1. Borrow any iPhone official carrier in your country (i use O2 in UK) 2. Restrore your iPhone with simcard O2 inserted 3. When iTunes asks about account setting, create a new account. Don't use backup'ed account 4. Let Apple activates your iPhone and this will register a new certificate into your iPhone 5. Install IM app (if you use app like Ping! or BuzzMe, you need to DELETE your ID and create a new one (because the Ping!/BuzzMe servers have registered your old certificate, not the new one) 6. Return the simcard to your friend and use your unallowed simcard and unlock like normal 7. Done! happy pushing!

I agree with Ben. This hack doesn't work. After a full day's fiddling about, using a legit SIM card (O2 here in the UK) the only way I've found to get Push working on my 3.0 iPhone 2G is to restore it properly using Apple's .ipsw file, then jailbreak using blackra1n. I haven't managed to get Push working reliably on the phone if I jailbreaked it using Pwnage Tool.

I installed this as my GPS was playing up and lost YouTube function & kept saying to connect to iTunes to allow push notifications. I've just deleted it and YouTube works again and the pop up has gone.

This really needs to be removed from iClarified. This will not work for you and I will explain why without going into massive detail. This fix is nothing more than one iphone's certs/keys being shared by thousands of people. This is why it works randomly and you can get weird messages from other people. Sharing this with thousands of people are pointless and this should be removed. Every iphone and ipod needs it's own cert to have your push notifications to go to you and no one else. These push certs are generated by itunes when you activate your iphone through itunes the legit why. When you hacktivate you are not contacting the APNs (Apple Push Notification Service) servers to generate these unique keys. So if you want push to work on your jailbroken iphone you will even have to: 1. Steal/copy these certs from an ipod that was activated in itunes the normal way 2. Activate your iphone with a legit AT&T sim card to go through activation (and NOT Hactivation) to have the Apple push servers generate your unique keys/certs 3. Go to www.pushfix.info to get your own unique certs. My only option was number 3 since 1 and 2 were not an option for me. The author of the site found a way to access the Apple push servers manually to generate push certs. He has instructions how to SSH into your phone to put them on there. I did so and push works flawlessly for me and I get my own push notifications and no one else's. Unless you can figure out how to access the Apple push servers on your own to generate keys then these 3 are your ONLY options. Works like a charm will all my push apps and I love push!
