Thread: Iphone 3G 3.1.3 restore back with no SHSH blob

    Default Iphone 3G 3.1.3 restore back with no SHSH blob
    I have a Iphone 3G with 3.1.3 baseband 5.12.01. I didn't save my SHSH blobs with Cydia or Tiny Umbrella, can I still restore it back to 3.1.3 or am I forced to upgrade to 4.x when I run it through Itunes? I'm having some issues with the phone not being able to sync music to it.

    I couldn't find any answers if you can just make a custom firmware with the pwnage tool and just restore it back?

    A iPhone 3G can restore to pre 4.0 firmware without SHSH so you should be fine.

    Just remember to press shift + restore , then you will be able to browse to 3.1.3 ipsw, if you just hit restore, then you will be taken all the way to 4.1 and get locked out.

    Use Tiny Umbrella NOW and save 4.1 SHSH blobs. ALL iDevices need SHSH for 4.0 and higher.

    Don't need to be on 4.1, just connect and save all.

    Thanks guys, for the reply. I already saved my SHSH's with Tiny Umbrella. I feel so relieved that it can stay with 3.1.3 and not go onto 4.0. I heard too many horrid stories about it being too slow or crashes too often, I rather not risk it, since the phone isn't for me. I sigh of relief for me

    Keep an eye on 4.2.1 user reports after it's released. 4.2.1 may be something that's ok for 3G users. Early reports are encouraging
