    What are you trying to do, what iphone model etc...
    You want to JB or also unlock.
    If you update to official 4.1 you will lose your unlock.

    thanks for coming to my rescue...
    I have a 3gs with 3.1.2 baseband 5.11.07. JB using Blackra1n and blacksn0w unlock.

    THis morning ended up running Spirit on the phone and since then my phone has been going through the infinite loop of rebooting, Blackra1n doesnt work.

    Also, restore isnt helping anymore :( its now picking a 4.1

    I definitely need my JB and unlock:(

    You should have never ran Spirit over BlackRa1n (bad idea). Is your iPhone still in DFU mode? Do you know if you ever clicked "make my life easier" in Cydia to save the shsh files? You may be able to save your iPhone.

    Did u update to 4.1 or not? If u did I lost your unlock and have to wait for a new one for the updated firmware.

    What u can do is create a custom 4.1 Ipsw with Pwnage tool and then use Pwnage to enter dfu mode and restore to the jb 4.1 while saving your unlockable baseband.
    Then open Cydia and install ultrasnow to unlock.

    Either try to kick it out of recovery or maybe activate it.

    finally after hours of research and some help from u guys, i managed to get myself out of this mess...

    I had to edit the hosts file to restore 3.1.2 which took away the error message (not eligible)

    At the end i got back to Blackra1n, and in business now...

    I must say i would have so loved to have my untethered but as far as my phone works i am a happy man.. thank you everyone
