    Alright, rookie mistake but bought a used iphone, worked no problem with my sim card, but was running on version 2.2 i believe so when I made the mistake of plugging it into my itunes for the first time and updated it, it locked itself. Now the only screen available is the emergency call screen. Was wondering if anyone can help me out, thanks. This was done today , November 26th so I do believe it was most recent update version although i don't know how to check as i'm locked out.

    Hi there,

    I just went to a wireless guy to unlock my iphone 3gs... he did but told me not to let the battery die...i didn't but i've been having troubles calling out and when i was on the phone it just rebooted itself...now its stuck on the black background with the apple logo... is there anything i can do about this?

    Any help would be so greatly appreciated...i'm without a cell and its so very frustrating.

    So I've don't some time reading the stickies and I had one question that I either missed the answer to or is too simple to be addressed. If I get an ipad and jailbreak and unlock it, will I be able to still get iOS updates in the future?

    I'm guessing I have to "revirginize" the device to do this but just want to confirm it's possible.


    Thanks.

    # Power on the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch if it’s in off state.
    # Connect the device to computer via USB cable or dock.
    # Run and open the iTunes program so that user will be notified when device enters DFU mode.
    # Press and hold Power or Sleep-Wake and Home buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds.
    # Release the Power or Sleep-Wake button and continue holding the Home button for 10 to 60 more seconds.
    # Wait until iTunes detects and recognizes the iDevice in DFU Recovery mode with notification message or system sound indicating hardware connect or disconnect.
    # The device is now in DFU mode.

    In order to jailbreak the 3G and maintain the carrier, is there a specific tool / OS version that I should be using??
