How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hello, First of all sorry if my question has already got an answer. I am kinda new for jailbreaking, so I've got an Iphone 3GS from US, and of course when I put my sim into it says "no service". So I went through jailbreaking it. I used the last version of redsn0w, after a few fail attempts, I upgraded my Iphone trough Itunes to the last IOS 5.1.1 then I jailbreaked it with redsn0w, following some web sources, when it comes to the stage - when you have to chose "install cydia" I ignored the warning message and also installed "install Ipad baseband". After that I used cydia and it all seemed working fine, my SIM card recognized. But here the BIG problem, when I restart my phone it just stucks on apple's logo, and I have to use again redsn0w's "just restart now" in order to load Iphone. It is very unuseful to use redsn0w every time, especially if your phone's battery in off and you don't have computer (( So Iam thinking now to downgrade or something .. Thanks in advance.

Install Rocky Racoon 5.1.1 Untether from Cydia to untether, you may have to boot tethered to get to Cydia.

You mean boot an Iphone, open cydia and install "rocky racoon" as an app?

  1. put your iPhone in DFU. 2. boot tethered using redsn0w. 3. open cydia and install Rocky Racoon. Your iPhone will now be untethered. You will likely still have to sort out your hacktivation problem.
