Thread: 3GS 3.1.3 JB via Spirit and unlocked is now STUCK ON APPLE LOGO

    Default 3GS 3.1.3 JB via Spirit and unlocked is now STUCK ON APPLE LOGO
    Whatup party people? Really need your help on this one - it's got me scratching my head for sure.

    3GS on 3.1.3 - successfully Jailbroken via Spirit and successfully unlocked via Ultrasn0w. Fired up Cydia and clicked the "make my life easier" but - does that still work? Is Saurik still caching blobs for 3.1.3?

    As we were handing it off to the lady from Craigslist who was buying it, we did the "Settings>General>Reset> Erase All Content and Settings" and then it pooped the bed - reset to Apple Logo and won't come out of it.

    Tried:
    >Soft and hard reboot
    >DFU mode

    but still can't get it to wake up. It does enter DFU mode and then I try and reflash it with 3.1.3 but I get the message "This phone does not support this build" or whatever. I pointed my hosts file to Saurik's server but still got the same message.

    I have seen others with this problem - the silver Apple logo and after a few minutes the spinning status wheel, frozen, superimposed over the Apple Logo.

    I can't update to 4.0.1 because then I can't JB and UL and the lady from Craigslist won't be able to use it.

    I'm on iTunes 9.2 -I have not updated to 9.2.1

    Any help is much appreciated! Let me know if I left out any useful info.

    Thanks!

    Does itunes see it?

    Don't hit the erase content/settings button, just for future reference.

    Yessir iTunes "sees" the phone but only in DFU mode :-(

    If I could get iTunes to let me flash 3.1.3 again I'd be cool...

    I don't think he can restore to 3.1.3 since he doesn't have his SHSH blobs on file.

    It's worth trying, but I don't think it will work.

    It will... If you block the host for the signing servers and use recboot to take your phone out of recovery mode, you can go back.

    just covered that in my tutorial....

    Does he have the old bootrom though?

    If not, that will not work.

    OK I think I'm tracking you... Ruffi - when you say "block the host for the signing server" do you mean adding this line to my hosts file: "74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com"

    or are you talking about something different?

    Also, at what point in time do I execute RecBoot?

    yes thats the line you add.

    EDIT: Nevermind - I understand what you mean by "append your new mappings"- I don't know if my blobs are on Saurik's server - I did click the "Make my life easier" button in Cydia, but pointing my hosts file at his servers has failed so far... same message as if I were pointing to gs.apple.com "build not supported by this device" or whatever.

    Shoot - I dunno if this phone has the old or new bootrom... It's not mine... I didn't check before I started screwing around :-(

    Um... hey Ruffi: Step 3 of your tutorial has me confused:

    "•Simply append your new mappings underneath the default ones. Or edit one of the default values if you know what you are doing!"

    But append with what? Or edit how?

    Thanks!

    just updated that line.

    after adding the new line just save the file and close it.

    and to check the phones bootrom check this out:

    If it is failing at that step, then he doesn't have his SHSH blobs and your method wont work ruffi.

  15. #14
    Yeah, but shoot - this has not worked for me all night - tried this before posting at all - the problem is, even with the hosts file pointed at Saurik's server, I get the error message "The iPhone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build"

    i dont see a reason how your shsh blobs would be deleted though.... should still be there...

    me and a friend have been workin on a way to implace shsh blobs for this very reason....

    I wonder if Saurik is still caching new blobs for 3.1.3

    You can't, only when the firmware is the latest one can you get the blobs.
    If I somehow helped you, press thanks
