    Okay, so I really need some help/advice. I bought an iPhone 3gs and it was on 3.1.3 firmware. I'm on T-Mobile, so I got straight to jailbreaking it. I jailbroke it with Spirit and it was really fast and insanely easy. Then I got on Cydia and installed blackra1n to unlock it. It completed and said that the download was done but there was a popup saying that it was updating the data that didnt let me do anything. So I left it for a while, but then turned off the phone. When I turned it back on, it went to the apple logo then a white loading bar with the apple aurora background. It filled the loading bar completey, but still hadnt changed. So I left it for a while again. When I look back at it, it was on the same screenshot. So I turned it off and on again. But this time, it only went as far as the apple logo. I did this two more times with the same result. I tried to fix by putting in recovery mode. I plugged it into itunes but to restore it, i'd have to update it to 4.3.4. I know that i could jailbreak 4.3.4 with redsn0w or pwnagetool. But i'm afraid that it would change my baseband to 4.3.4 and I know that there is no unlock for that baseband. So now I dont know if i should let itunes update it and risk trying to unlock it or if i should downgrade it as soon as it updates. (but downgrading looks really complicated and im not sure if i can do that) Or maybe there's a way to fix it without updating it? HELP! - first post.

    Still having problems. I tried to save the 3.1.3 shsh blobs since i havent restored it yet. I downloaded tinyumbrella, but my device just wouldnt show up. So i downloaded Autoshsh. I went through all the steps and at the end it asked me to pick a file location so i put it in my documents. after i pressed save, two popups showed. One saying that i was done and that it should be saved in my location and saved on cydia. and onether from java saying that an error occured and that it wasnt able to open it. So i did this twice more to the same result. I dont know if the shsh blobs are really saved and if its okay to restore it because i can downgrade it with my "save" shsh blobs. I just downloaded ifaith. I dont know what my next move should be? - second post.

    did everything there was to do on ifaith.

    i keep trying to restore to the original 3.1.3 with itunes using and "signed" ipsw from ifaith. The iphone 3gs is in constant black screen(pwned DFU mode) and the apple logo/loading bar pops up when apple is "verifying". When the restore is complete, it tells me to leave it plugged in and that it should be restarting now. There's a little 10 second countdown then the pop goes away and im back where I started, itunes recognizes an iphone in "recovery mode". -_____- HELP. - third post.

    Now if ANYONE has any advice or tips or things they think i should do, they would all be GREATLY appreciated.

    a couple of thing Blacksn0w is the unlock blackra1n is another jailbrerak. you can't save blobs after apple stops signing them. which for 3.1.3 was ages ago. does Tiny umbrella mention you have blobs for 3.1.3? you can try to kick it out of recovery with Ifaith or tiny umbrella which I prefer. and yes stay away from 4.3.4 or use pwnage tools or Sn0wbreeze to preserve the baseband.

    Okay. I cant take it out of recovery with ifaith, it just puts it in the "pwned dfu" mode. I cant use/or dont know HOW to use sn0wbreze because it wont recognize the ipsw i have have. I've downloaded about five versions of the 3.1.3 ipsw and it still didnt work. Do you have any ideas on what i should do now?

    Ifaith is a utility to extract blobs of the firmware the device is running on irrespective of apple signs it or not. U can't kick device of out of recovery using it ..



    @steph
    Put the ifaith away. After you restore with the signed ipsw if it lands you on recovery mode then use tinyumbrella to kick it out of recovery.

    It wouldnt restore with the ispw. So i tried to cook a new one with sn0wbreeze. Still didnt let me restore. I kept getting error 1600. So i downloaded ireb, i heard it could fix this error. It didnt, it did absolutely

    Use the signed ipsw. Put the phone in pwned dfu mode and then restore.
