    Default <HELP an iNoob!>: 3GS 3.1.3 old boot --> ???
    Hi guys, new to this Apple / iPhone scene.

    A friend got the new Iphone4, sold me his 3GS at a steal.

    Anyways, I checked the boot rom of the phone, it is the old boot rom.... I am on version 3.1.3, pretty sure nothing has ever been done to the phone in terms of jailbreaking or unlocking.

    I am just looking just to get this baby unlocked for T-Mobile.

    Can anyone give me a little run through on the best route I can take at this moment in time? Greatly appreciate it!

    Use Spirit Jailbreak from Spirit to Jailbreak it.
    And then use UltraSn0w 0.93 from Cydia to unlock.

    Good luck Jen! And thanks for the help so far Simtech / drmias!



    How do I do a clean reset for 3.1.3 though? I clicked the button on Cydia that says 'make my life easier' or whatever... I want to do a clean sweep of my phone now because most of the previous owner's junk is still on here

    EDIT: Alright wiped the sand out of my ****** and restored through iTunes 9.1.1.12, but when verifying through Apple it said it failed to verify so it didn't restore due to iTunes: Restore error 3194

    ???

    Did you try that enough times? If yes, then download another version of iTunes and try again.
    Hopefully this helps.

    Many thanks for the link,

    I've had a look and I'm not sure if I'm experienced/confident enough to attempt it!

    I should probably wait for the new jailbreak for 3GS 3.1.3 which I understand is on its way.

    Any idea when it might become available?

    It's already out... spiritjb.com

    If you're on the OLD BOOTROM 3.1.3 and used Spirit, there is a tool released, Sn0wBreeze 1.6.2, make a custom version with it, and restore to it.
    Good luck.
