    Question In need of Upgrade solution..
    Ok please bare with me as Ive almost gone completely bonkers trying to upgrade my 3gs 3.1.3 5.13.04bb phone to 4.1 while trying to keep the ability to unlock..Although i dont really "need' to unlock it as Im on a official carrier..

    anyway here's my story http://modmyi.com/forums/3g-s-downgr...1-3-4-0-x.html

    I need another way to do this as JBme2pwn fks my phone to no end..As soon as I install it reboot my phone it goes black screen & stays that way until i restore back down to 3.1.3

    There must be a different way I can jailbreak my phone while its on 3.1.3 so I dont need to use that jbme2pwn.
    Can I not use sn0wbreeze to create a custom 3.1.3 ipsw apply it to my phone & then doing the same thing for 4.0 & then 4.1..?

    Thanks Guys
    Peace

    Get a custom IPSW that has been run through pwnagetool from a Mac user. (no sn0wbreeze for 4.1 yet). Sorry, can't post firmware links here. Make sure you trust the person otherwise you'll end up with your baseband updated.

    Get the new redsn0w released last night/this morning. Use it to get into DFU mode (click the buttons and follow directions). Shift+restore in itunes and select the custom firmware you got from a friend. Now you're on 4.1 with old baseband.

    NP, but for my method above, the iBoot version is irrelevant (I think). You just have to find that pre-pwned firmware on your own... though google could probably help.

    After redsn0w helps you into DFU (select Just enter pwned DFU now), then you use iTunes to shift+restore. You don't use redsn0w to do the jailbreaking... only to make the phone able to accept the custom firmware. It is easier on a Mac but pwnagetool is not for Windows so you have to use this workaround.
