Thread: Dead 3GS

  1. #1
    Default Dead 3GS
    Hello
    I have 32GB new bootrom 3GS.
    • it originally has 4.0.
    • it only has 4.1 shsh blobs
    • it was jailbroken by jailbreakme.


    i accidentally reset all content and setting.
    now it shows me apple logo only. but i can access DFU and recovery modes

    i know that greenpoison is close. but i really need to run the phone.

    what can i do to restore the device to any firmware or even install 4.1 without upgrading baseband??

    pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee help

    There's nothing you can do, you've lost your JB and UL. Don't upgrade to 4.1 as that will upgrade your baseband too and put you even further back.

    Depending on how the Greenpoison tool works, you might be able to upgrade without updating your baseband, so just be patient and don't do anything rash.

    Sorry for the bad news.

    I don't think that is a working tool.

    I maybe mistaken, but I did this when giving my wife my 3gs. I got the logo & spinning wheel & it stuck at this for what seemed like an age. After several resets ( using home & power button) it came back to life without the need to alter the firmware in any way.

    It's not going to come back to life after a reset unfortunately.

    Sure you can, turn it off, while holding the home button, plug it in until you see iTunes cable logo.

    What shall i do after the announcement of green poison that it's not support 3GS ... Please Help !!!

    Hmmm, only you can decide what to do. You can for a new jailbreak, I would think it may not be until next month (but who knows).

    Alternatively, you can upgrade the phone to 4.1, get it working again, and sell it on ebay. Then buy another one already jailbroken or able to be jailbroken and unlocked.

    Selling it after upgrading it may be best, but 3gs with jailbreakable firmware installed will sell at a premium. Could you try returning it to apple as faulty, you may get a replacement that's been previously jailbroken & has shsh stored

    What is your baseband now ? Upgrading to stock firmware will upgrade your baseband, to preserve it you will need custom firmware to do that.

    You can only use it if you have the old bootrom, do you know what bootrom you have ?

    Your 05.13.xx baseband is the BB of ios 4.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2. Don't go any further or you will be locked out.

    So, you can't preserve your baseband. What are you trying to do ?
