i tried alot methods but bo one is working.
snowbreez, redsnow, tinyumbrella itunes i had tried these methods but nothing going to happen.

so your friend updated it to ios 5.0.1. with ios 5 you should be able to activate the device with out plugging it into itunes, what carrier is the phone locked to and are you using that carrier?

Just factory restore it using iTunes. i mean, connect it to iTunes, and click restore and let it do the work for you, it might take time by downloading the IPSW if you do not already have it on your computer, but after the download, it will continue restoring the phone. There is no need of using those Redsnow or other tools you've mentioned up there, those are for jail breaking the iOS.
