    Hi, I am looking for some advice on jail breaking. I recently bought an iPhone 3GS, which was jailbroken. Up until now it was running fine in iOS 4 Software, until today when we decided to upgrade it to iOS 5 software. Now it will not accept the SIM. Does this mean it is locked again, and if so, can I re-jailbreak it again? Personally I don’t care if the phone is jailbroken or not, but I just need it to be unlocked. Also, I am not sure which iOS 5 software version has been installed.
    Help would be much appreciated.

  • dipsy_d

    I have an iPhone 3G. It was purchased in the US and then brought to NZ and jailbroken and unlocked for use here (it originally was my sons and then my own) One day I updated it (big mistake now I know), and then stopped working. My son reset it to factory settings. Now all it shows is a screen saying to insert a Sim, and an emergency call keypad. I have gone through a diff website and gone through the steps to jailbreak using Pwange tool. I get as far as putting phone into DFU and iTunes does all the restore stuff etc. At the end of this process it pops up with the same old message, no sim etc, and clicking to open my pwange custom restore doesn’t do anything. I also tried downloading Absinthe but it does not support my device. Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do now?? Oh, and I am on a Mac

    Hi, my 13 year old daughter has taken it upon herself to try and jailbreak her iPhone 5.0. As a result the phone no longer works. Is there a way to reset the phone back to it’s original out-of-the box non-jailbroken state?

    • http://www.iphonehacks.com iPhoneHacks

      Yes, you can restore your iPhone to revert back to the factory settings.

      • Mike Z

        I know this is a stupid question, but can you pint me to instructions on how to do that?

        • Mike Z

    Hi…I googled the entire internet for this, and apparently there’s no l’ve for people in my position so I’m here to ask for some much needed help.

    I have an iPod 4G on 5.1.1, jailbroken, and would like to update it to 6.1.5 safely now that it has an untethered jalbreak and since most apps now hate anything below 6. How can I do this while preserving my baseline and using redsn0w? Ive seen so many confusing things saying to use ipsw 6 for 6.1.3 etc but I’m pretty sure Apple doesn’t sign hat anymore since 6.1.5 is out…there is literally NO INFORMATION ANYWHERE on the internet about this. I only learned enough about jailbreaking to maintain my device at 5.1.1….please please please respond and consider making some sort of comprehensive guide for people like me who haven’t bought a newer iOS device or caught the first iOS6 jailbreak :/

    • Akka
