    Here is the deal, I want to downgrade my iPhone 3GS to 3.0 so I cN get free tehering since it doesn't work on 3.1.

    I want to know 2 things:

    How so I downgrade safely with the option to restore later ()

    Will I still be able to use MMS via a hack ()

    Is there a way to avoid the whole process, for example will a 3.1 tethering hack cone out in the future? ()

    Any feedback is appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Sorry, you were given the wrong info. Fuzzyband will not work on a 3GS. Besides that it has nothing to do with jailbreaking, just unlocking.

    As far as downgrading the firmware on a 3GS you can only do that if you have stored your SHSH on Cydia. If you don't know what I am talking about, that means you did not do this.

    I will assume your 3GS is at 3.1 since you mentioned downgrading to 3.0.1

    Apple quit signing the 3.0 and 3.0.1 IPSW's so you cannot select them in iTunes, therefore you cannot restore to them.

    Since 3.1 is the lowest firmware that is still signed, you cannot go any lower.

    Just buy PDANet from Cydia store and use that to tether. That is what most others are using. You must be jailbroken to get and use Cydia.

    MMS is possible on 3.0 thru 3.1.2, but since you are at 3.1 and cannot go lower, that should not be an issue.

    You can jailbreak your 3GS on 3.1, just get Pwnage Tool 3.1.4 and get a tutorial from iClarified.

    I really doubt this person has his SHSH on file.
