How to fix some mysterious problems.

I have downloaded both iOs 5.1.1 and iOs 6.0.1 in case one does not work as before I had that happen and thats why Im sending this message for help.

I was told on a site to download redsnow the version is redsn0w_win_0.9.13


I was told told on the same site to download iExplorer 3 but I dont know what for.

Can someone help with guidance as firstly, I reset my iPhone 3GS but now it only displays the screen to do emergency calls. I tried going into itunes which says my phone is up to date (even though I cannot access the phone!) but iTunes begins but does not finish updating my phone so it works again. I have this idea to jailbreak as I live abroad with an english iPhone and no sim card. No one can help here, can you?

Are you trying to downgrade your iPhone from 6.X down to 5.1.1? If so you're not going to be able to do this unless you have your 5.1.1 SSH blobs which from the sounds of it, I doubt you do.

no im abroad, I have an english iphone. it was part of orange the mobile operator but i threw away the sim card thinking I could insert a new card here abroad. they cant do that, and they told me they cant jailbreak it neither. orange dont give the code to unlock the phone!

Im not trying to downgrade. I think 5.1.1 or the 6 will actually upgrade. the iOS was somehting like 4.1.1 but I cant remember and I cant access my phone. I just want to unlock my phone to put a sim in and use it here where i am. any suggestions, sorry for talking so much!

So by unlock do you actually mean get into the phone. There is a password you don't know the password too?
