    Greetings -

    I've purchased a used iPhone. It did not come with a SIM card. I charged it & turned it on. I get the message NO SIM CARD INSTALLED & I also get EMERGENCY CALL message.

    I then downloaded Pwnage & followed the steps here:

    I get to the "Successfully Entered DFU Mode" step & I close the Pwnage program & launch iTunes but iTunes does not detect the phone. Any thoughts? Is there a step that Im missing?

    Here's some good news. I've managed to jailbreak the phone! Im quite happy! I used Quickpwn instead of Pwnagetool & I also used a USB hub per iClarified's instructions. Now all I need to do is unlock it & I'll be a happy man.

    So I jailbroke the phone but I still cant downgrade my baseband to 2.28. The bootloader version I have is 5.9. I followed the tutorial from iClarified to the last detail but still nothing. Any ideas?

    You need 5.8 bootloader to be able to downgrade:

    So essentially, you are SOL. Sorry.
