    What happened to me is my iphone 3GS stuck in apple logo using 3.1.2 firmware. I restore it using 3.1.3 custom firmware to avoid updating the baseband. Is there a possible way to unlock it using blacksn0w without any problems?
    i dont need an unlock. im just ready for a restore. my phone been slow. and cydia is messed up. so i was waiting for an update to fix it all. im trying to figure out the best way to update and jailbreak my phone again.

    blacksnow has had alot of problems. i wouldnt use it. blacksnow is makeing alot of the boot loop problems. where you phone boots up and turns off, turns on and off. i know if your in need of an unlock dont. but if your just wanting to upgrade and jailbreak, there as to be away. i do have my shsh just incase. but i have not upgraded at all.

    does anybody else know if this is possible?

    can you use custom fireware to upgrade to 3.1.3 if you havent upgraded yet? this will be on iphone 3gs new boot rom?

    Or do I have to restore my 3.12 to a custom 3.13 which won't upgrade the baseband? (I dnt care for the unlock)

    tips?
    Stay at 3.12!

    thats what i thought. well guess im have to wait.

    for iphone 3gs old boot rom, that use custom fireware i would recomend ultrasnow. blacksnow does not work on 3.1.3 only ultrasnow will. so if your on 3.1.3 with 5.11 use ultrasnow.

    and if your iphone 3gs with new bootrom like me, sit tight. i wouldnt do anything. stay on 3.1.2 untill the next big update/jailbreak.

    my 3.1.2 is in need of a restore, so im just going to restore back to 3.1.2. and jailbreak via redsnow...hee hee

    RedSn0w updates your BB so you can't unlock. It is JB only.

    I certainly would recommend this.

    Great news! But is it really worth upgrading from 3.1.2? I dont want to have to start all over, and the features don't really seem that worthy of upgrading for.

    just to clarify... i have a 3gs (early bootrom) on 3.1.2 on 4.26 baseband. this pwnagetool release will preserve the baseband with a custom firmware so i can unlock with ultrasnow, correct?

    It's one thing when the update brings some new feature, but I was amazed at how many people were like "ZOMG 3.1.3 was just released! I have to update NOWWWWWW! Will I be able to keep all my Cydia apz?" even though it was CLEARLY stated just about everywhere that 3.1.3 added no new features and was primarily designed to force the Dev Team to use another exploit to jailbreak the firmware. Well now the Dev Team has to clean up the mess to appease all the idiots who rushed to update. Come on guys, we've been playing this cat-and-mouse game with Apple for two and a half years running now. I can't believe there are still people who rush to update their jailbroken devices, even when they are explicitly warned not to do so, every time Apple releases a new firmware. Kudos to the Dev Team for refusing use a new exploit on this firmware though.

    I just hope some other hacker doesn't give in to all the whining that is likely to follow this release from 3GS users who are now stuck on 3.1.3 and release a jailbreak using a new exploit. It would be a pity if we can't jailbreak 4.0 as a result!

    Hopefully, those who rushed to upgrade and got stuck will learn something from this experience. Patience is the greatest virtue of any jailbreaker.

    read all warnings didnt update. get iphone this morning and its in recovery mode ??? wtf. ask wife if she touched my phone, yeah she said (btw she has no idea what so friggen ever about phones or computers) yes she updated it ....WHY or friggen WHY did you touch it.

    Nothing to report for the 05.12.01 baseband folks eh? Had one of my kids accidentally updated their 3G phone. Got it to go back to 3.1.2 the day it happened but cannot downgrade the baseband. Looks like I have to retire this phone until 4.0 then correct?

    Yes you right,...wait until unlock for BB 05.12.01 available....

    But don't know 4.0 it's will be with the new baseband again or not.

    I'm still on 3.0.1, 4.26.08 (3G), unlocked, T-Mobile USA, pwn'd w/Pwnage. Never updated to 3.1.2 due to several issues that surfaced last year. IE: network carrier signing, broken tethering, and possibly others. I assume they've been addressed and no longer an issue (I hope).

    Is it time for me to upgrade? ... some apps are requiring 3.1.2.

    Do/could I loose anything by going from 3.0.1 to 3.1.2 (or 3.1.3) ?

    already used sn0wbreeze to do this. but it looks like dev team like always needed a little push for them to release theirs. so in that regards i guess it was good chronic devs released theirs
