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

evasi0n7 can jailbreak iOS 7.0-7.0.6 untethered. p0sixspwn can jailbreak iOS 6.1.3-6.1.5 untethered (see here for 6.1.6).
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.

I had a AT&T Iphone 3GS, I was travelling abroad so got it jail broken so that i can use the local carrier of that country, it worked there pretty well, but when i came back inserted the original AT&T sim and upgraded to IOS 6 and restored it, it gives me an error message "Cannot Activate Iphone 3GS".

when you insert the simcard, is it recognizing it? at the first screen where it says iPhone in the gray background, press the i in the circle, check if both info are there, IMEI and ICCID you should see 2 rows with a bunch of numbers. also so you get any signal. or no service or just a flat line etc etc.?

Just tell me if you see both rows of information, if both rows have numbers or if either one of them says uknown or is empty or it says anything else besides numbers.

Ok so we can rule out hardware and baseband failure. Now when you updated it to ios6, did you use the update button on itunes while the phone was on or the restore buttone while the phone was on. Or did you put it on DFU or recovery before restoring?

(02 Jan '13, 13:41) GHOSTYAIRO GHOSTYAIRO's gravatar image

I used the update button first time and then tried all the above mentioned options with the same result.

ok let me rule out one more thing before we continue, in the info I told you befre, tell me the IMEI it's the 1st row.

(02 Jan '13, 13:51) GHOSTYAIRO GHOSTYAIRO's gravatar image

I now you can see it, I wanted to run it on the system to rule out any problem on Apple servers, (activation related issues on their part or referent to that specific IMEI number.

Thanks to all for the responses, here is what worked for me:

  1. Download latest Redsnow
  2. Download IOS 6.0.0 (Not 6.0.1)
  3. Open Redsnow and select extras
  4. Click IPSW and select IOS6
  5. Go back and select Jail break.
  6. Select Cydia and IPAD baseband
  7. After DFU Mode and upload.
  8. select IPSW again and click just boot
  9. Install Cydia packages and it worked with any SIM.
