    Default Help am in a pickle and need some help
    I had a jailbroken and unlocked 3.1.2 but it has gotten stuck in a boot loop.

    I can put it in DFU and itunes recognises it but will itunes/apple will not sign my 3.1.2

    What should I do? I dont want iOS4 yet but need to keep my jailbreak and unlock.

    Sorry for the annoying question but I have been away from the forums etc for a while and have forgotten everything I knew

    To the best of my knowledge the 3GS has used pwnage tool and blackrain so far.

    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Hmm, so your on a 3G[S] in bootloop, currently on 3.1.2 Blackrained, but you don't have any SHSH saved for any firmware? Correct?

    In this case, you can either re-run Blackra1n or use iRecovery to try and get out of bootloop or it may be possible to restore a cooked iOS4 firmware. I know you said you didn't want iOS4 yet but it may be the only way and provided you have cooked your firmware and you are on OLD boot it would give you a working JB on new iOS.

    Can you help with explaining this - as I say I am a bit out of practice.

    I know I stored my info on cydia - but I dont know when or how to check.

    Where should I go from here?

    I am unsure if tinyumbrella or autoshsh will tell you because I only used them to put my original SHSH on and have not done so since.

    The easiest way is to try to downgrade to 3.1.3/3.1.2 using iTunes (make sure it is pointed to saurik - use THIS guide if unsure), if it let's you and doesn't give you 'not eligible for this build' then the SHSH is saved.

    Ok, sorry, throwing too much info at you at once I guess, baby steps, firstly plug you phone into the computer and run blackrain, what happens?
