Thread: Upgrading 3GS to 4.0 FW Stuck around 60%!!

  1. #1
    Exclamation Upgrading 3GS to 4.0 FW Stuck around 60%!!
    I have a 3GS JB with Blackrain on 3.1.2 tethered JB.

    I downloaded the new FW from apple for the new upgrade and commenced to upgrade it. It was stuck at 60% for about 3-4 hrs last night and would not move. I removed the cable to start the process over but then it said the iphone was in recovery mode and I must "recover" the phone. It is still doing the same thing and I cannot do anything. It is still trying to upgrade as of now.
    #1 - Can I take it to apple in the way it is and get a new 3gs without them knowing since it is stuck at thre restore point and they will have to restore it regardless?

    #2 - Anyone have a fix for this?

    Dude did you try to put it in DFU mode?

    Hold the home button and sleep button for around 10 seconds then release the sleep button and you should see a connect to itunes picture so then upgrade to 4.0.1.

    From what I've seen I dont think you can upgrade to 4.0 if thats what ur sayin try 4.0.1 cuz for me it says the device is not eligible when i try to restore.
    Please press the Thanks button if I ever helped, you'd be helping me

    The crazy thing is many people have actually had to wait for about 4 hours to update to iOS4, so it might not actually be a problem. Anyway, like robben10 said, put it into DFU mode (video tutorial) and upgrade to 4.0.1. Most people would agree that you should also set it up as a new device.

    I would reboot computer, try a different usb port, and let it restore through itunes even if it is up to 4.0.1, then use either Redsnow and Ultrasnow, or jailbreakme.com and ultrasnow.

    Ok so I have all my IPSW's, have downloaded off different sites, have tried a different computer, tried a full factory restore to 4.0 and 4.0.1, tried redsn0w, I know how to put it in DFU mode and let the update run for 7+ hours!!

    Believe me guys I have tried it.

    I appreciate the help I do.

    The one thing I got some hope with was redsnow. I was able to get to the end when it said it was successful and it said "downloading jailbreak data" but then right after it went back into DFU mode. I am about to take it to apple and hope for the best.

    Any more info would be useful. I have tried reaching out to @comex and @musclenerd.

    So can you please tell me where you are stuck right now? DFU mode?

    P.S. what version of itunes do you have? Get the latest one.

    I have the the latest iTunes 9.2.1. I am stuck in the DFU mode. I went into "About this computer" "More info" and saw that the iphone is in the USB port and there is also no "bootrom" version there so I dont even know what version it is.

    What I am afraid of is that I will take it to apple and they will take it out of DFU mode and see that it was JB. But I feel that at this point the phone is all F'd up (excuse my language) and they will get no where.

    That is the one thing apple has against us they know it's been toyed with n that voids the warranty,I know someone that works there and that's there only defense know that it's legal

    If it's in dfu mode try blackrain run it as administrator try a few times I did that n it worked if blackrain doesn't work try spirit in dfu mode they both worked for me
