Thread: Iphone 3G Version 3 cydia not loading

  1. #1
    Question Iphone 3G Version 3 cydia not loading
    Hello friends,

    I would appreciate if you could help me with a little problem I have with my iphone these days.

    Device:
    iPhone 3G
    Version 3 (7A341)
    Modem Firmware 04.26.04
    Unlocked + JB

    Problem:
    cydia not working/loading

    Question:
    is there a way to restore the iphone without updating to a new firmware? I was wondering if I could restore it on itunes and JB it again to have my cydia up and on again without having to face the unlock issue.


    Thanks!!!

    Default Yest there is!
    Download the iPhone firmware 3.0, in your case I would just download firmware 3.1.2 and still have it jailbroken/unlocked and its easier than doing 3.0

    Download the firmware here --> (Link removed)

    Once downloaded, connect the Iphone to itunes and while holding shift, click on "Restore" and then locate the firmware that you downloaded, 3.1.2 and let the iphone restore.

    Then use blackra1n to jailbreak/unlock, that should solve the problem!

    Yes you can restore with iTunes 9, but it cant be the newest version (9.2) or the one before it. AND it doesn't affect the restore, it affects the jailbreak.

    If blackra1n wont jailbreak it, than just use Spirit and that will work!

    The FW can be downloaded from the download links on this site. I certainly wouldn't use anything from the link above!

    Not entirely true I just restored to 3.1.2 and jailbroke with blackra1n on iTunes 9.2 You have to put the blackra1n.exe in CProgram Files\Common Files\Apple\Apple Application Support and run it from there.

    Just an FYI Didn't want others reading to think they were screwed!

    I have a similar problem. Cydia is stuck on the loading screen. I used redsn0w 0.9.4 for my 3g 3.1.3 with windows vista iTunes 10.1.2.17

    Can I downgrade to iOS 3.1.2 with iTunes 10.1.2.17 then use blackra1n to install icy or block?

    When I downgrade to iOS 3.1.2 will I lose my contacts, game progress, Stanza epub books and info from apps like GoodReader?
