Thread: Iphone 3gs 3.0.1??

  1. #1
    Default Iphone 3gs 3.0.1??
    I finally got my spare phone fixed. The only issue is that I'm running 3.0.1 (7A400). How can I upgrade this to 3.1.2 so that I can jailbreak it?

    Since you are at 3.0.1 , you have the best stable tool to unlock with Ultrasn0w.
    Since your Iphone is not jailbroken yet, you need to jailbreak first. Use Redsn0w to jailbreak first and then use the CFW of 3.1.2 or 3.1.3

    When using Redsn0w to jailbreak, make sure you download 3.0 ipsw because you need to point it to 3.0 Fw to jailbreak 3.0.1
    The best way is to make a Custom Firmware from SnowBreeze (PC) but SnowBreeze only make a CFW 3.1.3 and that is fine.
    If you have a Mac , use Pwnage Tool 3.1.5 which will allow you to create a CFW 3.1.2 or 3.1.3

    Can you provide a link to a tutorial? I've used the simple and lazy way of Blackra1n in the past. New to all the other jailbreak ways

    Pwnagetool is actually the better program and I'd suggest downloading a pwnagetool made CFW instead of making one with sn0wbreeze yourself.

    So which pwnagetool version should I use? I'm running a windows system.. 3.0.1 (7A400) Firmware 04.26.08

    Windows System > SnowBreeze then, no other choice > follow the instructions and then restore to the .ipsw you created.

    Download snowbreeze. I need the location of the 3.1.2 ipsw file. Where can I download that at?

    Did you already jailbreak 3.0.1? You have to do that first, make sure you do it carefully, and don't panic or you will find yourself stuck with 3.1.3 firmware..

    No, no jailbreaking yet on this phone. I want to update to 3.1.2. I'm not switching my ATT carrier.

    So you don't care about unlock ?

    You cannot use CFW made from Pwnage tool or SnowBreeze to jailbreak without being jailbroken first.

    You cannot restore to any version except 3.1.3 because you don't have shsh file with Cydia....in your case

    You can get the 3GS firmwae for OS 3.0 from here iClarified - iPhone - Where To Download iPhone Firmware Files From and use Redsnn0w to jailbreak.

    If you are unclear and confused, then jailbreaking is not for you.

    Yes, I just want the apps. I'm not going to switch carrier since my company pays for that. I just bought the phone. Since I'm running windows, then Snowbreeze is the only tool I can use? I'm looking for steps in my long journey with other programs.Blackra1n was a simple tool.

    Blackra1n is simple and fast but it will not work anymore because Itunes will not let you restore to 3.1.2
    By the way , you mentioned you used Blackra1n before, you've got your Iphone fixed and now at version 3.0.1 . How did you get from 3.1.2 > 3.0.1?

    I used Blackra1n on the iphone that I dropped in the pool. I had a second iphone that I broke the screen on a long time ago. I just bought a new one since they were cheap at the company. Now I went and had my spare fixed. The spare hasen't worked in a long time. You can tell by the software version. I want to get this up and rolling with my old apps..

    IC, that's what i figured a different iPhone, so go ahead and do the prcedure i mentioned, it is not that difficult and besides Cfw is better than Blackra1n ( less issues), besides you have have the old bootrom which many of us do not have 

    Sorry for the spelling mistake, I am using my iPhone to answer your questions as of right now
