Thread: reinstalling same FW?

    Default reinstalling same FW?
    A couple of days ago I bought my wife a used 3G. Installed 4.0.1 Jb it. But I want to do a fresh install of 4.0.1. The phone was a co-workers, we didnt do a complete wipe of it before I started messing with it. and it is realy slow.
    Do I need anything special to do this? Just grab the 4.0.1 file shift/restore to that file? Or no? I did the cydia shs save, I also have tiny umbrella. But do I need them if Im going to the same FW?

    Thanks

    A fresh install won't speed things up. I would recommend redoing the jailbreak with redsn0w 0.9.5-b5 and make sure the mulitasking and background tabs are UNCHECKED. You don't need to re-install Cydia either.

    I think you'll have to use the shsh w/cydia, won't you? I don't think Apple will sign a 4.0.1 FW.

    You should downgrade the phone to 3.1.2. This will speed it up significantly. iOS 4/4.0.1 will slow a 3G down significantly.

    Thanks, I'll try and mess with it. I'm just new to the 3g. I've been using my 3gs since 3.1, and before that I've only had a 2g right before that.
    I dont think I can down grade to 3.1.3 as I just got that phone the other day. So no shh files untill 4.0.1.
    Of it matters I used jailbreakme to do that phone.
