    I switched to T-Maybe back in October for financial reasons and I'd like to use my iPhone again.

    I've managed to jailbreak it, but my wifi card is kaput. I downloaded the Ultrasn0w files and diskaid so I could manually input the files. That hasn't worked at all.

    If I need to I can restore the phone and start back from scratch.

    Anyone have any tips or guides I may be able to use to achieve my goal?

    Much thanks!

    EDIT: so blacksn0w seems to have irreversibly bricked my phone :(

    Get your wifi fixed. It's going to be hard to do it all thru ssh.
    Depending on what firmware and baseband you're on you will need different programs to use.

    See the problem is I was using blacksn0w and it locked up during the jailbreaking process. I had to forcequit and now all that shows up on my iphone is a cartoon picture of Steve Jobs saying something in Russian

    Google DFU mode, you will get hundreds of how to guides. Also unless you saved your SHSH blobs you have no hope if going to 3.1.3, if that is not the case someone correct me.

    For an iPhone 3G you don't need shsh's for 3.1.3 or firmware below that. 4.0+ you do need them though.

    Kick your iPhone out of recovery with TinyUmbrella.

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that.
    You can do it manually thru ssh or the easier way like my friend mentioned above is use someones AT&T sim to install what you need thru Cydia.

    Will that do anything to their simcard? I don't think they would forgive me if I ruined it.

    No. Using their sim card won't do anything. You just need the internet connection to install ultrasn0w from Cydia.

    Basically what's happening, is every time I try to restore the phone, I get the 1015 Unknown error crap.

    That's what stopped the from being jailbroken

    You need TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery like I said previously.
