    Default FREE BEER! 3GS/new iBoot/no SHSHs/3.1.3 reboot loop. Hosed, right?
    There is no free beer. Sorry, I lied. Just trying to get your attention.

    I've read a LOT of forums with all the details pointing in the same direction. BUT, being stupid as I am, I want to verify I'm as hosed (for now) as I think I am. My sit.:

    • 3GS
    • New iBoot
    • Stuck in frozen apple/restore with 3.1.3 (after hitting "Erase all content and settings" on a WORKING Spirit JB of 3.1.3 like a complete idiot.)
    • No SHSHs stored (except 4.0)
    • Can get to restore and DFU
    • No 4.0 installed yet.


    Hosed until a full 4.0 jailbreak is released (like Spirit) correct? I'm willing to get my hands as dirty as needed, but it appears there is no path for now...?

    It would seem so, you didn't happen to install Spirit2Pwn before you got stuck? If so, then you may be able to restore to a cooked 4.0 to preserve JB, otherwise stock 4.0.1 is where you'll end up. Unlucky!

    Thanks, folks! No Spirit2Pwn. Indeed, I'm screwed. I suppose I might as well install a clean 4.0 and have a lovely, shiny iPOD 3GS.

    Sadly my need for speed has lessened my appreciation of my dear old 3G, but at least she works for now!

    Is there no way you can put it back into DFU mode and restore back to 3.1.3 as apple are stil signing it?

    From everything I've read, Apple is not signing 3.1.3 anymore. (and from my own attempt to restore my phone at 3.1.3) :-(

    apple stopped signing 3.1.3 when 4.0 was released, just as they have stopped signing 4.0 now that 4.0.1 has been released, that's why it's so important to get the shsh's as soon as they are available

    Eeek, sorry. Looks like you have no choice then as i tested mine last night and downgraded to 3.1.3 to test it was working.
