Thread: Downgrade from 4.1 without SHSH?
10-08-2010, 01:38 PM #1Downgrade from 4.1 without SHSH?
Hey, I'm trying to figure out how to downgrade so I can jailbreak...
I've never jailbroken before so I'm without SHSH blobs. After much experimentation I've found out that I can easily upgrade and downgrade between 4.1 and 4.2. Sadly I can't downgrade below 4.1.
I hear greenpois0n is coming with a SHAtter exploit to do certain iOS 4 devices with the exception of 3gs. Furthermore I've also heard that a person of the name comex is working on a 3gs specific exploit. Supposedly they're to come this Sunday around 10am.
So anyone have any tips or advice on how to jailbreak my 3gs 4.1 or downgrade then jailbreak?
(I have tried the Pwnage tool and created a jailbroken firmware 4.1 though it failed to restore onto my 3gs)

without SHSH blobs saved its impossible to go DOWN to anything other then the latest Firmware. As apple won't sign the device.Being an i can be a lot of pressure. you have to live right up to the small point.

I'm in the same boat I have no blobs saved prior to 4.1 and as far as I know I'm on the old bootrom will I ever be able to jailbreak as all the info appears to be based on the new bootrom

I've been watching limera1n and it appears that it can jailbreak the old bootroom iPhone 3gs...
Is it safe? Is it untethered? Is it reversible? Should I go for it?

limera1n is safe, just installed (3GS), works great but still have to wait for ultrasn0w for unlock (sucks!)

Hope it works for you too.

The blog appears very convincing.
It goes through methods of creating the SHSH blobs.

I think the whole problem is that he was sure there weren't any SHSHs stored on Cydia and that TinyUmbrella can somehow create them. Neither of this is true.
If you want, you can read up on SHSHs here: Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) and here: The Firmware Umbrella
The first is an article by Saurik and on the second link, you can find a readme that explains how TinyUmbrella functions. Both are quite good reads and will get you some knowledge about SHSHs and the downgrade process.
All of this isn't really important now though, as the 3GS can now be jailbroken by limera1n.com - so go there if you want to jailbreak.We're all just toymakers in the game of life.

Yeah, kinda figured when I tried his method with no success.
Though Limera1n worked perfectly! I had to get one of my 10 year old pcs, install xp, update it, install iTunes, then run Limera1n to jailbreak my phone. I only have macs, except for some stone age pcs.

I have also run limra1n without any issues
downloaded ********** 3.3.5
all seems to work OK
This is my 1st Jailbreak so i,m still trying to figure some things out
like how do you remove the apple clock from the lock screen if you want to use another theme?

Using limra1n will this work with new bootrom 3Gs?

OK - I ready Saurik's post on shsh. But I'm still "scared". I am at 4.1, still have an old baseband (05.11.07) and want to go back to 3.1.2. I used tinyumbrella to save the shsh blobs from 3.1.2, but saved them locally, not on Cydia's server. So how do I do this whole process of restoring to 3.1.2? I don't want to go into tinyumbrella now and "Save my SHSH", won't that wipe out my olde 3.1.2 SHSHs?

I have saved my 3.1.2 blobs using tiny. I haven't done this with 4.1 as I don't care about 4.1. I'm just wondering, can I follow Saurik's steps in his post Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) even though my blobs are local and not on his server? Do I need to change the host file?
