Bypass iOS 5's setup activation screen

I finally got my iphone 3gs jailbroken and on iOS 5 (It was a nightmare)
Then I was shocked to find that I couldn't get past the activation screen!!

I found a way online. It works on iPhone 4 and 3gs.

1. Do the set up. Press the Blue arrow to keep going to the activation screen.

2. Once you are on the activation screen, press the home button to get to 'Emergency Call'

3. Press Emergency Call.

4. Dial '911' (Or whatever. I suggest you dial a number that is NOT an emergency number in your location)

5. Press the Green button to make a call and QUICKLY press the power button to turn off the phone. (Don't slide to turn it off) Press cancel.

6. Press 'Touch to Return to Call' at the top of the screen.

7. Press Red button to End call.


Enjoy

What happens when you try to unlock a jailbroken iphone 4 with gevey sim on a preserved 04.08.01 baseband?
Can I reboot it tethered i keep the activation?

To complete this tutorial, i suggest this:

You can avoid doing this every time by installing "Activator" through Cydia and assigning "Everywhere" the Shake move to "spotlight" (not to the 1st page of springboard, it wont work),

Now, every time you slide from the lockscreen, you just have to shake your iPhone, and you're on the spotlight, and you can navigate in the springboard.

Thanx go to me, I know

Hi grogtgs,

The tricks you suggest really works, but I can't use the screen and launch any app. I can type to spotlight but can't run the apps. What else do you suggest please ?

Thanks !

Why would you want to get passed the activation screen without setting up the phone?

Is this for people that need an unlock?

Likewise - I am having the same problem. I have tried creating a custom firmware with sn0wbreze, however i cant get the phone to finish the update, it all seems to go well but the procedure stalls on reboot. The phone stalls on the apple screen, where the white bar should move across.

OK I get it now - Thanks AlphaCypher

I hadn't realised that redsn0w also hactivated.

So for clarity for others:

1)Update through iTunes normally
2)Once the update finishes move straight on to Redsn0w and jailbreak.
3)Once jailbreak is complete go through the iOS5 set up screen, but importantly the activate with iTunes option is no longer there, it just works - Nice one

Yes, you can skip the activation screen with this tutorial, but you can not use any app. I'm in the same stage until redsn0w will support 4s. Hope it will be soon!

Yeah... you didn't have to bump this.

If you bypass the activation screen and put your device into sleep mode you'll be stuck on the activation screen again. /bummer
