    Default Major problem!
    I installed that app from bigboss that makes it look like you have 3.1.3 firmware when you really only have 3.1.2 now my phone is stuck in brick mode, it wont allow me to restore it to the 3.1.2 firmware it gets to "verifying iphone restore with apple" then I get an error saying "The iPhone could not be restored. The device isnt eligible for the requested build."

    What the hell do I do now my phone is stuck in recovery mode.

    I'm assuming you have a 3gs. What do you mean by brick mode?
    Have you tried a reboot?

    Sorry, yes I have a 3gs, brick mode aka recovery mode.

    ~Tim

    I have just installed 3.1.3 that is the only option that it would allow me to do, now I must follow the guide to downgrading?

    Is it a tethered jailbreak?

    Newer 3gs have what is called a tethered jailbreak. Every time you shut the phone off or reboot you need to run blackra1n to boot it

    I see your edit. Unless you have your shsh on file you can't downgrade

    Yes that happens, every time I had to restart my iPhone I had to run blackra1n why?

    ~Tim

    Tethered jailbreak, basically it's needed because of additional security measures apple used on the newer 3gs

    do you have your shsh on file, as in
    "clicked the make my life easier button" in cydia?

    3.1.3 won't

    They won't release a new jailbreak until the next major firmware comes out, which will likely be 4.0

    Odd my phone is syncing atm but instead of it saying AT&T it says my name like I had it, as well as it has the battery %
    which are jail broken features right?

    It's not /that/ bad!!!

    They have a jailbreak, they are just holding off on releasing it until either the ipad 3g or new iPhone comes out. Thy way apple will(hopefully) not have time to patch the exploit

    in theeantime don't fall for any of the paid jailbreak/unlock scams

    real jailbreaks are free, until you see it posted in the news here it doesn't exist!!

    Yeah, that happens, it's pulling it from your iTunes backup. Your still stuck

    Yes

    so just out of curiosity, running blackrain didn't work to get it booted ?

    Sucks because I think there
    was
    probably /some/ way to avoid restoring. There's some very knowledgable members here, it's just a little late to get immediate help

    Well I think when I ran that app to trick itunes into thinking my phone had 3.1.3 on it it also fooled blackrain because it sat with blackrain on it for 20min with out doing anything.

    As long as apple doesn't patch the exploit, nothing os certain

    did you by any chance update to iTunes 9.1 ?

    The newest iTunes, 9.1, killed blackrain on windows machines. But ih8tsnow has a fix, snowbreeze, I think

    just would have really sucked if that was the only problem
