    After messing around with this for over an hour, I was finally able to successfully install the custom 4.0 firmware. Here's what I did:

    Iphone 3GS 3.3.1 (Old Bootrom) Legit activation

    I downgraded to 3.2.1 Firmware using DFU mode and when I got a 1604 error in iTunes, I used Blackra1n to jailbreak it. I then put the phone into DFU mode and restored using the customized 4.0 firmware. It received a 1600 error, so I put the phone into recovery mode (with the connect to iTunes logo) and tried again. The firmware installed with no errors and was jailbroken. Hope this helps!

    I never jailbroke my phone but I'll try it. The "Preparing Iphone for restore" took like 10 mins to be done then it gave me error 1604. Ima try again and see what happens

    is it just my impatience but does it seem to always hang at the very end? I have old bootloader, 3Gs, and tried 4.0 custom, 3.1.2 custom and it stops at the very end. I have my shsh on Cydia but it stops always at the same spot. Going to see if I let it run for an hour but if not then I will have to do a regular restore and hope geohot's jailbreak and unlock can work....

    Originally I used Spirit to jailbreak to 3.3.1 and when I tried restoring using the custom 4.0 firmware, it wouldn't take. I figured the Spirit jailbreak had something to do with it, so I downgraded to 3.2.1 firmware and used BlackRa1n to jailbreak it.

    A small issue I just ran into: I opened Cydia for the first time after installing custom 4.0 and it wouldn't load (was just a black screen). I turned the phone off, then on and it loaded fine.

    So my question is.. I got 3GS, updated last nite to 4.0.. I got the phone 1st day it came out, checked with f0recast, it's the old bootrom according to everything I've read.. I'm on Windows, would anyone on a MAC be able to create a custom IPSW and upload it somewhere so us 3GS users with old bootrom could restore it from iTunes? Is that even possible.. it seems it is since the instructions says that if you're on the old bootrom with 3GS all you need to do is restore via iTunes with the custom one.. Thx in advance!

    Tried your process. When Blackra1n completed, it says to wait for the reboot.

    Am looking at a black screen and have been for about 3-4 minutes.

    Am I suppose to wait for the phone to reboot, or proceed to DFU mode?

    Where is he customized 4.0 firmware you speak of?

    Thank you.

    I had a similar problem. If you have purchased wi-fi sync, uninstall it from your computer. It was causing hanging at the very end of os installations.

    No, its the same build number so its identical to the public release. Don't waste your time.
