helppp so i recently jailbroke my 3gs for the first time (on 6.1.6), and don't have a stock sim, so redsnow automatically hactivated the phone for me ( i think), i then unlocked with ultrasnow. Since i was having the "connect to itunes for push notifications" issue, i set out to use SAM to do a simulated activation. Problem is.. as soon SAM installed from CYDIA my phone rebooted or resprung and i was stuck at the activation screen.. so i tried bypassing by calling 112, and holding sleep, but when i canceled the power off, i was still on the dialing screen and ending the call just took me back to activation... Next i tried redsnow jb without any options selected and partway through the jailbreak i read something about repairing a volume with limited repair tools and then got an error which just said to reboot and power off by sliding the red bar and then retry the jb. So i reset the phone with sleep and home buttons, but now i'm stuck in a reboot loop.. I just see the apple logo for a while, then it disappears and then comes back.. For more background: i had a 3gs on 5.0.1, restored to latest (6.1.6) with itunes, used redsnow to fix my bb (->6.15 -> 5.13.04) then installed cydia with redsnow. installed p0sixspwn through cydia, then ultrasnow through cydia. Everything was running except msgs, which i fixed by entering my carrier's message center number. after that i started the SAM fix above... only other app i installed through cydia is SBSettings Where do I go from here? is it normal for a SAM install to do this?
