    Hi,

    The stupid (noob) story of me. (you can pass this stupid story)

    Yesterday i bought a iphone 3gs with the 3.1.2 firmware. I tried to jailbreak it but something went wrong and it didn't restart after jailbrake. It was powered off. I read some articles and i understand that it was in restore mode. So i had to restore it it make it working. Then i restored it from itunes. Now IT is 3.1.3...
    I read lots of things.
    Now i know that it is impossible to jailbreak 3.1.3.

    The point.
    Now this is the 3rd day. And i want to return my iphone to the shop and get a new one or return my money. On the paper it says that if there is something wrong with the phone you can return it in 8 days.

    The problem.
    The problem is i dont know how to act to those guys in the shop to return the iphone. Because officially i cant say that i cant jailbreak this 3.1.3 version hahaha.

    The possible acts :))) (hacking the phone shop haha)
    - "i am not happy with iphone ???? give my money back mtf"
    - "i want the white one now haha. please give me the white one."
    - First i will break a pin inside the usb cable tip (i can buy a new one...). Then i will say that there is a problem with the usb cable and i want a new 3gs without a defact.

    If you have any suggestions or a good story about this situation please help me. Now i will wait for 5 days to build a good scenario to give my phone back.

    Any of the first two seem acceptable to me.

    I'm not sure where you are located, but in the US we have 30 days to return it, no reason needed.

    I returned a 3Gs because I was completely unimpressed with it. I told them it was signal problems and they were fine with that. I'm in the UK though (and I did actually have some less than excellent signal experiences)

    You may well get another 3GS with 3.1.3 though. I'd probably just wait and see if someone works out a way to jailbreak the 3.1.3 rather than do a return.

    The fact is i am a student in Netherlands and i dont really know how they respond to situations like this. But i bought it from TMOBILE. And on the paper they give me it says: "ruilen met bon in originele verpakking binnen 8 dagen bij defect" as google translate says it means : if there is a defect you can return it in 8 days.

    So my plan is to try different scenarios on different shops here...
    But i think they will return it because it is tmobile and they should be using the same kind of policies like UK. I will report everything to the forum. It will be a good troubleshooting for the Netherlands i think.

    Waiting 3.1.3 jailbreak is really suspicious because dev-team is very negative with this firmware update but they are working on it... You can control it from http://blog.iphone-dev.org/.

    You probably had a tethered jb so instead of a restore you should have ran blackrain again to boot up the iPhone.

    Since forever, or when they released 3.1.3. If he was on a pwned 3.1.2, it is possible to shift+restore to a pwned 3.1.3 (I'm on one, too).

    If it is a 3GS on a stock 3.1.3, it is currently unjailbreakable. If it is a 3G, it is able to be downgraded then jailbroken

    Is it a 3GS or 3G model?
    You cant JB a 3GS on stock 3.1.3
    You have to JB it on 3.1.2 and then update to custom JB 3.1.3 firmware.
