@sai-sai You have a 3GS made in 2008??? Anyway, open your own question, don't hijack someone else's.

Untethered is already out. Unlock depends on first five of the serial.

If you have more questions about this 3gs, keep them in this one, no need to open multiples about the same phone

not sure why p0sixpwn isn't working for you, its working for others just fine. And no, you would need to tell me the first five of the SERIAL not the imdi number. imdi and SERIAL are not the same and need the first five of the SERIAL

(27 Feb '14, 20:03) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image

That happens when your 3gs is old bootrom which you don't need p0sixspwn since it is already untethered. What are the first 5 of the serial?

(27 Feb '14, 20:04) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

88950 first five serial number sir

(27 Feb '14, 20:05) rightt rightt's gravatar image

(27 Feb '14, 20:10) rightt rightt's gravatar image

And if my phone have old bootrom and already untethered then why its not opening without booting from redsnow? Its need just boot feom redsnow

(27 Feb '14, 20:14) rightt rightt's gravatar image

your phone is NOT old bootrom

(27 Feb '14, 20:14) theiphoneguy ♦ theiphoneguy's gravatar image

Ok , you mean my phone new bootrom and i must install posixspwn but its cant working, and what about unlock??

(27 Feb '14, 20:16) rightt rightt's gravatar image

What version of p0sixspwn got installed? Run f0recast from to confirm bootrom.

(27 Feb '14, 20:39) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

f0recast says : Jailbreakable? = YES, UNLOCKABLE? = YES, Untethered? = NO (Unless old Bootrom) whats that means??????

and i installed p0sixspwn version v1.4-1

(28 Feb '14, 15:16) rightt rightt's gravatar image

i confirmed that my bootrom is new, now what can i do???

(28 Feb '14, 15:30) rightt rightt's gravatar image

p0sixspwn version v1.4-1 is the current version. I've successfully untethered my iPod Touch 4 with it on iOS 6.1.6, so it's really odd that it's not working for you. Try uninstalling it, rebooting tethered with redsn0w, then reinstalling p0sixspwn.

(28 Feb '14, 15:37) spockers ♦♦ spockers's gravatar image

Spockers i love u man :) its finally works , problem is ( i installed SAM with queue with p0sixspwn, when i restore 6.1.6 again then JB again and install posixspwn its works, now what i do for sim unlock???

(28 Feb '14, 16:50) rightt rightt's gravatar image

Modem firmware 06.15.00 SERIAL 1st five 88950 Ios 6.1.6

How can i sim unlock??? Before i upgrade to 6.1.6 i am using 4.1 with ultrasnow & its worked fine...

(28 Feb '14, 16:53) rightt rightt's gravatar image

Anybody help

(28 Feb '14, 17:31) rightt rightt's gravatar image

You corrupted the 6.15 baseband by restoring to stock ipsw. You need to downgrade baseband to 5.13 using redsn0w.

(28 Feb '14, 18:09) justinred ♦ justinred's gravatar image

How to do that? :( and after downgrade BB ultrasn0w will work on ios 6.1.6?? plz tell me how to downgrade BB to 5.13.00??
