i have one question, i did the process as "Melech518" and i got both of the files with me, but i just wanted to ask that the files that i have are Modified on "21st May" where as the screen shot that iClearified posted it shows that the file is Modified today (whenever they did the restore and got the files), are all my iPhone's iBEC and iBSS files the same whenever i do the restore or the ones we need for the JB should be modified as its shown there? thanks.

Just wanted to check that I have done this right.
I have followed the guide on page 1 of this thread.
I have a folder called "iPhone Temporary Files.noindex" & in there are 3 DMG files, BuildManifest.plist, Firmware Folder, Kernelcache.release and a restore.plist
Do I need to do anything else?

I just hate how this makes the front page news whereas GeoHots purplera1n doesn't get a mention. And i hate how even the dev team say you don't need this if you have been to purplera1n.com. The only benefit is being able to stock restore to 3.0.
Dev team havent even showed proof of their jailbreak yet on the 3GS, and they ALWAYS release pictures/ a video.

07-02-2009, 08:36 AM #73Guide for Windows on its way?
Is there a guide to do this on windows? I got my ECID and created the file through PurpleRa1n but think it is best i follow the dev teams method and get BOTH files. As mentioned, they will end up implementing the files into the jailbreak.

Hi! I think this method does not work!!
I compared both.. I think the files you get with this method are the same for everyone! They both have the same size like in the original firmware.
After capturing them in the tmp folder they have a few more bytes..
On Mac I just typed that in terminal before the dfu restore and I got both files: "while sleep 1; do cp -R /tmp/PersonalizedRestoreBundle.* ~/Desktop; done"

Thanks for the guide. I don't think I'll bother with it though until the jailbreak is released.21.5" iMac 3.06 GHz Intel Core i3 l 15" MacBook Pro 2.2 GHz Intel Core i7 l 17" PowerBook 1.67 GHz

Cleanup At Starup & iPhone Temporary Files.noindex would be the same names for my stuff on my Mac as his. So to keep our phones seperate in my iMac, I have to rename something but I think it won't work if I rename the files?

The method posted in the first post of this thread will net get you the correct files. The IBSS and IBEC obtained in the "Cached At Logon" folder is the unsigned one that is inside the firmware bundle. That's why EVERYONE's has the same date.
If you've read dev-team blog or twitter posts from dev-team members, you'll know that the IBSS is custom signed by apple, over the internet, when you do a restore, which means the modified date will be the same date/time you do your restore. This is why the ones people are grabbing from the Cached At Logon folder are wrong! Also, consider the fact that the dev-team blog is linking to iClarified's guide as their recommended steps.
The only way to get your signed one is to get them from /tmp (Mac) or %temp% (PC) via method posted in iClarified or other methods. Grabbing the IBSS this way is HARD though, but it only shows up for about 3 seconds.
If you are on a PC, diffrnt setup a grabber that watched all files going through the %temp% path and grabs the files for you. difrnt.com ECID Grabber & iBEC and iBSS Grabber
If you are on a Mac, do the following:
-type: mkdir Pwnage_save
-type: while [ 1 ]; do cp -R /tmp/* /Users/your_username/Pwnage_save/; done
-Start a DFU mode restore
Both IBEC and IBSS are made during DFU mode, but to be safe, I suggest you also use the above method during a REGULAR restore, which dumps IBEC only. I haven't run md5's against the IBEC's from the 2 different modes though. They may indeed be the same.
If you look at MuscleNerd's twitter stream, he comments that it's important to get your IBEC and your IBSS. The ECID grab w/purplera1n gets you your signed IBSS (which you also get through the restore method from temp location), but not your IBEC. So you want to do these steps to get your IBEC as well.
At the end of the day, better safe then sorry if you want to JB 3GS. Do every method that pops up IMO.

Quick question for the experts -- I ran the "iBEC and iBSS Grabber" program and performed a DFU restore. The resulting files captured are named:
iBEC.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu (103 KB)
iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu (103 KB)
Were my efforts successful?
