    i have a 3gs mc model oldboot rom on 5.13.04 on os4 that i jailbroke. it took 2 days and alot of forums reading to do it. but in the end it was a stroke of luck that got me thru. first i downgraded from my os4 to 3.1.2 using redsnow but the luck part was i hit vebroose boot or something like that were it states install cydia this bypassed the error 1600 that i was getting all the time. it load cydia but cydia didnt not work so next i use blackra1n(adding it itune core file) to jailbreak the phone then i used snowbreeze custom restore to load os4 after that you will have to turn off your phone cause it might get the cannot load itune error but just keep turning it off and on til it reset then when it does unlock with ultrasnow. like i stated i am a newbie who got lucky but I did unlock my 3gs mc 137ll 5.13.04 firmware old bootrom inphone along using alot of forums guide til i got it right

    Hmm. Is there another program to check it before I JB my 3GS?

    So far, Ive read that I should Pwnagetool 4.0.1, and download the ultrasnow off cydia on the repo.

    Since you need to be spoonfed...

    Currently jailbroken (Spirit doesn't count), old bootrom, make or get a custom restore 4.0 IPSW

    This is available on iClarified in a tutorial.

    Ok, Ive read through all dev team, and iclarified. I followed all the steps, and now I keep getting a "1604" on itunes. It doesnt finish it. I made the expert mode on pwnagetool 4.0.1 . Im stuck now. I cant figure it now. Lame.

    Im def on old bootrom, so it should work.

    Was the phone already JB before trying to restore with pwnagetool custom OS 4.0 file?

    the 3GS was JB'd on pwnagetool last year. Seems like part of the JB is still stuck in it. My Carrier Logo on the top is still there.


    Also, I was using pwnagetool for 4.0.1 for iOS4 to make the custom IPSW.

    Maybe I should try to restore my old backup before when I completely removed the JB and made it completely stock.

    Don't go stock (official firmware). Phone has to be JB (not with Spirit) with iOS 3.13 or earlier to use pwnagetool custom iOS4 firmware.

    Hmm. Do you have a link with that? Ive read that the idea a site said to WITHOUT using the recovery mode after done packing the custom IPSW.

    Ive tried that way too, and i keep getting 1604.

    just a tip do some research before you JB it's really not that hard. but it does take some reading. but compared to other things jb is nothing! took me a few hours reading to feel comfortable jb.

    Im definitely comfortable for jb on my old 3Gs and my 2G, and my 3GS last year before on 3.1.1. I always used pwnagetool, and it was realllly easy. I never had any problems. Ive always used ultrasnow to unlock my 3G.

    This only problem getting stuck on 1604 on itunes when restoring with my custom IPSW.

    Ive tried everything with that. Ive been reading online for hours to fix this part. Its making me feel crazy now.

    Kinda depends what your situation is specifically, but see if this helps you out:

    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=960676

    I just wrote this about a JB I did on a 3GS (old bootrom) which only had 3.1.3 blobs on file, and therefore could only be jailbroken using Spirit.

    This explains how to bootstrap from 3.1.3 with Spirit-JB up to a fully jailbroken iOS4 using Pwnagetool (yes it is possible thanks to spirit2pwn).

    Thanks for all the help guys. I gave up on it. I'm just going to sell it stock without unlocked. Ohwell. Normally. I've never had a problem like this so difficult. Dang.
