If you updated your iPhone 3GS to 5.1.1 and it was previously unlocked with the 6.15.00 baseband, you probably noticed that it wont pick up signal anymore and it just says “searching…” and eventually “No Service” even if there is no sim card in the iPhone itself.  Follow the steps in the video below to get your iPhone up and running in no time. Don’t worry, we at iHelpCorner.com know that some instructional videos are difficult to follow so we try to make every video as detailed as possible.

    It works. Thanks a ton

    • Ganga says:


      It is giving me still “No Service” after doing all these steps. In my case, it is unlocked before (so, probably already upgraded to ipad baseband), now i re-flashed baseband. There is no error while installation and booting. But it is still saying no service, Please help. Only improvement after base band flashing is that atleast it is saying NO SIM CARD installed wheread before flashing it used to search automatically and saying NO SERVICE at the end.

      Please help.

      hi, my iphone is “new root” i cant get passed searching… or no service, im tired-lol
      i’ve done like 30 videos and nothing yet – specs are :
      5.1.1 (9B206)
      s# 86139………
      model: MC640LL

      • Hag says:

        I have tried all that is required except upgrading my baseband which is currently and I am on 5.1.1. My serial is xx2205xxxx, so when I was in the process of upgrading the baseband, it warned me that it is not advisable if my serial is above version xx134xxx, so I cancelled the baseband upgrade via redsn0w. I only did the jailbreak and everything went well, I also installed cydia and ultrasn0w and did everything but the “NO SERVICE” is still showing, so my big question is with my serial being xx2205xxxx should I ignore the warning and upgrade the baseband?

  2. victor soriano says:

    hi! just did this and it worked!!!! can i unlock my iphone after dong this?

  3. Agna says:

    I have run Rocky Racoon and now have an untethered jailbroken 3GS with 5.1.1 — my bootrom is older (86936). Are there new instructions now, or should I run this to fix the no service issue. Also need to enable MMS, how to do?

  4. Israel says:

    Thanks soo soo much. I tried a million options, and none worked until now.

  5. old man says:

    You may try SAM by adding http://repo.lingner.com in cydia and try to instal SAM
    it did not work for me (I do not have the original sim ) may be that is why ….
    Try and you may have luck more than me
    enjoy if worked and don’t despair if did not work

  6. yogibaba55 says:

    Many thanks. It worked a charm. For a while though, I thought I had a brick on my hands.

  7. Dhana says:

    I followed the steps and redsn0w would stop in fetching baseband and it will stop. Anything i am doing wrong?

    • Useman says:

      Open redsn0w then open task manager go to process and right click on redsn0w >>affiliate >>unchecked the CPU 1 and close the task manager after that go to redn0w and do what u need ( redsn0w must not be closed during that procces )

  8. iksoviet says:

    doing the process says “ipad baseband failed”. any thoughts?

  9. soban says:

    In order to unlock 3GS 5.1.1 BB 6.15.00, just do a tethered JB with Rocky Rcoccoon, then install ultrasnow fixer first thru cydia and then finally the ultrasnow. after banging my head against wall in JB and activating 5.1.1, i finally watched the video. followed the sequence for JB and activation and then the sequence in this comment to unlock … i hope this bails out somebody from down under..

  10. gladys says:

  17. Jonah says:

    Is this safe to do after Hacktivating the iPhone 3GS using your tutorial Here – http://ihelpcorner.com/hacktivate511 ?

    I have an iPhone that i cannot activate with the SIM i have, so i’m thinking, i will reset it, put on 5.1.1 Hacktivate it, and then do this. Would that be safe enough to do?

    P.S. I currently have it jailbroken with Rocky Racoon, using Snowbreeze, and when i try to use Redsn0w, it tells me i can’t jailbreak, because it is already jailbroken with Rocky Racoon..

    • Jonah says:

      Okay, i got it to run all of that, and i used the end of the other video, now it see’s my carrier, but no strength off the signal. It’s flat. No matter where i am, and with a different SIM inserted. Please help, i’ve got this far, i must be surely near the light at the end of the tunnel.. 🙂

  18. Leo says:

    I finally got it done!!!!!!!
    I followed the other video to hacktivate the 5.1.1 and installed the ultrasnow and the 5.1.1 fixer, but the phone keeps searching and “no service” at the end.
    Then I was trying to follow this video to fix the problem. I have just finished half way through (5:05 of this video), the white apple came up and the phone didn’t stuck there, it just go straight to the unlock screen. And the signal is back!!!!.
    Thank you everyone, this site is a great help.

  19. Kv says:

  22. lemor says:

  23. Rory says:

    Thanks for taking the time. I’ve been through all of this but whilst I can get past the activate screens, I still do not get any signal when I put the simcard back in.

    I think the phone was previously jailbroken, and this all went wrong when we tried to update it. I’ve followed the video above but till not success. What can I do?


  24. blr says:

  29. Matthew Roberts says:

    Thank you sooo much. I can now use my Iphone and I am not stuck on the activation screen. One problem I am still having though is that My phone still says no service. How would I fix that?

  30. Ptaz says:

    Hi Guys,

    If you are having no signal issues, here’s what worked for me.

    Model: IPHONE 3gs new bootrom

    1) flash IOS 5.1.1. official firmware to your device using iTunes.
    2) Use Redsnow 0.9.14.b1 with official IOS 5.1.1 IPSW (select extras then select manually specify IPSW from the redsnow menu)
    3) choose back on the redsnow menu, put your phone into DFU mode jailbreak the device and choose these options: install cydia, upgrade with iPad baseband continue through the warnings.

    4) once the jailbreak is complete, go to cydia install ultrasnow 2.5.7.
    5) respring
    6) go back into cydia then go to search, find mobile substrate and uninstall it. (this will also uninstall ultrasnow)

    7) go back into cyida for the third time and reinstall the mobile substrate package.


    9 ) go back into cydia for the fourth time and reinstall ultrasnow.

    10) respring

    10) receive signal

    Something is getting corupted during the baseband install which is causing you to have to reinstall the mobile substrate package and then ultasnow is able to unlock the phone.

    hope this helps

    Cheers from Toronto canada..

      After installing-deleting-reinstalling, upgrading downgrading basebands until I almost went mad, this reinstall of ‘mobile substrate’ finally did the trick… Hallelujah…

      And from now on I’m never ever going to update/change this iPhone again… What a pain this is…!

    • lloyd says:

      hi.. where did you get the ultrasn0w 2.5.7? i can only see 1.2.7..

    • Tim says:

      I followed Ptaz’s instructions but it didn’t work for me, phone now just shows “searching …” for ever. My iPhone is 3Gs, 32GB, old bootroom, factory unlocked. Any input to resolve this problem is greatly appreciated.

    • Tim says:

      When I do ‘ultrasn0w – mobile substrate’ thing, I got an error message saying “could not activate cellular data network”. Guess that was the reason why I wasn’t successful in fixing “no service / searching …”. Did it happen happen to any one here ?

    • Tim says:

      if an iPhone 3gs has new bootroom, how could you flash the phone with official FW 5.1.1 ? iTunes told me “my phone nor qualified to this built”, so I had to create a custom FW from the official FW and went from there. But “no service” and “searching…” remained. Frustrated !

  31. Huthaifah Mustafa says:

  46. Trinyl Dev&Share says:

    Hello, I jailbroken my iPhone 3GS that has the iOS 5.1.1 and when I jailbroken it you said to use the 5.1 firmware to jailbrake it… Now I have to use the 5.1.1 to fix the god damn No Service??

  47. Pete says:

    Hi I have been given a 3gs 32gb (SN88005). I believe it has been jailbroken in the past and before but was originally on O2. I have an O2 sim card for it, not the original. The phone up dated to OS 5.1.1 before I was given it and now is stuck in searching/no service. I have tried to use the above method to recover it but I can only get as far as putting it into DFU mode where Redsnow saya it cannot detect a device. If I cancel at this point the phone will not do anything unless I connect to itunes and then it says it is in restore mode and I have to do a full restore to get it to function again .Has anyone got any answers to this.

    • Teledoll says:

      I had the same problem when I hacktivated my 3Gs … the trick is to have your device plugged and in DFU mode before you lauch redsn0w…. it worked for me… try it

  48. wilson says:

    Hey this did the job, thank you.

  49. Alex says:

    does it work for iPhone 4?

  50. Will says:

    Hey followed all the steps, fine. I will get service for about 30 seconds when ultrasn0w isnt installed, it will go to searching/no service. When I install ultrasn0w all I get is searching… any suggestions?

  51. Hal says:

    I might just be undoubtedly stealing this thread, nevertheless I am wanting to get my laptop cleaned, and also do not depend on merely everyone with my stuff.The last provider I worked with swindled some of my computer hardware, so I want one who is well known.I speculate I discovered one seems trustworthy. Could you explain to me if you might have discovered this corporation? The info is as follows A Plus Computer Support 2300 Palm Beach Lakes Blvd. #101 West Palm Beach, FL, 33409 (561) 283-4034. Very good watching out!

  57. 3GS-8GB says:

    I have a iPhone 3GS-8GB and it was working fine on 4.1 with 6.15.00 BB.
    It just stopped working last Friday and I have been re-installing different custom firmwares and jailbreaking it with Redsn0w following most of the video by ihelpcorner and I still can not get a signal. But today I have tried 4 different sim
    Tesco (uses O2 network) – NO SERVICE
    3 Network – NO SERVICE
    Orange (merged with T-Mobile i think) – Signal.. get full bars after turning off 3G and it is recognised as a T-Mobile sim
    T-Mobile – Signal… same as Orange since I think these companies merged?
    I don’t know why this is happening but I want to use this iPhone on O2 network so I can use my Tesco sim again.

    Can any body give suggestions?

  58. Kiden says:

    The solution worked perfectly for me. Your solutions always work perfectly :-)…. Great stuff you are doing…

  60. Nick Delyzer says:

    Hey man, Thanks alot it worked! but not too happy about the tethered, is there anyway to do this with a untethered? please answer me back or email me. Thanks.

  61. ruprecht says:

    hi. your May video said a “no service” fix for untethered would be available shortly. no sign of it yet – any idea when it will be available? many thanks.

  62. Evan says:


    I am following this video for my iPhone 3GS and when I get to the step of putting my phone in DFU, redsn0w doesn’t detect my device. I’m pretty sure I’m doing it correctly because the iPhone screen goes black and my computer makes a “duh-dun” noise (the same one as when you plug your iPhone in). When I open Itunes, it says it detects a device in restore mode (I think it usually says this either if the device is in restore or DFU mode). So it seems like my computer and Itunes are detecting the device, but redsn0w is not.

    Any ideas how to make this work?

  63. MAGGIE says:

    Hi! I got through all the steps to where it said that it was done and the rest was done on the device but the phone seems to have frozen and the last line of text on the phone screen says ‘panic: we are hanging here . . .’ what does this mean and how do i fix this?

    hi…mine went past all steps till i tried to reboot to install cydia..it says missing plist file.wat to do now

    • Shamus says:

      Thanks, been at it for about a day and a half when I found this, but you should add the fact that you have to reboot after installing Cydia to the video. Found it in the comments and I also had to direct ispw to 6.0 during reboot. Other than that, worked perfectly! Thank you.

  105. Shamus says:

    Sorry accidently left that comment as a reply but that persons question has been answered! 😀

  110. DITAS says:

    just like you i was so frustrated when i upgraded my 3gs and the result “No Service and Searching”. i researched here and i was about to do the suggestions which i believe it would really help, but due to some complications i was hesitant so i just talked to the Holy Spirit in the Name of Lord Jesus and claiming that miracle would happen, believe it or not, it worked. Hallelujah, God really is an answering God. anyway thanks even if i was not able to apply your tips, i thank you for making time to help other people. God bless you.

  111. Isabel says:

    Hi , just wondering if i am running iOS 6.0 , with baseband 5.16.07 and i am well and truly stuck on the ‘Searching…’

    Phone has been unlocked & jailbroken , is running Cydia & has ultrasnow & ultrasnow fixer installed …

    Any advice would be REALLY appreciated , have been trying for almost a week now.

    Seems like the baseband could be an issue ?? as many forums say it is ‘unlockable’ I even just paid some money to an ebay ‘factory unlock service’ just to make sure i could work this brand new phone …..

    SOOOOO STUCK ! PLEASE HELP !! Thanks : )
