Thread: Help needed to restore jailbroken 3g 3.1.2

    Default Help needed to restore jailbroken 3g 3.1.2
    Hi,
    I need to take my jailbroken 3G iphone running 3.1.2 to the apple store to get a problem sorted where the phone randomly goes into headphone mode. I have run pkgbackup and aptbackup and synced and backed up the phone. How do I restore it back to a genuine un-jailbroken phone before I take i into the store, can anyone advise me how to do the restore?

    Many thanks
    Nick

    If you want to stay on 3.1.2, download the firmware, and hold shift key, click restore and point to the 3.1.2 firmware you downloaded and it will restore to factory fresh OS.

    blkcadi, it will not work, simnce apple will not let you restore 3.1.2...
    Now hope you have store back up on cydia...
    look for ECID_Grabber and fw-umbrella-semaphore-222.
    Go to google do a search for How to backup your ECID SHSH file and How to Create Your Own Local iTunes Restore Server using your ECID.
    This will help you.

    It will work. It is a 3G. They do not require signing by Apple.

    Thanks for the replies. I am pretty sure the Genius will upgrade the phone to 3.1.3 (especially if its swapped) so can I jailbreak a 3.1.3 3G?
    Thanks

    It doesn't matter unless you require an unlock. You can always drop 3.1.2 back on it when you get it back. Or run a custom 3.1.3 firmware if you like.

    Good evening Confucious!

    It's lunchtime here - just nipping out to get some food

    The 3G can be JB on 3.13 using RedSn0w.

    OK just doing a restore from itunes, is that all I need to un-jailbreak? I've an appointment tomorrow with a genius!!

    SOrry does it need to be set-up as a new phone or restored from my backup?

    Ok, I persuaded them to swap the faulty iphone free of charge, so its now running 3.1.3 whats the best/easiest way to now re-jailbreak it?
