    connect ur iphone to itunes, put in DFU mode (google DFU mode) and then the itunes will recognise ur iphone, so that u can perform a complete restore. U can then repeat the jailbrek process which will help u to overcome the issues.

    I have an already jailbroken/unlocked iphone 3g old bootrom 3.1.2 can I use this service if I update to 4.0 if I first restore to factory settings first?

    Does activated mean on a network or just able to turn the phone on and connect to itunes?

    Finally, my iphone 3gs is jailbroken and unlocked. I have tried Snowbreeze, Spirit and Redsnow, but none of them work. It took me less than 5 minutes to Jailbreak with Jailbreakme. Then I unlocked it with Ultrasnow in Cydia. Now, I have IOS 4.0.1 on my Iphone. Thank you for the great work guys.

    thanks for your guide!

    does it change any of the performance problems with the 3g though? wouldn’t like to jailbreak and then realize that it is even slower than under 4.0.1 without jailbreak.

    thanks, peter

    I have a new iphone 4 fromAT&t. It has not been activated but has been hooked to itunes and will connect to internet by wifi. Can i jailbreak it or will I need to activate it with AT&t first?

  13. Hazem August 3, 2010 Reply

    Well it worked like a charm for me.
    I have iPhone 3GS new bootrom, simply upgraded iTunes, upgraded to iOS4 from iTunes, ofcoarse my carrier was not supported to i had only wifi access, which was enough to do the job.

    however i had to restore my iPhone afterwards (stupid me), and it wiped out real nice, except that now i can only make emergency calls, is there a way to hacktivate 3.1.3,4.0 or 4.0.1 yet?
