for ios 6.1.6 you must use the ios 6.0 ipsw to get redsnow to read the ipsw. this worked for me hope it works for someone else !!

Hello, This thing is stuck on Waiting for Rebooting...can anybody tell me how to get it fix? or maybe I should downgrade from firmware 6.1.3 to 6.1.2 and I would like to have the instruction how to do it. Thanks!

I had the same problem than you (with an iPhone 3GS, ios 6.1.3) and here is how I fixed it : before starting the downgrading process, you click on "Extras", then "Select IPSW" and choose the ios 6.0, even though you're in 6.1.3. Its because Redsn0w doesnt support the ios 6.1.3 so you're gonna trick it into believing that you're in 6.0. Once you've done that, (and you need to specifiy wether you have the old or the new bootroom), you can start downgrading your baseband as explained in this tutorial. And everytime you want to use redsn0w (for booting, or anything else), you have to do the same thing again : selecting the 6.0 ipsw. And it won't be stuck on "waiting for rebooting" anymore !

HI frengky sure your iphone 3gs will get unlocked ..IF not then unlock it with the help of providers like SuperUnlockCodes.com here they are rendering remote unlocking service to unlock all model iphone from network lock .You first verify that whether they are rendering service for your country and network provider .If yes then pay for it and unlock your iphone 3g .

for 6.1.3 users.. simply use 6.0 firmware and downgrade from ipad baseband.. and thats it.. then use ultrasn0w.. i have done it many times.. on some 3gs only baseband downgrading works and for some ultrasn0w works..

Hi guys, Thanks to each one of you for valuable comments and suggestions. For last 2 days I have been searching and trying desperately to bring my 3GS alive. I was trying to upgrade to 6.1. It was not able to search network. So I downgraded it to 5.1.1 (originally I had 5.0.1). But nothing was working. Seeing me sitting whole day over OLD 3GS, my wife threatened to throw my iPhone out of old window :) But finally I was able to crack it :) Following is what I did: - start with iPhone 3GS, 5.0.1 BB 6.15.00. old bootrom. - down load "redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3" and "iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw" - Run redsnow with admin access - go to extras-> even more->restore->IPSW. - slect iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw. click no on next screen.. - follow as redsnow suggests - iOS 5.1.1 is restored - When the update is completed don't do anything on the iphone. - go back and Click Jailbreak - Click Cydia - Click degrade iPAD Baseband - Click Deactivate - Next and make the procedures of holding the buttons - Wait for the Jailbreak - When the iphone is back again put the SIM CARD again. (it did not work for me, you can check, if it works, great. otherwise continue). - go back and Click Jailbreak- Click Cydia - Next and make the procedures of holding the buttons - Wait for the Jailbreak - When the iphone is back again put the SIM CARD again. And thats it.

Thanks for the post.I would like to share my experience in unlocking my iPhone 3G.I wanted to unlock it from the respective locked network but did not want to jailbreak it.As jailbreak makes the user to lose the warranty of the phone.I was also not comfortable in using the available unlocking tools.I searched and found that Theunlockarena.com provides such a permanent unlocking service for iPhone models.They unlock the iPhone through the remote unlock service which would be a better option because,we need not give the mobile to someone else nor do we have any chance to enter the wrong unlock codes.This type of unlocking was very apt for me.I unlocked my mobile and now free to switch networks.

My iphone has ios 6.1.3 (10B329) with baseband 06.15.00. It doesn't have cydia (I use H2O which uses ATT line). Now I was trying to downgrade Baseband, because I wanted to get the IMEI unlock and to switch to Tmobile (gosmart). Can I simply follow the process described above? I am asking this because there are lots of confusing information about ios 6.1.3. (some people say nothing would work once I have ios 6.1.3. installed in my iphone.). thank you for your help.

Hi Martin, Yes i got mine sorted. You need to make sure you go back to select ipsw again and ensure you point it to the 6.0 restore file again. then it should reboot for you and you'll have service again. I hope that makes sense to you

Hi Guys, I have iPhone 3GS with old BootRom. I mistakenly updated it to 6.0.1 from 5.0.1 with ipad Baseband. After updating I had No Network even when Cydia was there as the firmware I installed was a CFW made using Snowbreeze. Then I installed the ultrasnow and ultasnow fixer but still in vain as I still had No Network. Then after reading the below link I realized that I need to downgrade my Baseband. http://forums.imore.com/jailbreaking-unlocking-hacks-themes-mods/245199-3gs-6-0-1-jailbroken-cydia-ultrasnow-fixer-still-no-service-2.html So I did that with this method to dowgrade the baseband to 5.13.4 and used redsn0w 0.9.15 b3 but still there were no signals after the reboot and I was really pissed off at this point. I reinstall the ultrasnow and ultrasnow fixer but no use. So then I removed ultrasnow and ultrasnow fixer and restarted my phone. After the reboot I again installed ultrasnow and Whaooooooooola. I got the network. Thanks to God. :-) So this tutorial is great and below is the one which I used to install ultra snow. http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4253 I am mentioning it here so it might help someone else too.

I've tried redsn0w and sn0wbreeze etc. Is there any step by step instructions to make the jailbreaking process easier? After using redsn0w I would unlock with Cydia but then after a while it doesn't want to open! so i read everyone's comments a thousand times and still cant get service or cydia to work!! What do I do? Anyone have advice for iphone dummies???

I successfully downgraded the modem firmware from 6.15 to 5.13.04 but I didn't unlock the phone again cause I thought that it would still be unlocked after I downgraded the modem firmware. So I thought I could update the ios now because I dpwngraded the modem firmware. Then iTunes asked me if I want to restore the iPhone 3GS, so I did and I think it was wrong for me to have restored it. Then it says there was an error so I tried putting my simcard and it said that it was invalid and it asks for the original sim. So is there any way for me to use the iPhone 3GS again? Cause it asks for the original sim for it to be activated.

Please perform a clean "slide to power off" (in the iphone during jailbreak) cant get any GPS. I put in the ipad baseband to downgrade, now I got screwed!

@anon; sorry for late reply you have to down load redsn0w latest that is 9.15 b3, please if you have ipad base band 6.15 please don't restore with iTunes until you downgrade that.when you downgrade you have to use the same ipsw (firmware) that you had.When the base band changed then you can restore with iTunes to 6.1 firmware and 5.16.08 base band. Good Luck

@deefuze Please make clear first your phone details like Base band and Ipsw; if you already have The base band 5.13.04 why you need to downgrade? please be sure it works only to downgrade 6.15 ipad base band. if your iPhone Base band(Modem firware) already cahnged to 5.13.04 then you are safe to restore with iTunes to latest ipsw version 6.1 and then jailbreak with follow the link:http://www.iclarified.com/27187/the-evasi0n-jailbreak-for-ios-61-has-been-released

HI deefuze if you want to unlock iphone 3gs from network lock .Then have a look at sites like Mobile-Unlocker.com here they are rendering remote unlocking service to unlock all model iphone from network lock .You first verify that whether they are rendering service for your country and network provider .If yes then pay for it and unlock your iphone 3gs ...

In my first message you can find the model and serial numbers... yesterday I tried the Tinyumbrella and Recovery Fix.... so... after that the device didnt turn on. iTunes tries to restore but gives the error 1394 (I guess). I couldnt do anything on that. I entered in DFU mode and using redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3 ran the iPhone2,1_5.1.1_9B206_Restore.ipsw, it was installing fine (stuck for a while on the stage "Thansferring control to jailbreak...") and now there is a picture on the phone showing that I need run iTunes and plug the USB cable to computer and I can make the Emergency call. But in iTunes it says that the SIM card inserted to that iPhone doesn't appear to be supported. Thank you for helping me.

hi what you can do is you can run ultrasnow 0.9.15b2 and use the 6.0 ipsw not 6.0.1. When you run ultrasnow select the ipsw first on extras menu then select back then select jailbreak. follow the on screen istructions of putting it in DFU mode then wait for it to be jailbroken. after that is will be activated usually termed hactivated....thats it your phone will be activated.

you did not mention your cellphone bootrmo and current ipsw. If it has a new bootrom then try to down grade with your current firmware not with other than that. Dont worry about the logo if you put your cellphone again in DFU mode it will work with redsn0w. before you do it yourself better to find and watch those kind of video on YouTube. Thanks.

Hi I bought a iPhone 3GS Serial# 88004XXXXXX Came with Jailbreak 4.1 with 6.15.00 base band. What Happened I have downgrade the base band to 5.13.04 with the same IPSWs. Later on I tried to upgrade 5.1.1 But Some how I couldn't finish it . My phone rebooted with iTunes and updated to latest BB (5.13.07) and IPSWs(6.0.1.) I thought whatever happened I can go for factory unlock. But Finally I found my phone asking for activation.I got refund from two unlock company refund cause they could not do it. May be due to unactivated phone. I tried to do hactivation with Redsn0w 9.15b3 with 6.0.1 but the redsn0ws says this IPSW's no more supported with this redsn0ws. Would you please tell me How can I get rid of this. Thanks

I've downloaded the latest redsn0w, 0.9.15.b3, and followed the instructions above. I'm trying to just unjailbreak my 3G and I gather I need to remove the 06.15.00 baseband in order to be able to restore from itunes without the 1015 error. Regarding the steps above, I don't recall it showing anything to do with "limera1n" (step 11) and on 14, after redsn0w says done the rest is on the device, the iphone screen is black (on, but no logos or text). First time that happened I turned the phone off and on and it restarted but no change. Second time around I've just left it in that state and eventually after 5-10 minutes it just powered down. Starting it up again it loads up and again no change. These come from the redsn0w identify function: ProductType: iPhone1,2 ProductVersion: 4.2.1 ModelNumber: MB489 FirmwareVersion: iBoot-931.71.16 HardwareModel: N82AP BasebandVersion: 06.15.00 BasebandBootloaderVersion: 6.4_M3S2 BuildVersion: 8C148 Has anyone got any experience or advice on that please?

Thank you for that. What is the reason for using the different versions of redsn0w? Sorry if it's a daft questions but what's deactivating and is that just an option in that ver of redsn0w? In terms of downgrading is that also a menu option in redsn0w or do I need some different ispw within Redsn0w 0.9.12b1? In terms of then restoring to 4.2.1 - must that be done through Redsn0w 0.9.12b1 or is that a case of using shift+restore in itunes? And is there any particaular ispw that I should use or is from what I can tell the stock one of "iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore"?

Redsn0w 0.9.15b2 for windows. 2. iPhone1,2_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw So guys, there is an issue: 1. I restored my iPhone to the factory settings by iTunes. 2. Than i opened the redsn0w, selected ipsw and tried to install iPad baseband. So everything goes right, no errors nothing, but at the end, my iPhone just won`t start. Apple logo in the middle of the screen and thats it. I tried like 5 times, even i`m trying to downgrade from iPad baseband, the same issue (perhaps, I couldn`t install the iPad bb.)

Regarding restoring to 6.0 on 3GS. Then downgrading ipad baseband because "No Sim" issue... I was able to install cydia & Ultrasn0w to do the unlock using redsn0w but it searches then say's "No Service". But it seemed to have gotten the signal for 1 second and prompted me that I have a voice message. So I don't know why it doesn't work! Mind you, it was working perfect until I ignorantly restored to 6.0.

So I have an iPhone that is jailbroken (SN - 86012) and its baseband now is 06.15.00 I tried to unlock my iPhone with Ultrasn0w but it doesn't work cause he keeps saying that it is searching for service or no service (after a while). Should I downgrade my baseband and try Ultrasn0w again or is there an other solution for this case. Please help me out! Greets

In Your case I'd try above procedure but in step eight check "install ipad baseband" box first (with unchecked "downgrade baseband"), and than run it again exacltly like described above.

Oh yeah, by the way, i tried again and it went all the way through, it got to the part that i go the icon of jailbreak on my screan,etc but then it didnt take up 3-8 minutes as it says, it rebooted pretty quickly and then it said it was done, but it said everytime i wanted to reboot it i would have to do it throguh the "just reboot" icon, before doing that i checked my baseband and it diddnt go to the one it was supposed to as it said, it stayed on the same one i was before... then i clicked on just reboot as it said and it didnt do much, just got my iphone to a black screen and then i had to cancel the process ... :( by the way i have an iphone 3gs on the 4.3.4 8.2bs , baseband 05.16.02... anyone knows whats going on or any suggestion? my goal is to unlock it as i got it on england from ORANGE and now im in australia... thanks a lot in advance

Team, Excellent job !! A big hug to you all. My 3GS ( already jail-broken and unlocked on IOS 5.11 with BB06.15) could be downgraded to 5.13.04 in the first attempt, without any problems whatsoever. I did not have to reinstall Cydia or ultrasn0w. Kudos. Keep up the good work.

" Update #2: There’s a subset of 3GS iPhones that won’t take the downgrade. We now understand why (they use a slightly different NOR chip), and should be receiving a loaner of such a phone on Thursday the 28th. After we have one in hand we’ll tweak the redsn0w payload to handle that variation too! ".... Directly from http://blog.iphone-dev.org/

To all persons having NO WIFI, BLUETOOTH, IMEI and BB problems, you have a 99% chance of fixing it if only you got these problem when you were updating your baseband to 06.15.00. I does happen and so it can be fixed. Please follow the steps carefully. 1. Restore to iOS 4.1 (This will provide your iDevice with all lost SHSH) when you get error 1013 during restore process, use tinyumbrella to kick it from recovery. 2. Jailbreak with Redsnow 9.10b6. (make sure that your check INSTALL CYDIA and INSTALL IPAD BASEBAND. AFTER THESE YOU WILL GET YOUR IMEI, BB, WIFI and BLUETOOTH all WORKING.

Exit iTunes Locate your hosts file: In Mac OS X /etc/hosts In Windows c:windowssystem32driversetchosts Open the hosts file with Administrator privileges using Notepad. Add the following lines to the very bottom of the hosts file: #74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com Connect your device to the computer Launch iTunes Put device into DFU Mode by turning your device off and then holding down the sleep and power button for 10 seconds, then release the power button but hold onto the home button until iTunes tells you that the device is now in recover mode Use the iTunes Restore feature as usual with the iOS device Once your iOS update is finished, remove the “#74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com” line from your hosts file again so that iTunes can properly update as usual. NOTE: If you still get error 3194 after doing the above, then you will have to create a custom ios 4.1 firmware with snowbreeze. (create in simple mode) 1. Use redsnow 9.10b6 to select IPSW 2. Go back and select Jailbreak to patch kernel 3. After go back to Extras and select Pwned DFU Get into DFU mode and then use Itunes to restore your iDevice using the 4.1 firmware you have created by using snowbreeze. I will help you out when you encounter any error. Take care.

I successfully downgraded. However, Cydia would also always crash with me. I did everything exactly as instructed. Tried everything to solve it, including booting tethered (would stuck on Waiting for iPhone 3GS...) What worked for me was to BOOT TETHERED, but using the old version of Redsn0w 0.9.6rc9. (for the record, I was in Airplane mode). Let me know if it helps anyone by sending a tweet to @andreazevedo!

So I want to say thank you for all the work that goes into jail breaking. Under appreciated doesn't do it justice. So I have a 3GS old boot-rom. I was on 5.0.1 jailbroken with absinthe and ultrasnow on 6.15.00 baseband. I had wifi and gps issues among other things. I was able to successfully downgrade the baseband to 5.13.04 easily thank you, but when i then upgraded to 5.1.1 I did not know it had 5.16.04 i believe it was thus losing unlock. I reupgraded the baseband to ipad 6.15 again and regained unlock but now redsnow will not let me downgrade again. It tells me device is Racoon j/b already. I am now upgraded and unlocked again but still 6.15 ;( Any idea's?

Tried it on 3GS 5.1.1 not working at all. Still stuck on 6.15 and phone has lots of problems like safari not opening wifi keeps crashing Bluetooth turns on and off by itself and most important no service. Did they release the fix to early? Or it works only with the 3G? Guess have to start looking for a new phone. Very disappointed this time. Hope they release another proper fix... I recommend do not attempt this fix until something more solid comes out. Thanks

Wtf are you trying to say?You got it all wrong. Apple steatrd this messed up patent war back in April, and samsung has been legally defending their products. Samsung had planned to sue Apple for the 4S a month before. Just because Apple lost their CEO, does not mean Samsung continues letting Apple use Samsung's better technology.

Big thanks to the i-phone Dev Team fir akk their hard work, I'm sure this proccess works but,I am having trouble downgrading base band as well. Thought that i would try and restore the firmware, in effect, removing cydia to start the process from square one. But I am now saddled with an iphone that needs to be activated with a sim card. Thinking of taking it to Apple store and hoping i can leave the store with an activated device. Any input into what i should do next is greatly appreciated.

I had the same issue (using windows 7) and found that redsnow 9.15 b3 wouldn't work at all for this process on a 3g. So i used 9.14 b2 and re updated to ipad baseband and then did the process again with the downgrade baseband checked only (i installed cydia on the ipad baseband install) and it worked the first time. All this after a half day wasted using the newest version of redsnow hope this helps.
