Okay here is the Problem. Got a 3GS 32gb 3.1.2 phone that I purchased and performed a master reset. It was unlocked and jailbroken (old iboot xx936xxx) with blackra1n. I reset it in settings to erase the old data on it. Stooopid mistake! After I reset it it would not boot. So I attempted [*]BlackRa1n: Would not boot the phone, would freeze on Geohotz image, tried this 10 times. Redsn0w. Started to load it with the 3.1.2 firmware.... loaded fine but freezes on the last step! Authenticating so does not complete. tried this 10 times, always fails Saurik Activation to degrade firmware I do not have the SHSH file on my computer or on Sauriks server. Itunes shift restore Cant get this to work because Itunes stopped signing 3.1.2! Snowbreeze and IREB and Umbrella Tried IREB but will not unloop the iphone.. Umbrella does not give me the shsh file as it was never saved... Have not tried sn0wbreeze yet as I dont think it will help either. In summary.. 3gs old iboot that will not boot. When it runs redsn0w its stop at this line of code: Couldn't stat("/etc/mach_init.d"): No such file or directory com.apple.CommCenter: Already loaded I will paypal the first person 20 dollars that will give me a work around. Of course this does not include upgrading the iphone to 3.1.3 in itunes. I want to preserve my baseboard and not go to 3.1.3. Also I do not have my shsh file so I cant downgrade to a lower version as apple refuses to sign them electronically. I also tried this on 3 computer (dont have an apple available to use Pwnage) on many usb cables and multiple versions of iTunes.. so its not my hardware. So anyone smart enough to provide a solution!! WIll also post on modmyi.com... 1st solution on these forum wins.
