Not sure what OS you running, but before you open the hosts file you need to either run as an administrator or give your self full access including write permissions to edit the file. Then when you open the hosts file open it in notepad and add the line to the next free line at the bottom and click save. *****MAKE YOURSELF A COPY OF THIS JUST INCASE YOU FONGUL IT*****16GB Black 3GS limping on 3.1

I could restore but when it's time to jailbreak, my iphone 3GS cannot end the jailbreak process. It rolls down hundreds of lines of "waiting for NAND to appear..." Any idea ??

thanks for the help guys... saddly i dont think my file was saved... I did jb saturday on my replacement 3G[s] and I swear that i did the make my life easier (but maybe i got it mixed up with my previous unit) and I was fored to restore be cause a i couldnt turn off the voice option thing be cause I couldnt open sbsettings ( i had my settings icon in there) so it seems that I may have shot myself in the foot until the devs come up with a new jb... thanks for all the help tho it wrked in a sense...
what are you using? if your using redsnow make sure your using .8 and be patient, you may have to do the process more than once
long shot... but is there a way to use my previous ecid?

everyone should read this who even remotely cares about their jailbroken 3g[s]. there are so many people who post off the news threads. i thought there would be 100 posts by now, but i guess not. looks like we'll have to think this in some replies on the news threads as well. some people just don't want to do the research themselves, they want to be spoon fed the information.Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons.

Quick question about this process too...I have a jail broken 3GS that was updated to 3.01 and used a 3.0 IPSW to jail break. My phone is functional, but Supreme Preferences 3.0 botched it up pretty badly, and I need to restore.
Should I download and upgrade to 3.1 and then follow Saurik's guide to go to 3.0? Or should I try and do it with a 3.0 IPSW or 3.01 IPSW?
Thanks for any info

Thanks for the info...any other info on 3.1? If I upgrade and then downgrade and JB, the only thing that changes is my baseband, which means I can't unlock it, but does the baseband have anything to do with MMS settings?
