    Default Theoretical question about jailbreak and restore.
    I am currently on 3.1.2 with 05.11.07 jailbroken using Blackrain. I have the old boot. I have the 3GS 16gb. I have my SHSH file stored locally and with Cydia (for 3.1.2).

    My question is this. If tomorrow my iPhone stops working for some reason and REQUIRES a clean OS install (it's happened to me before and I was FORCED to restore). How would I make sure that I keep 3.1.2 and my modem firmware intact??? I guess Apple has long since stopped signing 3.1.2 now that 3.1.3 (and soon 4.0) is out. What steps do I take to safeguard my jailbreak and unlock (if I choose to unlock). I remember being forced to restore to 3.1.2 back when there was no JB and I was pissed off. Thanks.

    If you have 3.1.2 shsh on file then just change your hosts file to look at saurik's server and you can chose 3.1.2 to restore. Thus saving your baseband.

    Default Host File
    I can relate ... as this has just happen to me. Could some one PM me the host file changes needed for a Windows box?

    Thanks In Advance!

    Put this in your host file:

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    C : \Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts is where it is at for windows.

    You could also just use a custom firmware. That skips the signing process so you don't need to use SHSH files.
