I currently have a iPhone 3GS, running 3.1.3. I used Spirit to jb the phone back in June, and it works fine. i would like to upgrade to 4.x (or 4.1 if the jb works for this newly released firmware). I have been reading online for weeks now and am really confused. Some sites say to use spirit 2 pwn and then use another app to jb, or other say redsn0w, or even the phone based one jailbreakme dot com. what would be the best process to upgrade my phone to a 4.x firmware load and have it jailbroken? Any ideas would help out. Thanks.

First you need to determine if you have old bootrom or new 3GS. Download iDetector iH8sn0w.com | Jailbreak your iPod touches and iPhones
This will tell you what bootrom you have and you can go from there.

i looked at the ih8snow page, but it only shows a windows based program and i have a mac. is there a mac version of that software? or is there another way to determine my boot rom version? thanks for your help.

On mac you can put the iphone into dfu. iClarified - iPhone - How to Put an iPhone Into DFU Mode
Then try this: iClarified - iPhone - How to Check the Bootrom Version of Your iPhone (Mac)

Ok, that means you have new bootrom. You cannot use spirit2pwn on new bootrom or custom firmware. Your only chance to go to 4.0/4.0.1 and use jailbreakme.com is if you have SHSH for those firmwares. You can use my guide here to see, and if you do to restore and jailbreak: http://modmyi.com/forums/general/725...e-restore.html
Or just stay where you are and wait for the new jailbreak to come out.

i ran that tiny umbrella program and below is what was displayed:

09/23/2010 20:39:38.539 You have saved your SHSH locally and the request was sent to CYDIA. This means that CYDIA DOES have your SHSH. Do NOT bug semaphore about the Cydia home page showing this version.
with that said, would i be able to use the 4.1 update that itunes keeps asking me, then run jailbreakme.com? if not, you mentioned to wait for another jailbreak to come out, which one would you be referring to, or wait for a new one to come out? Thanks for your help.

ok, with that said, would the next step be to download the ipsw for 4.0.1 for the 3gs, run tiny umbrella, then run the tss server and then restore it via itunes restore process?
09-23-2010, 08:05 PM #10
correct, once the restore is done jailbreak with jailbreakme

the "start tss server" button is greyed out in tiny umbrella. is there anything that i am missing, does the phone have to be in recovery mode, or dfu mode, or something else?

when i open tiny umbrella in spotlight on mac, it asks for my admin password, then starts up, but says:
09/23/2010 21:42:08.637 NOT running as administrator OR your hosts file is not editable - Cannot listen on port 80! TSS Server will not work!
i searched google for the "tss server not working" and found a page saying that i had to add this to my existing host file, 126.96.36.199 gs.apple.com. tried it and rebooted my mac, but it still shows tss server greyed out, is there another ip & host name i need to add?
nevermind, i read the FAQ on the tiny umbrella site and what i was doing was double clicking on the tiny umbrella icon from the dmg file and running it. it says to drag the dmg file to your desktop or app folder, and it worked. its doing the restore now and looks like its almost done. thanks for the help again.
