thx for the att unlocking info i find it really useful thx both tom and david
david - April 25, 2013 at 3:42pm
I know this article is not about unlocking the carrier, but I want to tell people att-iphone-unlockcom is worthless, took them 5 weeks, and after I restart my phone, it's locked again. Just so you folks know, be careful while picking unlocking sites.

For the people who wants to unlock any ATT phones, go google attiphoneunlocking, they unlock any model and firmware. I did mine there.

I've completed this process twice now on my iPhone 3gs with 5.1.1 and I get to the last screen, see a half eaten pineapple on my phone, and then my phone goes to my lock screen. After I unlock it everything is exactly the same and Cydia has not been installed (I searched for it manually and with search bar.) What am I doing wrong??!

I'm currently on 4.2.1 and want to update to 5.1.1. Can I downgrade if I'm not happy with it?
samra - January 6, 2013 at 9:35am
also, do we proceed to step 3 after the restore is complete or alongside?
samra - January 6, 2013 at 9:17am
in step two, itunes shows a message saying an unknown error occured and therefore my phone could be restored? help please!
Lloydb - January 10, 2013 at 9:43am
Hey Samra, did you manage to find a fix for this problem? I am also doing a restore like the tutorial says and I get that same message. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
ammartq - January 11, 2013 at 10:28am
Same issue here. "An unknown error occurred (3194)." Please let me know if you find the solution. Thanks.

My iPhone 3gs was jailbroken. I believe that it was on 4.1.1. I upgraded the OS using itunes to iOS 6.1.X, the latest one available. post the new iOS install, the phone went in configure mode and then came to activation, where it neither connected to the activation server nor accepted the SIM network. I have been trying to jailbreak this phone ever since. I got redsn0w_win_0.9.15b1 and tried to jailbreak it, but following the missing keys error, i downloaded the iPhone2,1_6.0_10A403_Restore.ipsw. I tried to first fix in recovery mode, then jailbreak - cydia installing, but nothing seems to work, I get back to configure iphone screen. Need help
msvb - December 8, 2012 at 4:58pm
My iPhone 3GS is already on Jailbreak with Cydia has already been installed. But right now my iPhone is so slow and battery also drains so fast. I remember I jailbroke it using RedSnow some package. It's currently on Version 4.3.3 (8J2) and Modem Firmware 06.15.00. Is there a updated iOS jailbreak available for my iPhone 3GS? Which is the most recent jailbreak available for 3GS? If it can be updated, could someone advise me the steps or correct links where I can look into? Will my iPhone get into brick if I erase all my contents and upgrade into a recent iOS? Later can I jailbreak? Please help me.

Salman - November 18, 2012 at 7:50pm

Salman - November 18, 2012 at 7:42pm
Mr.Naveen.. i tried the way u said. my 3gs is in new bootroom. so an error msg is displaying like invalid blobs/device+ios combination. so please tel me next procedure. i tried to upgrade from 4.1 to 5.1.1 Thanks
NAVEEN - November 19, 2012 at 6:50pm
You might have downloaded the wrong version of ios, for iphone 3gs it should be iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206. First save the ssh blobs for ur iphone using tiny umbrella. You should choose the exact ssh blob suitable to ios 5.1.1.

Hi ! When I was updating my iPhone 3 , I get error 2003 , and now phone is stuck in DFU mode . Any solutions ? Thanks .
NAVEEN - November 18, 2012 at 6:27am
Keep pressed home and power button for few seconds, phone will come out from dfu mode, or use exit rrecovery from tiny umbrella
Salman - November 8, 2012 at 8:50pm
Is upgrade 5.1.1 possible now.. Some error msg showing. Early solution appreciated
NAVEEN NAGIREDDY - November 10, 2012 at 9:49am
iphone 3gs with newbootrom is jailbreakable on ios 5.1.1 with snowbreeze in ifatih mode, you can avoid errors by using iREB to keep mobile in DFU mode before restoring cutom os with itunes.
EPcy - November 6, 2012 at 9:01pm
Is this teathered or unteathered? Also, will it upgrade my baseband because I would like to keep it since I need to unlock it later. Pls if any one knows, to tell me before I start the jailbrake. Usually these things are stated in the tutorial but it seems they left it out.
Claudia - November 2, 2012 at 8:14pm
"the iPhone "Claudia's iPhone" could not be restored because firmware file is not compatible" that's what my says and i can't go any further
eko - November 1, 2012 at 12:34am

I am jailbreaking an at&t iphone and wanting to connect to veirzon. once i complete this jailbreak will i be able to put that phone on my verizon account?
kalincj - September 29, 2012 at 11:00pm
I have a 3GS and I was on 5.0, and I have been trying to upgrade to 5.1.1 for the past 4 hours. I just updated to iTunes 10.7, and whenever I try to update I get the 3194 error. Is this because I updated to iTunes 10.7? I don't know how to solve this (my host file is okay, so that is not the problem). Thanks

You can download manually your iphone firmware which version you want from this site,after downloading the firmware..for installing in your phone you have to open itunes whichever you are using and then click on restore option in your iphone profile by pressing shift/ctrl button... now you'll be able to install your software on your iphone....
Javier - September 30, 2012 at 8:39pm
I have the same issue and already tried restoring from itunes using downloaded ipsw from iClarified. Same error 3191.

ws - June 8, 2012 at 12:59pm
why can't I get this to work. My jailbroken iphone 3gs (used w/T-Mobile) was accidentally updated to the latest apple version. Ive used redsnow and ten also tried pwnage on a mac with no luck. So I moved the operation to an XP system and downloaded redsn0w_win_0.9.12b2 with iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore ipsw... restored it fine. Launched the redsn0w, DFU fine.. did it's thing.. relaunched and where it says hit 'Just Boot' I did that and it seem to go through the whole process again. End result is version 5.1.1 (9B206) is installed but it wont read my t-mobile sim -grrrr,, any help would be greatly appreciated.
JADe - May 22, 2012 at 1:23am
Does this work on 3GS running 5.1 with modem firmware 05.16.05? One other article I read said if the phone was manufactured after the 28th week of 2011 it won't work to jailbreak/unlock yet. Does this work in that case now? I really need my iPhone unlocked.

If you select the latest ver. of red sn0w, you can jailbreak untethered. Just try and see, but the baseband will change. GOOD LUCK! It's works!

How to downgrade iPhone 4 baseband from 04.11.08 to 04.10.01
Marty - June 15, 2012 at 5:56am
I have been doing JB runs for a number of years now and have never encountered any issues... But for some reason, I am finally stumped! I have an old 3GS new bootrom with iPad bb. It used to be my main device but after getting a 4s it's just a backup. But anyway, I wanted to jailbreak it and followed the usual but this time, iTunes keeps giving me an error " Thr iPhone cannot be restored at this time because the iPhone software update server could not be contacted or it is temporarily unavailable". I've never encountered this before. Any ideas how to get it to restore to the custom ipsw? Its so strange. I have all the versions of redsn0w available as well as TU. I kept them all in case I needed them. I also have all my SH Blobs saved with Cydia as well as on my computer starting back from 4.0.1 or something. Any help would be most appreciated. Thanks.

After 5.1 jailbreak on 3gs. keep going back to set up. nothing else. keep asking to connect to itunes. please help
Long - May 10, 2012 at 1:58am
hi guy!! I also encountered to this issue. Yet now I've already fixed it. Just follow my instruction you will have ios 5.1 too. 1. restore your iphone with firmware 5.1. then it will appear CONNECT YOUR IPHONE TO ITUNE RESTORE again. 2. No need to care about it, just go to Redsnow and then jailbreak it. 3. your phone will be blank again after your already jailbreak it. 4. just go to Redsnow again. This time all you need is go to EXTRA and JUST BOOTH. 5. your iphone will be updated to ios 5.1. Enjoy with your new ios. (^_^)
