    That said, Apple is shotting themselves in the foot, by doing this. Their 3G s is the most expensive model; and this is how they treat the customers, who ought to be valued more.

    You have been here 2 years, you can read the link that says "downgrade help forum" in the OP. Use it.

    love it, the article is a great read if you care anything about jailbreaking a 3gs phone or any phone of that matter, its good to know what's going on. i just hope a lot of people read the article and just don't want to come on a forum and have it spoon fed to them.

    When I edit the host file, it saves as a new .txt file. Is that ok? Also, when I try so save it initially, is gives me an error stating: "Cannot create C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts file. Make sure that the path and file name are correct." WTH?

    Thanks Ziggie but I'll have to do it tomorrow as my comp is already shut down and packed up. Why didn't Jays instructions include all these damn steps? Is my computer special or something?! sigh. What should the permissions and ownerships be set to for when I get around to it though? Thanks.

    I feel really bad for all you guys that got a 3GS and now cannot jailbreak. That's the nerd equivalent of being locked in a dark box while the other children play outside in the fresh breeze and sunshine.

    I had a hard time remember what my device looked like before it was jailbroken. I think the Earth was on the lockscreen.

    to the Dev-Team and Saurik...

    i am still a "baby" to the iPhone... Only owning mine since May... I must say that in the iPhone's relatively short life, it is absolutely amazing the differences between my previous brand of choice (blackberry)...

    in the blackberry world, we thought it was "cool" to be able to load a different carrier's version of whatever OS was out, and we would go crazy over the most miniscule "new" features...

    the things that the Dev-Team and Saurik have done on the iPhone are ridiculous compared to the blackberry world...

    Gentlemen, thank you all very much for all you do for the community!!!

    Man I so excited. I have been delving into forums on how to do this. I will see if I can try to write a simple article on how to perform the process once someone explains where to find signed ECID files

    The profit they make is irrelevant, it's their attitude that is the problem. There's no virtue in losing money.

    Let's be realistic. The vast majority of iPhone customers don't know a thing about jailbreaking and could care less about this. To us (the small minority) it's important, to everyone else it's 'meh'. So, Apple isn't 'shotting' or shooting themselves anywhere.

    It's hyperbole like this that give this community a bad name and makes us look like nuts. Given the millions of iPhones out there the ones that are jailbroken are a very small minority and even people who jailbreak buy apps at the app store. So, how is Apple losing money to jailbroken iPhones? They are not losing sales of apps since we are installing apps that, for the most part, are not available in the App Store.

    Of the total iPhones sold, how many are jailbroken? Of those, how many are unlocked? ATT might be losing money on unlocked phones, but not Apple.

    well i think its been stated that 10% of the iphones may be jailbroken, and since the key to the unlock is through the JB it only makes sense to close the big hole. ive always felt that if JB alone were the issue, then apple wouldnt be so hardcore about preventing it, but since there is an unlock that potentially costs AT&T money, well then that will be addressed. its only natural that you attack the JB, since the BB upgrade takes care of the unlock for most people forever.

    also, apple, like most software manufacturers, hates it when people deconstruct their software and make it better (mobile substrate additions, backgrounder, maps enhancers, youtuber, themes, etc) especially when it involves the core applications. they wont let people put in apps that do more than layer the functionality (i.e. camera zoom doesnt actually use the camera app, it opens its own app, terribly incovenient)

    cydia apps are great because they invest the new functions within the old app but apple sure hates that for some reason. just my thoughts, but that is a legitimate reason to attack the JB that isnt necessarily $$$-driven
