Ive got a 3GS JB and unlocked witch blackra1n on 3.1.2 firmware 05.11.07 new bootrom (the way ive bought it)
Ive tried to make the JB untethered with Spirit but didnt restore the phone before using Spirit (had no ideea i was supposed to) and now its stuck on the "connect to itunes" screen
Any ideea how to restore it to a functional phone ?
If i restore using itunes will probably update it to 4.1 and as far as i know it there is no carrier unlock for 4.1
Any oppinions are welomed, thanks for the help
Btw i dont have any kind of backup for the phone

Since you're on a Windows computer, you can wait until the new version for 4.1 of sn0wbreeze is released. Then you can update your phone to 4.1 via custom firmware which won't upgrade your baseband and you'll be able to keep your unlock. This will work on both the old and new bootroms.
Not sure when exactly it will be released but it should definitely be out soon.

Try TinyUmbrella & see if it will kick it out of recovery mode then see if your still jailbroken..

Did you ever save any of your SHSHs in Cydia?

Well then, like Cid6.7 said, try TinyUmbrella to try and kick it out of Recovery Mode. If TU won't do it, try Recboot. That's your only choice if you don't have SHSHs or like you said, you'll be forced to 4.1 and lose your unlock.

If you iphone is already in recovery mode that is fine.
Now I want you to restore to 4.0.1 (assuming you have 4.0.1 shsh blogs)
Point your hosts files towards Cyiad.
Make sure you have atleast Itunes 9.2
Run Notepad as Admin , open up hosts file and add this line :
save it and reboots your pc
Now do the Shift + Restore 4.0.1
Put your official sim to activate
Jailbreak with Jailbreakme.com from Safari on your iphone
Or After the 4.0.1 restore and if you don't have the official sim card.
Run Limera1n to hactivate and jailbreak for you.
