    I tried to restore my 3Gs. It was jailbroken on 3.1.3. The restore failed. I tried using tiny umbrella and RecBoot and it still said i could only restore and upgrade, so i decided after trying that a bunch of times to just do the manual reset from within the settings on the phone. It was on the apple logo with the spinnging thing for like an hour, and now its just stuck on the apple logo. I put it into DFU and tried exiting DFU (like i did earlier) using recboot but now it just wont leave the apple logo. If anyone can help me i would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    If you dont have SHSH's saved locally or on cydias server all you can do is restore to 4.0.1

    Did you point iTunes towards Cydia's server?

    Ok, did you edit your hosts file to redirect to cydias server for the check before it lets you restore?
    Mac or windows?

    Mac. Here's what i do: its stuck on the apple logo, has been for hours, sometimes the spinning thing comes up, sometimes the screen resets, but either way it never leaves the apple logo, itunes wont recognize it unless i put it in DFU, so i put it in DFU, option click restore, select the 3.1.3 ispw and run tiny umbrella telling it to 'start TSS server' but i still get the error that i cant restore.

    Do you have a 3GS model currently on 3.1.3 and what is it JB with?
    You want to go up to 4.0 JB and unlocked or just 4.0 official.
    And yes, You can downgrade your iphone at any time to 3.1.3 since you have shsh's saved for that built.

    Yes, you can update officially to the latest 4.0.1 and then at any time go back down to 3.1.3 using your SHSH's you have on cydia to restore to that and then JB again with spirit.
    Just make sure you do have 3.1.3 saved:)

    I am in the exact same situation and I have windows. I am a complete noob when it comes to iPhones so if someone could help me get it working again that would be awesome.

    I was restoring it to sell it, so I don't mind if it gets updated and loses JB, or if it goes back to 3.1.3 its fine, just as long as it works.

    Any help is appreciated

    can't he do a custom 4.0? that way he can keep 4.0?

    I did that with my wifes iphone 3gs.

    I used pwnage tool 4.1 (the latest one-whatever that one is) to create the custom ipsw and now she is jailbroken/unlocked on 4.0.

    :D

    What are you trying to do? Restore it to the latest firmware?

    Yes you can only if it has the old bootrom though. Not 3GS models with the new one.
