09-14-2009, 12:34 AM #1Please help me downgrade my iphone to 3.0
I'm stuck here i downloaded wrong firmware for my Iphone 3gs it's called Golden Master 3.0 firmware build 7A341 for developers and now I am trying to downgrade it to regular 3.0 and I get an error in itunes that my phone isnt eligible for that firmware. And i dont want to install 3.1 on my 3gs cause i wont be able to unlock it. Please help me cause I'm really stuck here.
This is what I did not read before installing the right software:
This version of iPhone OS 3.0 should only be deployed on devices dedicated for iPhone OS 3.0 GM Seed software development
. By installing iPhone OS 3.0 GM Seed software on your Authorized Test Devices, these Devices are permanently “locked” into testing mode and cannot be restored to an earlier release of iPhone OS. Bear this in mind before installing the software.

The ONLY option as of right now for the 3G[S] is 3.1, until Saurik tells us how he downgraded. for now you are stuck.

how do you edit the hosts file. i'd copied and paste into host file but still saying the iphone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build? please help

# The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
# Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
# lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.

I followed saurik's instructions to the "T" here's how I did it. BTW - I'm using Vista
Computer-CWindows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts. Well, here's the problem when I get to hosts HOW do I add and WHERE? THE 188.8.131.52 gs.apple.com according to saurik. Please I hope someone can help me. Thank you.
