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.

I am still waiting to unlock my 3GS 3.1 Out of Box, is there any hope? my baseband is 05.xx.xx?
I am based in India and have purchased iphone 3Gs from USA under the At&T plan, with version 3.1 (7C144) and Modem firmware version 05.11.07
Let me know if this can be unlocked, as I want to use Indian SIM card
Sorry it’s not unlockable atleast for now..
Looks like Geohot will release the unlock for the 5.X baseband around Nov 4.
So when can we expect to be able to unlock our iPhones if we have the 5.11.07 firmware???? Please let us know asap!
Hacker are working on it no one can say how long will it take..
Thanks very simple and very easy
I have unlocked my 3g iphone all went well but when i insert idea simcard it says u r phone is outoff coverage area. anybody have the solution
Hi iPhone Heat i need ur help .
My iPhone GS is NOT Activated (for Official Carrier Users)and i download already the custom firmware n i restore from the itunes but after done the got some text that says
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 ?
You’re on Official carrier.. right!
did you install NOT Activated custom firmware?
You can check modem firmware from:
Settings > General > About
where can i download the custom firmware 3.1.2, actually i m not the premium user
hey, can i install custom firmware 3.1.2 to iphone 3GS modern firmware 05 and then jailbreak from blackra1n? please reply me iphone Heat
Simple solution for you is to Restore with official firmware..
follow this guide to jailbreak 3GS:
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!
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
restore also not working.. its a brand new 3gs… would appreciate help!
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.
because iPhone Baseband 05.12.01 is not unlockable at the moment..
and you lose Cydia because Apple hates jailbreaking
so when and how can i unlock my iphone?
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
Nope.. not yet
after add source but can’t see the “ultrasn0w” in cydia….
Excellent! Clear, concise, easy to follow instructions which work…
Thanks from a relieved iphone user in Germany.
