    didnt work for me, im using redsn0w .0.9.11b4 iphone 3gs ios 5.1.1

    redsn0w is stuck in uploading ramdisk

    computer os windows 7 and im running redsn0w as administrator

    • sivasankar says:

      right click redsn0w, goto properties-compatibilty-select run this program in compatiblity mode for windows XP service pack 2. Also enable administrator mode below. this must work for sure.
      If again problem exists go to task manager, in process tab find redsn0w,right click and select set affinity.
      Now proceed……

      • dominic says:

        hey uhh… im using redsn0w 0.9.14b1 and I can’t seem to install cydia because once it exploits everything after DFU it will give me a message stating “This version does not support untethered” bla bla bla how do i fix it?

    • benny says:

      will my phone number remain after doing this?

  2. jasem says:

    thanks man for the great help , I did everything but when I installed ultrasnow , the phone still locked and it say no service and notice that the wireless is not stable as before .
    ,the one I am using is 06.15.00,
    do I have to do something else ,
    appreciate it ,

    • sivasankar says:

      just go to cydia, manage->sources->edit->add-> http://repo.iparelhos.com
      Add this source, after this enter into the added source and install ultrasn0w fixer for 5.1.1 and install ultrasn0w again. Reboot the iphone. Insert ur sim card.
      wait 2 minutes… if needed turn on and off airplane mode. Eventually u will find ur carrier.

    • Bogo says:

      Thanks!!!! I love you alll!!!!!!! i tought I have lost my Iphone 3gs for ever..i f**ed up everithing I could,dind’t made back-up..but with this info i was able to have my phone working again. For other users having problems, follow the instructions, if u have any errors, do it again, if u see searching and searching downgrade your baseband…I did all this (for the first time, not even knowing what baseband is, don’t know now either..) and it all worked out perfect.
      Thanks again

    • plop34paul says:

      I have had exactly the same problems. I’ve tried all the points below, including downgrading and nothing has worked. Still “searching” or “no service” comes up, and I too have very unstable wireless? After 15 emails to the Redsnow people (who I paid money too) and about 15 hours on this – I’m pretty frustrated! Can anyone help!
      What is the “no service fix”?

  3. jasem says:

    thanks sivasankar,
    but it did not work , what else I can do to unlock this phone , may be i have the new bootrom one I guess,
    is there any way ,I can unlock that ,
    thanks

  4. Rue says:

    Everything was working fine until I went into Cydia and searched for “Rocky Racoon” as you did, when I searched it nothing came up. Now what do I do?
    Thanks

    • Mikersson says:

      search in youtube and look for the source that have the “Rocky Racoon” repo, install the source in manage->sources->edit->add-> (name of the source) and after that look for the “Rocky Racoon” repo again.

  5. Rue says:

    Nevermind I found it, but when I go to download “Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether” I get a
    “Cannot Comply: The requested modifications cannot be applied due to required dependencies or conflicts that cannot be automatically found or fixed”
    Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether
    Depends – iOS Firmware =5.1.1″

    Do I need to upgrade my OS to 5.1.1?
    Please help, thank you!

  6. Mikersson says:

    Ohhh IT WORKED FOR MEEE!!!! i INSTALLED THE ROCKY RACOON AND i HAVE MY CARRIER BACKL AFTER 5 MONTHS!!!
    mAN u RE THE BEST!!!!

  7. daniel says:

    unlock wont work

  8. Robert says:

    Need help I have the phone jailbroken but cant unlock it to work with Simply mobile it has 05.16.05 firmware what can I do to unlock it without a sim card.

    • sivasankar says:

      ur firmware 05.16.05 cannot be unlocked. u must upgrade ur baseband to 06.15.00 using redsn0w.
      It is easier process, just select “Install ipad baseband” option in redsn0w and complete the process.
      Then install ultrsn0w…. U r done………..

      • Paula says:

        I have mistakingly restored my previously jailbreaked and unlocked Iphone 3gs on Itunes so now is locked.

  62. Mani Ahmed says:

    I have the latest Iphone 3GS (manufactured in Nov 2011, serial no QR1535FCEDG), new bootrom with iOS 5.1.1, jailbreaked and activated through the latest redsnow unthethered process. It was previously AT&T carrier but has been sold to me here in Pakistan.

    I need to unlock it and it seems ultrasnow doesnt yet support the base band 05.16.05 which was what this phone was supplied with even on the said 5.0.1 which now i have updated to 5.1.1.

    Need alternate help of when can i expect the said inclusion of the baseband 05.16.05 in ultrasnow. I cannot upgrade it to ipad baseband because of the new toshiba bootrom, not to mention that has still reported issues.

    My last hope remains with ultrasnow or any other hack including the required baseband.

    Thanks alot.

    I went through the entire process above and my phone is activated. But with and without Ultrasn0w my iPhone 3gs is not recognizing the sim (original).

    My phone is now on 5.1.1, 06.15.00

  68. yuri says:

    brilliant.

    worked first time for me, very good video…….
    i have iphone 3gs on 5.1.1. baseband 06.15.00 and the activate, jailbreak and untether all worked first time for me. thankyou for posting!

    i have a query though- i cannot unlock my 3gs and it won’t work on any sim, have tried ultrasn0w and ultrasn0w fixer for 5.1.1. but absolutely nothing works. A friend gave me the phone as she upgraded hers when she switched to a new provider however i believe she did not pay her bill once, and i’ve heard that the original provider can block phones if a customer has not paid bill etc?

    any help would be great as am about to give up and buy a new one..

    thanks.

    Great instructions. I just can’t get my iPhone 3GS into DFU mode!

    Phone info:
    Device model: MC131KS/A – iPhone3GS
    Installed firmware: 5.1.1
    Baseband: 05.16.05-6.4_M3S2
    ECID(Dec): 2451790044463 ECID(Hex)23ADA131D2F
    Serial: 82939GE03NP

    I have tried forcing it to DFU mode through Redsn0w but that does not work. I get error messages about incomplete iTunes library although my iTunes is fully up to date and new version available.

    If anyone has any advise for me, it would be much appreciated.

    Hi – I just jail broke my 3GS iPhone 5.1.1 version and installed cydia. I jail broke with: iPhone2,1_5.1_9B176_Restore and redsn0w_mac_0-1.9.10b6. After jail breaking, I installed Rocky raccoon 5.1.1 untethered and Ultrasn0w. but when I put the SIM card in, it searches and then says ‘No service’.

    - I don’t get any error message when I unlock the phone.
    - The modem firmware is 05.16.05
    - The iPhone is 3GS.
    - It is version 5.1.1 (9B206)
    - The serial number doesn’t have any 9 in it, so I said yes for ‘fixed’

    I jail broke it on my mac laptop.

    Can you help?

    Thanks!
    cara

    I tried it everything went good until the uploading data to the ram of my ihpone the white letters on my iphone kept going down until it says errot and stops. what do i do from here! it doens”t do anything now.

  190. aka22 says:

    i have done it. what i did is recover via itunes and then it will as it was first. then you go the process all over again. and when you are ready to reboot it untethered for me it stopped with limena or whatever it was. then you cancel en do dfu mode all over again without plug the iphone out. leave it plugged in en do the dfu mode over again and then the pineapple wil appear . once that happened you just have to wait and follow the instructions on your iphone. I hope evryone understand and so not ask me it you need help!

    My phone has been unlocked and jailbreaked, then restored to factory settings and now I am trying to jailbreak and unlock it again.

    I´ve followed the steps in the video but when I get to Set up the Iphone after the wi-fi set up it directs me straight to Activating Iphone, then reads “Activation Failed”
    It requests to insert a sim card, if I do it it says it is not recognized.

    I just bought the phone, it is new, I an pretty sure it is a new version but I cannot check the settings to confirm it. I´ve done all as if new.

    Pls help me with a solution!

I have a program to mount this and get the cotents, but it says it’s encrypted and needs a password? Any ideas? Kind of stuck now!

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Hi ! My name is Hélène and first thank you very much for the video it helped me “hacktivate” my iphone 4 (5.1.1) !

    But still I encounter the “no service” issue and I do not understand why it does that, do you have the method to make it work ?

    I know for sure my sim card works (I tried it on my old blackberry).

    Thanks in advance !

  236. s1234 says:

    how do i check what i0S my iphone is running on without going to settings since i cant get past the activation screen

  237. Reena says:

    I had done everything it said in the video and it was a success. But when the iPhone turned on, i checked the wifi, language, etc. and after the picking the wifi, i clicked next from the upper right corner and it went back to the “Activating your iPhone” and it was loading. Then it still wasn’t activating. What should I do? :|

  238. sawa says:

    on the jail breaking partg after i entered DFU mode…it says “device doesn’t support untethwewd mode”

    dyld: code signature for shared cache with errno=7
    iphone 4 i had the activation setup screen like in this video so i wanna try but am stk

  242. EDONNA says:

    I viewed your video, but the process didn’t work for me. It appeared it got stuck during jail break. I have a 3gs later model that wont allow for untethered break. The message I got during my second attempt at jail break said ” missing keys.plist data for this build:
    Device: iPhone 3gs
    ECID: 2909321612622
    Build: iPhone2,1._6.0.1.1_10A523
    Can you help! Your site and links are the most straightforward links I have encountered. Thank you for your clarity and professionalism.

  243. lenny says:

    this dont work… did everything he said step by step my ios never changed from 5.1.1 to 5.1 still on 5.1.1 and still no service.. when i put the sim in

  244. Amy says:

    I’m working off a mac computer and am using ipsw 5.1 and redsn0w 0.9.11 b4 as I saw that one of the comments recommended you use that if it said ‘searching..’ not ‘no sim’. i tried 0.9.10 b6 but i had exactly the same problem I am now.. right after the jailbreak part instead of the apple logo it reboots with a black screen with white writing.

    • Amy says:

      okay so it eventually got past the black screen thing but then it just went back to that initial activation screen so it wouldn’t let me do the ‘just boot’ thing and when i tried and did the DFU thing it just said
      “unrecognised build, fingerprint: 071daefbb9fe3e06735d9464f25c07ff”

  245. pasindu says:
