Thread: New jailbreak help

  1. #1
    Default New jailbreak help
    I am ready to jb my 3GS: I have never done this before. I am using 4.0.2 (5.13.04) and iTunes 9 & windows pc. I do not need an unlock, just jailbreak (untethered, pref). Should I upgrade iOS or ITunes before I start??? Which method is the easiest and will work the best, as I am such a newbie ??? Thanks for the help in advance.

    you can use redsn0w to jailbreak. r update to 4.1 and use limera1n or greenpois0n. You can even upgrade to 4.2 and use redsnow but it will be teathered

    You have to update your itunes first. Go with limera1n jailbreak after you have restored to 4.1, you have to do the shift + restore to 4.1 ipsw, not hit restore in itunes which will take you to 4.2

    Hopefully , Apple is still signing 4.1, otherwise you will need shsh blogs to restore.

    If you are getting ineligible for the required build, get back here and i will show you using TU to restore.
    Make sure you download the 4.1 ipsw separately and do the shift + restore to 4.1 ipsw.

    Have you ever jailbroke your iphone 3gs before ?

    Ok, so you are a noob before you do anything
    Download Tiny Umbrealla from here : The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella
    Plug your iphone in , highlight your device name and click save shsh , see what you get.
    You can update itunes first without plugging in your iphone.

    No template, all strictly customized to the quesions. Did you know that I can type atleast 45 to 60 words per minute.

    Ok so right now I am in the process of updating iTunes. Luckily I haven't gotten any further.... Took forever to sync phone as I haven't done that in a while, lol.
    I have never jb this phone or any other.... Yet
    As
    Soon as I tunes is complete, I will follow the TU instructions..... I'm assuming I do this prior to attempting the shift restore in iTunes , right????

    Correct again. Run TU, plug your iphone in, select your device on the left and click save shsh.

    Then download 4.1 ipsw for Here and do shift restore. And select that file. Make sure you have TU running a server just incase apple stops signing 4.1 which i dont think they will.

  19. #17
    Ok. I have done the TU instructions I downloaded 4.1 ipsw from link u provided, but it is a zipped file. When I unzip I am unable to find a .ipsw file to select when I click shift + restore (just several files/folders). I'm not sure what to do now.

    Use firefox web browser two down load that way it doesn't come in as a zipped file sorry should have said something about that
