How to fix some mysterious problems.

I've update to iOS 6.1.2 and want to jailbreak with Evasi0n 1.4. It says... device not activated...

Redsn0w 0.9.15b3 says:

Missing Keys.plist

Device: iPhone4 ECID: xxxxxx Build: iPhone3,1_6.1.2_10B146

How can I activate my iPhone 4 after updating to 6.1.2?

when your iphone is locked though a mobile provider you have to use the upcoming sn0wbreeze tool to create a custom firmware which hacktivates your iphone. i think this will be the only way. note that sn0wbreeze use the evasi0n package from cydia. so it's the same jailbreak but with an other method.

Sn0wbreeze 9.10 will fix this now?!

i think iH8sn0w will release an update in the next few days. it's even that simple just like the evasi0n update i think. But if you cannot activate your iphone and it's factory locked by your provider and you have not preserved your baseband, then you only can use your iphone 4 as an ipod touch.

IF it IS factory unlocked, then it isn't necessary to hacktivate your iphone. in this case i would try to restore the iphone and try to activate it.

First time since 1.0.3, that Apple got me :(

Well in the meanwhile (waiting for iH8sn0w), I'll use a RIM device!

If anyone else has an option... feel free...

These steps dont activate the iPhone :(

So far I have an iPhone 4 + 6.1.2 -which evasi0n says is already jailbreaked, but iTunes can't activate it. STRANGE CASE!

Comme les autres dit; pour l'instant oublier 6.1.2 avec hacktivation sn0wbreeze. Je suis aussi entrien de chercher un solution. Mais je installer 6.0 comme nouveau et attend le nouveau sn0wbreeze.

Does the new sn0wbreeze 9.10 fix this?

This would work with a 4S?
