In theory, this could work. Please read.

    I had an idea last night, and it seems like it could work. If a 3GS with the new bootrom was already Jailbroken, but then had to be restored, before it was restored, you could use an updated version of Pwnage Tool that the Dev-Team would have to make. Now, what they would have to do, is make it so that way you could be Jailbroken on 3.1.3. Now we all know that Pwnage Tool preserves your baseband, but what if they could make it preserve the usb exploit? Then once we restore, obviously we'd boot into recovery mode, but then wouldn't we be able to boot up with BlackRa1n or RedSn0w? In theory this could work, and I hope that it does work if the Dev-Team takes this into consideration.

    3GSes with the new bootrom cannot be pwned and therefore cannot be restored to a custom firmware. The rest of your idea is therefore irrelevant.

    Not quite as easy as it sounds...

    I'm pretty sure that the baseband updates are basically a separate update in the IPSW and they just remove it. Preserving an exploit is something totally different. They don't actually have access to the source and have no control over that.

    If that were the case why wouldn't they just "preserve the baseband exploits" so you could update your baseband and still unlock?

    Oh, but you fail to distinguish between a time-out and a ban. pcs_are_junk is gone for good!

    Anyone happen to see the post(s) that got him banned?

    I guess it's possible that it was deleted, but it wouldn't surprise me if this was the culprit:

    Is this a reason to have a forum party ?? :rolleyes:

    I will give him one thing, however. His grammer was much better this week (just not the content of his posts). ;)
