Thank you Brad for the response. I've just done what you told me. I've created the snowbreeze file, restored the Iphone. !!!It worked!!! I now have 4.3.3 firmware and 06.15.00 baseband. Cydia is already installed but i dont have Wifi. any sugestions? do I have to re-jailbreak?

Try to make a new Custom Firmware with Sn0wbreeze, but this time when setting up Sn0wbreeze click the "Custom Packages" box and add ultrasn0w and any other Cydia apps you might need. If Sn0wbreeze will not let you add ultrsn0w here then do not use this file(Custom Firmware).

by Brad

I've ran snowbreeze, reselecting the 4.3.3 ipsw file, then clicked the custom packages. Then I see select packages, download packages and manage sources. Ultasnow is allready in the manage sources tab. What do i have to do next? Thx in advanced

by sofiane

I thought your problem was possibly not having Ultrasn0w on your iPhone right now. If Ultrasn0w is already there do not do anything. Do you get telephone service now on the iPhone? If yes, then you are good. I thought because you said No Wifi you could not get your iPhone at least working as a phone again. Regarding the No WiFi issues I don't have a good answer.

by Brad

I now have my SIM-card in the Iphone. Thats the provider wich i have to unlock. Because with that card, i only get the Itunes, usb plug + Slide ( http://hottipscentral.com/blog/wp-conten... ( example picture)).

Problems solved with thanks to Brad!! Start with making a Custom Firmware 4.3.3 for 3GS and install it, if mac use pwnage tool 4.3.3 go to following site http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.ph... , if windoz use snowbreeze 2.7 go to following site http://ih8sn0w.com/index.php/welcome.sno... Go to cydia, and run ultrasnow. Should be fixed. I had problems with wifi. Couldn't find my network. I went close to the wifi antenna, and had reception. Could instal Ultrasnow and phone was JB and Unlocked. If you're having the same problem, check your cable 6!
