    People with the skills are suppose to be/hopefully working on tools that will use these files along with a local ispw to trick the restore process into thinking that apple has said 'Ok' and thus allowing you to restore 3.0 or 3.0.1 again.

    Can anyone tell me if I'm totally SOL? I have the ECID file from purplera1n. But I'm assuming that is ONLY the ECID. Do I even need that? Everyone is talking about IBEC & IBSS. Do I have any hope of getting those through the geohot solution I did in the past?

    ill just go on record as saying that no matter how annoying safe mode crashes are when they happen, i am extremely grateful to have it rather than forced restore, at this time

    Why are some people saying that iTunes 9 is causing a brick problem? I downloaded iTunes 9 last night... running iPhone3G[S] with 3.0 and sync'd just fine?

    Did anyone else run into issues?

    can anyone who has used the garbber program listed from page 3 chime in. Is it safe to use? we put the phone in restore and run it? It will not mess anything up?

    I captured the iBSS and iBEC previously a different way. I just want to confirm that these are in fact the files that I need. Here are the exact file names:

    iBEC.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu
    iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu

    Thanks.

    Ok please answer!!!! As of today at 3:04 EST is it possible to get the files with the grabber utilities? Will it force a 3.1 install? will you able to stop the restore so it doesn't restore your phone?

    check the date; if the create date is not the date you created these files, they are no good. i remember during the process itune put 2 files with the same name under the temp, but with June date.

    Okay so forgive my newbie ignorance, but how would one restore back to 3.0 on a 3G iPhone then? (I went to 3.1 last night without doing my homework) Perhaps a link? or instructions? Or am I fine with the 3.1 and it will be jailbroken soon? Please help the new kid!

    does that method still work??
    I ask because those comments area from last month.

    And also if youre on a 3.0.1 3GS jailbroken/unlocked, can it still be jailbroken and unlocked?

    so let me get this straight, if you haven't captured the iBSS and iBEC signatures as of yet, you can't do it now since you're not able to restore to 3.0 anymore? damn... why wasn't this publicized more let's say like a month or two ago?

    this was announced a lot by geohot and the dev-team. both said this from 3.0 jailbreak! it was on here and twitter like crazy! but on the good note if you loaded cydia and saurik has your ecid on shsh then you should be fine! he has them on a server for every iphone that accepted! but they both warned people like crazy!
