Thread: restore question

  1. #1
    Default restore question
    Iphone 3GS 4.0.1
    iPhone 3G 3.1.3 (this is the one asking about)
    PC Vista

    Sorry if this is a dup post, tried to post earlier and still not seeing it here, so trying again.
    After both my phones froze on reboot following Rock updates, they froze on apple logo.
    Forced them into dfu using power/home button.
    After editing host file etc 3GS fine now.
    I do not remember if I restored to latest backup or a previous one. Anyway was able to get contacts back.
    3G took a diff method to get back to 3.1.3 and JB again.
    Tried twice to point it at backup for 3.1.3 and no luck.
    Then used an old ver of QuickPwn per a post I found.
    And it kicked it out of recovery and back to 3.1.3.
    Then I JB w jailbreakme.
    Now I wnat to go to 4.0.1 and get contacts back as well.
    Should I restore from most recent backup.
    Or will this trash my JB since its from a nonJB and at 4.1?
    Any help appreciated.

    I can't understand why you guys have a problem syncing Contacts, all your contacts will be stored in either Outlooks,Google Contacts, Windows Contacts or Yahoo Address book on your computer. You can always sync back the contacts eventhough if you chose to setup as new iphone.

    No, you will have to jailbreak again each time you do a restore.

    For 3G : you can restore to 3.1.3 , you do not need shsh blogs. You can use redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak but you have to point to 3.1.2 ipsw.

    As long as you do not restore to 4.1, all other basebands can be unlocked.
