    Apologies if this has been asked before, I did a quick search but only found contradicting answers.

    I'm currently running 3.1.3 on a spirit jailbroke 3GS and run windows.

    What's the best/easiest way to get the iOS4 upgrade and jailbreak? I'd much rather start from a clean install if possible and then jailbreak.

    Does spirit work for iOS4 or is there a better alternative.

    Many thanks for any help :)

    There is currently no way to jailbreak a new-bootrom 3GS on 4.0.

    I should have mentioned, mine is the old bootrom. :)

    I also have my blobs with Cydia if that's relevant?

    You can downgrade to 3.x, jailbreak with Redsn0w, then upgrade with a custom firmware made with PwnageTool.

    Note: PT has not yet been officially updated for 4.0, but there are instructions for modifying it to work with the 4.0 GM candidate.

    What's your baseband? I'm guessing you upgraded to 05.13.04.

    If it was a brand new 3GS, you could not possibly have followed the procedure I outlined. New 3GS phones do not have the old bootrom required. I don't think you know what you're talking about...

    Agreed, that poster is always posting about a problem with his iPhone concerning this or that.

    You're judging him for judging.

    The only one confused here is you.

    Nobody here was talking about upgrading to 4.0. We were all talking about jailbreaking. You made your post in a thread about jailbreaking iOS 4 and in response to my detailed post on how to jailbreak 4.0, and in it you said "fyi...i did this with my 3GS...." How could not mean that you jailbroke your phone on 4.0? What antecedent did you intend "this" to have?

    If all you meant to say was that you upgraded your phone to 4.0 official and couldn't get a signal after downgrading, then that is completely irrelevant to this thread!

    I wasn't judging, just stating fact based on your posts.

    Some of us stay jailbroken for months and months even thru firmware upgrades (3GS from JB 3.1.2 to JB iOS 4) and never need to post "help me" posts.

    Others have a new dilemma every week, can't stay jailbroken, constant restores, etc.

    It is what it is.

    my advice is for you both to read....
    Latinist has already stated that PT has not been updated for 3Gs yet but can be modified to work with the 4.0 GM... all the way back in post 4.
    you have no other options.

    i made with pwnage tool before and with pwnage tool now. anyway if u have 3.1.2 with blackrain u can always put 3.1.2 with pwnage and after 4.0 with pwnage anyway i cannot understand why u cannot use pwnage if u used blackrain.... i read that just people that used spirit cannot use pwnage... anyway try to post a question in the comment to the post of pwnage 4.0.1 of the blog of devteam.... for sure they will answer u.... anyway for the first time i had a lot of problem to put in dfu mode and after it wasn't working the restore with itunes so i connected my iphone to the computer i opened itunes i old home+sleep until the device shutted down and after i released just the sleep button until the screen connect to itunes appeared on the phone and after that everything worked

    Restore

    Problem is that I have already downloaded 4.0, so if I try to restore in iTunes it will probably upgrade to 4.0.. Am I right?

    yes you should put off the 4.0 firmware from /Users/yourname/Library/iTunes/iPhone Software Updates, after make a custom firmware with pwnage tool from a 3.1.2 original firmware and after from itunes put the custom 3.1.2 firmware... anyway is better that u ask from devteam blog for sure they know exactly the answer to your question,....

    Pwnage tool worked for me.
    I was on 3.1.3 3GS with old bootrom jailbroken with spirit.
    I Downgraded to 3.1.2 using this guide.
    I Jailbroke 3.1.2 using Blackra1n.
    Created a custom firmware with pwnage tool, it would not update the phone in DFU mode but it worked in restore mode.
    I would say hold off on updating because a lot of jailbroken apps have not been update and crash the phone or just don't work at all.
