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

iOS 9 and 8.4.1 do not have jailbreaks. You can use Cydia Impactor if you need to un-jailbreak an 8.1-8.4 device without restoring.
TaiG provides an iOS 8.4 and 8.3 untethered jailbreak. Check @taig_jailbreak, @saurik, and /r/jailbreak for news and 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 ..
