    yes sure i used these links and youtube videos

    sites in order:

    1) I updated/restored to 4.2.1 and jailbroke using these directions, except i used 0.9.6 b6 instead of b5 but i don't think it matters

    http://www.maggadget.com/guide-how-...-1-on-iphone-3g-and-iphone-3gs-using-redsn0w/

    2) Then I deactivated with the same 0.9.6 b6 and selected deactivate

    http://www.jailbreakguides.com/foru...-fix-push-notifications-and-battery-drainage/


    3) and then i unlocked from the directions at the bottom of this link (same link as number 1)

    http://www.maggadget.com/guide-how-...-1-on-iphone-3g-and-iphone-3gs-using-redsn0w/


    BTW i don't think it matters if you did 2 or 3 first.


    I also checked youtube videos to make sure.

    1) to update/restore/jailbreak

    2) to deactivate with SAM

    3) to unlock

    Windows version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOIpwIzimw4&feature=channel

    Macversion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gP6smWHvtq8&feature=channel

    It sounded like the SAM author already assumed that phones would have been unlocked via ultrasnow, and so he scripted his thing to be done after a phone had already been ultrasnowed. And doing it all in that order - pwnage, ultrasn0w, SAM - worked for me.

    You guys seem to be doing it 1-3-2, not 1-2-3.

    Yeah I was also wondering what order I should do first too but I saw some people commenting on youtube and other sites that doing SAM after ultras 0w still didn't fix their battery and on the website I used it said to do after. I think he also assumed that anyone with hacktivated phone on old versions can just restore. I did it 1-2-3 / redsnow,Ultrasnow, and SAM and that worked for me too. It works either way.
