hi, everything worked until the last step... "Select Just boot from the Extras menu to boot tethered and follow the instructions to put your device into DFU mode again for boot." for some reason it won't work, and idk why.

I haven't fixed it. I did find an article that said phones that have my particular firmware and version cannot be jailbroken. But, as I have time I'll keep trying. If you have any success please let me know. Don

ok fellas all of you did the jail break right but u have to again jailbreak but only in the just boot option , after that it should be in safe mode the cariier unlock only works in safe mode via battery dead or youi turn it off youll hVE TO HOOK IT UP TO REDSNOW again hit only just boot cydia works and internet works only in safe mode with carrier unlocked using i believe ultrasnow within cydia also if u have ipad baseband files backed up you can impolrt them using this version of redsnow ive done it on several devices ipod 4 iphone3gs and and ipad so that seems to be the fix sucks if u have crap battery life as is

My iPhone bricked on Step 6. After entering recovery mode instead of DFU mode my phone no longer turns on and is not recognized in itunes.

ez. 10 seconds is too long. Just let go of the power button after 7 or 8 seconds instead to avoid recovery mode. Also, the phone doesn't have to be off. In fact, it only worked when I left it on. Go figure, bad instructions but amazing program. Thank you iPhone Dev Team!

I had 3Gs jailbroken with iOS 4.1, which was working fine. Tried upgrade to iOS 6.0.1 by: 1. Restore to 'iPhone2,1_6.0.1_10A523_Restore' using iTune 10.7 2. Choosing the 'iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore' IPSW, jailbreak using 'redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3'. 3. Again using 'iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore' did just boot tethered. 4. Cydia shows 6.0.1 No error with above steps, but didn't get service. Then based on the suggestion, I tired: 5. Installed Ultrasn0w Fixer. Still no luck, then tried: 6. Jailbreak again to Downgrade to iPad Baseband. 7. Using 'iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore' did just boot tethered. 8. Re-install Ultrasn0w Fixer. Same.. No service still.. Please help -Jeevs

After getting error while downgrading to 5.1.1, I tried following: 1. Downgraded to iOS 4.1 with BB 6.15 2. Jailbreak using redsn0W No luck, then manually installed 'utrasn0w' using cydia..Got into same issue as 'No service'. 3. Downgraded the BB (to 5.13.04) using 4.1 IPSW by redsn0w.. After that got my iPhone working good.. With iOS 4.1 and BB 5.13.04, again tried upgrading to 5.1.1 by: 1. Restore to 5.1.1 using iTune 10.7, but got 3149 error. The video shared by you indicate that I should be having "GOOD" shsh to resolve this issue (by using tinyumbrella). But as mention the steps, my shsh doesn't look good. Please tell me the safer way to upgrade to 5.1.1?

Nope my 3GS upgrade to IOS 6.0.1 and jailbreak is just not working out Firstly my phone has become so unreceptive to my touch, requiring few strokes before it works Secondly and more importantly, my Cydia crashes, in that it closes instantly the moment I open it or any other Cydia downloaded app. Also some of the Cydia apps causes the phone to go into SafeMode. After I restart, the earlier case of crashing happens I had to countless time reinstall Cydia with iBooty I figure 3GS is just not cutout for IOS 6. Can anyone suggest the best OS downgrade for 3GS? AND how I would go about it step by step? Man this has been one painful lesson... don't fix it if it ain't broke

I must agree with u about not fixing it if it aint broke...i had to upgrade mine because my phone crashed and had to restore. So, 6.0.1 it is...fortunately, until today my phone is doing just fine with 6.0.1...cant wait for iphone5 to be launched here in Malaysia. Or maybe u can try to downgrade to older version? For me, 4.3 was good.

I have tried jailbreaking and am going round in circles Mistake no 1 - I upgraded to OS 6.0.1 through itunes and find out some problems . Then I try to do what is advise here and am so confused as to what is to be done as I get a hanging reboot or the same error message Can someone give me a step by step to :- 1) reinstall cydia on my now 6.0.1 iphone3gs 2) restore my apps from my itunes Major question here is when is iTunes supposed to be open during all these processes?

Almostdesperate, thanks for your link However at this stage I have become desperate & frustrated & tired. Not only did I try redsnow, I also tried snowbreeze..... After hrs on the pc, still no Cydia, and half my apps can't get loaded. I miss the Cydia apps more Wonder whether IOS 6 is worth the trouble. Already it seems to stutter along the way. Should have stayed with my 4.0.1 and saved all this bother Need to sleep on it tonite and see if I want to go through this again tomorrow. This time I think I want to downgrade to maybe pre OS 5 Any suggestions? Maybe 4.3?
