Thread: iPhone 3GS 3.1.2 to ios4

    Unhappy iPhone 3GS 3.1.2 to ios4
    HI
    FIrst of all thanks very much to all the people putting in effort to jailbreak iPhone.

    Secondly, i want to upgrade my iphone 3GS running 3.1.2 to 4.0 but the latest version itunes lets u update to is 4.0.2 for which jailbreakme.com doesn't work. Phone is already jailbroken with blackra1n and unlocked with ultrasn0w.

    I want to upgrade it to 4.0 so then i can jailbreak it with jailbreakme.com (thanks comex).

    I tried the method by which u restore 4.0 to older version and tried to select a newer version i.e 4.0 but the problem is it says that restore will be verified with apple after finishing.. so i stopped the restore.

    I was wondering is there any way to upgrade my phone to 4.0.. i do have the ipsw for it? My itunes version is 9.2.1.

    Thanks

    Go to cydia on your phone, and at the top of cydia what shsh blobs does it say you have saved?

    If you jailbreak at 3.1.2 is jailbroken by Blackra1n, and you do not need to hook up to a pc to power on, then you can restore to custom firmware of iOS 4.0.
    PC : Download SnowBreeze 1.6 or 1.7 to create a cfw iOS 4.0
    Mac : Download Pwnage tools 4.0.1 to create a cfw of iOS 4.0
    Put your Iphone into Recovery mode
    Do the Shift + Restore to CFW
    That's it.

    I have tethered jailbreak with blackra1n due to it being new bootrom. Penage and sn0wbreeze both work for older bootroms.

    That is correct, New bootroms should stay away from CFW.

    If you have 4.0 or 4.0.1, there are two methods to go about restoring.
    One is to use the tss server and the other is to point your hosts to Cydia by adding this line :
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    and do the restore to 4.0 or 4.0.1

    Download this The Firmware Umbrella you can use it to help you restore to 4.0.1 since you have the blobs saved. Read the readme file for the program it will explain how to use it (fairly simple). Also you can just edit your host file with cydias ip. Then you can jailbreak your phone untethered at JailbreakMe

    Download Tiny Umbrella.
    Plug in your iphone
    Click Advandced Option
    Grab the required shsh from Cydia.
    Click Display shsh to see if it is there.
    Start tss server
    Put your Iphone into Recovery Mode.
    Do the Shift + restore to the 4.0.1 ipsw

    OR Edit your hosts file with Notepad by pointing your hosts file to Cydia by adding this line :
    Cwindows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts, you have to select *.* all files to be able to see the hosts file.
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
    save it, reboot your pc.
    Put your Iphone into Recovery mode
    Then Shift + Restore to the ipsw that has shsh file with Cydia.

    Are you sure bout the IP adress to add in the hosts file ?
    Iw tried it a few times with no luck.
    So i did a ping on cydia.org to find the IP and it came back with 74.208.105.171 so i tried that adress in the hosts file 2, but same **** --> no luck.
    As you can se i have the SHSH´s on file


    And the hosts file looks like this.


    and itunes still gives me an error message

    Translation:
    iPhone-unit "Homies iPhone" could not be updated.
    This unit can not use the requested build.

    Any ideas whats wrong, is it me doing wrong or is cydia server down ?

    Thanks in advance..

    Ok I have a 3gs (3.1.2)Jailbroken with Blackrain.
    It is NOT a tethered break. I can restart without the PC.
    My Shsh has been onfile with cydia and it says I have shsh on file for every rev.

    I was all up on jailbreaking when I did this almost a year ago but now I am out in the weeds again.
    you say "put your iphone in recovery mode" is there a thread that explains this?
    what is the "Shift + restore to CFW"
    After I do this do I need to change my itunes rev? If so which Itunes do I want?

    Thanks!

    also itunes says ''The SIM card inserted in this iPhone does not appear to be supported. ONly compatible SIM cards from a supported Carrier may be used to activate iPHone. Please insert the SIM card that came with your iPhone or visit a supported Carrier's store to receive a replacement SIM card.''
    I can receive calls and messages after using ultrasn0w but i cant make calls or send msgs since its stuck on emergency screen.
    Please Help!

    Are you sure that you are updating the host file ?

    you need to add it to the bottom without the # it should look like this


    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    #127.0.0.1 localhost
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com


    I would copy and past from mine from #127.0.0.1

    Hope this works

    Yes im sure.
    But i tried to update it again.
    And now a get a 3014 error instead !?
    What does that mean ? Cant find any specific abot that error...

    Can it be that i dont have my phone in restore mode ? Because i just want to update my phone and not RESTORE and have to install all my apps, games, themes and utils from scratch again.

    *EDIT 1*
    Now i come a bit longer in the process, the phone displays the USB --> itunes logo and after that goes to DFU mode i guess. A few seconds later iTunes pop's up an error message (13) what ever that means ?
    I even tried the POWER+HOME button to DFU same again error (13)
    I'w tested all USB ports on my computer and i have no antivirus installed.
