My 3gs is bricked after doing this... cant get out of reboot cycle... restore gives error 1601... redsnow justboot hangs at waiting to reboot.... Any worthwhile suggestions?

whats awesome is this is an untethered jailbreak already for 3gs 5.0, some of you probably are thinking "bulshit". But to prove this check out my videos http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_vl7Li8iYA http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rz3Jd5Lou-I

I tried to jailbreak to unlock my sim card. I have a 3gs old bothom, 5.0. I CANT jailbreak'it!!!!! Each time the same issue with all the versions of jailbreaks (5, 6 and now 7): "report failed" after the manipulation dfu. I don't know what to do... HELP!! ;)

you need to downgrade then to 4.1 (apple still signs the code signature for this version when saving shsh) or whatever version you know for sure you have shsh for. then you can jailbreak and flash the BB to 6.15 if needed. I will make a video of how to do this later today of how to downgrade using shsh w/6.15 installed (if you already have that installed). but really all you have to do is enter pwned dfu, restore with a stock ipsw (unless you have preserved BB then use ipsw with preserved BB), if 6.15 is installed you will get 1015, kick out of recovery with recboot.

I've got a 3GS w/5.13.04 BB on it. Just redsnowed to iOS5 with the preserved BB IPWS . Followed the tutorial steps, but now i'm unable to get Cydia (the app is not on it) so I can unlock it. Suggestions? thks

Restore again we/custom 5.0 and jailbreak without specifyiong .ipsw, I found that can actually tether an untetherable device. After that just do the ifile mod for mms and your iophone will be fully working (ifile mms mod is for 6.15 BB, gevey users and factory unlocked users 5.3.4 oree higher, works with 4.x and 5.x)
6italia0 - November 14, 2011 at 12:20pm
Meant to say 4.3.4
6italia0 - November 16, 2011 at 4:29pm
sometimes this happens and you need to specify the ipsw, but this may also tether your jailbreak for some odd reason. I had to do this to tether boot my iphone 4 a few times because I got the same error, but now I don't need to specify the ipsw anymore, all I have to do is "just boot" tethered

How to activate/hactivate iPhone 3GS with iOS 5.
6italia0 - October 26, 2011 at 2:14pm
put any live or dead at&t sim in and setup normally? I dont think you can hacktivate 5.0 but thats why I have like 100 old at&t cards lol

I'm running jailbroken and unlocked 5.0 on a 3gs, and everything is running great, though find my iphone doesn't seem to be able to locate my iphone (though location services works fine in every other app). Anyone else having this issue?

The android community is all about helping and making the newst firmware available to your phone no matter what the manufacturer says/wants. The iphone community is exactly the other way. Tethered jalibreak? Mac only? Come on. Do you how many people have macs? You guys insult (or obeys) steve jobs' smartness. By the way i'm selling my iphone 4. Just bought a galaxy s II. Thanks dev team for making my choice way easier. Hope you break (again).
6italia0 - October 28, 2011 at 7:59pm
sorry to hear that, it must suck to have to use such a limited device. the only modification available for you is to root it to make it do only what other android devices do, but no actual mods (with an exception to astro). and so what if the dev team releases mac only software? they release the windows version usually within days and tehered isnt really that bad either (im using my iphone 4 factory unlocked 5.0 tethered), its not the worst thing in the world. But I still keep my two 3gs 32gb as backup incase I dont want to use tethered 5.0. But I guess if your ok with horrible oversize and zoomed in display and limited options then I guess thats what works for you

ha ha ha . Most of these jakas nerds do what hey do just to impress some girl.

Anyone can confirm this is untethered for the iPhone 3GS old bootrom?
2fix - October 15, 2011 at 6:49pm
I can confirm it is untethered. Reboots just fine. I just jailbroke my 3GS iOS5 with old Bootrom.
Kruelspell - October 15, 2011 at 7:20pm
Yes it is untethered for old bootrom 3gs but when it runs out of battery restarts fine plugin it to the power cord but it starts with a yellow screen instead of the battery icon. Anyone else having this issue? Or do i have to jailbreak again? (i was in 4.3.3 jailbreak before updating)
6italia0 - October 28, 2011 at 8:01pm
confirmed: two 3gs 32gb 5.0 05.13.04 and 06.15.00 untethered works great and no issues at all. (still, however, prefer to use my factory unlocked iphone 4 5.0 tethered though).
