    Hello, i just bought my first iDevice 2days ago and i was pretty scammed. It is a 16GB Iphone 3GS with old Bootrom, locked on Orange France. I bought it as"neverlock" with version 5.1.1. I wanted to clear al the useless things that first owner had on the device so i made the mistake to Restore my iphone. Now it tells me that he needs Activation, having 6.1.3 version.
    I found a guide called: "6.1.3 unthethered jailbreak/unlock done 100% successful (old bootrom)" on google... (i dont know if i should post link here) and i tryed to use it. In it was written that i have to restore my iphone to 4.1 (because i am having 6.1.3) with snowbreeze, firstly and then i started to follow the tutorial, i downloaded a 4.1 ios ispw, then inserted it into snowbreeze which created me a customized file on desktop, then i entered the phone into Pwned DFU and i SHIFT+CLICKED Restore in iTunes then i got an unexpected error, error 20 and my iphone was blocked in Recovery mode so I had to restore it again to 6.1.3 to turn it on. I am really puzzled with this iPhone, if you can help me i'll be really grateful! Thank you in advance.

    P.S1. I read a lost of topics and tips, but everybody has pretty different problems than me, most of them i saw they were having new BR, i am having OldBR (iDetector and redsn0w told me this). Also i will be really grateful if you can tell me the exactly steps which i have to pass to gain a 5.1.1 or 6.1.3 untethered jailbreaked unlocked iPhone.
    P.S2. I am really sorry for my bad english.

    can you download tinyumbrella and check if you have iOS 5.1.1 shsh blobs?

    Regardless, restore to iOS 6.1.3 (with a clean ipsw) and just jailbreak with redsn0w. I believe it has hacktivation built into the program

    If not, then you will have to make a custom ipsw using sn0wbreeze that includes hacktivation

    once jailbroken, you can go into cydia and install ultrasn0w (make sure it's one of the compatible baseband!) and your phone should be unlocked

    use redsn0w to jailbreak iOS 6.1.3
    use absinthe v2.0.4 to jailbreak iOS 5.1.1

    don't know why, but tinyumbrella don't work on my pcu, but i dont think shsh blobs are needed because i have Old Bootrom. I checked with Device Manager , with iDetector and redsn0w .

    So, my iphone config is:
    baseband modem firmware: 05.16.08
    Version: 6.1.3
    Jailbreaked with redsn0w 0.9.15b3
    Phone is locked in Orange France.
    Old Bootrom.

    I can't use ultrasn0w because is not compatible with 05.16.080 baseband.
    Do you have any ideas what i should do? If you do, please explain me what to do step by step, like you teach an old man how to use Facebook on Android, please be very clear.

    old bootrom is only for untethered jailbreak
    shsh blobs are still required for restoring to unsigned firmware

    upgrade to the ipad baseband using redsn0w (via the jailbreak option, uncheck install cydia as you already have that installed) and then downgrade to the 5.13.xx baseband once you're on the ipad baseband, this will allow you to unlock the device using ultrasn0w. It might take a few tries before you downgrade from the ipad baseband

    your device should be fine to be flashed to the ipad baseband (6.15.00) as it's before week 35 of 2011

    Oh boy, it WORKED! And its really cool that i am having 6.1.3 jailbreaked untheathered device! :D Thanks a lot. I have one more question:
    Do you know why when i try to send a sms(mesage) to some persons from the same Operator (Mobile Provider) mesages are not delivered, but i have enough credit to send them? Happens just to a few person, because to others i can send without any problem.

    you are on the 5.13.xx baseband, right? no problem, glad to help!

    not too sure about the messaging problem, might be carrier related
