Thread: Help w/3Gs in recovery mode

    Default Help w/3Gs in recovery mode
    Ok here's the setup, I have a 3Gs that is/was on 3.1.3. A friend told me I could flash it with a custom iOS4 firmware so I went to restore (shift click on windows) and went to restore it with that firmware..never fully flashed it cause it gave me a 1604 error, so then I went to flash it to 3.1.3 and it gives me a incompatible firmware pop up when I try and restore it to a stock 3.1.3 file. I've tried everything that I can to try and get it back to the stock 3.1.3 but I can't seem to get it. I was told the phone was never jailbroken so I'm betting the SHSH files aren't hosted. I used umbrella to try and find them but it couldn't find anything.

    So am I stuck with going to iOS4? I really don't want to cause I want to be able to unlock it so I can use it on TMobile but I'm at a loss on what to do next

    With no SHSH files, you are stuck going to 4.0 and wait for a new Jailbreak.

    Yeah, just tell Apple you tried to upgrade to 4.0 and now it is stuck in a boot sequence...they willjust replace it and send you home with a new one

    or just upgrade to 4.0 and hold out for the next JB to come out- which should not be long

    Unfortunately it wasn't toast and they loaded OS 4 on it so now I have a 3Gs with new bootrom and wasn't jailbroken previously so I guess I'll have to wait til the jailbreak comes out so I can unlock this
