, ran everything and replaced the activation after with a fake to make his real card work. Did I get it right?

    no fake cards, these came from previous iphones (I had them all 2g,3g,3g16gb,3gs)

    if the phone is activated why I kept receiving the waiting for activation popup? well lets assume its activated but in the state it was, I left it around an hour (lunch time) and it didn't received the phone is activated popup, so phone was in an activation limbo

    To solve this I did what I posted.
