I used limera1n to jailbreak my 3gs, it had 3.1, after limera1n logo disappeared apple logo came and it just stays there. I tried to restore my 3gs from 3.1 to 3.1.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, til 4.0.1 none of them work. Now, it wont even go back to where it was. i didn't know about SHSH, so i started messing with my iphone, without looking whether my SHSH is saved. Is there any way to restore my iphone to any firmware other than 4.0 and up? I restored one iphone 3g 3 days ago from 3.1.1 to 3.1.3, no issue, it was never jailbroken before.
Please advice anyone.

3G devices did not need to have SHSHs before 4.0. So they are free to go anywhere in the 3.0 range.
Have you tried to use tinyUmbrella to see about your SHSH? Is your host file pointing to Saurik's server?

If you just jailbroke your 3gs , you will only have 4.1 shsh blogs. If you need an unlock, then the only way to go to 4.1 is to restore to custom firmware created either by Snowbreeze 2.0.2 or Pwnage tools 4.1.2
If you only have a pc, then run redsn0w 0.9.6b2 to put your iphone only into DFU mode and then press the shift + Restore (itunes) to browwse to custom firmware of 4.1 to preserve your baseband.

Thanks for the quick reply. Tinyumbrella says, Cydia does have your SHSH for 4.1 and 4.2b3 only. Yes, it is pointing towards saurik's server. Still getting error 3194, 1015. Before i ran limera1n jailbreak on it, it was working fine, after the limera1n jailbreak was done, it turned off, i turned it on and stuck on apple logo, do you think could it be cause of limera1n? Thanks
@Zoolman, i want to unlock it so i can use with T-mobile, i think there is no unlock for 4.1 with baseband 5.14.02 yet? or is there? Thanks
@Yeow202, actually thts what i dont know, after limera1n done, it never turned on again, just stuck on apple logo. I had running 3.1 with baseband 5.11.07 i believe, last i checked with forecast. You are saying, i can only upgrade the firmware to 4.1, but no effect on baseband, it will stay 5.11.07? I would want that, i will give it a try. But what about errors 3194, 1015 and sometimes it just stays on "preparing iphone for restore" and then unknown error. Thanks
Thanks guys for the quick reply

You have to be extremely careful at 3.1, once you screw up, that is it. I have told you that you will not have any shsh blogs other than 4.1.
What you could have done initially is at 3.1 , jailbreak with Blackra1n and then use custom firmware because you have the old bootrom.
But now everything has changed.
Now this is what you have to do to see if you can get out of recovery.
Try Exit recovery from tiny umbrella.
Do you have a Mac or PC
This is what you have to do now.
Create a custom firmware of 4.1 from Pwnage tools 4.1.2 or get it from the net.
If you have a Mac, then after creating, you will be asked to put your iphone into DFU mode and then you will have to press Alt/Option + restore and browse to the CFW of 4.1
If you have a PC, then Run redsn0w 0.9.6b2 , you will need the 4.1 ipsw.
Check only the box " Put iphone into DFU mode "
Itunes will open , if not open it yourself and press Shift + Restore to the custom firmware which you have downloaded or created yourself.
You should be able to restore successfully.
You can unlock with Ultrasn0w at your current baseband of 05.11.07

Try to use iRecovery or Tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery

I did exactly as you explained, now wont go past "preparing Iphone for restore" end up getting error, 1600, 1601.

Are you in DFU mode or recovery mode? Are you using a usb hub or a direct port? Make sure you let the program put you in DFU as the new custom firmware needs it to install.
11-11-2010, 06:33 PM #10
I am in DFU mode, i used redsn0w for that. Didn't understand what did you mean by "using usb hub or direct port"? sorry, i am not into computer much
11-11-2010, 06:37 PM #11
Is your cord plugged directly into the comp or through a different item? Do you have a redirect of your host file to Saurik's?
11-11-2010, 06:50 PM #12
So you use redsn0w to put you into dfu mode and then shift + restore to custom fw of 4.1 , right ?
Where did you get the custom firmware ?
If you don't need unlock, then restore to 4.1 and see if it works.

Don't use Snowbreeze 2.0.2, for old bootrom, and to use snowbreeze, you need to be jailbroken first at 3.1.2 and you can downgrade to that because you don't have shsh blogs.
Alright, now do this : Run redsn0w 0.9.6 b2 to put you into dfu mode and shift + restore to custom firmware of 4.1 made by Pwnage tools 4.1.2
I have made one up , activated 3gs at 4.1 by Pwnage tools. I did this over Vmware on my pc. I am going to PM you my link now.
11-11-2010, 07:19 PM #16
Yeow202, Sorry i had popup blocker on. Could you send it again?
Thanks you so much. I got it. I guess, i need to spend some more time with computer.

i accidentally erased and reset my 3G 4.0.1 jailbroken phone and i cant restore it back to 4.0.1. had my shsh (4.0 and 4.0.2)saved on cydia. somebody help
11-19-2010, 04:32 PM #20
You have a 3g, with 4.0,4.0.1, 4.0.2 firmware, the iphone running speed is slow and lag, why don't you go to 4.1.
If you do not need unlock, the restore to 4.1 and jailbreak it with 0.9.6b2.
If you do need unlock, you can restore to custom firmware created by Snowbreeze 2.1, you will need ireb 4.1 to help you to bypass errors.
You can restore to Custom firmware of 4.1 created by Pwnage tools 4.1.2
