    Default Downgrading from 4.0.2
    hi all
    i have received a 3 week old iphone 3gs 16gb and its got the latest software that got uploaded
    ive been searching to try and find a way to downgrade but cant find a way as im not very technical on the phone/laptop

    but i cant find a simple enough description
    so would anyone be kind enough to break it done to basics please

    thank you very much in advance

    Basically it can't be done. Since the phone is new, it has never had the SHSH files stored either locally or thru Cydia. So you're stuck at 4.0.2. How's that for basic lol? :P

    You can't so stop wasting your time trying. Just wait till another JB tool is released. Might be a minute though because I'm sure the Dev Team will wait till 4.1 drops.

    If your Iphone 4 is new and it is 4.0.2 OTB, then don't bother trying, wait for a new jailbreak, it could be months before the new jailbreak comes out for 4.1 which is due to be released soon.

    I doubt it'll be months after 4.1 is released. Comex said there were 5+ known exploits in 4.0 and it seems as though they only used one with JBME.com. So I'd be surprised if its more than 4-6 weeks but who knows. I'm sure 4.1 will have an updated baseband so they'll have to rework sn0w as well.
