Thread: 3.1.2 restore help!!

    Default 3.1.2 restore help!!
    hi
    im currently running a jailbroken iphone 3gs running 3.1.2 (7D11) 05.11.07. i want to restore the phone without upgrading to 3.1.3 and not being able to jailbreak it.

    in cydia it says at the top in green:
    'this device has SHSHs on file for iphone OS:3.1.3'
    then at the bottom in grey it says:
    ' iphone 3G(S), iphoneOS 3.1.2, cydia 1.0.3044-65'

    tried restoring it using the notepad way adding to the hosts file and i still get the message saying i cannot restore to this firmware.

    any ideas how i could restore it now?

    do you have to re-run the jailbreak program every time you reboot your phone

    ohh no. i jailbroke my iphone using blackrain if that helps. i jus dont understand why cydia would have it saved as 3.1.3 if im still using 3.1.2

    since your jailbreak is an untethered jailbreak (meaning you don't have to re-run the jailbreak software everytime you resart/reboot your phone) you need to search google for a custom 3.1.2 ipsw made with pwnagetool (very important) and restore using the shift+restore method...the reason cydia says that it has 3.1.3 shsh's on file and not 3.1.2 is that apple is currently only signing the 3.1.3 firmware...once again your jailbreak must be untethered for the above mentioned to work...

    i guess you have to update or restore to stock 3.1.3 but like i said i was on 3.1.2 jailbroken and cydia was giving me that stupid header mismatch? error...so i try to delete some sources...boom next thing you know i had no choice to restore...but like i said i edited the hosts file on my windows xp (74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com.)and it work...it gave me the erorr 1600 ithink...bu use blackra1n and finally on the go....i know i already wrote almost the same post lol sorry....feel like writing...good luck...

    hey iDntfkabout

    glad to hear that you got your problem fixed since i'm in the exact same situation as you. I jailbroke after 3.1.3 was released so Cydia only has 3.1.3 available for me.

    Since you have the experience with it now, can you please do a write up to explain how and what you used (links to downloads would be great) to do this restore? It's hard to follow reading bits and pieces from different ppl on this thread.

    thanks, i really appreciate it!
