    Default I know AGAIN!!
    I've searched and searched but have not run into any real solution. Got a 3G was running 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackrain and unlocked with blacksnow. I got replacement phone so I took out sim card and attempted to reset phone for resale.

    Well...bad idea. Did reset settings to delete all media and contents. Got the usual warning it'll take an hour blah blah blah. Now stuck on apply logo (no wheel of death). Can't get it to DFU mode. Got iTunes to recognize but REALLY don't want to restore and forced to updat to 3.1.3.

    I missed the deadline for SHSH to cydia by a couple of days

    please help..[email protected]

    THANK YOU!

    No, as simtech said the 3g doesn't require shsh's so you can restore to 3.1.2 with no problems

    If you have restored to 3.1.3 , yes , you are doomed. Did you not know that you have to do the Shift + Restore or Alt + Restore procedure ?

    Nope haven't restored yet. How do I restore it to 3.1.2? Do I need a custom ISPW?

    No you do not need a custom ipsw, in iTunes hold the shift key while you click restore and point iTunes at the 3.1.2 ipsw

    Went online and downloaded 3.1.2 ipsw, restore using shift button...and voilą it worked. Oh btw this time I did everything using my sim card installed. JB with blackrain and unlocked it with blacksnow. Worked like a charm. Thanks for the help ppl.
