Thread: 3GS - Made a mistake (used spirit and blackra1n)

    Default 3GS - Made a mistake (used spirit and blackra1n)
    Hey guys... long story short, i used spirit to jailbreak, put blackra1n through cydia, and right after it installed, it wouldn't return to the home screen, or anything. It's in an almost complete frozen state (the apple sign showing, only). everytime i try to reboot it, or put it into recovery mode it won't let me re-install 3.1.3, or anything...

    did anyone else make this mistake yet?

    can anyone tell me how to get it back to normal?

    thank you guys immensely

    First of all you meant you installed "blacksn0w" which is the unlock payload. This is known not to be compatible on firmware 3.1.3 and causes endless bootloop. You need to force your phone into recovery mode by holding power and home until you see the iTunes logo.. then restore.

    Secondly if you were at firmware 3.1.3 then there is no way to unlock anyway b/c your baseband would be on 5.12.01. Please correct me if this is not the case.

    You must be using a Clean copy of stock fw 3.1.3 or 3.1.2 to jailbreak with Spirit ( must run in compatibiliy mode on xp or window 98 )
    So go ahead and do a restore to 3.1.3 since you are already at the 3.1.3 baseband , it doesn't matter anymore .

    You have jailbroken with Spirit, why do you run Blackra1n again. Is it Blacksn0w you are talking about. If that is the case, you cannot unlock with your current 3.1.3 baseband with Blacksn0w, it will definitely screw it up...lol

    Ok guys, Redsn0w, SnowBreeze, Blackra1n, Pwnage Tools, Spiritjb are all jailbreaking tools ( You cannot use it more than once on a restored Iphone )

    Ultrasn0w and Blacksn0w are unlocking tools to be used on 04.26.08 and 05.11....respectively. Hope this clears things up...

    Probably the end of June when OS 4.0 rolls out..No specific date. Dealing with Baseband is not an easy task.

    That is weird, regardless of what you do, you should be able to restore back to stock 3.1.3 because Apple is still signing 3.1.3.
    If you have edited the host file to point to Saurik, you have to comment out by putting a # sign infront. ( So Itunes can ask for verification with Apple Server ).

    thanks a lot
