    Default iPhone 3Gs ios 4 new bootrom no blobs...any hope?
    I had my iPhone jailbroken for 6 months on 3.1.2 with blackrain and I had no reason to think my phone would ever randomly brick, but it did and I was left with no option but to restore from iTunes.

    I didn't know about blobs before so I don't have any of those, I just have a 3Gs running 4.0 with new bootrom.

    Is there a fix or tool being created, I'm looking for a jailbreak, any info would be great. Is this what comex is working on?

    Oh and also I have saved my 4.0 shsh files now incase this happens in the future, now i just need a jailbreak.

    You make it sound like you know there is one coming. How do you know this.

    There is a lot of speculation, sure there is a userland JB for iOS4 which works on all devices with iOS4 installed, included the iPhone4.

    However, there has been speculation that apple are awaiting the release of said JB before releasing iOS4.1/4.0.1 which will then quickly patch the JB rendering user's who plunge quickly into iOS4.1/4.0.1 unable to JB. However the dev team have also said they will not release until 4.1/4.0.1 is available so it's a bit of a cat and mouse situation.

    While I feel next few weeks is a fairly realistic timescale I wouldn't commit to it as the fat lady is still not singing, so the speak.

    Ok thanks for the links man but I was wondering if you know if these jailbreaks for the 3GS 4.0 is a jailbreak without shsh blobs for my situation?

    You should get your 4.0 blobs saved asap. The new jb coming may require 4.0.

    I have my 4.0 blobs saved but is the jailbreak going to be a totally new one for the 4.0 that requires no older blobs? Just the 4.0 because that's all I have.

    They have developed a new jb for 4.0 but are holding it until this new iphone 4 fix 4.1 firmware update comes out. So apple doesnt patch the exploit. So as long as you have 4.0 blobs saved you are good to go. Just to be extra safe don't download the new firmware update that will be released very soon until you check in here with people at modmyi.
