    iPhone 3GS 32 GB firmware 3.0.
    T-Mobile sim card.
    Tryed to upgrade to 4.1 with Tinyumbrella,but when opened iTunes probably upgraded to the latest firmware.
    Now is stuck on "Connect to iTunes" and when i do that shows:
    The sim card is not from approved carrier.
    I will appreciate any good and detailed help.

    Download limera1n or greenpoison and run either one. They can activate the phone for you.

    Try make it ra1n again, and reboot your iphone too.

    You should get a Limera1n icon

    What shsh blogs do you have ? I know you have the old bootrom.

    Do you want to try custom firmware of 4.1, i have a copy here. You have to run Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 to put you into DFU mode and then shift + restore to cfw of 4.1

    This is a hactivated copy.

    Used Redsn0w 0.9.6b2 and shows "Unable to recognize specifyed file IPSW"
    when browsing to your file 4.1 activated.

    You browse to stock 4.1 which you have to download as well, make sure you don't use Redsn0w to jailbreak, just check the last box that says put into dfu mode, once you are in dfu mode, open up itunes and do the shift + restore to the one i gave you.

    So basically, you will have two 4.1 ipsw , one is the stock to run redsn0w and the other is cfw to be restored.
