Thread: 3GS stuck in recovery loop

@shitake83 Tiny umbrella wont be able to read it if it isnt booted up. You need to find out your ecid and put it into tiny umbrella manually, then you can save your SHSH.

ok so now im back home.
ive found out my ecid and manually added a device to tinyumbrella.
tinyumbrella saved 2 shsh
iPhone 3GS 4.2.1 / iPhone 3GS 4.2b3
i may sound silly but what would my next step be ??
@rebbychebby: Download snowbreeze 2.1 , with this tool you can create a custom firmware of your desired FW , i also created mine with this one. ( i downloaded the ipsw from apple ).
then you have to put your phone into pwned dfu mode. i used resn0w for this case.
after that, youre able to install the custom firmware through itunes, with the shift + click on restore.
it worked for me, but now im stuck at the dfu loop i hope x98car has a trick for me with the shsh's

im really really happy that my phone is NOT bricked.
i finally managed to get out of the dfu loop like this
1. download 'usbview'
2. start usbview: check your iPhone, on the right side there is some information about your phone. look for ECID and copy it. (iPhone must be plugged into pc/mac)
3. save the SHSH of your phone (it will take a little bit: if you check 'log' you can see some information to which version your phone can be restored)
4. (after youve done it the phone will show normally in TU , yes i know it wasnt there before if its in dfu loop)
select your phone in TU and click exit recovery.
your phone will restart to itunes connect screen.
--- YOURE OUT OF THE DFU LOOP ----
5. i used redsn0w to start in dfu mode again
6. i installed the original firmware 4.2.1 , it said error 1015 after that
7. i run redsn0w on the phone
8. now im stuck at the connect to itunes again
-> im tryin to install a custom 4.1 and then ill tell you

installed CUSTOM FW 4.1 through itunes and i am back to the itunes connect screen.
what can i do now ??
im really happy im actually seeing the device work, rather than having the screen black or the apple logo on and the phone beeping every 10 seconds

I dont know how you are able to restore to 4.1 without SHSH. Shouldnt be possible. Do you know what bootrom your 3GS is?
As for what you can do now, if you are on the emergency call screen you can either use a official sim to activate with in itunes or use redsnow to activate it. Just run redsnow, point it to the regular 4.1 firmware and do not choose any of the options.
