    Default Jailbreak Help...hopefully an easy answer...
    I would like to jailbreak and gain access to cydia once again...

    I have a 3gs and am currently running OS 4.0 using WindowsXP

    I have read it isnt possible to jailbreak but came across this saying it IS possible by following the steps. I downloaded the files (blackra1n and the restore) but my itunes says its incompatible?

    Point your hosts file to the Cydia Server where your 3.1.2 SHSH blobs are stored.
    Restore to 3.1.2 EVEN IF you are on 4.0 official.
    These are 2 steps that (to me) need some explanation.



    1. It gives me the error that the file isnt supported/compatible??
    2. how do you know if you have blobs on file?

    Thanks.

    Download umbrella/tiny TSS to see what shsh you have.
    What firmware were you jailbroken on before? Did you have Cydia save your SHSH files before? Do you have the old bootrom or new bootrom? Have you properly altered your iTunes hosts file?

    currently running the tinyumbrella.exe
    do i start tss server?
    I clicked display SHSHs and it showed nothing...?

    downloading the correct restore file. hopefully this works...

    this did not work. it still gives me error 3194 and it doesnt validate with apple and YES i did the notepad host change.

    Ok. It is possible that you did not have your 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 shsh saved in Cydia. If this is the case then you cannot downgrade at all which also means you cannot jailbreak right now. Do you have a new bootrom or old? What was the jailbroken firmware you were on before?

    Idk about the bootrom and if I restored the phone after the jailbreak would that erase the shsh info?
    And I'm pretty sure I jailbroke using both 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 I had to do it twice. Once before and once after.

    Did you ever press the "Make My Life Easier" button in Cydia? When you were jailbroken did you have to run blackrain everytime your battery died or you turned your phone completely off?
