Thread: upgrade and down grade to selected firmware with no shsh

    Default upgrade and down grade to selected firmware with no shsh
    i believe this may be covered in some of the topics here although im having troubles finding the exact info im looking for.

    it seems you can go from anything to 3.1.2 without cydia having the shsh files as i have done this on numerous phones over the last few weeks without issue.. where im having issues is that most of these cases i really want the phones to be running 3.1.3 or 4.0.

    for some reason when i try and go to either of those versions of the firmware it always comes up as invalid firmware.

    please if you have a answer to why its invalid or how to do it right let me know. this has been driving me nuts and everything i try to do doesnt seem to work.

    im running windows 7 and latest itunes... please help

    Which phone?

    For 3G I believe you don't need SHSH until you go to 4.0. For 3GS you will need SHSH.

    You can go to any firmware if you are previously jailbroken, on old bootrom and use custom firmware.

    so with custom firmware i can go to any version as long as its jailbroken now or jailbroken previously on the firmware im trying to put on ?
    if people would stop going to 4.0.1 on 3g phones i wouldnt mind... and 4.0.2 is just a joke

    It would not work if you were jailbroken with jailbreakme and if you use spirit you have to run spirit2pwn before, but yes, you can go to any firmware supported by snowbreeze/pwnagetool.

    Old bootrom only!

    the phones i have downgraded to 3.1.2 are running blackrain and spirit and all are 3g

    Ok Will is right I had my 3GS head on there!

    You should look at redsnow rather than the other tools I referenced above too. Redsnow can jb even 4.0.2 allegedly!
