Just Jailbroke and unlocked by 3GS. Everything worked like a charm. During unlock, after step 12, it asked me to “Reboot device” rather than “Return to Cydia”
Havent tested if the phone is unlocked or not, but everything appears ok. Thanks a lot. Great set of instructions as well.

Hi iPhone Heat i need ur help .

The SIM Card inserted in this phone does not appear to be supported

Only compatible SIM cards from a supported carrier may be used to activate iPhone.
Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carrier’s store to receive a replacement SIM card.

Btw i dunno what is the modem firmware version .
Can u let me know why is that happend ?

Thanks

iPhoneHeat November 2, 2009, 10:31 pm

You’re on Official carrier.. right!
did you install NOT Activated custom firmware?

You can check modem firmware from:
Settings > General > About

Karan February 7, 2010, 7:58 am

ok.. big problem… i tried to flash the data by selecting delete content and settings from the phone itself… PHONE IS NOW HUNG!… nothings working.. restore from iTunes is not working as well.. would really appreciate quick advise!

iPhoneHeat February 7, 2010, 9:13 am

never erase data from within iPhone when you have a jailbroken device.. this is what happens afterward
now put your iPhone into DFU mode and restore

Karan February 8, 2010, 11:23 am

restore also not working.. its a brand new 3gs… would appreciate help!

vesh February 16, 2010, 9:47 pm

why my cydia program is deleted after i update 3.1.3(7E18) version with baseband 05.12.01 in my 3gs iphone. can somebody tell me please and i cannot use sim anymore its lock. how cani get a cydia again.

iPhoneHeat February 16, 2010, 11:19 pm

because iPhone Baseband 05.12.01 is not unlockable at the moment..
and you lose Cydia because Apple hates jailbreaking

vesh February 17, 2010, 4:03 pm

so when and how can i unlock my iphone?

vesh February 17, 2010, 4:10 pm

i know my phone 3gs is lock but is there any possibe or website, source to download cydia back to my iphone or to downgrade the baseband

iPhoneHeat February 18, 2010, 12:50 am

Nope.. not yet

grace2626 June 11, 2010, 3:11 pm
