Thread: Tough Decision

    Default Tough Decision
    Hi everybody. I just got registered but haven't found any specific thread connected to the question I have.

    I have a 3gs with 3.1.2 unlocked and jb with blackra1n. (tethered)

    My mom has a 3.0.1 3g I phone and asked to fix hers. She's having some issues like calls dropping frequently.
    I'm unsure if this is a firmware problem and I would like to try to update JUST the firware to 3.1.2, and with the OLD bootrom I should be able to achieve an untethered jailbreak with BlackRain.

    How would ya'll do that? Do you think is a good idea?

    With a 3g, it will always be untethered. If you want to update just firmware without the bb update. Use pwnagetool on a mac or google it. You can find one online, then shift click restore in iTunes and point to file. It will then update firmware and leave bb alone. I have been told that the shift click restore never updates bb but why not jb with a custom firmware

    3.1.2 created with pwnagetool if you have access to a mac...if not google and download one that was created with pwnagetool...if she doesn't need it unlocked to use on unofficial carrier then get one that is not activated and if she does get one that is acticated...
