    Hello, new guy here.

    Anyway, I have a problem with my new iPhone 4, I bought it on eBay and apparently, the phone is not yet activated and I dont have the original sim that iTunes is asking to activate the phone. Ive done some research but still left with no answers. Im trying the hacktivate that can be done by using redsn0w with the 'deactivate' box checked, but sadly that box is not present in the latest version. Any kind of help is appreciated.

    Thanks, and have a great day.

    Redsn0w will hacktivate it. The deactivate is to deactivate after jailbreak to use with SAM which removes the side effects of hacktivation.

    You can run redsn0w on it to get past the emergency call screen, the catch is, whenever your phone shuts off or reboots you'll need to run redsn0w's boot tethered to get your phone up and running again. This means if you don't have a computer with redsn0w near you if/when your phone shuts off or reboots, you'll have to wait till you have access to the comp before you can use your phone again.

    Edit: I just realized that wasn't clear on instructions. Don't select the deactivate box, select the Cydia box.

    Err.. But redsn0w should be untethered for 4.3.3 as well.. (RC15)
    Am I missing something..?

    It'll be easier to detect in the future if you insert [SARCASM][/SARCASM] tags in the future.

    Yup. I noticed..
    I was just thinking to add, "wait, you knew it.." to prevent the cycle, but then I figured that would lead to an answer like "yep" or something..

    Maybe we should stop our threadjack for now. Was nice "chatting" with ya.
