So I have an iPhone 3GS. I have been having the same battle with this phone for days now! It was inititally jailbroken, and was unlocked. It was old my phone, and I lent it to a friend who broke their phone and needed a replacement. Unfortunately they clicked update on the phone, and the phone was updated to IOS 6.1. He has a Rogers account, and the phone is Factory locked to FIDO in Canada. So, I figured I could simply jailbreak the phone again, then unlock it again. Not the case. I was told there is no unlock for IOS 6.1. So I then was going to try and downgrade the IOS from 6.1 to 5.1.1. That was a massive headache, as iTunes (which I despise using!!!) gave me error after error after error. First it was 1394. So I did the host change for that. Then it was 1601, 1602 and 1604. So I downloaded iREB and did a fix for that. Next came 3194. So then I was informed to go into TinyUmbrella and uncheck one of the settings to fix it.. well, that setting was greyed out! So.. after all that, I was going to jailbreak the phone again, using evasi0n. So I re-set the phone (as I have in the past to remove any jailbreaks) and BAM! The phone now will not activate. Not in iTunes and no over WiFi. Is there ANYTHING I can do to get it activated? I understand that it likely because it was re-set that it will not activate. Is there no way around this? My friend is still stuck using a blackberry that rarely works, and I would like to get this figured out so I can either A: jailbreak and unlock the thing or B: Tell him to find a new phone. Personally, I would much rather get this figured out.. as it is still a great phone, and would like to know I have it in case my new one ever needs repairs, or dies. Thanks in advance for any help!!
