  1. #1
    Default Help!!!! stuck with Geohot image - Blackrain
    I'm using iphone 3GS 3.1.2 and using blackra1n jailbreak software and last day i reset the network settings, after that when i click the 'Make it rain' button i'm getting the Geohot image and then after some times it will go to the itune picture and then again geohot picture....
    i tried many times about 20 times but still he same problem is there.

    please tell me the solution to fix it even i downloaded 3.1.2 firmware and tried to restore it using iTunes but i got an error saying "Theiphone couldn't be restored. the device isn't eligible for the requested build"

    so please tell me how to fix this problem...i dont bother about the old data also....
    just i need a phone which can work on any carrier.

    please help me in this.....

    Thanks & Regards,
    Suveer

    first for upgrading it to 4.0 or 4.01 whether i have to ipdate it through iTunes or not?
    then only i have to unlock it using the link which you have provided...
    one more thing is the unlock is available for only certain basebands but i dont know now what is the baseband of my iphone
    so how can i check it because i cant access my phone now it is stuck with the blackrain Geohot image.

    Also tell me whether 4.0 or 4.01 has any disadvantages and at any case if i want to downgrade then whether i can do that or not?

    do you have your SHSH's???? if so you can..... and i would give it a try since i dont know the baseband stuff..... but im sure that someone else does..... just update and then try the unlock..... last time i had heard it worked on all of them...... but im sure that i am wrong..... but you are going to have to update or something so that you can know the baseband..... or maybe even try using the f0recast..... i think that will show you..... ill check and then post a reply.....

    and yes it does show the baseband.... so do that and post.....

    and the basebands for the 3g and 3gs are as follows: 4.26.08, 5.11.07, 5.12.01, and 5.13.04
