    Hey everyone, my friend just bought a brand new iPhone 4 that's already activated off eBay. It's not jailbroken or unlocked, but it's still on iOS 4.1 (8B117). I tried to jailbreak it with PwnageTool and using a custom ispw file, but then iTunes won't restore it, saying it can't be restored to that version. After using TinyUmbrella, it only has SHSH bobs for 4.2.1. Is there any other way for us to jailbreak it?

    We are not able to use it as a phone unless it's unlocked, since we're not living in America as you guys know. Any ideas? Any help greatly appreciated.

    You can jist run Redsnow, Liner1an or Greenpoison to JB 4.1, but you probably wnt be able to unlock the phone since it probably has 2.10 baseband.

    This iPhone is an AT&T iPhone. If I run redsn0w or those other suggestions, would it become deactivated?
