olivo42 try iclarified but i cant post links
Also I SOLVED ERROR 1600...
wow im on a roll today
After using snowbreeze to make your custom 4.0 ispw then go to itunes, DO NOT PUT IPHONE IN DFU or RECOVERY MODE. just put your phone in the main page window (the one with lets say the settings icon and winterboard ect...) and go to Itunes and SHIFT+Restore and click the custom ispw 4.0 and VOILA.
NOTE : only works if you have jailbroken 3gs 3.1.2 blackra1n

Well I jailbroke my iphone 3gs with spirit so I'm trying to restore it back to 3.1.3(I bought it with 3.1.3 installed so no 3.1.2 for me) and I'm just wondering a few things. I clicked the make my life easier button and it's pending the tss request(I'm assuming that means I can't restore it yet so I'm not) any clue as to how long this will take? Will restoring to 3.1.3 the way you described(backing up via cydia then restoring) keep all my cydia apps, themes, etc.? Or just delete them all?
In case anyone is wondering why I can't just click the restore button it's because iTunes makes me restore and update instead of just restore and I can't update because I jb with spirit.... I'm starting to get really annoyed with spirit btw..

Okay guys, I have a question. And no I'm not stupid so don't go bashing me. I just got my iPhone traded out because I took it in after I updated to iOS4 because I lost data service. They gave me a brand new iPhone 3G[S], that is still model MB and serial before 40s. If I updated it to iOS4 as well am I SOL? Or do I have any options?

I only have Blob SHSH for 4.0 on Cydia.. Am I screwed? I tried every possible way already.. I guess I have to wait.. sigh

If I have a 3GS that has the new bootrom then I am stuck at 3.1.3 correct? I'm not saying that is a bad thing because a lot of cydia apps I use are not fully compatible with 4.0 yet. On my 3GS with the older bootrom I downgraded that from 4.0 to 3.1.2 just because some of the apps I use the most didn't work. I'm 99% sure that if I have a 3GS with the new bootrom it's best to stay on 3.1.3 for now correct?

soo i have the 3gs which i bought off CL on ios4. I tried this method, i get the 3194 error when its verifying with apple. How can i stop it from verifying with apple? i did not do any shsh blob thing so is there a way this still works?
06-25-2010, 12:44 AM #115
I have a question. I am trying to find out if I have the new or old bootrom. I tried doing the thing where you plug in your phone while in DFU mode and using System Profiler (Mac) to find what my iBoot number was, but there wasn't anything there except for my serial number and a few other things. Any ideas?

unknown error occurred(1015) i followed all instructions. i need my old jailbreak back. whats the problem???
06-25-2010, 02:33 AM #118
I am also getting an error 1015, I got my 3GS when it first came out.
Its been jail broken since 3.0. I did have it 3.1.2 w blackra1n.
It goes to the restore process and it stops at about 75% and gives the 1015 error.
Anyone know how to get around this?

Just tried iphone 3GS 05.11 I updated to iOS4 by accident and with this method was able to downgrade back to 3.1.2... Just make sure you have the latest iTunes that's where I was having a problem.

FOR THOSE WITH error (3194) READ!!!
if you are 100% sure that you have your SHSH blobs saved, and have edited your host file, and are still getting error (3194) try this out...
i was getting that same error over and over again. i went into my c:/windows/system32/drivers/ect folder and cut everything out and pasted it in a new folder on my desktop. leaving only my hosts file in the 'ect' folder. i realized one of my host files was a 'text' file, the other just said 'file'. i only kept the one that was a file. right-clicked, opened with notepad, added my "126.96.36.199 gs.apple.com " saved it. and viola. just for shits and giggles, i put the other files back in my 'ect' folder, and got the error (3194) again. i was going nuts with this. hope i helped somebody out at least.
