    Real time help needed! Please help quickly!

    Ok so my friend got an iPhone, new in box, and wants to jailbreak and unlock it. One problem: he's not on AT&T and can't activate it to update and jailbreak.

    How can we activate the iPhone with no AT&T account and then jailbreak it on 3.1.2 and unlock it?

    Thanks!

    Put the iPhone into restore mode by holding down both the power and home button for about 40 seconds. You will see a connect to iTunes screen and you can restore it fro
    there. (It will restore the phone to the newest firmware)

    Download blackra1n and jailbreak it.

    Use blackra1n (on the device) to unlock it and install cydia.

    Put the iPhone into DFU Mode and click restore. That will restore it to the 3.1.2 firmware.

    Run blackra1n.

    Install Cydia and blacksn0w.

    And will that take care of the activation as well?
