    Default Cannot restore iphone, iphone stuck on itunes & cable screen, please help
    Hi,

    Need some help please, My iphone is running 3.1.2 with modem firmware 05.11.07, I had done a tethered jailbreak/unlock using BlackRa1n, yesterday my iphone froze and restarted by iteself, I could'nt switch it back on again at work because i did not have a laptop to run BlackRa1n.

    I got back home but just could'nt unfreeze my iphone, on running BlackRa1n the iphone freezes on GeoHotz face and does not reboot, BlackRa1n just loops, I thought my iphone OS has been totally corrupted, so tried doing a restore, itunes downloaded 3.1.3 displayed message "verifying iphone restore with apple" and gave me a "the iphone could not be restored, this device isn't eligible for the requested build" error message ? I downloaded 3.1.2, put iphone in DFU mode, tried restoring it, I get the same error message, as my SSH is not saved on cydia, changing host file settings to 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com while restoring 3.1.2 did not help ?

    What am I doing wrong here, somebody please help, I am stuck without a phone ? I thought itunes should've restored to 3.1.3 without a problem ? Thanks in advance for looking

    Cheers

    without any shsh's saved in cydia then the only firmware you will be able to restore to is 4.0, no way around it, sorry

    You should be able to click on the check for upgrade button in iTunes while phone is plugged in.
    And as far as I know all 3G and 3GS phones on 4.0 are jailbreakable now.

    Ya I wish I can do that but it says I need itunes 9.2 but I have iphone + Ipad spirit jailbroken which would get messed up with itunes 9.2

    (I want to upgrade my ipod touch to ios 4)

    i restored to 4.0, itunes installed baseband 5.13.04 on my 3GS, I am now stuffed, I understand a jailbreak solution is not available yet ?

    No, but you you can still get a jailbroken iPhone 3Gs iOS 4 if you have SHSH blobs stored with Cydia by downgrading.

    In the past, did you ever click the "make my life easier" link in Cydia? You should have. If you can't remember, download TinyUmbrella and check.

    Thanks for the great post, followed your instructions

    installed TinyUmbrella

    used the advanced option, it couldnt find anything on the server for 3.1.2 but found two cached shsh files for 3.1.3, i found this strange as I had never updated the firmware to 3.1.3 because of the jailbreak and unlocking issues ? could I use this to downgrade to 3.1.3 and then upgrade back up to 4.0 ?

    currently I have the following

    ios 4.0
    bootrom 359.3.2 (new bootrom)
    baseband 5.13.04

    Thanks in advance for your time, much appreciated
