Thread: ultran00b trying to upgrade to iOS 4

  1. #21
    Ask Annie to review this thread if you want, my theory on why you are jailbroken on Spirit:

    1. Blackrain is not possible (3.1.3 with stock baseband)
    2. Jailbreak me would have a longer boot (spinning circle comes up)

    Only leaves spirit for 3.1.3. You are old bootrom, so spirit2pwn and custom firmware should work.

    Annie???

    Weston is probably right. If you didn't get a "Successfully Saved" result from Firmware Umbrella doing what I instructed then your best option is to stay on 3.1.3 for now.

    What am I risking if I download spirit2pwn

  5. #24
    You risk bricking your phone such that you need to restore and have to go to 4.1

    You need to weigh up the likelihood of that. You could have a wait before getting an unlock back.
    However, from what I know, it's got to be spirit jailbroken. Ask yeow, Annie and the others for a second opinion.

    Definitely agree with you Westonben. I'll have a more detailed response later lol, my MMi app is being stupid.

    OP's SHSHs were unable to be pulled into TU. I requested logs and confirmed it. The only option is to wait for the new 4.1 JB. I firmly agree that the 3.1.3 jb was probably Spirit.

    Jailbreak iPhone 3GS on iOS 4.1 with PwnageTool [How to Guide] | Redmond Pie

    i saw on here that jailbreak on 4.1 is possible... the only thing that i'm hung up on is downloading spirit2pwn (if you guys really think its spirit then i'll download it)

    also i dont have an original att sim... but i do have a cingular sim (idk if that works or not... or if this information is even relevant LOL)... im currently on tmobile right now, but im pretty sure i can find someone with att...

    The it should be fine. Just a word of warning, I have seen some people's phones getting bricked by Spirit2pwn. Not all but some. Be careful...

    I'm not trying to scare you but yeah, it bricked a couple people's phones. Got it stuck in recovery mode and never got it back out.

    I mean some people have had success with it and a couple got bricked, and I don't know if it is user error or what you know? But if it were my phone, I'd be terrified and I don't mess with things that the dev team didn't develop.

    Sn0wbreeze does the same things as PwnageTool. You'll still need spirit2pwn...

    I've done 7 or 8 phones with spirit2pwn now. It works, and it'll work for you. You won't look back.

    Knew it would work! Nice one.

    I've not heard of anyone bricking their phone using spirit2pwn except when used for an illegible handset.

    Lol yeah it usually doesn't but I'm guessing it's user error. Some people just mess it up somehow and brick the phone

    -.- if done correctly I'm sure no problems arise.

    I personally would stick with what you have until the unlock and jailbreak for 4.1 comes out. 4.0 for 3g and 3gs fail epically and i don't think you'll be happy with 4.0

    If the OP has old bootrom, can't he just downgrade to 3.xx and then use redsn0w or sn0wbreeze for 4.xx?

    he's already on 3.1.3. Why would you go for 4.0 when it sucks and the unlock/jailbreak for 4.1 is looking good right now
