    Hi guys,

    To be honest with you, i'm terribly freaked out now, but I'll try to make my siutation as clear as possible so it will make it easier for you guys to help me out.

    My iPhone
    Model 3G
    Sim Locked
    Previous Firmware: 2.1.2


    Current Phone Status
    In "emergency call" status.
    itunes wont let me do anything at all.

    What I Did
    I tried to use Snowbreeze to JB and unlock with firmware 3.1.3 (link)
    When I have done "cooking up" with a custom .ipsw file, I tried to shft+restore it with itunes but to no avail, and then...
    whats next might be the stupidest thing I have ever done (maybe), istead of the custom .ipsw file, i shift+restore the "iPhone1,2_3.1.3_7E18_Restore.ipsw" file.

    Then now I am stuck here with emergency call.

    I have tried DFU with the custom .ipsw file but "an error occurred".

    I'd really appreciate if someone could really help me out here... Millions of thanks...

    Ok, dont panic :)
    Shut down itunes and follow this tutorial. When it tell you to restore you can skip this part since you're already on official 3.1.3

    Run redsnow and point it to the official 3.1.2 ipsw and it will activate and JB your iphone.
    Then load up cydia and install ultrasnow to unlock it.
    Good luck.

    Didn't expect a reply so soon! I thought the phone would be sitting dead for weeks...

    Success!

    Mr. AppleJuice,

    Thank you so much! Everything has gone smoothly per your advice and I'd like to drop by express my gratitude.

    Anyway, for people with the same problems like I did.

    Here's the link for jailbreaking even when your phone has been locked...
    And here is the link for unlocking baseband (04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, or 05.13.04).

    Have a nice day all!

    Iris
