    I'm trying to unlock an iphone 3g running 3.0 firmware. I activated and jailbroke it through Pwnage Tool. When jailbreaking and unlocking 2gs from this point all I have had to do is pop in the non atnt sim and will read it.

    This seems to not be the case with the 3g. After I put the T-Mobile sim in it will just show the carrier bars with no signal and no t-mobile logo. What I am doing wrong here??? :confused:

    I ran redsnow and got through the process alright, but during the jailbreaking it stalled for a while on "installing activation bundle." when the phone booted the only app i had/have is cydia. anybody seen this??

    When you run redsn0w, if it hangs up, just unplug the phone for 2 seconds, then plug it back in.

    Get a tutorial as all this stuff should be in the tutorial. (iClarified)

    Why 3.0? Seriously either update to 3.1.2 with Pwnage Tool. Or update to 3.1.2 in iTunes, jailbreak/unlock with Blackra1n/blacksn0w.

    To unlock your phone after upgrading to 3.0 and jailbreaking with redsn0w, you need to 1) open Cydia, 2) add the repository repo666.ultrasn0w.com and 3) install ultrasn0w. It's that simple.
