    Default 3Gs jailbreak question
    I had to have my 3Gs replaced because of 3g issues...the phone they sent me is a refurb of course and has the old bootrom (verified with usbview), it is on 3.1.3 but i was wondering if it's possible to jailbreak with Spirit and then load a custom 3.1.2? I have tried from home screen, dfu, and recovery with no success. If it's on home screen it just sits at "preparing iphone for recovery" or something like that. in both dfu and recovery i get error 1600. any help or answers would be appreciated

    Eventhough you have the old bootrom, once Spirit jailbreak is used, CFW will not work anymore.

    Unfortunately that is the only option for now, but maybe sometime when Redsn0w has a new release for 3.1.3 jailbreak, you can restore to stock 3.1.3 again and then use Redsn0w to jailbreak and Pwnage Tools thereafter ( the wonders of Old bootrom )
