quick question...a buddy of mine has a 3g with the 3.13 fw...he's leaving att for a couple of month til the new iphone comes out...meantime he wanted to try and use his iphone with his tmobile service...now i know there is no unlock yet for 3.13, but beings his phone was a newer release 3g, i'm hoping maybe his bootrom is 5.8...but in order to check i need to jailbreak it first obviously, but can i use this jb on his phone...as of right now he still has his active att service...so now with my 3g i used blackrain and i would always have to restore before a jb, so this spirit, i'm guessing i don't have to restore first right? i'm mean can i just plug in his phone and run spirit right?

As long as he is not currently jailbroken, I would THINK that's fine.

so how's the news with the new OS 4.0 and the iphone 3gs jailbreak?
did they figure out a jailbreak and currently working on the unlock? or still working on both?

Did you check the front page? Answers 2 of the 3 questions. And the unlock exploit is just waiting for 4.0 to drop or so it is told.

I was on 3.1.2 firmware and ran Spirit and now all I have is a bricked iPhone 3Gs… it just shows the apple logo. The holding the power button + home button and plugging in the USB cord doesn’t get me into restore mode either. Any suggestions?

Followed these steps:
"1) Power off the iPhone by depressing both the sleep/wake button on the top of the iPhone and the home button. Wait for the iPhone screen to turn black aka screen-off.
2) Depress the home button and connect the iPhone/iPod sync cable into the docking port on the bottom of the iPhone at the sametime without removing pressure on the home button.
3) You should be able to see the Apple logo coming up on the iPhone and then the recovery screen with be shown after the Apple Logo"
But 3# doesn't happen for me... no recovery screen just apple logo

Try DFU mode?
Turn off the iPhone, press power button for 5 seconds, press home button without releasing power button for 10 seconds, and then release power button but hold home button.
Do this with the iPhone off, but still connected.
You should hear the computer ding, saying new device, and iTunes pop up saying iPhone is in recovery mode.

Did that before many times... computer just doesn't recognize the device. Would it help to reboot? I did it once and it did make a noise but a pop-up said the device was unrecognized and it didn't show up in iTunes. -- even when it's plugged in and shut off the iPhone will still display the apple logo after a few seconds... now it's showing the low-battery symbol (even though it's plugged in)

You're using W7?
Try it on another computer.
Here's what I did.
I went into my Device Manager (I hope you know how to do that), with my iPod/iPhone plugged in (DFU mode, Restore Mode, Normal, etc), and deleted the Apple USB Mobile Device drivers.
this way, when I plug it in, it should install new drivers.
After you unplug the iDevice, restart your computer, and try everything again.
If it still doesn't do much, let me know, I've got a few other tricks up my sleeve.

like the blind leading the blind...
you may want to consider actually READING the thread for answers to your questions...
05-30-2010, 04:23 PM #454
my other comp is Win7 also -- could I just delete the device drivers on my current computer?
want to repost and be helpful Tsatryan?

Ok, I will repost -
"you may want to consider actually READING the thread for answers to your questions..."
Also, you may want to look at the top of every page, and note the section called "Guides" - some people have created guides that actually give you step by step detail to do what you want to do. One word of caution - you DO have to do exactly what the guides says, and not skip things or do something different. Right off the bat, I can just tell you that you are not setting you iPhone in the proper mode. You must have the iPhone plugged in, then hold both the home and power buttons down for a little under 10 seconds, then let go of the power button while still holding the home button. Voila, your iTunes will say that you are in need of restoring.

Yes, you could just do that, also try another USB port.

I did read it. And, you didn't do what I said to do.
05-30-2010, 04:59 PM #459
I wish you were right... seriously, I did that too and it's still just showing the apple logo.

Unless you have three hands, you can't hold down the power button, home button, and also then plug in the cable. The cable must be plugged in BEFORE any of the procedure. And the timing of when you let go of the power button is critical - if you see the Apple logo, you waited too long. And, you MUST continue to hold down the home button for about 2-3 seconds AFTER letting go of the power button.
