Discuss Howto: restore iPhone 3G, 3GS running 6.15.00 BB at the Ultrasn0w (3G(S)/iPhone 4 unlock) - Hackint0sh.org; I also have tried almost every recommendation on page one of this thread, I'm still ...
I also have tried almost every recommendation on page one of this thread, I'm still in brick-mode
ok I managed to get it to restore to 4.1 using itunes and tiny umbrella, it is not bricked anymore but is at the "insert sim" to activate/emergency only mode. I inserted an att sim(non active) and no guise.
Now I can't get it into dfu mode or my computer to acknowledge the usb port so that I can restore through iTunes or redsn0w
How did you manage to get it to restore then? That uses the same drivers / USB port you are now saying doesn't work.

Exactly what was boggling me so I asked for help, I did a lot of reading online through forums and apples help sites and decided to try rebooting my computer.
That worked, for some reason I think after a whole day of fiddling with it the memory maxed out on my PC.
But I asked because it( iTunes and my pc) recognized a device in dfu and recovery everytime except for when I finally got it to restore so I was like "wtf ".
I appreciate the reply+ 1 for this site.
I removed cydia from iphone 3gs 4.2.1. because it said cydia older version or duplicate file. Now I can't reinstall cydia back. I did re-jailbreak 3 times but I can't get cydia back on my iphone. please help
Thanks a lot
I know this is kind of an old thread but I am still hoping for some help here. This is my problem - if you need more details, please ask.
System - Iphone 3G, 4.2.1, originally on BB 5.15 updated to 6.1.5 during jailbreak/unlock.
What I tried to do - jailbreak/unlock the phone using redsn0w 0.9.6rc16 and ultrasn0w 1.2.7 using procedure on this website.
How to unlock iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS with ultrasn0w
I was able to jailbreak and install Cydia but didnt have Wifi on the iphone so used a different method to put the ultrasn0w .deb files in Cydia AutoInstall folder using iphone explorer. Problem was phone didnt get unlocked and ultrasn0w got deleted after every iphone reboot.
This is where the problems started:
I thought I messed up some steps so decided to restart the process - first one being resotring the phone through iTunes using the 4.2.1 IPSW file (I know, BIG MISTAKE but it is all in hindsight)
Anyway, as I now know, this sticks the phone in recovery mode and I either have the apple logo in center of screen or the itunes with USB logo.
How can I get back to using the phone (and then hopefully successfully unlocking it)?
I saw some answers which need downgrading to 4.1 and then using Tinyumbrella but I am not familiar with both these steps. Can you guys please help?
I would really appreciate it!
