    Default Help Crashed 3gs..
    Well this is my first post..

I have been trying to restore to 3.0 or 3.0.1 but im coming to find out that i cant .. i did not get my 3gs "hashed" .. any suggetions?

    would my only option be to upgrade to 3.1?

    Ello!

    You appear to not have your ECID on file then. Try these steps, they might just do it:

    1. ok first, put the phone in dfu then hold the home+ power button till the apple logo pops up. Anything? (give it a while, like 5-10mins a try)

    2. turn off he phone (hold home + power button till the screen goes black then start it up (again (give it a while, like 5-10mins a try)

    3. turn of the phone (home+sleep till screen is black) then hold the home button and plug it in. you should get a 'connect to itunes' pic. restart it (home+power till apple logo shows, again give it a while, like 5-10mins a try.

    4. OK this is the 3rd to last step, just turn off the phone (you should know how to by now) then turn it on (plug it in at this point). leave it alone for 20 mins, see if it boots.

    5. do this again: turn of the phone (home+sleep till screen is black) then hold the home button and plug it in. you should get a 'connect to itunes' pic. Then, go to this link:

    http://www.mediafire.com/file/3zzmt5znnkm/QuickPwn.zip

    download quickpwn, extract it using winrar, run it and do as it EXACTLY AS IT SAYS (but do not click on the blue arrow if your phone actually reboots, you should only click the two boxes that say "OK", then wait and see if your phone reboots normally. if it does then close quickpwn.

    6. Leave it be and use another phone till dev-team gets a new JB or DFU restore to 3.1.

    NOTE: i say wait after doing each step because springboard may just fail to load, and it will keep trying to load (experienced your problem before). It will try to keep booting to normal (or safe mode). so yeah after each step let it be 5-15 mins, no longer then 15.

    tell me how it goes,

    i have been for hours lol.. i think ive put the phone into dfu mode + recovery mode more than 10 times.. and i have let it sit hoping it would boot but it just keeps cycling trying to boot up.. tried irecovery.. nothing seeming to work..

    so you suggest i not upgrade to 3.1 through apple? irritates me soo much that just cuz i wanted to uninstall an app that itll cause so much trouble..
