    Unhappy help me figure out this iphone 3gs problem
    Ok, quick rundown, got my iphone 3gs for a few months now, its jailbroken (no tether) since the first day i got it. Today i was at work and suddenly i had issues with the unlock slider (it wasn't going all the way like it normal does) then when i started talking to some friends i noticed the Letters "I" "K" "J" "N" were not working anymore.

    So now i am stuck and i am not sure what is causing this.

    What i would like to know is does anyone have an idea about this type of issue and how to solve it, also if i have to do this should i restore my phone instead or backup ?

    Also i would like to know if i would have to do a restore or backup, where can i find the correct information on how to do it so i don't end up with a non jailbroken phone (only bought an iphone because i can jb it.)

    Other quick info
    I tried to restart the phone of course
    the version is 3.1.2
    firmware 05.11.07
    I didn't have themes but i had cydia apps like sbs, backgrounder

    Thanks.

    Sounds like a hardware problem to me......
    I would try going into safe mode through sbsettings and see if the letters still dont work. You can do a full restore to 3.1.3, it is fully jailbroken now. If that doesnt fix your prob, I hope you have a warranty.......

    register SHSH blob with cydia first before restore! there's a program that comes with Spirit 'SHSH blob' that will register with Cydia as well as download the ID blob file to your computer. Or else you won't be able downgrade if necessary.
    It is what it is...

    I tried the safe mode, was still the same thing, i do have a warranty for another year and half, i take care of my phone very well, no drop/scratch or such. I will try to do a full restore, reading on the new things

    what do you mean by the unlock?

    and BurnRose, ya i started doing the Firmware Umbrella method to backup the blobs.

    weird, did the restore then the first time everything worked fine and after like 2min it was back again to the same problems, i will bring it to apple store tmw.
