How to fix some mysterious problems.

I hope I am not in the wrong place to ask this question. I jailbroken my iphone 3gs on ios6.1.6 yesterday. and this message keeps popping up every time I open a app that requests for push notifications, "Connect to itunes to enable Push Notifications" how do I fix this without having to lose my jb and unlock?

I have found the following solutions so far that do not work.

Reset Network Settings -> This makes all internet apps to crash when opened. so NOT WORKING. Disconnect Itunes(from settings->Itunes and App Stores) and Reconnect -> Tried that, NOT WORKING. Deactivate via redsn0w then activate using itunes -> can't do that. I don't have original SIM. NOT VIABLE. Switch Push notifications of particular app to ALERTS -> NOT WORKING.

Is there any other safer solution?

Push are best fixed with Original sim.

Since you have hactivated your iPhone 3GS, try installing SAM via Cydia.

I just installed SAM from the source given on that link, Now I am in the wizard before jailbreaking. It is asking me to connect to itunes to activate, is this where I have to turn off the device and use redsn0w to deactivate?

-- so If this does not work I can get back to where I was right?

You need to use SAM to Deactivate.

Did you read this description. Link in the page already posted in the answer.

My phone was locked out of home screen. I couldn't go to settings to check the SAM settings. so after installing SAM it rebooted and I got the activation wizard. then I tried to deactivate using redsn0w. and then bam deactivation failed with an unkown error on my phone. Its stuck in reboot loop.

hello, sorry for reviving this again. but I read that sam doesn't work since 2010. so is there no other way to activate push notifications? if not enable the push notifications, but atleast disable the popup asking to connect to itunes?
