got the cert, all went fine.
strange that something this important relating to a 3GS jailbreak is not front page news on modmyi and other iPhone sites........

Just curious, is the file just a plain small file with the file name being purplera1n-(your #)? Or did my Safari screw up on the downloading?

I noticed nobody has asked yet, probably because it's a stupid question especially since the thread title clearly states '3GS' --- but here goes anyway . Don't flame me - ok?
Is there an ECID number on older iPhones (2G, 3G) ? .... and if so, would it ever be necessary to retrieve and get the iBSS certificate?
07-01-2009, 06:20 AM #51
No it's for 3GS only.THANK OR DIE

i did the steps on the main page, but when i copied the ECID # into the box on the website, i hit enter and it has been "loading" page for like 5-10 minutes now. is this normal?
im on a mac, have a 3gs, not sure whats going on...
*** edit** refreshed it and pasted again and i got a text file with purplera1ny day- 1234xxxxxxxxxxxx as the title
when i open the text file it is just a bunch of jumbled characters, is that normal?

I bought my 3Gs on the day it was released and I haven't restored it since.
I got ECID for my 3Gs but it's not 16 digit #, it contains letters as well
is that normal?? or dose that mean my ECID save won't work in the future?
07-01-2009, 02:55 PM #56
It should be 16. A bunch of zeros then numbers and letersTHANK OR DIE

Ok, as easy as this seems I have screwed up. I did not catch the little box deal at the bottom. I imstead ran purple rain and it updated my phone.
I am not sure what it did to the phone. It rebooted and all seems fine.....how do I undo this purple rain as I do not want a jailbroker phone???
BTW I did get the purple rain file with my eCID....I see the "Freeze" application. If I delete it is it no harm no foul?
