Help with jailbreaking and Cydia for iPhones, iPads, and iPod touches.

iOS 8.2 and iOS 8.1.3 are not jailbreakable. There is no way to downgrade from iOS 8.2 or 8.1.3 to earlier versions.
Instructions for jailbreaking iOS 8.0-8.1.2. See /r/jailbreak on Reddit, @PanguTeam, and @TaiG_jailbreak for updates.

My nephew just moved back from the U.S. and has his AT&T 3GS. Tried to unlock so that he can use his SIM card from Blackberry.

Restored it to 4.3.3, jailbroke and installed Ultrasn0w via Cydia. Now, No network connection when the new SIM is installed.

Baseband is on 06.15.00, have tried removing and re-inserting SIM, nothing. Re-installed ultrasn0w and still nothing.

Even tried iPhone Explorer, but cannot see a media directory.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

If you're on T-Mobile turn off 3G, also try reinstalling Ultrasn0w.

Remove Ultrasn0w and reboot your iPhone before attempting to reinstall ultrasn0w again. Also report back what version of ultrasn0w you have.

by reboot i mean complete shut down by holding the power button until the red "slide to turn off" comes up.... you should slide ofcourse :-)

only a reboot (restart) will fix this.

and i hope you've installed ultrasn0w version 1.2.3

Yes, had ultrasn0w version 1.2.3. He was with AT&T.

Ended up getting it to work but needed to downgrade to O.S. 4.1

For some reason the latest Ultrasn0w 1.2.3 is not always stable, and i have found that earlier versions were stable and using one of them has solved the same issue for other people before.

You can not get the earlier versions from the repository anymore, however i have kept copies of these older versions which might be useful to you or others, the links are below:

Ultrasn0w 1.2.2

Ultrasn0w 1.2.1
