Thread: Updating 3gS from 3.0

  1. #1
    Default Updating 3gS from 3.0
    Hello,
    I have a 3gS with firmware verision 3.0 and baseband 04.26.08
    I would like to update it to 3.1+ so i can install and run some apps that only work on 3.x.x+
    I was trying to update it to 3.1.2 but it says it is not eligible for this build. I know that apple set a lock that i can only update my iphone to 3.1.3.
    What would be the safest way for me in doing so? and is it unlockable since my baseband is 04.26.08 if i update it manually to 3.1.3?
    Any help will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Use custom firmware to restore to 3.1.3 and unlock again with Ultrasn0w.

    Or you can use Firmware changer in Cydia. It will trick your phone into believing it is on 3.1.3. At this point in the game I would not risk an upgraded in firmware until 4.0 comes out.
