im working on jailbreaking my old bootrom 3GS. i've tried sn0wbreeze and decided i throughly hate it. i would like to know if its possible to JB my phone with redsn0w.
im a really big noob at this, so please give explicit directions. If i must use sn0wbreeze, please give explicit directions with that.
I have access to windows XP, vista, and 7. 32 and 64 bit versions of all three, and im reasonably computer literate, just new to the jailbreaking scene.
Thanks for your help!!!!!!

Brendon is correct, a 3GS on 3.1.3 can't be jailbroken, no matter the bootrom.

I stand corrected. It is apparently possible to go from a "vanilla" 3.0, 3.0.1, 3.1, or 3.1.2 to a custom 3.1.3 on an old bootrom 3G[S] according to iClarified iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool [Mac] . But it is still not possible to jailbreak stock 3.1.3 once it's loaded on the phone. You're only hope at that point is that you have an ECID SHSH saved somewhere for a lower OS version so you can downgrade & jailbreak.

OK, so you guys have talked about pre jb phones or vanilla phones but I've got a question for you. My previously jb phone forced me to restore to the new firmware (after dodging it like the plague since it's release) after being stuck in a reboot loop. I've restored after exhausting everything else I could think of but obviously lost the jb from before and am stuck with an "unbreakable" OS. Is it accurate to say that there is no option to crack this OS in my situation? I'm ready to go with redsn0w and the 3.1.2 firmware but from the comments this doesn't look terribly promising. Since I couldn't get into the system at all the Cydia hash won't work either. Ideas??

I have a question.
I have an iPhone 3G, which I have jailbroken and successfully unlocked some time ago. It is running firmware 3.1.2
I now have an iPhone 3GS, which I have successfully jailbroken using Spirit. That iPhone 3GS is running firmware 3.1.3, baseband 05.12.01 and the OLD Bootrom (iBoot) 359.3.
The 3GS was not jailbroken at any stage prior to being upgraded to 3.1.3. Now, here's my question:
If an iPhone 3GS running 3.1.3 can be unlocked if PREVIOUSLY jailbroken can I use the SHSH backup from my iPhone 3G to unlock it (the 3GS)?
I hope I've made it clear here what I mean.
Many thanks for any words of advice. :-)

Well now the IS a pity.
Thanks for the quick answer anyway yeow202.
I don't suppose the SHSH file of another, similarly-configured, handset would be any good?
While I have jailbroken a couple of iPhone 3G before I've no idea about SHSH files.
05-25-2010, 04:49 AM #12
The SHSH files are device specific so unfortunately you can't use anyone else's.

Damn. Thanks for your reply.
It would appear I'm stuck so.
