U have a 3GS? U have to make sure u have the old bootrom. Also, know that once you upgrade to 4.0 you won't be able to downgrade anymore
07-23-2010, 08:36 PM #15
yeah its a 3gs and i was able to jailbreak and unlock to 3.0 with the links u send earlier today, thanks.
but i'd like to go to 4.0 now, however redsn0w_win_0.9.5b5-5 keeps saying it doesn't recognize the ios 4.0 for 3GS any ideas?

No, you don't do it like that. You have to update through official iTunes update. But I warn you, you HAVE to check to see if you have the old bootrom, otherwise you will NOT be able to jailbreak 4.0 and will not be able to use your phoneIf I helped you out, please use the Thanks button ------------------------->

I think you screwed yourself to be perfectly honest. If youre already on 4.0 youre screwed, if not, dont use Redsn0w
If youre on 4.0 you need your SHSH blobs to downgrade to 3.1.x and jailbreak it with Sn0wbreeze or Blackra1n (3.1.2 only) then use Sn0wbreeze or Pwnage to upgrade to a pwn'd 4.0.
If you are still on your 3.0 fw, do what adp said then use sn0wbreeze to create a custom 4.0 fw to shift+restore to upgrade and jailbreak with.
