    If your 3gs has old bootrom, try to restore it with custom firmware. That will get you back on business.
    If it has new bootrom, you can try blackrain or Redsnow to reboot it.
    good luck

    Where can I find blackra1n for 3.1.3?

    Those sites are fake. There is no Blackra1n for 3.1.3.

    Use f0recasy from ih8snow.com and find out which bootrom you have. If it's the old one, and you've been jailbroken before, you can jailbreak 3.1.3 with Redsn0w.

    F0recast* sorry typo

    Umm blacksn0w is the unlock for 5.11.07 it's not Windows or Mac specified... It's in Cydia.

    Are you asking for Redsn0w? Or Blackra1n? Or what?

    Um that's a misleading comment. Not all 3GS are stuck in a rut some noobs reading this might get confused don't you think? If f0recast says you can jailbreak with SHSH files and you don't have them then yes you'll have to wait.

    I guess I should've been more specific. It was actually a reply to your last post. Redsn0w won't work on a 3GS on 3.1.3 and someone might assume that it would based on your post.

    By the way, f0recast doesn't actually check what the bootrom version is, it just looks at serial number. In my opinion, f0recast is pretty bad.

    Well as long as we got that all cleared up. F0recast at least tells you if your stuff is jailbreakable/unlockable and whether it'll be tethered or not. It's ok I guess lol. Bootrom I guess you'll just have to rely on looking at the 4th and 5th of the serial then to know if it's the older or newer one.

    Isn't there like another way to check it but it's all complicated and whatnot? Lol I read up on it somewhere but didn't really look too deep into it.

    Yeah, you can check manually the same way you check your ECID. With USBView and the phone in DFU mode. The iBoot version is what tells if it's the old or new bootrom.
