If yes, then you will need the original carrier's simcard or a phonebook simcard to get past the 'Emergency Calls' screen & to the Home Screen. [It's called activating your iphone before you jailbreak+unlock it]
If no, then try restoring OS 4.0.1 via itunes again.
In order to activate your iphone you will need the original carrier's sim card or a phonebook sim card.
If you can't get your hands on either of the sims then I would suggest you to not updagrade your firmware till a hacktivation software is out [eg. Pwnage Tool/sno0wbreeze/redsn0w]
Yes... Unlock+Jailbreak possible.
Hope you already have an ACTIVATED [meaning you can access the home screen] iphone on firmware 4.0 or 4.0.1
Once your phone is activated, connect to jailbreakme.com through your iphone's safari web browser [wireless connection required]... Follow the instructions & you'll have Cydia on your Home screen
Next, open Cydiia, add the source [repo666.ultrasn0w.com] & download ultrasn0w 1.0-1 from the packages & you'll have an unlocked & jailbroken iphone.
1. Old Bootrom [iBoot 359.3] mid-sept 2009 model
2. Jailbroken & unlocked on 3.1.2 with earlier version of pwnage tool
3. No SHSH Blobs stored for 3.1.2/3.1.3 :(
4. Model: MC135LL
I somewhere read that pwnage tool 4.01 does not work for MC models of 3GS. Is that true? (the Pwnage Tool 4.01 info doesn't mention anything about MC/non-MC compatibility under the 3GS section)
I just have one shot at this. I don't want to mess this up. I can't use 'jailbreakme' cuz I won't be able to activate my phone once I restore to the official iOS4.0.1... Am living outside of the United States... unfortunately no AT&T or Phonebook SIMs are available in my country :(
Can anyone please help... I have a 3GS old bootrom on 3.1.2. How do I activate my 3GS when restored to official OS4? I don't think I'll be able to move on with the jailbreaking via safari unless I activate it...
The phonebook SIM cards are not available in my country...
