    hey guys, id like to go ahead and thank all who will reply. or can. this one seems to be prettyy hard.

    so. i have a 3gs, working with the ipad baseband, and ive managed to disable it by entering in the wrong code right. i've tried everything from, geckotoolkit to bypass the disabled thing. nothing. i get this error " iTunes 9 or newer is NOT installed. Could not bind to the port 2202 (make sure only one instance is running!"
    although i have itunes 10.
    but anyway thats not even the problem. i have my info backed up so im ready for a restore, yet it simply will not go into DFU mode to either restore in itunes or redsn0w.. i changed the last part of the host file to 74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com and now to 74.208.10.249.. still nothing with itunes. i get error 3194 every time.

    ive been researching for 3 days now, so i might be a bit confused somewhere. but i did a custom ispw with snowrain but i dont know where that comes into play anymore.
    i tried putting it into DFU mode with iREB and it says it was successful. yet redsn0w doesnt recognize it and itunes still gives me 3194..

    please guys, any help is appreciated.
    thanks,
    D.

    You can never restore with stock firmware from itunes an iphone that has the ipad bb installed.
    You need to create a custom ipsw using redsnow. Put your iphone in Pwned DFU mode and restore by selecting that custom ipsw.
    Then you can use redsnow again to downgrade the baseband to an unlockable version and install ultrasnow from cydia to unlock.
    Its not an easy process and it has many steps. You gotta have the latest itunes installed and the correct redsnow and firmware versions.
    Make sure you research a lot and understand what you're doing on each step.

    applejuiced thanks for your reply. made me look into a few more things that led me to use ifaith. so if anyone happens to be in the same situation thats what helped me restore.
    still not able to downgrade baseband because RS doesnt recognize it in DFU mode. but after looking it up seems i should just try it with another computer. will do. so its all good :cool:
