This is very disturbing. Afte upgrading iTunes to 9, it saw my 3G no trouble, but after connecting my 3GS it stated that it couldn't read the phone and told me to restore. I didn't do it because I'm waiting for the 3.1 JB and MMS and didn't want to go through a full restore process at 10PM or I'd still be working on it. I have my EICD, IBEC & IBSS files, but not my husbands (only have the EICD).

F*ck you stevo. You look like a skeleton. Perhaps you should focus on your health and stop being so controlling about MY device.

Is there any way to still get the IBEC and IBSS if you didn't already? I don't think so as all methods contacted apple's servers to get the files.
I got mine the old fashioned way when the phone first came out. while doing a restore to 3.0 the files appear for a short time in a temp directory. So, I copied them and have them saved on 2 hard drives, a thumb drive, and on my FTP. but now, you can't do the restore cause it will bump you to 3.1
Also saurik's method relied on apple still signing the 3.0 and 3.0.1, now thats they are not, he can't offer what he was offering to new people. He posted on twitter about it. Glad I got it while it was up!
Geohot also posted on twitter that anyone who previously got their purplera1n ECID file and lost it can get it again as it may have a local copy stored, but if you didn't get it then your out of luck.

Yesterday my iPhone died/jammed/became unrecognized and I was forced to restore. Guess what??? It was either get 3.1, or have a brick in my pocket. I spent 3 hours trying to downgrade by using different iTunes versions, disconnecting internet, cursing Steve Jobs, etc, and in the end Apple won this time. I am pissed off, Apple really needs to stop imposing their will on people. It's not like I got my iPhone for free. Now just hoping for the jailbreak for 3.1.
PS- I have Iphone 3GS

That's fine...AT&T needs to get on it.....paying $30 or whatever it is for an internet package is ridiculous anyways for a phone, so if anyone is going to pay that kind of money for internet on a phone that they're not even supposed to tether..they better AT LEAST make it quick.

LOL I knew this would happen! Most everybody has had PLENTY of time to secure the IBSS and IBEC signatures but they sit on their @55 and do nothing. Now that it's the last minute they all want to jump up and ask what it is and how they can get to it.160GB iPod Classic

I didn't think any of these methods would still work, but if they do, thats great.

Seems like a lot of people are (blindly) counting on Saurik to jailbreak... I guess he at least has a vested interest now that he's making some money off Cydia. Here's hoping it stays worth the trouble for him...

since nobody has answer it yet. Why do I need the EICD, IBEC & IBSS files? I have a 3.0 32g 3gs jailbroken and unlocked on t-mobile. I never need those files for anything. I used redsnow and cydia to unlock? Please someone tell me why I need these files. I am new to the 3gs and use to the 2g.

You'd have to install 3.1, which there is no unlock for, and your phone would then be re-locked to AT&T.

Because to beable to downgrade you firmware for 3.1 you have to have in secure

"Additionally if you do not have your IBSS and IBEC signatures and you restore, you may never be able to jailbreak again."
So wait, if we didn't do this or do that thing in Cydia, it's guaranteed that we will never be able to jailbreak again? So that also means from now on, any iPhone sold from now on can't be jailbroken?
