Im not sure why, but in my three years of JB, I have never experienced this issue. On my 3gs (working) im ruinnng 4.3.1 jb and unlocked, w/ bb 6.15.00. and on my second iphone 3g (wont connect o service) its ruinnng 4.1, the jb worked flawlessly, and had to upgrade the baseband to 6.15.00 to set it for an unlock, after installing ultrasn0w, it cannot seem to find/connect to my service provider (tmobile). Even toggled as airplane mode and still nothing, any ideas?

HELP--- I recently purchased an Iphone with firmware 2.0.1. I used WinPwn to unlock and jailbreak. I installed my sim card and I am able to send/recieve calls. Heres the PROBLEM that I need HELP on. I want to install the tzone hack so I can use Edge. I took my Iphone to an area with free Wi-fi access so I could load cydia. I can see that I have a good Wi-Fi connection but cydia doesn't load. I can see it comes up with an error then timesout. Can someone please give advice or direct.

Well i found this..... Here is a working winpwn 2.0 guide updated to include 2.0.1 firmware. Here is what you need: 1) Winpwn or newer. 2) iTunes 7.7 or newer. 3) Boot images for 3.9 and 4.6. 4) The proper restore file. Get your 2g restore image or 3g restore image. Let’s get started. Step 1: Install winpwn, iTunes, and extract your restore images and bootloaders to your desktop. Note: if you have a previous copy of winpwn installed, uninstall it before installing the new one. Step 2: Connect your iPhone to your PC and load up winpwn. You will see this screen: Step 3: Winpwn will not allow you to do anything without selecting a firmware image. So, click “Browse .ipsw” button and select your firmware image from your desktop. Note: winpwn will determine if you have an iPod, an iPhone 3g, or an iPhone 2g based off the firmware image you select and downloaded. So make sure you got the correct image. 2g and 3g iPhones have different firmwares! Step 4: Next, we need to build the iPhone software image. Click “IPSW Builder” and you will be presented with some screens. Start on the Applications tab. On this screen you must select “Install Cydia”. If you need youtube patched then select also “YouTube activation fix”. You do not need to select this if you have a contract carrier such as AT&T. As far as installer goes, feel fee to select it if you want. But do not select installer instead of Cydia. Cydia has all the apps. Installer does not and installer is still very beta as of August 9, 2008 and contains virtually no packages to install. If you select installer, also select Cydia. Step 5: Click the custom images tab. Here you can select custom boot images if you care to. This is optional. Step 6: Click the custom payload tab. Here you can select some payloads in .tar format. At this time there are a couple built in payloads so there is nothing to do here. If you make your own payloads for packages you can select them here. So we are skipping this screen. Step 7: Click Advanced tab. This is a critical tab. If you have a contract carrier such as AT&T you do not need to unlock. So you must make sure everything is unchecked here. Again, if you have a contract carrier, select nothing here! If you do not have a contract carrier, you will need to use this to configure activation and unlocking. Check activate phone, Enable Baseband Update, Unlock Baseband, Autodelete Bootneuter.app. Click the two bootloader file buttons and browse for your 3.9 and 4.6 firmware we downloaded at the start of this guide. Your finished screen needs to look something like this: Note: If you are activating here by checking the “activate iphone” you should also patch youtube on the first applications screen. Step 8: Partition resizer. Here is the partition resizer screen. With the current version fo Winpwn, move this to 550 mb. The extra packages will fill the root partition before Cydia gets to run and move things about. Do not make it any larger though because Cydia moves your apps around properly to the larger partition so if you resize this larger here you are just losing space. Step 9: Build the custom IPSW. Click “Build .ipsw” at the bottom of the window. Note: save your file to some place sensible so you can find it. The default location is going to be hard to find. Try your documents or your desktop. Winpwn will crank away and finally you will see the success box: Step 10: Note: if you are currently pwned, (phone boots with custom logo still) you can skip to step 12 and restore with the image you just made. Doing this step will not hurt but is not required for you. Back to the main screen, select iPwner. This will ask you to select your custom firmware we just built in step 8. So select that file. You will get a success message and you are done with winpwn! Step 11: Get your phone into DFU mode. You cannot use any tools to do this. It must be hardware DFU mode only done by pressing the buttons on your device. Use my guide here for the steps. This works on every device so keep trying if you are having problems. Step 12: While in DFU mode, load iTunes 7.7, and restore using shift-restore. Load the custom firmware image we made. And after about 10-15 minutes you are done. If you are having problems with iTunes or getting errors consult my restore guide. Note: if your device was already pwned and you are just upgrading, you do not need DFU mode. Normal recovery mode may work fine. You should try either one and if you have problems try the other. Troubleshooting: If you are getting errors in iTunes less than 20 you are not in DFU mode. Refer to my DFU guide. If you are getting 160x errors (1600, 1601, 1602, 1604) you may have used the wrong firmware image for your device. Make sure you got the correct image for your 2g or 3g phone. They are not the same. For help on iTunes errors refer to my restore guide. If you are using winpwn version earlier than you may see 160x errors. If the last tab only lets you select activate, (step 7) you probably loaded the 3g firmware image. iPhone 3g cannot be unlocked at this time. If you have 2g, you loaded the wrong firmware image to start. If you have no signal on a contract carrier (AT&T for example), you probably activated but did not unlock (checked the activate box on step 7). If you do not have a contract carrier, you need to unlock. Redo the steps again making sure not to make this mistake. If your mail crashes after you sync your backup, use BossPrefs, more, fix user dir permissions. If iTunes will not stop asking you if you want to restore your backup, see this.

Hi Guys, it worked perfectly. Make sure you have winpwn installed and select NO WIPE and set 550MB (not default 500). I also used Itunes 7.7 not 7.7.1.

When willl a unlock 3G iphone solution be available, pleaseeeeeeeeeeeee ?????????

I ought to say, as a good deal as I enjoyed rneidag what you had to say, I couldnt aid but lose interest soon after a whilst. Its as should you had a amazing grasp on the topic matter, but you forgot to incorporate your readers. Possibly you should consider this from far far more than one angle. Or possibly you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its much better in case you consider what other people may possibly have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction towards the subject. Think about adjusting your personal believed approach and giving others who may read this the benefit with the doubt

hi everyone. i have a question. sinds three days i try to upgrade my iphone and nothing i try everything allready really…. but my question is if i upgrade just normally without any winpwn’s just thru itunes (just break the wall i can not cross) ami be able to unlock my iphone after that? using some maybe other program?
poda - August 11, 2008 at 11:30am
I downloaded the winpwn (upgraded from ) after my firmware 2.0 update. One thing to note is to uninstall previous version & then do a restart computer..this step is important otherwise ipsw doesnt get built. Now I updated to firmware 2.0.1 & am on tmobile & also installed the bigboss tzones hack to get tmobile edge for $6/month...Its all cool. I did not add the installer as I wasnt sure what it exactly was....did install cydia. Not sure what is new for 2.0.1 as I wasnt seeing as much bugs in 2.0 as well...so anyways..thanks a lot guys...best of all...all this is free.
Valdicleide - June 9, 2012 at 2:59am
DanIs your phone a 3GS? Does it have the black screen with White apple logo?Have you just ilteanlsd something from cydia and been asked to "restart springboard"?If so don't worry, mine does this.Here's how I fix it.Press and hold powerHold homeAs soon as the screen goes blank let go of both buttons, if you don't the phone will end up in DFU mode forcing the 3.1 update.Turn your phone back on, you may need to do this 2 or 3 times, leave it for about 5 mins each time.The reason is, you prob have a lot of stuff ilteanlsd, and it can take a while to complete.
