Thread: Restoring to 3.1.2

  1. #1
    Default Restoring to 3.1.2
    I have my blobs of file with cydia. Do I need to upgrade to the newest version of iTunes? I am restoring to rejailbreak with spirit, I hate not being able to reboot unless I'm at home, (I have blackra1n right now). Also I am wondering how I would get back all my aps that I paid for without repaying, like lock screen, iblacklist, etc? And is there anything I need to know before doing the restore?

    Here's a guide:
    Restore iPhone 3GS to 3.1.2 Using SHSHs on File with Cydia | Windows
    No you wont have to pay for packages from cydia that you've already purchased. Cydia will remember your phone.

    I assume you mean that iTunes can't find the 3.1.2 ipsw, download another one and place it on your desktop and that way it's easy for you to point iTunes at the file (if you used safari or internet explorer to download the ipsw then it got downloaded as a zip instead of ipsw, just change the zip to ipsw and you should be good to go)

    It found it, it just doesn't reconize it as a ipsw file. I thought maybe I didn't have a zip program on my laptop, so I downloaded a free trial of winzip. I couldn't seem to get it to work right so uninstalled it, now I don't think I have a zip program because when I try to open the program it says, "Application not found". And how do I change it to a ipsw file?

    The firmware should not be in zip format. Change the extention from .zip to .ipsw. Or redownload it with firefox. Internet explore saves it as the wrong file type.

    After it sayes it is verifying with apple. When I jailbroke, I clicked Make My Life Eaiser...At the top of the cydia page it used to say, "This device has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS/iOS: 3.1.2
    Now it says, "this devicce has SHSHs on file for iPhone OS/iOS: 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1
    I ran tinyumbrella and it says,

    under the advanced tab in tinyumbrella change it to iPhone 3GS and firmware 3.1.2 and see if it will get the shsh from cydia since it used to show on your phone that you had it

    ^^This is it. Error 3194 usually pertains to bad/missing SHSH blobs.

    It sounds like Umbrella has at least your 4.0.1 blobs, so even if you can't come up with your 3.1.2 blobs, you'll still be able to restore to a firmware that can be jailbroken, unlockable, and will boot untethered (4.0.1) using Umbrella.

    And yes, after you log in with your e-mail and password in Cydia, you'll be able to redownload your paid packages for free. If you're using the same phone (sounds like you are) you might not even have to re-login. Point is they'll be there and they'll be free.

    Tried it and it says,
    CYDIA DOES NOT HAVE YOUR SHSH FOR iPhone3GS 3.1.2 (7D11) THERE IS NO WAY FOR YOU TO GET THEM. SORRY. YOU ARE JUST TOO LATE.
    I dont understand what happened, I clicked make my life eaiser when i jailbroke.
    What are my alteratives?

    Ok, I tried to save my SHSH blobs for iPhone3GS 3.1.3 (7E18), and it sayes that my SHSHs have been successfully saved. I have never been on this firmware....

    when did you initially jailbreak, it would have to have been before February 2nd or 3rd to have gotten the 3.1.2 shsh's

    it doesn't matter which firmware your device is on, it's according to which firmware apple is signing, I'm on 4.0 on my i4 but I have shsh's for 4.0, 4.0.1, and 4.0.2

    The whole reason I want to restore is because i dont like this teathered jailbreak, I have been having a problem lately and i would like to be able to reboot without being around a computer. Would it be better to upgrade to 3.1.3 or 4.0.1?

    Seconded. Both are also SIM-unlocked by ultrasn0w. It's all your personal preference. You have the luxury of changing your mind later (gotta love backed up SHSHs).

    Well, I,m stuck again....It,s giving me the same error 3194 after trying to restore to 3.1.3

    are you using an official 3.1.3, if you aren't sure try downloading one from the download section of this forum (I personally would do this anyway just to make sure), is the restore process even starting or is it erroring out before it even starts?

    I downloaded it from the downloads section. It error's out right after it extracts and then it tries for about a minute to verify with apple, then the error pops up.

    have you tried uninstalling/reinstalling iTunes?

    also did you edit your host file to point at saurik's server (cydia) or try a local restore using tinyumbrella (when you hit the start TSS server button I believe it automatically edits your host file for you)
