How to jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 (and fix problems). iOS 7.1 is not jailbreakable, except an unsupported tethered iPhone 4 jailbreak.
Restoring or updating will update your device to iOS 7.1 and remove your jailbreak. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 7.1 to 7.0.x.

Hey guys!

My brother got a problem with his jailbroken iPhone 3GS running 4.3.3

A friend of him tried to find out his activation-code. He inserted a wrong code several times which deactivated his phone a few times. First time for 1 minute, then 5 minutes, then 15 minutes, then 60 minutes and NOW it is TOTALLY deactivated!

It says "connect with itunes" but nothin happens when i do it.

So, my question: How can i "reactivate" his phone? Especially without losing any data.

Connect iPhone to computer that you have done iTunes sync before. It will give you unlimited tries to enter passcode. It will also allow you to backup data and restore firmware to remove passode lock.
