Help!!!! Hi folks, I had my iPhone 3G firmware 3.1.3 jail broken with Pwnage Tool, but for some reason I did not get connection to my cell phone provider, so I tried to unlock with blacksnow according to your instructions. For some reason in step 12 the phone got stuck and said \"loading Cydia\", but did not continue, so I left it alone and after a while it seemed to automatically reboot, but got stuck with the \"pineapple\" symbol. It does not continue to load and does not react to any button anymore. I can reboot with the same result holding on/off and home buttons, but nothing else. When I connect it to the computer iTunes does not recognize the phone and the phone does not react being connected in any way. Help! What went wrong and more important: How can I fix it? please Helppp Best regards,

same happened to my iphone... restored to factory settings using firmware 3.1.2. keep the home and power buttons pressed and plug in the phone, do not release until itunes tells you that there\'s a phone to be reset... then just go on with selecting the firmware and restore the phone... after having firmware 3.1.2 on it, just install your unlock as explained above and it works fine...

I have the same problem. Jailbreaking goes very smooth. Unlocking appears to run normal but right as it finishes, it says \"reloading data\" and eventually locks up. I have tried this numerous times and ways but no luck.

Mine is doing that as well, did anyone find a way to fix this problem??

there are only 2 option for u....1 is restored the phone and take it to apple store if you still have warranty..2 is keep this phone and use it as is because if you restore it the wifi is dead and you can\'t not download anything without wifi..suck..same happened to me...this is up to u...let me know if you restored and the wifi work again.
vanessa - February 25, 2010 at 3:23pm
i dnt have warranty, got the firmware and found this unlock without wifi. didnt help with jump starting the wifi bar.. so still the same prblem.. no wifi.. yup!sucks big tym!

Try network reset before restoring it will solve your issue. (from the setting, general, reset..) hope this helps.
vanessa - February 26, 2010 at 4:50pm
