FIRST, DOING THIS IS ONLY REQUIRED FOR 3GS OWNERS, ALL OTHER IPHONES ARE SAFE AGAINST THIS BY DESIGN, IT'S A NEW SECURITY MEASURE FROM APPLE
3Gs on firmware 3.0 or 3.0.1
iPhone 3GS 3.0 firmware ipsw file
all you do now, is jailbreak the phone using redsn0w 0.8, and point redsn0w to the v3.0 file you've downloaded when it asks
after the jaiblreak, run cydia on your phone, install all the essential updates, cydia will close, start it again, and it will ask you if it can put your phone data on file for later use
once you've done this, and cydia displays "phone data on file" at the top, you are sorted
this will enable you to always be able to downgrade to 3.0 software if you've updated accidentally, however, it doesn't allow you to downgrade the basedband, so, you won't be able to network unlock the phone unless an updated unlock is created
if you now need to downgrade your firmware, follow the tutorial on Saurik's website: Downgrade Tutorial
09-15-2009, 04:10 AM #188
Why have you linked to redsn0w on an untrusted site when it can be downloaded from this site?
for full details of what to do with a 3GS see Dev-Team Blog - Future-proofing the 3GS jailbreakHe who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.
09-15-2009, 04:16 AM #189
second, it's the exact same link the dev team themselves use on their blog page, if they trust it, I do
get over yourself
09-15-2009, 04:27 AM #190
Where did you find the links to the RedSn0w downloads?
I didn't recognise the site!
Just checked it out LOL
I missed that one.
Just found the updated links to the FW on the Blog - I didn't realise they'd changed them. I wish they'd let me know when they change the links to stop me making a fool of myself

The information in this post considers the iPhone 3G[S] only!
To keep things as simple as possible I will simply call the ECID SHSH blobs 'certificates' in the following.
Thanks to theron.roland for collecting all the information, really appreciative. It's just missing one important fact:
Apple stopped (as of 09/09/09 = release of 3.1) signing 3.0 and 3.0.1 .ipsw files!
So no matter what you do, you can't get these 'certificates' anymore. In short, the method described by theron.roland won't get you your files, the window has been closed.
For clarification some scenarios:
You're still on 3.0 or 3.0.1 and used Cydia before 09/09/09 to store your certificates on saurik's server.
You are one of the lucky few!
#1a - factory unlocked
If you own a factory unlocked device and don't rely on any soft unlock to use your phone with the carrier of your choice, you could update to official 3.1. You would lose your jailbreak though!
To get back your jailbreak you are able to follow saurik's downgrade instructions, which in turn defeats the purpose of upgrading to 3.1 in the beginning, if you downgrade to 3.0/3.0.1 to get your jailbreak back. But it helps if you upgraded 'accidentally'.
So if you want the jailbreak on 3.1 wait for PwnageTool 3.1 :-)
#1b - carrier locked
As of now the new baseband (05.11.07) can't be soft unlocked, and won't be in the foreseeable future.
So if you are relying on a soft unlock to use your phone with the carrier of your choice don't (!) update to official 3.1.
Saurik's downgrade method, nor any other downgrade method, doesn't downgrade the baseband!!!
You're still on 3.0 or 3.0.1 and you used purplera1n.com or the 'capture-tmp-file' method to get your certificates.
Well, you definitely got the right files. There's just no tool out there that can use your locally stored certificates to make you able to downgrade!
You should keep the files nevertheless. There's hope that there will be a tool out there, maybe integrated in PwnageTool, which is able to use locally stored certificates.
So you should not upgrade to 3.1 if you really need the jailbreak cause you won't be able to downgrade. As of now, for downgrading you need the certificates stored on saurik's server.
You're still on 3.0 or 3.0.1 with no certificates at all anywhere.
Saurik's downgrade method wouldn't work for you and there's no way to get the certificates after 09/09/09. So you should stay on 3.0/3.0.1 if you care about a jailbreak and wait for PwnageTool 3.1.
You're already on 3.1.
To keep it short: No soft unlock (if you need it) as of now and if possible it will take a while to see the light of day.
For jailbreaking: Wait for PwnageTool 3.1.
Downgrading: As of now ONLY if you have obtained certificates 'on file' before 09/09/09 through Cydia for 3.0 or 3.0.1.
Hmm, I hope I didn't forget anything. Let me know if I did :-)

i don't want to give too much detail because it might convince the noobs (of which there are plenty) to jump the gun, but, even though saurik won't retrieve the signed files from apple, he does retrieve what you need from the phone, which is and will be enough

If Cydia has not already got your files it can not get signed 3.0 files now!
As from tonight Saurik will be collecting files for 3.1 but if you didn't let cydia collect your files before 3.1 was released you are to late.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

What about the loss of teathering?
09-15-2009, 08:04 AM #197
i don't know if there is any carrier officially supported by Apple out there that allows tethering with stock 3.1.
anyways, AT&T will supposedly support tethering starting 09/25/09.
i've been using a custom carrier bundle to enable MMS and tethering.
there are some reports that you can still upload custom .ipcc files to 3.1 (even using iTunes 9), but tethering simply won't work.
once 3.1 is officially jailbroken people over here are going to investigate.
off topic: i don't know if it's allowed to post links to other forums here? mods, please edit if not.
