So you ypgraded your crApple device and run in to issue with no service or searching… Well, go for Android…But for now here’s the fix :

  • I AM NOT TAKING CREDIT OR DONATIONS OR ANY OTHER BIT  THAT ARE INCLUDED IN THIS POST. 
  • I AM NOT TAKING ANY RESPONSIBILITY.DO THIS ON YOUR OWN RISK!!!

I did this on friends crApple 3GS and it worked for me. 

1. download file iphone2,1_5.0.1_9A405_Restore.zip and save as an ipsw file (not zip).
2. using itunes restore the 3GS using this same ipsw file ( hold down the shift ket whilst pressing the restore button).
3. download redsn0w_win_0.9.10b5 and unzip.
4. REMOVE SIM
5. run redsn0w and select EXTRAS then select IPSW and navigate to the same ipsw file. go back and select JAILBREAK. Then do Deactivate. follow instructions
6. After above has finished do the same as 5 but this time at JAILBREAK select load IPAD BaseBand. follow instructions.
7. After above has finished do same as 5 but this time at JAILBREAK select install CYDIA. follow instructions.
8. After above finished use CYDIA to install ULTRASN0W.
9. after above INSERT ANY SIM
good luck…

Windows and Mac

1. To add a ringtone to your iPhone, using Windows Explorer or Finder just duplicate and rename any AAC file with a “M4R” extension, then double-click on it. This file will be added to your iTunes library automatically. (Some are reporting a size limit for the music file, so if you have trouble, using a smaller file may help)

2. Now, click on your iPhone in iTunes, and go to the ringtone section. You should now see your new ringtone. If you want to be sure about the sync, feel free to click “selected ringtones” and check off the file explicitly, though this shouldn’t be required.

3. Now SYNC your phone. You’re Done!

Mac Notes

You have to make sure the actual extension is changed. The easiest way to make sure you are changing the extension is to use Command-I to “Get Info” on the file in Finder. Then change the extension in the “Name & Extension” field to “M4R”. Finder may ask you if you are sure you want to change the extension. Once you double click, the file should show up in the Ringtone area in iTunes.

Windows Notes

Again, you need to make sure the actual extension is changed.

Opens My Computer, Then goes to Tools-Folder Options-View

UNCHECK “Hide extensions for known file types” once this is done you can simply rename the file with a new extension of M4R which then changes the Icon to say RING.
