Thread: Escaping 3.1.3 recovery loop?

  1. #1
    Default Escaping 3.1.3 recovery loop?
    Hey guys, I've been posting around different threads with my situation but I figured I'd make this its own thread incase anyone else has the same problem. I'm on 3.1.3 but somehow ended up in a recovery mode loop while trying to activate/jailbreak it. My concern is that I don't want to upgrade to 4.0 since there's no JB available yet but I also can't restore to 3.1.3 because Apple has stopped signing it.

    This is a never jailbroken, never tinkered with 3gs and my question is is there anyway to kick start it out of recovery mode without restoring? Some kind of desktop utility (running OS X) that I could use?

    I'm looking at something called iRecovery but don't totally understand or trust it. Any advice would be really appreciated.

    okay,
    I had this problem on my 3g.
    Just try this.
    You have nothing to lose.
    Download blackrain, and plug in your iphone while its in recovery.

    Then launch blackrain and try to "make it rain"

    it should wait a second or two,
    and then say "Jailbreak done! blah blah blah"

    Thennnn,
    your iphone backlight should be on with nothing on the screen.
    Then hold the home and power button til it shuts off.
    Boot up,
    and youll be at 3.1.3 emergency screen.
    Pop in ya att sim and your done.
    Or jb 3.1.3
    Your choice

    I'll give this a shot simply because, you're right, I don't have anything to lose. Thanks for the advice, I'll update after I try it out.

    I was literally writing my post that said it didn't work and I was stuck on the apple screen but here I am looking at the hot damn emergency call screen!!!


    THANK YOU SO MUCH! I can't tell you how happy this makes me. Unfortunately, I don't have an AT&T sim but that's a mountain I can get over.

    Not a problem. Remember to use the "thanks" button I dont think there is a jailbreak for 3gs 3.1.3 yet.
    Just be patient.
    There will be soon enough
