That's why you can restore to any version. It's only the £GS (and later iPod Touch) that has the updated security which means FW has to be signed. It does not affect the 2G or 3G phones.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

I know I was misinformed when i blindly clicked "upgrade" with my new JB iphone 3gs. All I knew,was that the wifi wouldn't work,so what was the point of ********** when it takes an hour to download an app. So all i wanted to do was restore my phone to stock,wasn't that bothered about the JB. Only after doing this,do I find my 3gs was originally on Orange. I have an o2 contract. I cannot believe the top people , dev team and geohot have just stuck their fingers up at people like me,when every upgrade before,they have worked so hard and fast,with fantastic results. Why do they feel the need to punish people this time round,by not even bothering to try to help ? Just to claify,I bought my 3gs sunday night,worked all day monday,sat down and didn't like the wifi problem,thats all,i didnt kill anybody !!

After all the Dev Team and Geo have done to help you and with all the warnings you still upgraded? Why did you stick their fingers up at them like that?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

is it that easy. i have custom firmwares and it is time to do a restore cause the phone is running slow again(3g).
i want to stay with 3.1.2 and my older base band(i don't unlock but if i ever had to sell i would sell it unlocked)
i am afraid to do a custom restore and have itunes force update to the new 3.1.3.
i have been searching for an answer here for a good 2 hours but i read mostly about 3gs and oops i updated by mistake
can any body confirm that it is safe for me to do a shift/restore and 3.1.2 for iphone 3g

My Fiance' updated her jailbroken, locked and tethered 3G. From what I'm reading, it's pretty simple to jailbreak 3.1.3 and reinstall on the 3G correct? I do not need to unlock, but she would like a few of the jailbroken apps, and I like tethering the phone as a backup internet device. Is there anything special I need to do to regain tethering?

Guys, I just started working with Pwnage tool and I'm trying to make a custom ipsw with blacksn0w included, but when I add the repo and refresh, it doesn't show the program.
Anybody know how to do it?

I'm really not sure what you are trying to do? What FW are you on? What FW are you trying to go to? Why do you think the Dev Team's s/ware support Geo's s/ware?

iPhone 3G 8GB on 3.1.2. Not trying to change firmware. 3.1.2 is the one to be on right now as I am unlocked. I restore other phones once in a while and I'm just trying to add a repo and an application to a custom ipsw. It just happens to be Geo's.
When I run pwnage and try to add the repo, it doesn't pull the application I want to install. (It just happens to be blacksn0w).
Fo instance, there are a few repos added by default and I'm able to install in my custom ipsw SBsettings without a problem. But haven't been able to add any other repos and applications successfully.

I'm trying to read through all the postings and I'm not sure my situation has been covered. So...
I had a jailbreak app crash which dropped me into Safe Mode. When I restarted my 3GS got stuck on the jailbreak pineapple. Anyway, I had to do an Apple 3.1.2 restore. (Did you know iTunes deletes all old/modified ipsw files?) Now I'm trying to get a 3.1.2 jailbreak with PwnageTool 3.1.5 but the build fails almost at the end.
Anybody know why? Any help would be appreciated. I just want a jailbreak. If I can't get a custom ipsw, the only jailbreak left is the tethered blackra1n, correct?
