    Quite simple really, I’m planning to Jailbreak my 3GS using 0.9.10b4 redsn0w using custom 5.0.1 IPSW created also by redsn0w. As the phones locked to AT&T and we don’t have that network here in the UK, will redsn0w hacktivate my iPhone? If it doesn’t... How can I create a custom 5.0.1 IPSW to preserve baseband, that’s untethered, and will hacktivate my device.

    Thanks in advance guys!

    Redsn0w hacktivates your phone, what is your present BB?

    If it is 1 of the BB that unlock with ultrasn0w, you should be good to go with your custom ipsw.

    Other wise you need to use the 06.15 BB from the ipad.

    Thanks for your reply. Unfortunately as the phone isn't activated I don't know what the baseband version is... Once I've restored the custom IPSW created with redsn0w I'll then be able to find out and take it from there...

    Thanks for your help!!

    Plug it into tiny umbrella. That should tell you what you need to know regardless of activation.
