Apple iPhone 3G - Using Jailbreakme to unlock

I followed the instructions and steps from the site, but at Step 5, when I was supposed to see the blue IPSW check, I did not see anything.  The iPhone was connected to iTunes, and I had downloaded sn0wbreeze -2.2.1.  Can any of the Gurus let me know what I am doing wrong.  Thank u.

In my opinion redsn0w is more trustworthy than other jailbreaks.
You should simply upgrade your iDevice to the new firmware with iTunes.
Then use redsn0w and press the jailbreak button and done.

To download redsn0w checkout:

I am not sure I can see "the site" you are talking about.

First thing to make sure we are not getting an error because your phone is not suitable please do this iClarified Wizard.

Does it say you can jailbreak?

The Wizard does give you a suggestion of what to do but here is the full list.

1. iClarified Jailbreak Tutorial List;

2. iClarified Unlock Tutorial List

Please note that 3G was a while ago so you will have to go down a little bit in the lists.

Also never update your software from iTunes without being sure that it will not update your modem software to a version that cannot be unlocked.

I would strongly suggest to investigate very carefully this suggestion.  You need to check that the version of iOS that itunes is going to put on the phone for the 3G contained a modem version that is unlockable.

Because you are unlocking it is ALWAYS better to only use a .ipsw that you have modified first so that it does NOT upgrade modem software.

Did you try the tutorial I posted?

After you jailbreak you need to open up cydia tap manage choose sources then tap edit then tap add type in http://repo666.ultasn0w.com/
(The 0 is a zero)
Once you have that added tap on the source you should see ultrasn0w tap on that now tap on install.
Once thats finished you should now be able to put any sim in the phone.

Sorry I seem to have told you something incorrect.  That wizard says no unlock for your baseband, but there is.

Here is the step by step instructions.
