    If you've already activated through iTunes at that firmware version at least once, it leaves it at legit activation. If you haven't, it fake activates. So it handles both official and unofficial carriers.
    Ah, thanks for clearing that up - and for taking the time to comment.

    I knew it "hacktivated" the iPhone, but didn't realise if that you had already used that version on a legit carrier in the past it wouldn't do so.

    The first post has been updated to reflect this.

    Do you think that OS 3.1 version will be jailbroken?

    Yes, both iPhone Dev-Team and Chronic Dev are working on it.

    I would be very surprised if one of them hadn't released a 3.1 Jailbreak for the 3GS within the next two weeks.

    For anyone interested, i've just written a 710 word article about how the iTunes restore verification system works. You can access it via http://www.macdotnub.co.cc/articles/ and you will need a PDF viewer to read it, until I get round to making a HTML version too.

    Two weeks are not a long time. And it takes time for them to figure out how to get things work/how to make it so that even the stupidest person can use their tools to jailbreak.

    Anyway, that is off topic. No more questions about when the jailbreak will be out here please.

    I am not going to answer that. I do not condone software piracy.

    iGuru, great work. got both my 3.0 and 3.1 blobs. Quick question, in part 3 when i run tinytss it gets to
    INFO: Starting TinyTss service on Port 80.
    is that it? i dont need it to tell me it HAS started? cos from there the cursor just flashes away forever. not sure if that means sonethign else is running and it cant start, or if it HAS started?

    cheers

    i am under the impression Tinytss can work as an offline (no internet) restore method. is this correct? or does iTunes still communicate with Apple? and an internet connection IS required

    With so many users having troubles, its confusing.

    I just bought a new 3GS, and it has 3.01 firmware in it.
    I have yet to connect it to itunes to even register it.
    So i have a few questions, as most questions on this forum are for downgrading from 3.1 to 3.0/3.01. I already have 3.01 on the phone. So, ...

    Can i save the firmware currently on the phone for restoring later ?. (Which looks to be NO)

    What steps to take to have it jailbroken (Redsnow version etc).

    Its looking like a headache going from easily jailbreaking my 3G and Ipod2G to this..

    Feel like taking the 3GS back for a refund after reading the hassles..

    T.P

    Thank you for this. I was attempting to get the 00.shsh file and had the gs.apple.com 127.0.0.1 in my hosts file as well.

    This is a very good article and I appreciate you time in doing this. You made it very easy to understand if coming from a former Windows Mobile guy. I'm actually still a moderator on xda-developers. but I have come to appreciate Apples fantastic device. Sorry to go off topic.

    I appreciate all your help on this site and I enjoy reading how much time and effort you have put into this and providing all the users your help and assistance without "spoon feeding" them.

    You can restore without an internet connection using TinyTTS, correct.

    1) No

    2) RedSnow 0.8 - you will need to download the iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw and when you start RedSnow click Browse and then browse to the 3.0 ISPW you downloaded, not a 3.0.1 one. Then just follow the instructions it gives you. This may sound confusing, as you're jailbreaking 3.0.1, rather than 3.0, but it is the way to do it.

    1) Open cmd.exe, type java -version
    What does it respond with?

    2) If you downgrade you should not loose your phone service. However, if you were not using the official carrier before (e.g. o2 (UK), AT&T (US)) you will loose your service.

    Thanks to all of those who put much effort into this.

    I just have one question...

    I am on 3.0.1 - I used the methods to obtain my 00.shsh file on my ma.
    When I used 3.0.1 - I got a 4kb file - not valid.

    When I used 3.1 as the version - it is at 66kb. (Which I believe is valid). I got this file using 3.1 as the version, even though I'm on JB 3.0.1


    So I do have my ECID SHSH file for 3.1 even though I'm running 3.0.1, correct?
    I did not make the window, so I 'm not on 3.0/3.0.1 file on cydia - I'm currently pending on TSS...

    What exactly will all this allow me to do?
    I read and reread but I'm so confused.

    This will allow me to downgrade to 3.1 after 3.1+ comes out, but not 3.0/3.0.1... correct? I don't need an unlock, just a JB, so will I be safe?
    iPhone 3G 16GB - Black.

    Screw the crAppStore I want Installer!
