    1) What is the best way t JB?

    2) Am I able to get JB on IOS4?

    I just exchanged my other 3GS with apple today and this iPhone is on 3.1.3 with old bootrom.


    What are my options?

    I have tmobile by the way:D

    If you are absolutely sure you have an old bootrom jb with spirit, then follow these instructions to get a jb/unlocked iOS4

    If op never JB this device nefore there is no reason to go near spirit if he wants to jailbreak 4.0 as long as he has the old bootrom if he has the new one he is sol tight now on 4.0

    I'm not on 4.0. I just got a replacement from apple iphone 3gs that is on 3.1.3. Best way to go about jb and unlocking so I can use on 3.1.3? Or if I can, jb and unlock on 4.0. It has the old bootrom btw

    my 4th and 5th numbers are 25 and my model # starts with MB

    All you can do now is JB it on 3.1.3 with spirit and unlock with ultrasnow.
    And just wait till a JB for 4.0 is released.

    if you want to keep 3.1.3 use spirit

    if 4.0 go with PwnageTool 4.01 Mac or Sn0wbreeze PC but if you are going too 4.0 stay away from Spirit! this is only if you have the old bootrom & MB is no indicator of bootrom that's a myth or BS! only way to know is in DFU mode http://www.redmondpie.com/how-to-check-iphone-3gs-bootrom-iboot-version/

    Well, I had 4.0 on my last 3gs but couldn't use it since I have tmobile. Since I swapped out the old 3gs for a new with 3.1.3.....I wanted to stick with 4.0 but If I can't, I'll settle for 3.1.3 until jb comes out for 4.0

    He has to be already JB (pwned) with either redsnow,pwnage or blackrain to update to custom JB 4.0 IPSW in order to unlock for tmobile.
    He cannot do that with stock 3.1.3 or 3.1.3 JB with spirit though.

    Thats your only option now.

    sorry I thought he was clean because he said he exchanged it. I thought he hadn't JB the one he exchanged. Applejuiced is correct once again :p

    I keep hearing about "stay away from spirit." What's the problem when using spirit?

    Actually couldn't he just follow the guide oren1 just mentioned (using spirit2pwn) to get his device to custom JB 4.0, then unlock his phone using ultrasn0w? Isn't that what he wanted to accomplish all along?

    Assuming, of course, he has the old bootrom.

    What is the 3rd digit of your serial number?

    In the OP's case

    Spirit to JB 3.1.3
    SHSH in Cydia
    Use spirit2pwn in Cydia to fix the Spirit JB
    Download stock iOS4 (from iClarified or other reliable sources)
    Use Pwnage Tool 4.0.1 to upgrade to custom ipsw
    Use Ultrasn0w to unlock

    DONE!

    I just did this :D

    1. jailbreak 3.1.3 with spirit using itunes 9.1
    2. Use cydia or tinyumbrella to save your SHSH hashes
    3. Wait till the cydia program says that your shsh is on file for 3.1.3
    4. use sprit2pwn on your phone
    5. Restore a pwned ios4 image in dfu mode, not recovery

    This Spirit2pwn thing is new, so not very many know of it or trust it.

    Many are reporting it does work, however.



    Edit: This was just Tweeted

    iH8sn0w WARNING : New Bootrom users MUST NOT install Spirit2Pwn. It flashes the NOR for old bootroms! You will go into a dfu loop.

    I used the spirit2pwn thing before it was a simple Cydia download and it worked perfectly - I assume the cydia download works but can't vouch for it personally, but the spirit2pwn hack itself works if you do it manually, see http://msftguy.blogspot.com/2010/06/old-bootrom-spirit-40-jb.html

    Can't be done for 3.1.3 any longer. Only the current OS hashes can be saved.

    Can a 3gs 3.1.3 jb with spirit (old bootrom) be upgraded to jb 4.0?

    I just downloaded a cooked 4.0 ipsw and did an option + restore in itunes, but got the 1604 error.

    is the problem that the phone was previously jb with spirit?

    EDIT: and now my 3gs is stuck on the connect to itunes screen. when i do that, its telling me i have to update to 4.0 and restore. maybe its bc the sim in the 3gs isnt active (ive since upgraded to ip4).

    Ok, another update.

    I got the phone out of the connect to itunes screen by running blackrain.

    Then I realized that the phone is actually jailbroken with blackrain, not spirit.

    But for some reason, I still cant upgrade to 4.0. I used pwnage tool 4.01 to create a custom ipsw of 4.0, but when I try to restore the phone to it in itunes, it gets stuck on 'preparing iphone for restore' and after about 5 minutes, i get the error message 'iphone could not be restored - unknown error (1604).'

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Again, this is a 3gs on 3.1.3 with old bootrom.
