    Default Give a newbie a hand downgrading 3GS
    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the forums and this is my #1 post. I've bought a new 3GS 32Gb and made all the updates iTunes told me to do. I know i know, shame on me.



    This is my iBoot and;



    This is my firmware and baseband.

    I don't need to unlock my phone since I will maintain my current provider but I'm very interested in jailbreaking it.

    There is very information all over the web but some of it is outdated and since i'm new to the iPhone world I reminded to get an opinion over here. I also use Mac OS X Snow Leopard.

    What should I do? Is it possible for me to downgrade to some other version?

    Thanks in advance,

    Goroka

    You can only downgrade if you have SHSH. If not then you will have to wait for the new jailbreak for 4.1 to come out.

    I'm talking about this...

    iH8sn0w.com | Jailbreak your iPod touches and iPhones

    and;

    iOS 4.1 Jailbreak Released for iPhone 3GS

    Does this applies to my 3GS?



    What does this refurbished means? I bought this new and sealed.

    That came out yesterday and no that wont help you. For that to work on a 3GS you have to be jailbroken already on a lower firmware, and you need SHSH to be able to downgrade and do this which you probably dont have since you just bought it new.

    This is what you have to wait for:

    How reliable is this iH8sn0w by the way? I checked the dev team site and it's still only the betas for 3G that's out.

    It depends who you ask I guess. Anybody associated with the dev team will probably say not very reliable. But he has done a lot for windows users and I have used his tools before and they worked fine for me. He doesn't really come up with anything on his own, he kind of takes other peoples work and repackages it so that more people can use it (which is good and bad). From what I understand if he gave better credit for the other people's work he is using then him and the dev team would have a lot less issues.
