    Did the thing with blackrain and have upgraded to a pwned 4.0, but am unable to make calls. I wasnt able to make calls on the 3.1.2 firmware either but I figured that was because of the baseband incompatibility (I already had 5.13.x) My SIM is an acceptable one, Telstra AU. should I be using ultrash0w to unlock anyway or have I missed a crucial step in the process. Basically, everything works except the phone/sms etc.

    [Edit] Just did that (installed ultrasn0w), problem solved.

    {edit #2] Ohno, the main reason I wanted a JB if i HAD to have iOS4 is MyWi and its not working (yet). waaaa.

    Any idea why ultrasn0w was required to make the phone work? I *am* using a SIM which was previously (legally) activated but the phone not yet unlocked. Everything else (Wifi, bluetooth etc) seemed fine.

    Guys, why is it when I am in Notepad and I add Sauriks stuff, its saves as a "text document" and will not work in itunes?

    How do I change it from a "text document" to a file?

    In Vista, normal users are not allowed to save the hosts file, so the easiest way to edit it is to run notepad as an administrator.

    1. Go to start and either search for “notepad” or go to All Programs > Accessories
    2. Right click “notepad” and select the “Run as Administrator Option.”
    3. Once Notepad opens go to File > Open and browse to “CWindows\System32\Drivers\etc”
    4. Set the file filter to “All Files”
    5. Select and Open “hosts”
    6. Edit it and save it.

    If you get an error about it being read only:

    1. Go to File > Open, right click the “hosts” file and select properties
    2. Uncheck read-only at the bottom and click OK.
    3. Click Cancel to go back to notepad”
    4. Save it

    Do it twice, you will get the error twice. Then, search these forums for help on how to get the thing to boot into 3.1.3 -- search 1015 error. It is a very common issue. After that, you wait until someone comes to free us out of jail...

    I bought a previously unlocked 3GS that was upgraded to 4.0 when I got it. I'm pretty sure the blobs are on file with Cydia but how do I find out if they are or not? Thanks!

    you could run tinytss thats what I just did.. but not sure how you will get on if you are running 4 but you could try it and select a different fw in the drop down box in tinytss
    http://thefirmwareumbrella.blogspot.com/

    Change your hosts file to read 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    you will need your ecid and then run tinytss in advanced options paste your ecid and select your device version fw..select cydia and it will contact cydia server to see if it has your blobs there if it has click save ssh

    Ugh. I have iOS4 installed without having previously jailbroken the phone. I don't have any blobs on file or whatever, so my attempts to downgrade aren't working.

    Files needed

    Blackra1n.exe

    iPhone 3.1.2

    iPhone 4.0 <-----customized with quickpwn

    Host <---- address changed with cydia shsh


    Step 1

    Replace host file located in your hard drive wth the modified host file

    Location C:Windows/System32/drivers/etc

    If the host file is not there just place the new host file into the above location.

    Place blackra1n in the following location in your hard drive

    Location c:Program/Files Common Files/Apple/Apple Application Support

    Once you put blackra1n into the above location right click and create shorcut

    Place shortcut onto desktop<---easier to get to later

    step 2

    Run itune 9.1

    step 3

    Put iphone into recovery mode.

    Power the phone off (not stand by)

    Once the phone is off press and hold the home button

    while holding the home button plug the phone into the computer

    itune will say the iphone is in recovery mode.

    press and hold the "Shift" key and click recovery/restore on itune

    a new window will pop up asking for a file

    located iphone 3.1.2 then click ok

    The phone will go into recovery firm upgrade

    step 4

    after all done itune will give a error of 1015

    now run blackra1n

    iphone will go into a recovery again.

    Now your iphone should reboot and be on running 3.1.2

    step 5

    power off the iphone (not standby)

    Press and hold home button while holding plug the iphone into computer

    Itune will say Iphone is in recovery mode.

    when I go to hosts, I type what saurik says in order to have itunes go to cydia, but if I want to close the window, it won't let me, it'll say that it can't save. I don't know what to do or how?
