    Hi all,

    My iPhone has been very slow these lasts days. I tried to reboot and etc, but it still very slow. I was thinking in reinstall 3.1.2 and re-jailbreak it.

    I found a 3.1.2 IPSW file iPhone2,1_3.1.2_7D11_Restore. When I try to restore it. After the check against apple servers, I got the following message "The Iphone could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build. "

    What's wrong ? Is this the wrong file ? If so, where can I get the right file ?

    My iPhone is a 3GS
    Baseband 05.11.07
    Bootloder 6.4
    Model MC133
    Jailbreaked with Blackra1n

    I understood that there is not advantage or possibility to go to 3.1.3 at the moment, so I'm not considering it.

    You might have to. The 3Gs' have to have their FW signed by apple, meaning apple will check to see you are installing the latest FW.
    If you had the foresight to let Saurik store your phones SHSH through Cydia you can downgrade to 3.1.2.
    Google, and more importantly this forum, has ALOT of hits on this subject, you should have searched before posting.

    Saurik's server can't do anything for you unless you have your SHSH saved on it. Have you previously been jailbroken? If so, did you save yoru SHSH in Cydia?
