Can't activate my Iphone 3GS after update from 5.1 to 6.1(baseband?)

Can't activate my Iphone 3GS after update from 5.1 to 6.1(baseband?)

Posted February 4, 2013 at 10:17pm by rlisand · 12077 views
I've got this iphone 3gs from a friend a year ago(German). I jailbreaked the Iphone at that time I was with him. and installed ultrasn0w. But this time I forgot that I need a jailbreak to use the phone and to activate it through Itunes. Now I have a Iphone 3gs that can't be activated trough Itunes and because of that I can't jailbreak it because Evasi0n says I need to activate it... On the internet there are not many threads that can help me. HELP!

Did u update it directly from iTunes without using TinyUmbrella? If yes then possibly your baseband has been updated. The only solution left is getting it unlocked from Apple (IMEI unlocking).

I nailed it @gamming

- Use sn0wbreeze to create a custom ipsw and use the hacktivate
Then restore in dfu mode in iTunes
When restore phone will be jailbroken on 6.1
Then load cydia and install evasion update
Then install ultrasn0n job done

The only thing I have left is my baseband that I lost ( Dutch vodafone)
