I have upgraded my MC iPhone 3GS to OS4.0 but found very quicky that there is no jailbreak for this combination. Is there any way to restore 3.1.3 so I can go back to JB with the MC model or am I screwed until someone breaks 4.0?

I have been looking around on this site and others for a while to see if I can downgrade a 3GS from iOS4 that I may buy from a friend. He never had the phone jailbroken or unlocked but he recently upgraded to iOS4 so I wanted to make sure that it's impossible now to perform any type of jailbreak. Can anyone confirm that for me?

Hi there, I accidently updated to 4.0 and now cant unlock/jailbreak. I dont know what SHSH is or never heard of it but since morning ive been researching and I now understand what it is.
My problem is that I did not create a SHSH backup when I was on 3.1.2 so how can I get one? Would it work if I use someone else's backup?
I redirected to sauriks server but useless with no SHSH. Please help. Thanks

If you have been jailbroken before and did not save SHSH thru cydia before no public jailbreak will work as of right now..

If you didn't have it jailbroken with "3.1.2 and save your SHSH blobs" your wasting your time if your at 4.0 and 3GS you have to wait.. Sorry.

Hey guys, my 3gs is currently on 3.0 firmware, jailbreak and unlock. Would like to update to 4.0 firmware, jailbreak and unlock. Will sn0wbreeze work for me or do I need to be at 3.1.2 firmware for it to work??? Thanks in advance
07-03-2010, 04:54 PM #235
BUT, now I cannot understand the last step, "upgrade to a Pwned 4.0 FW" Is there somewhere I can download this firmware? I went through an arduous process with snowbreeze extracting and recreating its own 4.0 firmware only to have I tunes give me a 1600 error and fail when I tried to restore with it...

When restoring my official 3gs on IOS4 (new firmware) back to 3.1.2, can it be done via i-tunes in the normal way, i.e. hold the shift and restore to the 3.1.2.firmware?
Yes, you need to download a custom Jailbroke version of IOS4, there are plenty of links for it for example this one:
Download Custom iOS 4 Firmware for iPhone 3GS 3G [IPSW] | CrispyTech
Just perform restore in normal way via i-Tunes
Damn,I tried it and I receive cannot be restore, error 3194, I tried both norma mode in iTunes and also DFU, my screen is black, not usb and apple logo...
What is causing this guys/girls?

It was jailbroken and unlocked under 3.1.3 but I unfortunatelly upgrade to 4.0 I succesfully downgrade to 3.1.3 but is unjailbreakable with nothing. Have you any hint? I am very disappointed with this Crapple. I should buy some open system like Android, I believe!

I have an iphone 3gs on 4.0. I just bought it from someone and I don't think it has ever been jailbroken/unlocked. Would this procedure work to be able to downgrade to 3.1.2 even if i don't have any shs blobs saved????

I couldn't get the "iRecovery" part to work on Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit, so I had to do that portion on an old XP computer.
Thank God that Mommy and Daddy still use XP!Isnít it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too?

I have an iPhone 3G[S] running on 3.1.2 (7D11) with boot rom 05.11.07. I have even catched my SHSH in SAURIK server.
For bad signal recption issues I am trying to restore back the same IOS 3.1.2 again. But how ever I try to do it I am in a dead lock with error 1016 during the restore process.
Later after a little reserch I found that my SHSH files are catched for OS 3.1.3 (in Cidya home page it says "This device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS:3.1.3" attached screen shot).
Now my questions are...
1) Is this the reason for the restore getting failed?
2) Do I need to upgrade to 3.1.3 or 4.0 and then restore to 3.1.2?
Kindly help me in understanding restore process. My iPhone is nearly dead for months.
