    Default Can I downgrade & Jailbreak?
    Ok, so I bought a second hand 3Gs (well actually I bought 3 but wth). it's firmware is 4.0 and the baseband is 05.13.04 . I don't have it yet, and only on monday will I know if it has the old bootrom or the new one.
    Considering I have the new one and i'm screwed:

    I have no idea what "shsh blobs" means, so obviously neither do I nor the guy who previously ownes the phones, has those blobs thingies saved.

    Can I downgrade to 3.1.2, jailbreak, unlock & have a pleasant life?

    If so... How?
    If not... What to do?

    Thanks A-lot!

    Did you ask the guy you bought it from whether it has been jailbroken before, if it has not, it is impossibile to downgrade and make your life easy.

    I have'nt and I'm pretty sure it hasn't beacuse he used it legitimately.
    Let's say he has jailbroken it b4, will I be able to downgrade even without the blobs thing?
    also, why can't I download the shsh file of someone else?

    If it hasn't been , then you are stuck at iOS 4.0, there is no way you can downgrade your fw because apple will not allow downgrading to jailbreak. You can't use someone shsh blogs, every shsh blobs is unique to the firmware and ECID combined to create a unique shsh blobs
