Thread: Im confused and need some help please...

    Default Im confused and need some help please...
    Ok I bought an iphone 3Gs that was not unlocked and jailbroken and had been upgraded to 4.0 with Baseband 5.13.04....then of course I found out I couldnt jalibreak it so I waited for it, got impatient, sold it and bought one on Ebay unlocked and jailbroken, with cydia installed. It also has the SHSHs on file. He also said it had the "much coveted old bootrom" but when I recieved it today it is as described but it was on 4.O with 5.13.04. How is this possible? I know I didnt have the SHSH for the first one I bought so I know that may be reason but I thought you were screwed if you upgraded to 4.0 with new baseband. So what did the seller mean when he said old bootrom? I thought bootrom and baseband were the same. i duno, i know seller told me it was jailbroken with Blackra1n. Any info would help...Thanks.

    You can have the new baseband on the old bootrom. They're two different things. You could have jailbroken your old phone if you had the old bootrom.

    Well you can have a tethered and non-tethered blackra1n jailbreak. It really depends on the bootrom. If you're currently on 4.0 and your phone is unlocked then you have to old bootrom.

    Yes, you can connect to iTunes but if you want to keep your unlock DO NOT upgrade your firmware when your are promted to. Wait until you see something in the front page that your device has been both jailbroken and unlocked. Other than that, you should be able to use iTunes normally.

    I am in a similar situation with 3gs with bootrom 359.3 and baseband 5.13.04 and firmware 3.1.3. From my reading the only jailbreak is spirit but the ultimate goal is jailbroken and unlocked with 4.0 and sn0wbreeze will not work with spirit jailbreaks. I cannot got down to 3.1.2 and use blackra1n because I get the stupid 1394 error in itunes (have tried many different host file mods).

    Am I just Stuck?

    your stuck for a week, spirit will be updated for 4.0 once 4.0.1 is released to the public
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!

    Yea you can do everything in iTunes normally but when you plug in your phone you're gonna be asked to update. Just hit cancel (or do not update). Other than that it will all work fine
