  • 3GS iPhones can no longer restore to 3.0


    As of this morning iPhone 3GS owners can no longer restore to firmwares 3.0 or 3.0.1. This is due to the fact that Apple has stopped signing these files and if you try and restore using one you'll get an error. So this means you should be very very careful until 3.1 is jailbroken because if you mess up your phone... you can only go up to 3.1 as of now. Additionally if you do not have your IBSS and IBEC signatures and you restore, you may never be able to jailbreak again.

    iPhone 3G and first generation owners should still be able to restore with no problems.

      Hopefully they will get the jailbreak out for this soon.

      My 3gs is acting up something bad so I am going to restore to 3.1 and risk losing the unlock ability. I firmly believe there will be a jailbreak for 3.1 which is all I care about anyway.

      See you all on the other side.

      The rock update f'd up my phone. It s stuck on the boot logo and I was given the advice by Stealth to remove some dylib files that made it worse. When I try to dfu a low batter sign comes up on the phone, it won't even let me restore. Can someone help me??? This is pissy.

      Let it charge for a while and see what happens. Stealth has a great wealth of knowledge and anything he told you was to help you.

      I don't have a 3GS but I was horrified by adding activateMM2G and it completely bricked my phone. I got the 1600 error doing a dfu mode restore to custom 3.1 and I went back to 3.0.1 with 1600 error and opened redsnow 3.0 and it worked but this was after 3 hours of sweating because I had originally went to 3.1 without going into dfu mode and now its on 3.0 freshly unlocked and ready to go. I am selling it to get an 8 gb iphone 2G. So to help you 3GS guys try messing around with 3.0 it may work for you.

      What phone is it? If you got it working again it wasn't 'bricked'.
