Hello Dev team, Its been so quiet lately, I have been checking on this website many time each day, hopefully that the Pwanege tool would com out, so that I can full fill my duty, j/b and unlock my 3GS that have original firmware 3.1.2. But it seems thatt my hope is fading away. I might just put that damn phone on Greglist, get a Nokia, and No more apple product.

I follow your instructions on unlocking the 3Gs, but in the left corner were the carrier letters ex:(ATT) go it only has very little lines which you can barely see. I put a working ATT sim card that I use it and the phone worked fine and but now is not working after unlocking it. Can you someone help? Thanks!!!

At step 13, it tells me that "no data....could activate", basically that the iphone lost the ATT signal. Is this normal? Did my unlock still work? thx,

I went all the way through (donwngraded to 3.0) jailbroke it and installed with cydia. When I put another sim it still does not recognize it. I mean, I have the full menu but i tunes says I have thr wrong sim and I can´t get a signal... any way to fix this? Thanks.

hi everyone, Got my new iphone 3GS (no contract )from states, as i have said i stay in saudi arabia. I have jailbreaken the phone using the redsn0w and tried to install ultrasn0w but cydia keep giving me this error message of size mismatch. after umpteen number of tries installed purplesn0w for unlocking the iphone and it got installed. But the problem is that i have inserted my sawa (stc) sim in the iphone but the network is not there, is there something i have missed or overlooked, any suggestions or comments are welcome. Appreciate your efforts in advance., Thanks for looking at it. p.s. forgot to mention that before jailbreaking i have added some songs from itunes on it, later while jailbreaking kept the at&t sim, not much sure about which sim should be present whether the one i want to use or the at&t one. it looks in the cydia that purplesn0w has been installed but i am unable to get the network signal. Regards Ridhwan

Why don't you try jailbraking using redsnow and ultrasnow. in mine (3gs att) worked perfectly. I heard that purplesnow doesnt work so I didnt try it.

Geohot, if you are reading this, could you reply to the below problems please and why peope experience them? It sounds to me that your "thing" doesn't work at all?
Nash - July 15, 2009 at 12:55pm
Can someone help please? After doing the entire procedure and when I rebooted the phone keeps cycling with apple logo and would not power up.
Krasi - July 17, 2009 at 6:00am
I read in the other posts for Ultrasn0w to try and restore I phone from scratch with Itunes.
Nash - July 15, 2009 at 12:38pm
Something went wrong. My phone would power up again. I went through the whole process, and when I rebooted the phone is going nowhere.Anyone has any suggestions? Thanks
kobe - July 14, 2009 at 5:55pm
I try but it doesn't work. Still wait for your work done Geohot.
sarvary70 - July 14, 2009 at 1:13pm
this procedure doesn't work at all don't bother at all, Just use ultrasn0w which is useful and great job by iphone dev team!!!!
ptl - July 14, 2009 at 5:49am

hoc doan

The iphone 3GS does not have signal. Wifi is ok. Make it better Geohot
Maart - July 30, 2009 at 2:13pm
This version doesnt work for phones that aren't hackitivated, dude. RTFM
iamse7en - July 14, 2009 at 2:14am
So I wonder if this will work well for a regular 3G phone, like ultrasn0w works for both. I also assume the same issues with Push notification will persist.
