Thread: Jailbreaking 3.0 3GS

  1. #1
    Unhappy Jailbreaking 3.0 3GS
    Hearing the horror stories of the 3.1, some1 please answer this question.

    I have a factory unlocked 3.0 3GS brand new in its box, and of course I was not able to put my ECID SHSHs on file in cydia.

    Will I be able to perform the jailbreak using the traditional procedure [shift] restore 3.0.ipsw, redsn0w locate 3.0.ipsw, DONE.

    If there's a method, please help me out. Or point me to another post that answers this question.

    Thanks in advance!!!

    But if you press shift + restore in itunes and try to point it to a 3.0 or 3.0.1 FW, wont itunes shut down in the middle of the restore and screw up your iphone and your stuck with using 3.1?

    OP: Since your 3gs already has 3.0 on it, just run redsn0w and select the 3.0 firmware and jailbreak. Then when the 3.1 jailbreak comes out, upgrade to 3.1, jailbreak, and get your ECID on file with cydia so you can jailbreak in the future.

    Thanks Petoria..
    Now, curiosity is kicking in, what if I want to upgrade to 3.0.1

    Is it possible to perform the shift-restore to 3.0.1??? then redsn0w using 3.0, like it was done before?

    No, apple isnt signing any more FW that is under 3.1 for the 3gs. If you attempt to do it, it will fail and you would then be forced to upgrade to 3.1
