Thread: Need to restore iPhone 3G :S

  1. #1
    Default Need to restore iPhone 3G :S
    I jailbroke my iPhone about a week ago on 4.0.1 however now "Springboard has crashed" and I can't get out of "Safe Mode" despite deleting all my cydia apps.

    So I need to restore my iPhone which I'm told would fix it but that'll put it on 4.0.2. which apparently can't be jailbroken. Although this tutorial on Youtube claims to [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIgDm0vJn-I]YouTube - HOW TO JAILBREAK 4.0.2 IPOD TOUCH 2G & IPHONE 3G[/ame] and has good feedback as well.

    So if you could help me with either getting my video out of safe mode, telling me if the video will actually work or telling me exactly how to get my iPhone to 4.0.1. ( I've seen some stuff about umbrella something and SHSH but I'm pretty confused).

    Thanks very much for any help you can give, however small, and also does anyone know when the 4.1 firmware will be out and if that will be able to be jailbroken.

    Anybody?

    Download tiny umbrella and hook up your iphone. Try to save SHSH. Try from 4.0.2 working backwards and see which ones you've got. If it's not on Cydia it will get 4.0.2 from apple so you can start your collection!

    You can unlock it if you can restore to anything but 4.0.2, but you'll need the SHSH on store with cydia to be able to do that.

    Can't comment on the youtube video.

    Thanks very much, I did have the 4.0.1 firmware saved with Cydia so I've started the TSS server. And it will restore it on 4.0.1 won't it? Because it seems to think I also have the 4.0.2 as well even though I haven't updated to that.

    Download the 4.0.1 firmware from apple and restore that.

    Tiny umbrella can get the 4.0.2 SHSH without you being on that firmware on your iphone.

    How do I download 4.0.1 from Apple? Or if I haven't downloaded 4.0.2 yet can I just restore it and it will restore on 4.0.1?

    OK, hang on, I'll google the file for you.

    Once you've got it, hold shift and click restore, it will open a browser window you can then select the file you will download.

    Here's the link to download the official 4.0.1

    Just for complete clarity - you do have a 3GS right?

    Sorry, I have the 3G, I can see the title was a bit misleading.

    Will that link still work for mine? Thanks for all the help btw, sorry for being a bit of a noob

    Yep, it's restored and is on 4.0.1, just need to wait for it to sync then I can rejailbreak it And you're probably sick of hearing it but thanks for all the help with everything and being so patient.
