    If your files were grabbed by cydia you can now restore to 3.0 and re-JB so you don't need to worry any more.

    Cydia does not allow you to grab files anymore...? Message is gone from homepage.

    I did grab my files before but lost them or I think I deleted off my portable HDD somehow So now I have nothing backup on my 3GS.

    iPhone 3GS/3.0FW Jailbreaked. Any way I can get my ECID again? Cydia?

    Thanks

    Didn't you let Cydia grab them?
    It's to late to get the 3.0x files
    As from tonight Cydia will be grabbing 3.1 signed files

    No I manually grabbed them when this was first talked about months back from Geohot. I used the website and etc and saved my code but I lost it somehow...
    I seen Cydia was able to grab but what happened was I opened Cydia and allowed it to be refreshed and as I was reading the homepage about it, the iPhone refreshed and it was then gone? I was not able to allow Cydia to grab my ECID for me.
    So im SOL on my iPhone 3GS with 3.0FW?
    I am not gonna even upgrade to 3.1FW until a JB is released. Once a JB is released for 3.1FW, I can upgrade and grab the ECID for later on....?

    If JB is all you need you should be OK - but yopu were warned not to lose your files!
    Cydia will start grabbing 3.1 files soon - if it asks, say yes!

    Yes I was warned lol and well buying a new laptop and xfering my old data from laptop to new one could have just been misplaced in a wrong folder, ill do some more searching
    Yes I just like to JB and I should be fine, thought I would ask some questions to make sure.
    I see Cydia is grabbing files for 3.1, maybe when I update to 3.1 I can use it to grab the files...

    Thanks dude for ur help.

    From my previous posts and saying I lost my ECID code, well... I actually grab it again today.
    I used USBview, went into recovery mode (iPhone 3GS 3.0FW) clicked on Apple iPhone in recovery and was able to see my ECID. I saved it and I went to Geohotz website. I enter the code and got my saved file.

    With this ECID code, am I safe to restore my iPhone 3GS which is currently running 3.0FW but I would like to restore from fresh again. Am I able to do so?

    Thanks!

    Not if you don't want to go to 3.1!
    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something

    But lets say I got to restore my iPhone 3GS and of course it will go to 3.1, can't I use the ECID and use 3GS downgrade assistant tool or w/e and go back to 3.0?
    I also forgot that if I do go to 3.1FW through restore, my baseband will be updated, right?
    So I should NOT do this and just wait till iPhone 3GS pwnage tool and not update baseband?

    ^Yes it will be updated.
    You should wait.
    and if your ECID SHSH wasn't grabbed by Cydia then you can't downgrade.

    So I have a 3.0 3GS that I wanted to jailbreak, but I don't have the ECID or 2 other files.
    I've tried JB'ing and it looks like it's not going to be possible until 3.1 is broken, right?
    Does it make sense for me to go ahead and upgrade to 3.1 or is there something I can do?
    Thanks for any advice!

    You can jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.8 on 3.0
    If you need to unlock, DO NOT update to 3.1!
    I wouldn't update anyways until a JB is out though..

    Just like to re-iterate what angie said - it can be done but if there is a problem the normal way out is to restore and start again. With the 3GS if you restore you will be stuck on 3.1
    Far better to wait.
