If your iPhone (3G or 3GS) has the stock 3.1 or 3.1.2 firmware from Apple, then you can't software unlock because the baseband has been updated through the stock firmware. You can only jailbreak.So does this tool actually unlock a 3.1 or 3.1.2 iPhone 3Gs
PwnageTool jailbreaks your iPhone. It does not unlock. I have never unlocked my iPhone because I'm fine with my AT&T account/service....So does this tool actually unlock a 3.1 or 3.1.2 iPhone 3Gs that has never been JB or Unlocked!!
It seems to say that, but I would love to hear if anyone on the forum has done this and how simple it was.
I am sat in the UAE with shiny white iPhoen 3Gs desperate to take out my O2 sim.....
I have an iPhone 3G which is currently running 3.0 JB'b with redsn0w and unlocked via ultrasn0w.If youre already jailbroken (by whatever means), you dont need to mess around with DFU mode at all. Just create (or get from a friend) your custom IPSW and Option-Restore (Shift-Restore on Windows) to it via iTunes. Dont enter DFU mode at all.
that just means if you want to upgrade to 3.1.2 then you must ensure you use a custom made ipsw from pwnagetoolI have an iPhone 3G which is currently running 3.0 JB'b with redsn0w and unlocked via ultrasn0w.
If i want to update to 3.1.2 i don't re-jailbreak?
I thought i'd have to use pwnagetool to create the custom ipsw from the official 3.1.2 ipsw?
so what you're saying is, they've made the entire process a lot easier?You still have to create a custom ipsw but you on't have to go through the whole hold the power button for 5 seconds, power and home, just home blah blah blah anymore as it works from normal... hence no need for DFU mode...
