    Are you sure your O2 sim is ok? Tried another O2 sim in the phone?

    What is the baseband version?

    Goto Settings>General>About and give us the modem firmware number.

    Ok good 2 things to try. First one is easiest. Try the hacktivation patch from the pushfix repo.

    If that doesn't solve your problems, the go back to 3.1.3 and rejailbreak with spirit, install spirit2pwn in cydia from woowiz repo and then do a custom restore with snowbreeze or pwnagetool to 4.0. This will have you jb so no need for jailbreakme. Just install ultrasnow and see if it's working now.

    When you use snowbreeze/pwnagetool then try the hactivation option to create your custom 4.0 firmware.

    If you can wait, then snowbreeze 2 is supposed to be out tomorrow, so you could even try custom firmware to 4.1 from 3.1.3.

    Late here so off to bed, best of luck, I'll check back tomorrow!

    You could do a shift+restore to 4.0.2 using tiny umbrella, jailbreak with limerain and then use ultrasnow.

    i dont know of any solution to get you to 4.1... it seems like 4.0.2 might be the best way to go as westonben described

    question for anyone:

    is it possible for hargs to update to 4.1 on TU, and then jb/unlock with limesn0w/ultrasn0w?

    the reason i ask is because if he doesnt have shsh save for 3.1.2 or for 4.0.2 then idk if custom firmware works will work.

    Update a 3GS to stock 4.1 and you're stuck with an unlockable baseband.

    Limesnow doesn't exist (yet?)

    Does this sim card work in another phone?

    Final attempt before you wait for a new unlock:

    1. Restore to 4.0.1 and use jailbreakme
    2. Run jbme2pwn from woowiz repo
    3. Restore to 4.1 (snowbreeze 2.0.2 created custom firmware), and run ultrasn0w again.
