    Man....i really wish i saw that request within Cydia. Why was it on for such a short period of time!!! I never backed up my ibss and ibec files which was my own fault. I just never thought Apple would chooose to never allow a downgrade. I was under the impression those files were for future unlock of upgraded firmwares. boy was i wrong...well partially.

    So for those of us who were careless... there is no way to upgrade to jailbreak/unlock in the future without those files? Ever? Ever ever?

    I need my unlock to work so i can use international SIM cards when going to canada. :/

    I'm not trilled by the solution of taking one server we are dedicated to and replacing it with another. A better solution would be to edit the hosts files to reference a local file on the machine rather than an obscure server. If there is an issue with apple interfering or just server issues we can use neither server. I can always use my computer though....... so a local hosts hack to redirect to a file I already have would be the best solution to this. I don't know how it would affect Saurik however, he may be depending on the web traffic.

    Goddamn that will teach me to read the stuff in Cydia... I guess I'll have to wait for the 3.1 jailbreak which I hope is soon.

    it was on there for such a short time because they had to get it before 3.1 was released. What I feel would have been a great idea would have been to make it some kinda news thing like on the first page. It's how I found this thread. Oh well though. I am sure the dev team will whip out something for us people who didnt get the files needed.

    If you downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0 will it replace all of the features that came with 3.1?

    Question iBSS Question.
    Hi all. Im on 3.0.1 Jailbroken 3Gs iPhone (Thanks to DEV Team and Saurik), also i have iBSS, iBEC and purplera1n files on my PC, but I have missed that Cydia ECID SHSH thing. Also I did that "Redirection of Signature Request" (Thanks to Saurik [again]).
    My questions are:
    1. Am I safe in future jailbreaking?
    2. May I restore my iPhone if I've got any problem with it?

    When 3.1 is jailbroken you'll be able to jailbreak that. By having Saurik's server be the middle man during that initial 3.1 signature you'll register with his server and have your 3.1 ECID info saved, thus enabling you to get back to 3.1 after the next fw release when apple stops signing 3.1

    You won't be able to get back to 3.0 or 3.0.1 via Saurik though if you don't have it saved via Cydia. So right now, if you do a restore, your going to be forced to go to 3.1. If someone makes the tools to use the IBEC and IBSS or purplera1n files, then perhaps you can get to 3.0/3.0.1

    For right now, stay on 3.0.1 till the 3.1 JB appears.

    How can you get those files from purplera1n or can you?

    You are not safe to restore until they make some software for the iBSS & iBEC numbers you got off your phone. I'm in the same situation. I pulled the numbers a month ago or so. I didn't see the Cydia option either (I was on vacation last week). As of right now I have a 3GS 3.0.1 JB w/redsnow. If I tried to restore to 3.0.1 apple will not sign off on the firmware and ask you to upgrade to 3.1. So I suggest you hold off on installing any apps that could crash your your iPhone and make you restore until the 3.1 exploit is released.

    Thanks Saurik! I've donated to you for everything you've done.

    I finally got this to work, and I'm so happy! I had to not only restart my computer, but go to Start-Run-CMD then type ipconfig /flushdns. After that iTunes still told me I couldn't use said firmware, so I disabled, then re-enabled my wireless card. That did it for me, and now I have all my themes and great 3.0-ness intact!

    That has nothing to do with this thread. DON'T spread false info. Pwn tool is NOT out for the 3GS which is this entire thread.


    NB: THIS DOES NOT SUPPORT THE 3GS OR NEW IPOD TOUCH. redsn0w for Mac OS X and Windows will follow sometime in the near future, please don’t bug us about it - we’ll release when we have something ready.
    not much NEW news really.......
