Are you trying to activate your iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS, or 4 without a sim card?  Well you’re in luck; you can use redsn0w to accomplish just that on any version from 3.X.X -4.X.X.  Currently, iOS 5 is not supported with hacktivation.  Just follow the step by step tutorial below to get your iPhone up and running.  Alternatively, you can use any active/inactive sim card to activate the iPhone as long as it is the carrier the phone was originally locked to (in the USA, its AT&T).

    It worked, thanks

    thanks.. it works… 🙂

  3. Darrius says:

    Having issues with getting redsnow to browse and open up the firmware. I have downloaded all three versions I have and i phone 3 gs installed firmware 5.0.1. Can yo help?

    • Evaldas says:

      me too, and dont know what to do/!

      • Ashlee says:

        Number one, make sure you have the right firmware. Don’t automatically assume that it’s 5.0.1 firmware just because it’s the latest. In example: I’m going to download the 4.2.1 firmware for my iPhone 3G because that is the firmware it is currently running.

        Number two, I would advise that when you download the proper firmware for your iPhone, that the firmware be saved to your Desktop..That way it’ll be easier to find.

        Number three, make sure you have the proper version of Redsn0w. If you went to the link provided at the end of this article, you would have saw there’s different versions of Redsn0w available. I would suggest using Google to figure out which Redsn0w you should use for the version of your iPhone.

        Number four, if you did everything above that I recommended/suggested you’d do, then everything should be working perfectly and you should be back on track to unlocking/jailbreaking.

        Thanks for your time!

    No luck downld any of the links on my laptop-ESET security keeps blocking it. Can’t determine version I have either. I want to say its a 3g , not a 3gs phone, so that might be why its fubar’d.
    Any suggestions?
    I will say though, your video was instructional, good job.

    After Hacktivating your phone if it shows no service install ultrasnow from cydia through wifi or manually……..Turn off the 3g and cell data option off and then turn the phone off, turn it back on and then off again , Signals will come 🙂
