    Default I have 3G[S] with FW : 3.0.1 , how to JB? plzzz
    Hi guys

    I have 3GS iPhone with FW version 3.0.1 , i tried the following tutorial iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS on OS 3.0.x Using RedSn0w (Windows) and i got a message : "The iPhone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build." , i tried the version 3.0 and 3.0.1 , and i got the same message .

    Any help on that ? how can i downgrade to 3.0 ?

    Thanks Guys !

    If your phone is working, you don't need to restore it first. You got that message because you are no allowed to restore to anything but 3.1 right now. So don't restore. Also, I would recommend researching the whole situation before actually doing anything to your phone.

    seeing as you joined this month, i assume you have no info stored on cydia so you can NEVER go back to 3.0 or 3.0.1

    3.1 is your only option now.

    use Pwnage Tool 3.1.3 if you have a Mac computer or download a custom firmware from the internet, then use iTunes to restore it (Shift + Click)

    Note: downloading custome firmwares is probably illegal, and you have the chance that some idiot uploaded a OEM firmware (renaming it to a custome name) and you will will end up locking your phone.

    The Dev Team's blog post says:

    So I have *not* updated to 3.1 I still have my 3GS at 3.0.1. But it's not pwned (which I think is the same situation as the OP). In that case you can't even use the PwnageTool to upgrade, right?

    I captured 3 files:

    iBEC.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw
    iBSS.n88ap.RELEASE.dfu

    But I guess even with those, since I didn't get "on file" with Cydia, I can't jailbreak now? Is there any reason then not to update to stock 3.1?

    Let me say it one more time.

    IF YOUR PHONE IS WORKING CORRECTLY ON 3.0 OR 3.0.1, YOU CAN JAILBREAK WITHOUT RESTORING FIRST!!!!! JUST FREEKIN RUN REDSN0W 0.8 AND FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS!

    So I got to the part where it wants me to connect my iPhone in restore mode and my concern is: is this gonna work? Or is it going to try and repeat the signing process, be unable to, and then I have to do a real restore?

    Other problem: It will not work with the 3.0.1 firmware I have. It says "unable to recognize specified IPSW". It works fine with the 3.0 that I also have stored. Why won't it work with 3.0.1?

    Well, until PwnageTool supports 3.1.2 I guess I'm not in a huge hurry anyway...I'm only doing this to somehow get to 3.1 land without thrashing my baseband.

    Yeah , you are totally right ! i could jail break my 3gs ..

    Then , i have to unlock my iphone , unfortunately i don't have Wi-fi , so i did a research and found a tool to do the offline unlocking under the windows , and i have successfully unlocked my iphone ..

    Then i could notice that the network wasn't stable , i mean the coverage changed to 0% each 10 seconds , so i decided to used " Cydia" using my 3G connection on the SIM , i was planning to re-unlock !

    Because of none stable network , i had to repeat the operation many times until i could download the ultrasn0w installer and install it ..

    Now after rebooting , the phone rebooted on Safe mode , i tried to reboot it , now it reboots on normal mode , but it can't see any network , and the performance is too slow ...

    I can believe that i should do a restore to the original ROM OS ..

    Any ideas ? any tips ? ...

    Thanx

    Reason redsnow is not wrkong for the 3.0.1 fw is cause you need to choose the 3.0 firmware (not 3.0.1) in redsnow and then it will jb your 3.0.1 iphone 3GS

    i have 3.0.1 , and i did the Jailbreak , then i used the following tool:
    ultraSn0w offline unlock iPhone 3G 3.0 no need internet or wifi ! - Hackint0sh
    It unlocked the phone , but the network wasn't stable so i decided to test the ultrasn0w tool under the cydia , after that the phone is not recognize the network anymore ..
