mostly the tools like absinthe for untethered, they need your iphone to be activated, by means that it is done with the setup. how about for the iphones that cant be used because of carrier locks.
iphone 4 (i always cant pass the activation screen) locked carrier does it need to be activated first before jailbreaking? if i jailbreaked my iphone using redsnow (for activation purposes), can i still use the tool so i can be untethered?
Depends on your firmware version, etc. If you activated using redsn0w, and selected the "Installl Cydia" option, then your phone is already jailbroken. On an iPhone 4, I recommend turning on the "Use DFU Ramdisk Method" option in the preferences of redsn0w.
To answer your question, yes, you can.
