    Hello,

    A friend of me who didn't know his phone was unlocked and jailbreaked(ya i know) upgrade to normal version of iOS via iTunes. His phone is now a brick.

    He want me to fix it, but I never jailbreaked a iPhone, even more a brick iPhone.

    Can anyone tell me the good way to bring back his phone back?

    There are few things you can check;

    1. Check to see if this phone has SHSH blobs save. If it does, then downgrade it to the lower firmware where you can jailbreak.

    2. If it doesn't have SHSH blob save, then try to downgrade to 4.1. Few days ago, Apple still signs 4.1 for 3GS, if Apple still does, then Itunes will allow you to downgrade it to 4.1.

    3. The above 2 methods only allow you to downgrade to lower firmware so you can jailbreak it untether. For unlock, it is a whole new story. You can't unlock it unless you put the ipad baseband on it.

    Search for consequences about the Ipad baseband on 3G/3GS and inform to your friend and ask him whether if he wants to move forward or not.
