I've tried to apply the custom firmware 3.1.2 (downloaded from one of the file servers) to my 3gs (purchased in July) with fw 3.0.1 (non-jailbreak) last night for a couple of hours, but it did not work for me.
I've tried it with the phone in recovery mode, DFU mode, and normal mode, but I got the error 1604 every time.
I've also tried it with the iTunes ver. 8.2 and 9.0.1, but no success.
my computer is a Windows Vista 32-bit.
I'd appreciate if someone could tell me what I'm doing wrong or what I should do to get it right.

You will notice that your carrier name is missing on the iPhone 3GS status bar screen. It is only cosmetic. To fix, install "MakeItMine", run it and enter "AT&T"."When I die, I want to go peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather did...not kicking and screaming like the passengers in his car." -- Unknown

I'm a newbie...please help.
I have a new 3G S bought last weekend and here is the spec from the About page:
Firmware date: 05.11.07
OS: 3.1 (iTunes recommends me to update to 3.1.2)
Part No: MB717LL/A
I wanted to jb and not unlock for now as I'm on a 2 year contract with AT&T. Do I need to use blackra1n or PwnageTool 3.1.4? I don't know the boot rom version.
I read this on the Dev-Team Blog home page and got more confused:
Here are some details on our latest version of PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X which supports the 3.1.2 release of the iPhone software for iPhone 2G/3G/3GS and iPod Touch 1G/2G.
If you’re already jailbroken (by whatever means), you don’t need to mess around with DFU mode at all. Just create (or get from a friend) your custom IPSW and Option-Restore (Shift-Restore on Windows) to it via iTunes. Don’t enter DFU mode at all. Please make sure you are restoring to the custom IPSW, not the stock one from Apple! For best results, use the latest iTunes (9.0.1) — which includes a nice new application organizer.
This release allows your baseband to remain unlocked at 3.1.2, but it does not unlock a new baseband put there by restoring to official 3.1.x. It is super important that people who need the unlock to understand they can keep it only by starting at 3.0 (or earlier) and updating solely to custom IPSWs that don’t update the baseband. For those who have been onboard the “unlock train”, simply install ultrasn0w via Cydia once you’ve restored to your custom IPSW. Don’t forget to turn off the “3G” setting in Settings->General->Network if you use T-Mobile in the U.S.A.
Note for 3GS users not already jailbroken and stuck at 3.1.x: this version of PwnageTool has a side feature to jailbreak your 3GS. It uses a simple implementation of the usb control msg hole found by chronicdev, geohot, and our very own gray. (Update: please make sure iTunes and iTunesHelper are not running when PwnageTool asks you if your 3GS is already jailbroken/pwned). Now that the hole is public and in use, we expect Apple to close it by the next major firmware update. That’s why 3GS users need to get their ECID hashes for 3.1.x now, and need to stay onboard the “jailbreak train” in all future updates. For more details on what this means, please see our earlier posts or ask in our comments section (moderated by the always helpful @angie and @confucious!).
What does this tell me? If i use PwnageTool to unlock my iphone as per my specs I have listed above, can I unlock in the future?
Thanks for all the help.

You need pwnage if you are on 3.0x and want to keep your BB at 04.26.08
As your BB is already at 05.11.07 you can just upgrade to 3.12 and use BlackRa1n BUT
sometime in week 40 the new iBoot was released -if you have a Mac you can have a look to see what version you have. If it's the new one then BlackRa1n is a tethered JB and I'm really not sure if I would do it.
Good luck.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Just update to 3.1.2 through iTunes and then run black rain I have had lots of luck jb ing 3gs's and have done 5 with no problem just follow online directions man. 3g can be tougher and pwange tool has to be used but it can still be done good luck!

If you upgrade to 3.12 in iTunes you can JB but not unlock.
BlackRa1n RC2 has fixed the problems with the 3G and enabled a tethered JB for the new iBoot on the 3GS but pwnage is the only option if you want to unlock.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Is there a Custom 3.1.2 ipsw for ipod touch? If so please post a link or send me it!!!

Hi guys !
I went on this page (Download Custom Firmware 3.1.2 ipsw – Jailbreak, Activate, Unlock iPhone 2G, 3G, 3GS [Mac and Windows] | iLikeMyiPhone) and did not know which file to get, an activated or not activated custom firmware for my iPhone 3G.
Something that may be quite important. The phone is unlocked by the cell phone provider, I mean officially.
Can someone help me choosing the right file for my phone ?
Thanks in advance !

If your phone is officially unlocked just update to 3.12 in iTunes and use BlackRa1n to JB.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Yeah I know... Just being lazy!!!

hey I did a fully working Pwnage Tool JB last night with blacksn0w unlock. I tried resetting my network settings to get MMS working on TMboile and now I'm stuck in a continuous reboot loop. Suggestions? Does this mean I have the newest iBoot that requires a JB upon every restart?
Edit: I can't even get it into reboot mode. When I plug it into iTunes and hold Home the pwnage apple just shows up again. I can't get rid of it!!! Any/all help is appreciated!!

Hi RaginAsian55 - try running BlackRain and seeing if that kicks it.
