    Alright I upgraded my iphone to the newest 6.1.2 and there is a untether jailbreak for it but when I use redsn0w I get an error that says that 6.1.2 Ipsw is not supported by _0.9.15b3 redsn0w. I got the newest version of redsn0w. How else can I jailbreak my iphone?

    Redsnow currently doesn't support the untethered 6.1.2 JB.
    You need to download Evasi0n like TJ said above.

    You need an official sim card to activate.

    Well thank you captain obvious.

    (facepalm)

    Alright I will try and make myself clear and simple. I need to jailbreak and unlock my iphone and I am currently on 6.1.2 and redsn0w will not work for the ipsw and evasion only works on activated iphones. So does anyone know on what I can use to jailbreak my iphone without using an original sims card.

    You wil need shsh blobs for that device for 6.1
    You're sure that 3GS is compatible with the iPad bb right?
    If not you can ruin the phone.

    Post the first 5 digits of your iPhones serial number and we will let you know.
    But from the sounds of it doesn't look good.

    While redsn0w doesn't support 6.1.2, 6.1.2 can be jailbroken with redsn0w if the user selects the 6.0.0 IPSW. Not only is the redsn0w untethered jailbreak more stable, the phone starts up much quicker than an Evasi0n jailbroken device. Plus you get other goodies like verbose boot and real boot logos.

    Interesting.
    But would that work on a new bootrom 3GS?
    The OP might not know exactly what he has.

    It would be a tethered jailbreak. redsn0w would detect the bootrom and apply the correct jailbreak. Once jailbroken via redsn0w's tethered jailbreak, one can install the Evasi0n jailbreak from Cydia to make it untethered.

    Perfect.
    Thanks for the intel:)
    From the sounds of it with no imei and blacked out Bluetooth and wifi sounds like he made a boo boo.

    My good friend, It works. Thank you all, for helping me out even do I was an ass from one of my posts but I was frustrated that it didn't work. Again thanks. :)

    This is what I did. : :) incase anyone else gets stuck on this problem.

    First: I made a clean restore on the IOS 6.1.2
    Second: I used redsn0w_0.9.15b3 for the jailbreak
    Third: I used the IPSW 6.0.0 becuase 6.1.2 is not supported by this version of redsn0w
    Fourth: I installed cydia and the Ipad baseband
    AND BINGO wifi was back and everything else was back to normal and I got a untetherd iphone 3gs, fully jailbroken and unlocked. :D

    Very nice bro.
    Yes, now do what TJ posted and downgrade from the ipad bb. You will still stay unlocked and untethered.
    Just a better option than the ipad baseband.
