I followed these instructions carefully and I was in a neverending reboot. I ssh'd back in and erased what I did. I've been able to use my iphone, but have somehow sms messaging no longer works. When I click on messaging the screen where there should be a list of my old messages shows up blank and launches a new message for me to send then it closes. I have not been able to get or send my sms messages since. Please someone have a fix to this or tell me which command to use to get my sms messaging back to normal. I've restored like 5 times, I tried ultrasn0w and blacksn0w to unlock. I even downgraded back to 3.1 without any luck. iphone 3g 8gb jb: pwnage ul:blacksn0w Thanks in advance!

iphone crash after folllowing these tutorials to enable tethering!! I am in big trouble with my iphone 3GS, jailbroken with Blackra1n, firmware 3.1.2 and baseband 05.11.07. I am using the last itunes (9.0.2) My goal was to to enable tethering on my iphone. I first installed openSSH by following this tutorial: Then I installed Fugu with this tutorial : At this time I reboot the iphone and everything was fine. Then I finally followed this tutorial to enable tethering : I think I did not rebot at this time. To install my carrier settings I used this website : I installed this carrier settings « Bouygues Telecom France v6.3 » : After all this I restarted my iphone and it never restart again ! It always freeze on the apple logo and restart as itself. Its a neverending reboot loop. I try the recovering and hard recovering with itunes. Itunes can see the iphone but when it start the recover it freeze with an empty status bar on the iphone. Then itunes stop and show « waiting for iphone error 9 ». What can I do to save my iphone ! Please help and email me at

Ugh! I should've checked here before doing this! Mine is in a neverending reboot as well. Anyone know a fix to this?

Thanks for clarifying tutorials. This tethering thing works like a charm.

Since the is no Fugu fo Windows users, use NetDragon iPhone PC Suite to do file transfer, permission change and renaming of files. For patching and SHA1 compare, I used Terminal application on OS X.

Too cool - all works fine (posting this using tethering now). Thanks for another easy to follow and handy tutorial!

This is too much work. I just install RockID app, then open RockID to download 3G tethering. Then, go setting--> general--> network. Tethering ready
