Thread: I messed up...

    Default I messed up...
    Ok. So today at work I goto update programs in cydia. After about 4 updates, the 5th update, the prgram wouldn't pass like 90% progression. So I stupidly restart my phone and because my jailbreak is untethered, I had to re-jailbreak it with blackra1n. I've done this many times without problems, but this time, blackrain was erroring out and telling me some dll or file was missing and wouldn't work with device.

    So I accepted that my phone that had 3.1.2, was corrupt. I goto iTunes to reinstall 3.1.2 by selecting shift and finding the .ipsw on the computer and it would not install it. It was telling me it could not install it. So I stupidly allowed iTunes to install 3.1.3

    am I screwed? I had cydia and it said my shsh was backed up but have no idea how to get that back or what to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    If your 3.1.2 SHSHs were on file then you can go back to 3.1.2 with Saurik's redirect but you cannot unlock.

    When you had it jailbroken before how long ago did you do that; first jailbreak it? Also back then did you hit the "Make my life easier" button in Cydia?

    Back in January. I think I did because I was trying to find out how to do it. I remember it telling me in small print that the shsh was backed up on server. I just don't know how to get it back

    I have mutiple computers... Xp or windows 7

    Ok. So I guess my main question is this... When I put the commands into my windows, how will saureks site know to find my old shsh file? There's no physical way of downloading it and savig to pc? Sauriks site will just know which one is mine automatically?
