    Default Issues with unlock/activate

    So my Iphone 3gs crashed today running OS3. When I restored it went to OS4...oops.

    Problem is, I'm not in the USA right now, and can't find my ATT simcard. So now it's locked in emergency call mode with Itunes saying sim card not supported.

    I downloaded and installed "iPhone2,1_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw" - but that didn't work. How do I get past this so I can install ultrasnow...I guess?

    *Also, when I was on 3.1.2 I had -blackra1n installed on Iphone-, and unit carrier unlocked. This should in theory make this fixable, right?

    Thanks,
    Darren

    Now trying to install iPhone2_1_4.0_8A293_Custom_Restore_Activated.zip.0 0x

    but keep getting error 1600 from Itunes...

    Have now tried downgrading to 3.1.3...no luck there even in DFU mode. Ireb, Pwnage, custom ipsw files....nothing seems to work in all the tutorials I've tried. Tried 2 different Macs, and even installing from Windows XP in Parallels.

    Please tell me what I'm doing wrong!

    #1- I'm assuming that by 'carrier unlocked' you mean that you used ultrasn0w/blacksn0w/etc. on the phone in the past to unlock? Just want to be clear.

    #2- The iPhone 3GS requires an SHSH to downgrade. You can only downgrade if you have an SHSH for your phone + the version firmware you're downloading. Presently, Apple is only signing 4.0.2 and newer -- if you do not have an SHSH on file for a previous firmware and you are using an iPhone 3GS, iPt3G, or iPad, you can only upgrade to 4.0.2 at this point. If you'd like more info on this, an enthralling (and lengthy) read on the topic is available here: Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)

    #3- DFU will not help a 3GS bypass the SHSH requirement. On a 3GS, the DFU mode will only restore factory, stock firmware that is currently being signed by Apple. You cannot restore a custom firmware in DFU mode on a 3GS, period.

    So, without the SHSH on file, I think the best you can really do is restore 4.0.2 to your device from DFU mode (not custom firmware, etc., just a stock, factory 4.0.2). Doing so, however, will jail your phone and re-lock it (unless it's factory unlocked, in which case it will just jail it).

    Hope this sheds some light on the topic for you.

    Re #1 - used blackra1n

    So really if I need to carrier unlock I need to wait until there is a solution for 4.0.2....?

    In the mean time get my att sim card back in so I can at least activate and use apps/wifi etc?

    Thanks,

    D

    I misspoke yesterday -- Apple is still signing 4.0.1. Download Firmware Umbrella ASAP and store your 4.0.1 SHSH with Cydia, then downgrade to 4.0.1. You can then use Jailbreakme.com to jailbreak, use an AT&T SIM or Phonebook SIM to activate (install PushFix if you use the Phonebook SIM), then unlock with ultrasn0w.

    You'll want to do this ASAP -- no one knows when Apple will stop signing 4.0.1 and if they stop before you save your SHSH, you'll miss out.

    How about this one....I finally got my att sim card back. Once the phone was activated it was restored from a previous backup in Itunes....version 4.0.1 even though I had been on 4.0.2!!

    Used jailbreakme.com to jailbreak
    cydia now says I have blobs stored for 4.0 and 4.0.1
    ran ultrasnow...and am now running carrier unlocked.

    Trying to set up a new Iphone 4 running 4.0.1 for my father however and it is still pending shsh request from Cydia 24 hours later. Any ideas?

    Apple has stopped signing 4.0.1 SHSH requests.

    Cydia is not real-time with requesting SHSH requests for you. It can take days or even more than a week before your pending request is sent to Apple, often that is too late as by this time Apple has stopped signing the iOS version you requested a SHSH for.


    Use TinyUmbrella if you want a SHSH blob straight away.
