Hello ppl, I got an Iphone 4 IOS 6.1.3 from a friend, and he bought it in USA, but he was dumb and updated to 6.1.3 losing his jailbreak and the activation... So I google a bit and found out that I could use Redsnow or snowbreeze to make a tethered jailbreak and hacktivate... ok so far no problem, the point is, when i try to use snowbreeze i can't restore the ipsw from itunes since o get that error 3194, and when I go through all the process with redsnow, it reboots but doesn't activate, it keeps in the welcome logo, I'm kind lost now, can somebody help ?

Thank you all

MD128BR/A - iPhone4New Firmware: 6.1.3 Baseband: 04.12.05-ICE_2_13

fwiw MD128BR is not an iPhone model available in the USA, this model is sold exclusively in Brasil.

@Rambobaiao Although a MD128 6.1.3 04.12.05 can potentially be jailbreaked and (h)activated, are you aware that it can't be software unlocked?

P.S. It's a 8GB 3,1 (not 3,2).

@Rambobaiao There are online services that can identify original carrier via IMEI.

Btw; have you saved its SHSH blobs with iFaith 1.5.9's dump feature?

Hmm not really, i just got the phone already locked, trying my way to unlock it, i could just blind shoot some carrier unlock... that's not so expensive... but i may try different sim cards right, from several different carriers ?

@Rambobaiao Is this JBQA faq entry's Option D of assistance?

iTunes no longer allows custom ipsw's from sn0wbreeze. To activate, insert original carrier SIM card and restore in iTunes to standard ipsw which is likely 7.0.3. If you do not have the original carrier SIM and have no intention of using the original carrier. You will need to have the device unlocked. Contact the carrier or a reputable third party for assistance. Once unlocked you will be able to use any GSM SIM card to activate the device as well as use the device on any GSM network world wide. Best wishes and good luck!

I saw plenty of videos of ppl using Redsn0w to jailbreak and also hackativating... feel a bit dumb about it, looks so easy and smooth, yet when i do, it doesn't activate, it goes through all the process ;/ what looked a bit strange it's that when it's loading the first time with the pineapple with the bar it goes too fast... Crap... I'm also not sure about witch ios should i use for JB the iPhone3,1 6.0 10A403 ipsw or iPhone3,2 6.0 10A403 ipsw ... when i try to use redsnow and the Iphone3,1 6.0 it doesn't work it freezes. Thank you!

Videos are often misleading and should not be used as reference when jailbreaking an iOS device. Proper identification of your device and tools as well as using current resources are much more likely to be helpful.
