Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.3, 8.2, and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.3, 8.2, or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

Hi, I purchased an iPhone 3GS that was stuck on activation screen, I installed Cydia, iPad baseband 06.15.00 but the phone still reads No Service.

I have ran a checmend report which confirms the iPhone is not stolen or blocked.

Ive no idea what network the phone was on originally.

Any help would be appreciated :)

EDIT: I really need to get this working, jailbreaking/unlocking is not that important, I just want it to get a signal.

Simply putting the iPad baseband on it doesn't unlock it, you need to install ultrasn0w via cydia. After that I would recommend downgrading the baseband to 5.13 with redsn0w ("downgrade from iPad baseband" in the jailbreak menu).

Hello Folks …yipeeee …!!! I was able to get out of this finally ” NO SERVICE / SEARCHING..” on ios 6 3GS firmware – 6.0.1 BB 5.13.04

Steps :

1) Cydia > SOURCES > EDIT > ADD > Enter Cydia / APT URL ”

Install ultrasn0w fixer for 6.0 Install ultrasn0w

Once done , just restart using same JUST BOOT ” method using redsn0w ( redsn0w_win_0.9.15b3)

If you get OR unable to open cydia Or if Cydia is crashing

just use RedSnow 0.9.13 dev 4 (redsn0w_win_0.9.13dev4) for ios 6 .

Steps :

  1. Run redsn0w file
  2. Go to Extras
  3. click on Select IPSW
  4. Select ios and open it
  5. Click on Just Boot rest is all I assume you shud e aware of …DFU mode n bla ..bla ..
