    Hi, praying someone can help me??, I inherited an Iphone 3GS IOS 4.3 which I unlocked and jailbroke and Cydia downgraded me to 4.1 so I could no longer sync with iTunes anymore. Couldn't upgrade as the upgrade would brick the BB my phone.

    I tried iMacsoft to Iphone to Mac Transfer app and everything was great. I could sync music, photos, SMS, contacts etc. As I was batch syncing though, iTunes cropped up and I had to quit both. Now, there is NO CONTENT on my iphone although all the songs are still in my browser? I can export a song to my computer though and sync all other apps (on the above 3rd party app) but not music and video?

    I tried downloading music from the Itunes store and voila, they came up as purchased music but nothing else? I've dragged new songs over and although they import into the browser, they don't show up on the phone at all?

    I've worked hard for 1 week trying to rectify this and no solution? Are they ghost files or are they really on my phone? Am I missing some sync file somewhere?

    I miss my music. Can anyone help me please?
    Thanks in advance!

    As a last ditch effort, you could probably create a custom iOS 4 ipsw with no baseband upgrade

    Put iphone 4 into PWNed DFU mode and restore using that custom firmware file

    Thanks!
    I was told by three stores that firmware is no longer available anywhere? Noone can reinstall that IOS on my phone anymore.

    Any idea why the music won't sync anymore?

    Thanks!

    You need to use special programs like iFaith or redsn0w to put your device into PWNed DFU mode and you can restore to iOS 4.x

    You will probably need to dump your SHSH blobs before making the custom ipsw with stitched SHSH blobs and no baseband upgrade

    It can be a complicated process for those with no experience in jailbrea king

    No clue why the music won't sync anymore. iTunes will never downgrade your iOS version (unless you did some extra process to do so) so really don't know how you went from 4.3 to 4.1
