How to fix some mysterious problems.

So I was trying to jailbreak an old iphone 3G in order to unlock it and use it on cinci bell, and I encountered some huge problems. When i started Greenpois0n and followed the first few steps, after i held the home and sleep button the iphone turns off and when i release the sleep and hold the home the iphone just doesn't turn back on or do anything. I had to hard reset like 13 times in order to get the phone back on, and i tried several times and the same thing kept happening. Anyone have any ideas? Also, is there an easier way to unlock it?

iPhone 3G is jailbroken for life using the latest applicable redsn0w (0.9.6rc8). You can unlock with ultrasn0w if you have BB 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, 05.13.04, or you have to use iPad BB 06.15.00 if you have a newer iPhone BB installed. GPS functionality may be compromised if you use the iPad BB...

You can find instructions for upgrading your baseband to 06.15.00 at one of these links (Be sure to read the warnings!)

If you've got a mac use the newest redsn0w and if you've got windows use sn0wbreeze. These will create you a custom firmware (if you saved your old shsh blobs etc. via cydia or tinyumbrella) and you will still have your old unlockable baseband with the new version ;).
