    6: Restore to a regular 4.2.1 firmware. When you get the 1015 error use greenpoison to jailbreak:


    Correct me if I'm wrong;

    1. Phone already in restore-mode (asking for itunes)
    2. Restore @ iTunes by regular way.. (only option besides shift+)
    3. Near the end of restore you get the error 1015.
    4. iPhone display; still asking for itunes
    5. Turn iPhone off, and run Greenpois0n?

    Superb, it does work..
    TinyUmbrella can recognize my iPhone again;
    BB 06.15.00-6.4_M3S2

    But I've got 1 problem now..
    The phone is locked with an foreign provider,
    so I can't activate.. what can I do now?

    Use redsnow 0.9.6rc8 to hactivate it if you are stuck at the emergency call screen.

    I am indeed "still" stuck at the emergency call screen.
    Follewed your instructions;

    1. Emergency call screen (waiting for activation)
    2. Turned iPhone off
    3. Compatible-mode redsnow 0.9.6rc8 started
    4. Browsed the standard 3GS 4.2.1 ipsw.
    5. Selected I have new bootroom.
    6. In the "box screen" only selected "deactivate". (So de-select Cydia because I already used GP?)
    7. Starts with the proces, upload ramdisk etc.
    8. Pinapple screen going good, after that there is a reboot.
    9. End then still the "emergency screen" waiting for activation.

    Was this hactivating or did I do something wrong?

    You need to select to install cydia or select nothing. Do not use the de-activate button. You want to activate, not de-activate.

    Sounds like a no SHSH issue. What firmware are you on?

    Download tiny umbrella, connect your device and press save SHSH. This will tell you what SHSH you have.

    But when i try to restore to 4.2.1 custom firmware i am getting 1015 error.
    As of my understanding we have 4.2.1 as latest right?Is custom firmware for 4.3.1 released.
    Just for understanding how come 4.3.1 is saved as shsh as i didnt tried to update my phone to 4.3.1.
    After my battery got drained completey i tried to restore with 4.2.1v then i am getting 1015 error and my phone is going back to itunes symbol.Evn i try to exit the recovery mode or teather boot it ,my phone is still going to itunes only,for that reason only i downgraded to 4.1/4.0.After downgrading to 4.1/4.0 and try to update to 4.2.1 i am getting 16XX errors

    Restore to 4.2.1. When you get the 1015 error use greenpoison rc6 on it.

    All you need to do is this:
    1: Put the iPhone in recovery or dfu mode (not pwned dfu)
    2: Shift restore to 4.2.1, you do not need to enter dfu with redsnow or use tiny umbrella at all.
    3: After you get the 1015 error use greenpoison on it
