    i never read it on here is what i mean, didn't know i should be reading other forums as well, i guess that's what i get for not reading other forums, saurik does have my ecid shsh on file which is a good thing i caught that when it came out, cause he can't do it anymore. you just shed some light on the subject for me. hopefully with that one single file, i'll be alright. i love my 3gs, especially jailbroken.

    and what i meant by publicized on modmyi, cause this is the only source of info i really read

    it is what i get for not doing my homework i guess

    i think this is the beginning of the end for the jailbreaking community.. like BigBoss said a while back when the iPhone 3gs were on verge of being unlocked by the devteam and geohot.. he said that this 5hit is gonna get harder.. and soon damn right impossible to hack.. and that even now how both the iphone3g and 3gs were kind of a matter of luck being that exploit.. was not suppose to be there..

    so i dunno.. i don't think i can used the worlds greatest device(speaking in potential) without it being jailbroken.. i think sooner than later i might just hang up the gloves on this bad boy.. cuzz if its getting this ugly now with apple.. its only gonna get worse !! Peace!!

    Is there an "official" procedure for downgrading 3.1 to 3.0.1. on the 3g?

    I really hope you are wrong.... but if not, im sure I can sell my 32GB 3GS for enough to get an unlocked HTC Hero
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    ^I disagree because all this does not affect the original iphone. Sure, I need the unlock jailbreak 3.1 to use my phone on tmobile. The 3GS is a new iphone in many ways. The only thing I can say is the dollar value for an unlocked iphone will definitely go up in value. I would invest in buying a few of them. Especially if unlock is getting hard to do.

    Dude i hope i am too... but the thing is.. what i have noticed that sure in the beginning apple was pissed about jailbreaks, but not to this point.. but what i really think pushed them over the top in stopping this process.. was the fact that the App Store can be effected in $$.. see its all about the Benjamins.. and once things like installoussss and crackulousss came out with a the potential of jeopardizing the money flow( *note im not saying it is right now, 5hit apple is still making a lot of money, and amount of users using cracked apps is still fairly low) but just that the opportunity is their.. that's when i think apple has made it a *priority* to end jailbreaking (once loosing money was involved)..

    You can't do that anymore. Apple saw to that this week.

    EDIT: My bad! My info was for 3GS owners only!

    Read post #88........ I have no inside scoop, but I am sure apple doesn't want us to jailbreak these and will try harder on each new model to ensure it cannot be done (at some point). Hence, I keep my old 3G (not the S version).

    So again, read on. Oh, and don't you "fail" to understand where they are going with this.

    No not that i know of. Supposedly he is working with the dev team so that there new tool will connect to his sever and retrieve your iphone 3gs's specific ecid from his sever when you jailbreak!

    Don't get the issue (with the IBSS and IBEC files and Apple server chacking) mixed up between the 2G, 3G, and 3GS. All this ONLY affects the 3GS. The 3G and 2G can still be restored to 3.0 (or 3.01), if that is where you are now. You can shift-restore as always.

    The issue is the 3GS cannot be restored to 3.0 (or 3.01) PERIOD. Even if you are there now. Shift restore will check with Apple and will fail.

    NOTE however that in NO case can you fully restore to 3.0 (or 3.01) if you have already upgraded to 3.1. The baseband is upgraded in 3.1 and cannot be downgraded to anything lower, thus rendering Ultrasn0w moot.

    Bottomline: for 2G/3G, if you are on 3.0 or 3.01, stay there, and you can keep shift-restoring to 3.0 or 3.01.

    For 3GS, you cannot shift-restore 3.0 or 3.01 unless you have your IBEC/IBSS files and someone comes up with a way to fool iTunes to use an alternate checking authority other than Apple.
