I have a 3GS, perviously unlocked on 3.0. I tried using the new pwnage tool to upgrade to 3.1, but now I can't get any cell signal. I know the new pwnage doesn't unlock for you, but it won't break a previous unlock, will it?

You are unable to get your iBSS and ECID with the old method of copying from the itunes temp folder anymore. (as far as im aware, but i could be wrong)
Once installing Cydia you may be able to still put your hashes(ECID iBSS) on their.
Hope this answers all your questions.

I've tried redsnow'ing back to 3.0, and it hung up two times at "downloading jailbreak". I've Pwnage tool'ed two or three times and each gets me to the carrier-less, bar-less state.
Anyone got any ideas, success stories?

same here, here's how to fix it:
create another customized ipsw, make sure you DO NOT have "General Settings" -> "Activate the phone" checked if you are a ATT user

Big Warning - I restored to custom 3.1 via pwnagetool and it was all good....until I installed winterboard.
It sent my phone into a boot-loop......I'm currently biting the bullet because I've been working on my phone for 2 hours now with no success and I'm upgrading to 3.1 (apple signed). I cannot restore to custom 3.1 because I get error 1600....regardless of DFU or recovery mode. I'm FAR from an iphone jailbreaking newb and can tell you that either this pwnagetool wasn't ready or winterboard needs to be updated.
Learn from my mistakes - DO NOT INSTALL WINTERBOARD RIGHT NOW.....it jacked up my phone bad

Resolved my no signal issue by re-unlocking with ultrasnow. Everything minus carrier name) is working fine now. Thanks devs!

SGT so what did you do I had a similar problem am I screwed for the time being?
10-02-2009, 06:48 PM #52
I went through the guide and have run into a snag...
When I put the iPhone into Recovery Mode all I get is a blank screen. iTunes sees that the phone is in recovery mode and prompts me to restore. I try to restore and end up with "The iPhone "iPhone" could not be restored. An unknown error occurred (1600)."
Any ideas? Phone isn't responding to anything...

After you have created the custom ipsw, copy it to your Windows Computer and try restore it on there. I got that error when connected into my apple, but no my windows.

IPHONEKID - If you have itunes host file pointed to Saurik's server and have a ECID on file.....you can restore to 3.0 or 3.0.1, then jailbreak it from there.
I was pi$$ed off so I just upgraded to 3.1 (apple signed) because I didn't just sacrifice my Friday night for nothing. I might attempt to downgrade in the future, but until then.....I'm going legit.

When is this coming out for windows??

MODS - can you keep an eye on this winterboard issue and if it keeps occurring....please make a note on the front page not to install winterboard until this is worked out.
I'd hate for everyone to temporarily brick their phone over something that can be avoided. Let's face it 99% of the people who JB install winterboard and if this issue is global.....it's not going to be good.

OK I restored to 3.0 re-jailbroke than put into RECOVERY mode and tried to upgrade using the expert mode and simple and got 1600 both times. I am 10.6 and running itunes 9.1. I have tried any combination of recovery, dfu, simple, and expert. Any other ideas people? the only other thing I can think of is installing itunes 8 which I do not wish to do..... At all
10-02-2009, 07:04 PM #58
Try downgrading the usb drivers like we had to do in a pervious JB...... i don't know if it would help, but I'm fresh out of ideas.
