How to fix some mysterious problems.

I upgraded my 3GS no 4.1 to 5.1 while it was on 06.15 baseband and unlocked and jailbreaked previously. after upgrade i hacktivated my phone and added ultrasnow repository but it gave error and was added . Later I found an ultrasnow fix on another repo and it was also not added because of an error that said 'some old files are used and some are unavailable'. So now, the issue is that I am unable to unlock my phone .. it is hacktivated on ios 5.1 through IPSW but no signal and no service :( Any help would be greatly appreciated

when you upodated to 5.1 was it a stock 5.1? if so you need to reflash the ipad baseband

welcome. im assuming your stitched was a stitched stock. you want it to be a stitched custom to avoid reflashing :)
