Exclamation iPhone 4 iOS 6.1 - How to Activate

Guys, I'm having problems with the recent update.

I'm trying to install iOS 6.1 from scratch and jailbreak/activate after. Can you guys guide me?

I'm able to update/restore to iOS 6.1 without problems. Then I try to run Evasi3n to Jailbreak but says I need to activate my iPhone first.

How do I activate my iPhone 4 in iOS 6.1?

You need an official sim to activate your iPhone.

I was able to activate it using Redsn0w but some apps didn't work (Safari, Maps). Tried restoring it again and says exploit failed so I'm trying from scratch to see what can I do.

Now I'm trying to build a custom IPSW with sn0wbreeze.
