...It is 5.14.04 and i use windows 7...

Modem firmware or baseband 5.14.04 does not exist for iPhone 3G.  :o

From http://www.jailbreakunlockwiki.com/list-of-all-iphone-and-ipad-baseband-versions-in-all-ios/

iPhone 3G Basebands

iPhone 3G Baseband 01.45.00 [iOS 2.0]
iPhone 3G Baseband 01.48.02 [iOS 2.0.1]
iPhone 3G Baseband 02.08.01 [iOS 2.0.2]
iPhone 3G Baseband 02.11.07 [iOS 2.1]
iPhone 3G Baseband 02.28.00 [iOS 2.2]
iPhone 3G Baseband 02.30.03 [iOS 2.2.1]
iPhone 3G Baseband 04.26.08 [iOS 3.0 and iOS 3.0.1]
iPhone 3G Baseband 05.11.07 [iOS 3.1 and iOS 3.1.2]
iPhone 3G Baseband 05.12.01 [iOS 3.1.3]
iPhone 3G Baseband 05.13.04 [iOS 4.0, iOS 4.0.1 and iOS 4.0.2]
iPhone 3G Baseband 05.14.02 [iOS 4.1]
iPhone 3G Baseband 05.15.04 [iOS 4.2.1]


And some users installed the iPad baseband 06.15.00 on their iPhone 3G but that one is bad as the GPS will not work and it shortens the battery life. It is used only has a stepping stone to install 05.12.01 or 05.13.04 to carrier unlock them.

So, i have followed the official tutorial, everything went fine except that now i have no service. And that is weird because it is factory unlocked and I can use any sim card.

It is 5.14.04 and i use windows 7.

Everything worked fine when i jailbreak it first time

I assume you installed the Whited00r Unlocked firmware instead of the Normal one. Right? Try again with the normal one. Let me know
Thanks you were right!


It worked with the normal firmware!

Great!

Now can you tell us your exact Modem firmware please? Go to Settings > General > About > and scroll down.

And maybe describe how you did it so to help other Whited00r users with a similar problem?  8)

So, made a backup; downloaded the normal firmware; used ireb to do something (not really sure what), just followed the instruction with holding the power and home button; started itunes and selected restore with shift; selected downloaded firmware and that was it.

Thanks but what about my baseband question?


And your iPhone 3G was already jailbroken & factory unlocked before you installed Whited00r 6 Normal Version, right?
