I just downloaded sn0wbreeze 2.7.3 and i have a feeling the menu has change a little since the op put together the instructions in this thread. i was wondering if someone could confirm which selections are correct:
1. browse and select the stock firmware (3gs: iPhone2,1_4.3.3_8J2_Restore.ipsw)
2. menu pops up regarding bootrom - select "old bootrom"
3. select a mode - select "expert mode"
4. now i have 5 options: General, Unlocks, Custom boot logos, Custom Package, Build IPSW - i guess this is the one i have most trouble with
can someoine please confirm? Thanks!
*3gs, 4.0.1, 5.13.04, do not depend on unlock but would like to have that feature for the future

So you have an official SIM. select expert mode and go to General and uncheck the box to "activate" then continue, then select to build the custom fw.
P.S. The menus didn't change I just did things a little out of order so I could explain the difference between creating an activated fw and one that is not activated.

a few questions about upgrading to 4.3+fw and jailbreaking.
hi guys, first i want to apologize for this question because most of you will probably consider it to be a noobish question.
i got a 3gs about a year and a half ago. it was on FW 3.12. i jail broke it and unlocked it. when 4.01 FW came out i just did a upgrade through itunes, and jailbroke my phone on the jailbreakme.com site.
its been a very long time since ive upgraded.
my baseband is 5.13.04.
my question is, is it possible for me to upgrade the firmware to something newer like a 4.3 firmware and jailbreak and unlock? i am currently with tmobile, so unlocking is very important for me.
the main reason why i would like to upgrade to a newer firmware is for application use. some apps i want to use require the latest firmware.
i just want to make sure that its possible to update to a newer firmware, jail break it, and unlock it.
i dont want to upgrade to a newer firmware if it can't JB and unlock, because then i would have no use for the phone (with tmobile).
also i did a backup of the shsh files, but im not sure what they are, or what they do. i just backed them up because it was recommended.

Ok now to make sre do you have your 4.3.3 shsh's? If not you cannot currently upgrade as the 4.3.4 is currently tethered. Now if you do what you'd want to do is either download sn0wbreeze which is for windows or pwnagetool which is for mac. Download a 4.3.3 firmware from Firmware - Downloads - ModMyi Forums as well. Afterwards you'd want to open pwangetool or sn0wbreeze depending on which you downloaded and choose the 4.3.3 firmware that you downloaded. Build the firmware and choose to activate if you do not have the AT&T sim card. Then put the phone into pwned dfu mode. Open tinyumbrella and start the TSS server. then open iTunes up and it should detect the iPhone. After it detects the iPhone click shift (windows) or alt (mac) and then restore. Choose the custom firmware and this is vital because if you choose the wrong one you risk putting an unlockable baseband onto the phone. It will restore and you should then be on 4.3.3 with a 05.13.04 baseband. Disable 3G and then install ultrasn0w.

so this is what i have to do right?
1. get snowbreeze
2. download an official firmware
3. open snowbreeze and select the firmware i just downloaded. (got it here iPhone 3GS 4.3.3 - Downloads - ModMyi Forums)
4. in snowbreeze choose activate, because i do not have a att sim.
here is what im misunderstanding, what is pwned dfu mode?
5. after getting into pwned dfu mode, i open tinyumbrella and start tss server.
6. open itunes and select the custom firmware.
after this the process is complete? what do i use to unlock the phone again?
thank you for the help, and sorry for all the questions.

download tinyumbrella as well to see if your 4.3.3 shsh's are saved The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella
pwned dfu mode allows you to restore to a custom firmware. if you do not have them saved i'd stay at 4.0.1. Hopefully someone will take over as I am about to go to bed.
07-19-2011, 11:23 PM #987
ok i checked tinyumbrella and clicked "save all shsh"
in the box that says all saved shsh's, it shows 4.01, 4.1, 4.3.4, and a few that say 5b.
since i dont have the 4.3.3 shsh's i should just stick with 4.01 huh.
what im trying to do is use software to be able to stream movies from my pc to my phone through wi-fi. i heard that this is only possible with firmwares 4.3 and up.

4.1 is what you'd probably want. Less buggy than 4.0.1. I don't know what 4.3.3 offers really, so I can't really answer that question. Ultimately I'd suggest 4.2.1 if anything but it looks like you don't have SHSHs for that.

If you mean AirPlay, that was introduced with 4.2
TU will grab blobs for any version Apple are signing when you run it, currently 4.3.4 and 5.0b 1-3He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

isn't tu just for reverting back to an older version? ie: if he goes up to 4.3.3 and has issues, then he can only come back down to those for which he has the shsh saved - in this case 4.01 or 4.1
seems like all he needs to do is use sn0wbreeze to make a custom ipsw for 4.2.1 or 4.3.3 or whatever 4.x is desired and just tell sn0wbreeze to preserve baseband - actually i think it defaults to preserve baseband. then use redsn0w to enter pwnd dfu mode and then itunes to shift-restore the custom ipsw.--

TU allows you to utilize SHSHs blobs to restore to any unsigned fw. It doesn't have to be a downgrade. You can be on 4.1 and want 4.3.3 but not 4.3.4 and restore to 4.3.3 with SHSHs bc Apple stopped signing 4.3.3 already. So you can upgrade with TU as well.
Custom firmwares also require SHSHs if like I said the fw version is no longer signed, so no a custom fw is of no use either if SHSHs for 4.3.3 are not saved.

3) Stock 4.3.3 ipsw (Felixbruns.de)
There is no option to download 4.3.3 only 4.3
07-20-2011, 03:04 PM #994
Then check MMi's Downloads section

Im just having no luck with upgrading from 4.0.1 to 4.3.3
I did everything in your tutorial including the tiny umbrella unckeck step and I still get errors 3014 and 3194 or something like that when trying to restore to the custom firmware created by snowbreeze. Im using itunes 184.108.40.206 and my 3gs is on jailbroken and unlocked with ultrasnow. baseband is 5.13.04
07-20-2011, 03:16 PM #996
I have to update. 4.3.3 just recently stopped being signed by Apple. SHSHs are required for 4.3.3 now. You'll need your 4.3.3 SHSHs to upgrade without being forced up to 4.3.4
Edit: It's updated. You can view it again and follow the instructions listed, if you find that you have saved SHSHs for 4.3.3.
