Thread: jailbreak freezes on restart
04-16-2010, 11:59 AM #1jailbreak freezes on restart
I just get a blank black screen everytime when it says waiting for reboot.
My phone is 3g 3.1.3 bb 5.12.01. Trying to jailbreak to see if I have the older bootloader.
any help on getting away from blank screen?

Use redsn0w 0.9.4 and when asked for the firmware choose 3.1.2. If this fails just DFU restore back to 3.1.2 then use redsn0w to jailbreak that.

I used redsn0w 9.4 and linked it with 3.1.2 but that leads to the black screen.
I tried to use shift+restore to load 3.1.2 back into my iphone but it says iphone cannot read or something.
Is doing DFU restore different from shift+restoring through itunes?
thanks for your reply
nevermind I found the link. I guess you mean this:
