    Try using ireb from hi8sn0w it possibly eliminates all errors

    when did you save your shsh's to cydia? if it wasn't before Feb. 2nd or 3rd then the shsh's you saved are 3.1.3 not 3.1.2 and that's why you are getting the error

    ok thanks for the replys guys
    do you think that i should update to 3.1.3.
    then try to downgrade to 3.1.2.

    i dont know what other options i have got

    the most important thing for me is the unlock
    i have t-mobile sim on orange iphone

    what to do,what to to???

    If you're on 3.12 and need an unlock stay there. Going to 3.13 will lose your unlock for sure due to the baseband change. You will be able to jailbreak 3.13 on your 3gs soon with the upcoming Spirit release but there is likely NO new unlock till iPhone 3.2/4.0 arrives.

    Per apples website error 1611 refers to hardware issues
    to be sure try another pc/mac, another USB port, another sync cable.
    If all else fails take it to a qualified repair shop and the "bad" hardware could be relpaceable.

    Good luck!

    also read that it may be the battery
    which is replaceable
