    I have an iphone 3g which I unfortunately failed to update to 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01 (pretty sure). Now the iPhone fully locked in only emergency mode and I can not use it. Is there anything I can do? Can I jailbreak it and use it as an ipod, eventullt also unlock it?

    Yep run Redsn0w 0.9.4 on it. Make sure you have a 3.1.2 (not 3.1.3) ipsw downloaded for it to work (download it here in the Downloads section).

    Not right now. Youre lookin at unlocking (most likely) next month.

    You know what you can do though, just for the hell of it, is to download Fuzzyband from Cydia (there are two, get the one that is NOT for 2.x--it will tell you in the description).

    Fuzzyband will tell you what your bootloader is. If it is 5.08, let it downgrade your baseband. Then you can use Ultrasn0w to unlock (add repo666.ultrasn0w.com to Cydia sources).

    If it tells you its bootloader 5.09 or 6.x it wont let you downgrade so youre out of luck for now.

    Give it a go and let me know. Its rare to get a 5.08 iPhone 3G, but hey I got one so its not impossible

    Just dont get your hopes up cuz of this. Its just a bonus if it does work for you. If not, Im sorry.

    If your phone is stuck, put it in DFU mode and shift+restore it again.

    i just lold soooo hard right now.

    I just restored my iphone and now it suddenly works with 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01. I have no idea how it suddenly work but thats good

    but now the iphone is like before, without cydia, that i wanted in the first place. How can i get cydia on my iphone (SAFE solution) without messing it up and being not able to use the iphone?

    Umm did you jailbreak it yet with Redsn0w? If so and it doesnt have Cydia, you have to restore again and jailbreak it again. Running the jailbreak again wont do any good without a restore.

    I just restored it with the original firmware (in the "iPhone Software Updates" folder) and then when it was done the phone was jailbreaked and unlocked no idea how it happend. Didnt use redsn0w.

    I really want cydia on my iphone so i need to restore the iphone to get it, but first i need to find out what bootloader i got. Is there any program that i can download from app store to find out what version i got?

    You restored to a custom firmware.

    You need to download firmwares from the site so you have a clean firmware to use and jailbreak with Redsn0w

    Sorry lol "the site"=here on MMi

    You have to download fuzzyband from Cydia to know what your bootloader is.

    If you dont have Cydia now you cany get Fuzzyband.

    If you want Cydia you have to restore and jailbreak again.

    If you dont want to, well I guess this is as far as I can do for you.

    Good luck!

    edit^ you cant get Fuzzyband without Cydia
