    I was all excited to finally upgrade, now I may have screwed the pooch. I have a 3G that was jail broken and unlocked using 3.1.3. I used itunes to download 4.1. It was installed automatically. When the phone retsarted It asked for the original sim card (ATT). I can't find the D#@$ card any where. So, I tried to Jailbreak it anyway using Snowbreeze 2.0 hoping there was an unlock in the program. I got to the point where 2.0 said it was done>enter recovery mode>then launch itunes. Is it possible to enter recovery mode even when locked out? If I can't find the original sim is there another way around this lock?

    redsn0w 0.9.6 BETA [iPhone Dev Team]

    However, that does not unlock it. Take a look around for an update to FuzzyBand, that should work for it.

    Dude, you did it the wrong way. There is a certain steps to take.
    You cannot just jump to Snowbreeze.
    If you want to use Snowbreeze, you have to downgrade your 3G to 3.1.3, then jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.4 first, once this is done, restore to custom firmware of 4.1 created by Snowbreeze.
    But you cannot unlock it now, only jailbreak because you have once restored to 4.1 ipsw.

    I just saw your alias as Ultrafast : don't you know slow and steady wins the race...LOL

    Can't 3G phones just shift+restore to the custom fw just fine? I thought only old boot 3GS had to downgrade first, JB, then shift+restore to custom fw.

    @OP, you'd have to downgrade to 3.1.x then JB. Cuz the new Redsn0w is Mac only, unless you have a Mac to do so.

    Yes, Anniex, you must downgrade to 3.xx first and then do the jailbreak with Redsn0w,Spirit or Blackra1n. Only then you can use Snowbreeze 2.0.

    If you are already at 3.xx, and not jailbroken with Jailbreakme.com but with Blackra1n, Redsn0w or Spirit, then you can go directly to Snowbreeze 2.0

    Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 is to jailbreak iOS 4.1 for Mac but you have to restore to 4.1 which means you will update your Baseband. Unless you don't want unlock, for Mac user , you can jailbreak your 4.1 with Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 without downgrading.

    Just tried to restore. Itunes said there was an error and couldn't complete. I believe I upgraded properly; just the unlock is gone and I don't have the original sim. Anything else I can do/try?

    The phone originally had 3.1.2 I upgraded and jailbroke at the same time to 3.1.3. I used redsnow on my PC and I unlocked at the same time. Tonight I used itunes to to get 4.1 then used S.B. 2 to J.B. when the phone restarted it wanted the original sim. Tried to restore but gave me an error code 1015 "unknown error".

    1015 is not a harmful error. Use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode. But seeing as what you listed as your steps, you didn't get the restore to custom fw done correctly if you need a SIM to activate. A custom FW should take you straight to the springboard.

    Like Yeow said, get back down to 3.1.x. JB with redsn0w. Then shift+restore to your custom fw you created with sn0wbreeze for 4.1. Then you should be JB on 4.1.

    Edit: this means don't upgrade to 4.1 stock via iTunes. After you JB with redsn0w, you'll want to shift+restore to the custom fw straightaway.

    The jailbreak is one thing - his baseband is probably @ 5.14 now

    Is it possible to use Tiny umbrella through my PC? If I cant restore how can I downgrade. I cannot access my phone. Thank you for the help. I just reread the posts and saw what you said about my alias..LOL!

    Once you kick it out of recovery when you encountered 1015, you have already restored to 3.1.3, use Redsn0w 0.9.4 from Emergency Screen, it will hactivate and jailbreak for you, just point to 3.1.2 when running Redsn0ow.
    You do not need the valid sim to activate at 3.1.3

    I get what your saying to an extent. except the recovery screen never disapears even after the 1015 error and how do I get to the emergency screen?

    At the 1015 error you'll wanna use TinyUmbrella to kick it out of recovery mode. Thats the mode it is in that you're describing.

    i ran tiny umbrella as an administrator and regular I allways get this message " The JVM could not be started. The main method may have thrown an exception". That is the most confusing thing I have ever read..

    you are right I now have 5.14 baseband. What does that mean. Also, I got tinyumbrella to work I had to uninstall java then re-install. My phone is still stuck at sim card not authorized.
