Thread: How to Fresh Jailbreak iPhone 3GS 4.0.1

    Default How to Fresh Jailbreak iPhone 3GS 4.0.1
    I've been trying to jailbreak my iPhone for several days now. I feel like I've tried everything. I didn't decide to jailbreak until after I had updated to 4.0.1 therefore I don't have any SHSH blobs saved. I've tried pwnage tool 4.0 but then I finally saw that you had to have been previously JB so that didn't work. I tried 3.1.2 but I got a few error messages, with the final one being that this device is no longer eligible. This is when I learned of SHSH blobs. Is there any way to downgrade without the SHSH blobs saved? I don't care about having to leave 4.0, I just want to jailbreak. Finally, after I had given up on trying to do it by myself I decided to just try and save my SHSH blobs from 4.0.1. This is where I'm stuck now. I used tiny umbrella but where it should recognize the device it says INVALID X.X.X (XXXX). It says I've saved my SHSH blobs but it says that they are for 4.0, not 4.0.1 and they will only work if the device and software match up. How do I for sure save my 4.0.1 SHSH blobs? Where are these saved at for when I do need to use them? I am a new Mac owner so using terminal is extremely tricky for me. Any constructive comments will be welcomed.

    So if I have a 3gs , not mc model on 4.0 never jailbroken , will I be able to jailbreak with the new release everyone is waiting for ? Or am I screwed because it had to have been jailbroken before and saved shsh blobs??

    You should be fine! From what I've read in other topics it should be able to jailbreak all current iDevices!

    You can still save your blobs with Tiny Um. if you want to by checking the advanced box and make sure you select your device(3Gs) and that it says 4.0.1...click save then you will not get the XXXinvalid error...
    If I were you I would just watch for the jailbreak...

    I had that same problem. Then I updated to the newest TinyUmbrella and it didn't show up as invalid after that. Now that I have my "blobs" saved, what's next? I've been working on this for hours and still no luck. Please someone help.

    Guys, i have similar problem as the OP.
    I have an iPhone 3Gs, old bootrom, and i accidently updated to 4.0.1.
    i just acquired the iphone recently, and it was already on 4.0 when i got it.
    i wasnt able to save any shsh blobs or jailbreak it on any previous firmwares.
    is there any way i can jailbreak it NOW, or do i have to wait?

    I don't get it... How do people update by accident? I've had the first three iPhones and I have not ever upgreaded by mistake... People should be more cautious. I mean iTunes askes more then once if you want to update software. Pay attention people....

    I don't understand either, unless they just randomly click stuff w/o reading anything. But I think in general, updating anything right away (except for anti-virus programs) is a bad idea.

    My iPhone came already updated to 4.0.1. So there's no way to fresh jailbreak/unlock 4.0.1 yet? Is there a workaround like downgrading to 3.1.3 to fresh jailbreak and then jailbreaking again with 4.0 or something?

    So in order to save your shah blobs do I need to be jailbroken? Do I request from apple? It says it will not save them that way? I don't have anything with Cydia yet so I dont know how it would save to something I don't have yet.

    No, you can back them up on an iphone that is not jailbroken yet..
    Go to The Firmware Umbrella and download tiny umbrella, launch the app and you'll see a prompt to save you SHSH files.. that's it =)

    Same as me, you have to wait until they come out with a jailbreak for ppl on iOS 4 and not jailbroken. No way to downgrade if you haven't been jailbroken before.

    You have to be jailbroken in order to save blobs.
