    firm: 3.1.3
    modem: 5.12.01
    bootrom: old bootrom

    Currently not JB'd. stock 3.1.3

    I jb'd 3.1.3 using spirit, then found out that its not going to work with pwnagetool for OS 4.0, so i restored using a stock 3.1.3

    3.1.2 was the first FW you could load PWN without a previous Pwn. 3.1.3 had to be PWND already.

    3gs, was on 4.0 trying to downgrade to 3.1.2
    You are getting 1015 is because your BB is not downgradable, don't worry, you are in a loop. Use ireb 3.1.2, quickpwn22 or redsnow to bootup your Iphone into Emergency.

    Hi Guys , the conditions to use Pwned 4.0 from Pwnage Tools 4.0 to jailbreak iOS 4.0 are the following

    If you have the old bootrom
    Must be jailbroken by any tools except Spirit jailbreak.
    Must update Itunes to 9.2 ( Somehow it made my Quickpwn22.1 non functional ), in other words, Itunes 9.2 seems to screw jailbreaking tools up.

    Ok well it looks like I am royally scr*w'd. As I never knew about the SHSH blobs and I upgraded to iOS4 without pointing my host file to saurik As of now I have 2 perfectly working non-jailbroken or JAILed iphone 3GSes running iOS4 on AT&T. Neither of these phones have ever been touched by a jailbreak software. is there anything I can do to unlock and jailbreak the phones. I want to give them to my sister in Belgium and need an unlock desperately.

    I used spirit on 3.1.3 before, is that the problem?

    appreciate any help.

    ok, bit of a weird question, but does anybody have problems with the light sensor after upgrading to os4? for backlighting, its working fine, but in a call, once the sensor is covered and the screen goes black, it doesnt "wake up" anymore. if i press power or home repeatedly, then after a bit the screen turns on again. the call works, everything works, but the screen doesnt want to turn back on. any idea whats up? im on a 3gs, using the custom firmware that someone put on this thread (though now i read that its not allowed... oh well.)

    if someone could get back to me soon, this a really annoying problem!

    It won't do you any good to run 3.1.3. since it cannot be jailbroken EITHER now that your phone is on 4.0 official so just stick with it until there is an unlock/jailbreak for 4.0

    Hi I'm new here. I want to upgrade to ios4.0 but I'm not sure if I could jailbreak my 3gs after. Right now my cydia says this device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS: 3.1.2, 3.1.3. My version is 3.1.2 (7D11), the model is MC131ZP and the modem firmware is 05.11.07. My 3gs is tethered jailbroken by blackra1n. I hope you guys can help me. ^^

    Thanks in advance~

    First, I would like to thank the OP for the helpful information. I successfully downgrade my oldboot 3GS from 4.0 to 3.1.2, got error 1015, ran blackra1n and go out of the loop, googled for a custom 3GS 4.0 firmware and found one that hopefully is the right one. Now, I am a windows user and have one more question that I could not determine through reading this thread several times. Do I place my phone into DFU mode and then restore to the custom firmware using iTunes, or is there a program that i need to use (aka pwnage tool which is for mac). Simple question right. Thanks for any clear responses.
