    Default Iphone 3GS Stuck on Apple Logo After Jailbreak
    hello

    I have a 3GS on 3.1.3

    I was looking to jailbreak it so i just googled and found Geohot's Limera1n jailbreak

    fired up itunes and Limera1n,did the whole power hold and home and then home only hold

    the Limera1n logo comes up and its loading for something and it goes off and then comes the apple logo and its stuck here


    Limera1n on PC says its done,says it was Limera1n RC1b jailbreak and thanks to Comex



    what should i do?

    i tried the restore thing in itunes but it gives a warning that with the restoring process it will update to the latest software which i don't want cause i don't know whether the latest iOS and baseband has been jailbroken or not


    now i am doing some research and found out Limera1n was not made for 3.1.3

    am i in alot trouble? -please help

    without shsh's you can only restore to the latest firmware, if the phone has never been jailbroken then you won't have any shsh's on cydia unless you by some chance used tinyumbrella to save your shsh's at any point, another option is if you bought it used or refurbished the previous owner might have jailbroken it and saved them, download tinyumbrella and connect your phone, once connected select it in the left panel and hit save shsh's, if there are any then tinyumbrella will save whichever ones it can and we can go from there on fixing your problem

    no limera1n isn't for 3.1.3 only 4.0 - 4.1, when you say new do you mean you bought it new?

    Limera1n does actually work great when I've used it but I've only used it on devices that had 4.0 or newer. Since you're stuck on the apple logo I would just google 4.0 firmware and download the 4.0 firmware from Redmond pie, it should be the first website that comes up, there will be a link for 4.0, download 4.0 and put it on your desktop. Connect your iPhone to iTunes and hold shift then click restore and you'll be able to restore to 4.0 then use limera1n to jailbreak, your modem firmware shouldn't go past 5.13.xx so you'll still be able to unlock with ultrasn0w if you wish to do so.

    Your not going to be able to restore to 4.0 or anything less than 4.1 (which is the only firmware apple is signing now) without SHSH on file. Since you bought the phone new, and it has never been jailbroken, I'd bet against any being on file ... but ... like j3st3r3 said above, go get TinyUmbrella and run it and see.

    But, I could have sworn there was a link to a guide to upgrade to 4.1 WITHOUT updating the baseband ...

    ^^^^^
    {EDIT: Nevermind, a quick search told me that can only be done on an iPhone 4)

    I restored a 3g from 3.0 to 3.1.3 using shift+restore in iTunes. I did save shsh with tiny umbrella before I restored though.

    a 3G doesn't require shsh's below 4.0, the OP has a 3GS, shsh's are required for all firmwares

    @foobyde Is your 3gs currently activated? Also does iTunes say it in recovery mode when you connect?

    @j3st3r3 Can't the OP use tiny umbrella to save shsh's then restore to 4.0? Assuming he's out of recovery mode and doesn't need activated.

    you can only save shsh's for the firmware that apple is currently signing, which at this point is 4.1

    If you are screwed at 3.1.3 , then your only chance is to restore to a stock firmware with shsh blogs or restore to a custom firmware and does not require shsh blogs.

    Restore to 3.1.3 again. Do you have the official sim. Don't use limera1n at 3.1.3, use spirit or jailbreakme 2.0 from Safari on your iphone to jailbreak.
    Both Spirit and jailbreakme requires your iphone to be at Home Screen, meaning you will need an official sim to trigger it
