Hey guys, i had been searching and reading through this forum but i cant find any answers to my question. It might sound silly to some of you but since i'm new to this, so ya bear with me.
I'm trying to jailbreak + unlock this iphone 3gs, 3.1 firmware but first i want to safe the shsh file so if anything happened i can restore to 3.1 firmware but the umbrella doesnt let me do that. everytime when i click on submit, it tells me that it cannot create the file. The only available ones are to create 3.1.2/3 firmware and not 3.1.
Then i tried to upgrade to 3.1.2 so i can jailbreak with blackra1n but apple doesnt let me either; even i have the 3.1.2 firmware file. ( I did it in DFU mode with shift+restore )
- I found out that apple doesnt sign the something contract that's why i cant upgrade.. is there anyway i can do it?
So ya i'm trying to jailbreak my 3gs 3.1 firmware. Any suggestion of what program i should use or should i upgrade it to some other firmware before i can jailbreak or etc. Please help me.
I'm stuck with this for almost a week trying to figure this out. I greatly appreciate your help and thank you for spending a few minutes of your life reading this out.

Firstly, if you have 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 saved and try to restore to that you need to ensure you have pointed your hosts to saurik. Take a look here:
Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)
In re of JB 3.1 take a look at Redmond Pie and it will guide you on how to do this.
