iphone 3G 4.2.1 Custom firmware without BB update :)

Hi Guys i just lot of people asking for the firmware, so i installed vmware and Mac on it to give you my fist helping hand

All you have to do is, restore using the custom 4.2.1 and use redsn0w_win_0.9.6b6 to upgrade BB. but make sure cydia is unchecked when you use redsnow.



clickhere to download the firmware for iphone3G



<a href="http://hotfile.com/dl/87053887/28169be/iPhone12_4.2.1_8C148_Custom_Restore.ipsw.html">http://hotfile.com/dl/87053887/28169be/iPhone12_4.2.1_8C148_Custom_Restore.ipsw.html</a>


Tested and works perfect

No hactivate and if you want to, then you can use “SAM” and “SAMPrefs” guide

The reason for not activating is that it drains battery info

Download Redsn0w 0.9.6b6 for Windows



How to..........
use the custom image to restore your 3G and then use redsnow to upgrade your BB and use ifunbox to use the unlocker "SAMPrefs"(put it in cydia Auto install folder and restart your phone)

probably a noob question, but, i want to update my 3.1.3 jb and unlocked 3g,
I do NOT want to upgrade my bb i want it to stay as 04.26.08.
What are the steps tp do this, can i just use the custom restore file and restore through itunes? is it really that simple?.
I'm guessing if it is i will have to use ultrasn0w to unlock after the custom restore?
Any help appreciated.
Thanks,
Dave

To be sure. hotline link is a Custom Firmware without BB update and not activated
I'm interesting because I have a 5.13.04 baseband (lockeable)

So, what is the way to restore?

I suppose this method, but I'm not sure

1) Use itunes + iREB RC2 with the Custom Firmware????? ... The phone is unactivated
2) Load redsnow and open "Original Firmware 4.2.1" in the first question?????
3) The use redsn0w ticking "Cydia" and "De-active"?
4) Patch and then run itunes?? will it activated even if there isn't SAM installed in the iphone? can I install SAM from Cydia even if it isn't activated?? how??

Is there any GPS issue with 5.13.04 baseband?

But I can only use redsnow with the official 4.2.1 IPSW, so it does a BB-update?

---------- EDIT ----------

ok thanks, seems like it worked with doing redsnow
now i install ultrasnow, and then SAM, and after that remove the "buggy" hacktivation?

Would you confirm the link you use? and a simple tutorial?

I'm interesting in this method, I have 3G with custom 4.1 (BB 5.13.04), I'm in Spain and I don't have original SIM AT&T ... I want to use SAM activation

First try. Failed
Rapidshare link. No BB and No Hactivated

1) Put DFU mode with redsnow (selecting first FW4.2.1 oficial)
2) Open itunes, restore using "shift+restore" use CUSTOM FIRMWARE
3) Finish
4) Open redsnow (with oficial FW). Selecting Install Cydia and Deactivate. Run
5) Need to activate with itunes ... but NO WAY. It doesn't recognize SIM

As I believed, if I can't install SAM via Cydia I can't active iphone first
I think I need a Custom Activated Firmware, and later use SAM to deactivate

I will try


PD: A question. I need to run redsnow with Custom Firmware? Maybe it's my mistake
Maybe I could change step 4 and use only "Deactivate"
