    This is not a troll, please help.

    My girlfriend has an iPhone 3GS, baseband 05.11.07. It is already unlocked, but the jailbreak on it is old & she can't get Cydia to work on it. We want to put a fresh jailbreak on it, get Cydia back, etc, and upgrade the software whilst preserving the carrier unlock (as we are international and can't use any US carrier).

    What to do? The iOS version on it is 3.1.2. (7D11).

    I swear this isn't a troll, if you help, we will show one picture. Please help me get out of the doghouse.

    read the stickies on here and go to iclarified.com for detailed instructions then ask questions... ;)
    you will use redsn0w to create a custom package (which will conserve BB) of the ipsw with the latest firmware 5.0.1 for the 3GS and then dfu and insert it into your girls' iPhone. You can also use sn0wbreeze if needed instead.

    Use redsn0w 0.9.10b4 to build a no baseband firmware and upgrade/restore your phone to it.

    Iclarified.com and/or redmondpie.com have step by step tutorial for you to do this.

    no, you need to conserve baseband so you need to make it custom! look at my post above.

    What does DFU mean??

    Guys,

    Redsn0w 0.9.10b4 is saved to my desktop. I honestly cannot find a tutorial explaining exactly what I am attempting to do, you provided the site that apparently gives it without the direct target. What do I do from here??

    man either you are really lazy or you are really bad at basic searching; either way I don't recommend you do anything and leave it to someone that knows more than basic computer skills...

    Here is the detailed instructions you didn't "find":

    My recommendation is to stay where you are or pay someone to do it for you. I can't believe even you were given a detail instruction and you still don't know what to do. :D

    for me the issue is not so much the hand holding, but the lack of interest of reading and trying to understand what the H he is doing, he just wants to get it done without reading beforehand.

    I did everything as instructed. I jailbroke, I saw the silly pineapple boot logo, but I still get the gray first-time apple screen and can't find cydia to try installing ultrasnow.... should i take the sim card out, i followed everything exactly as worded but it got unclear after step 14

    Really don't know what to do. I restored iTunes to my preserved BB, but I can't get the jailbreak/Cydia software on it.

    ----------

    [​IMG]

    after i preserved bb by hitting shift in itunes, selecting no bb, restarting, when i try to jailbreak, i always get the above... then phone is back in the gray itunes menu saying no sim.

    ----------

    Had to select that IPS manually, then jailbroke, now i see the jailbreak process that im used to. hope i preserved my bb right. just gotta verify that and try ultrasnow now.

    They pointed you in the right direction, otherswise you would still be stumbling in the dark.

    All the information is out there, nobody is going to hold your hand, grow up.

    I mean, anyone can see that all the right information he wanted is in this thread, otherwise one needs to learn reading comprehension hehe..
