Great write up! Thanks!
I'm at a JB 3.1.2 and thinking about 4.0.1. My stomach gets butterflies when I think about upgrading. I hate it! It's my own fault at not knowing what's what. Got 1 question though, downloaded tiny umbrella, pressed the save shsh and then the show button. Said only 4.0.2 was retorable. I didn't start the TSS server but Cydia says I have from 3.1.2, 3.1.3 shsh and so on, on file. I tried 2 different PC's but both say the same thing. Is there some way to verify that 4.0.1 is available? Am I just doing it wrong?

You have to click on advanced and select the different firmwares one by one pressing save my shsh each time.

Hi, I had the same problem. All I did was redownload my SHSH's from cydia via tinyumbrella, and redownload the firmware from the internet replacing the files I was using before. Then I turned the tinyumbrella server on and restored not in DFU mode. Hey Presto it worked! Don't ask me why but it did. Maybe give this ago.

Thanks guys! I managed to get it to work. I even did it with 64bit iTunes 10.0.
Now I'm just missing all of my Cydia stuff. Time go figure out how to use PKGbackup

Although Cydia says I have 4.0, TinyUmbrella only recognizes 4.0.2.
My guess is that the ECID is messed up somehow, but I don't know how or what to do with it.
EDIT: Okay, I saved my 4.0, but still am confused :/

I can't believe I got everything to work just as it was with 3.1.2. Initially, the restoring of music and apps failed after updating to 4.0.1. But I did it again and it passed and then pkgbackup did it's job. I even have my old texts on my phone. I'm glad that's over with!! Time for a beer!

i started out not knowing to goto advanced, then select my firmware.
so it went ahead and told me that i had 4.0.2 saved JUST FINE on cydia... which is strange since my firmware is only 4.0 and i know this phone came directly from apple.
now i see i need to select firmware 4.0 and build 8A293 and i try that and it tells me:
09/02/2010 21:07:53.327 Asking CYDIA for SHSH blobs for iPhone4 4.0 (8A293)...

I am able to follow the instructions and use the Iphone 3GS 4.0 firmware from the website to update the firmware. I pointed to Cydia which says it has the SHSH for all versions upto 4.0.1
However the problem I face is that after the update, I setup as a new phone (I activate using an old AT&T sim) and the Wifi doesn't work. It was working previously with my 3GS on 3.1.2 broken with Blackra1n and unlocked using ultrasn0w.
Anyone facing the issue with Wifi problems and any workarounds?
I knew I shouldn't have upgraded and I resisted for so long but temptation got the better of me.
please please help me. I really appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

Firstly, thanks a lot for the guides. It is wonderfully easy.
I have done the following :
1) Downloaded the iphone 3gs 4.0 firmware from this site.
2) Changed hosts files on Windows 7 to include 184.108.40.206 gs.apple.com adn grayed out the 127 address.
3) Put phone into DFU mode and shift restore to new firmware downloaded in step 1.
4) Waited for phone to restart and tried both - setup as new phone and restore from an old backup.
I've done this twice and it gives me the same probblem with Wifi. It used to work fine before the upgrade. Do you think its a phone problem? I also checked the apple support website and looks like a lot of people are complaining about this. Is there a 4.0.1 OS download for the 3GS?

Oh another question. is it okay to do this upgrade using Itunes 10? That can;t be causing a wifi issue right?
09-03-2010, 12:53 PM #74
I just upgraded to 4.0 from 3.1.3 using iTunes 10, it's fine.
09-03-2010, 01:36 PM #75
Could you check the steps I wrote and see if that's exactly what you followed?
How did you activate your phone to jailbreak? Use an old inactive SIM from AT&T/O2 or use a tool?

I realized I was using the wrong firmware, and as I said in the above post, I got it to upgrade to 4.0
Also, I have a touch, not a phone. Thanks for the help!
09-04-2010, 08:38 AM #77Need help with SHSH id's info
Nevermind I found answer in post. I'm now able to see all my SHSH files
I'm trying to upgrade my jailbroken Iphone 3Gs (model MC135LL/A Firmware 05.12.01) from 3.1.3 to 4.0.1 so that I can re-jailbreak but I have not had any success. I read your post and thought I had finally found solution but unfortunately I’m getting stuck at first step. When I go to Cydia along the top of screen it says, “This device has SHSHs on file for Iphone OS/iOS: 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1. “ When I run Tiny Umbrella it reports The following Devices/ECIDs can be restored safely: iPhone 3GS 4.0.2 (8A400) – 4122196841231. Why doesn’t it detect all the SHSH's on file that Cydia Reports. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
