Hi, I have bought a used 3G Iphone that had 3.1.2 on it, locked to Rogers in Canada. My plan is to make it work on Telus. I have experience updating and jailbreaking the ipod touch using a PC. Currently I am using a G4 Powerbook with OSX 10.4.11. I "Erased all content and settings" thinking I would begin fresh. Now I am stuck on the activate screen, which I was not expecting. Should I be able to jailbreak without activating? I tried both pwnage and redsnow, and downloaded using firefox the 3.1.2 ipsw (though I am not certain I didn't revert the phone to older firmware during the reset). Neither jailbreaker will recognize the ipsw (note my phone was not connected at the point of IPSW selection) I tried blackrain and it froze my mouse and the phone stuck on its reboot. I don't yet have a Telus SIM, as my telus phone is CDMA (they have a hybrid HSPA and CDMA network) and I want my phone to work until I get the iphone ready to rock. Telus apparently gives special SIMs for Iphone's which I suppose make the activation work. I don't want this SIM as it requires me to have an Iphone plan where my current plan is much better. Is there a way around activation, or can I activate with somebody else's SIM and then put a regular Telus SIM in? Pretty much I'm getting fooled by this activation process I didn't know about, and the fact I can't jailbreak for some reason. Maybe I should try a PC to jailbreak?
