    Hi I have a 3Gs running 4.1 and jailbroken with jailbreakme. It seems to be crashing a few times and also I've noticed that since the boot screen with the "stuck" pixels, i've had this one pixel that is barely visible but there and noticeable on light backgrounds only. The pixel is just a bit lighter than all the other. Like i said it is barely visible but the fact that I know it is there bothers me.

    So I want to try to jailbreak through pwnagetool. I have windows vista though so I'm assuming there is a windows version? I heard people don't use sn0wbreeze just from reading this forum. What should I do?

    I also have my SHSHs on file through Cydia and have used tinyumbrella to store my SHSH to my computer. Just wondering what version I should restore to and basically is it worth it to go through all this trouble.

    Thanks

    To use pwnagetool for 3GS, you will have old bootrom and downgrade to official 3.1.2 OS, use pwnagetool to create custom OS 4.0 or below, and then, restore through iTunes with that file.

    3.1.2 i have stored. I believe I have the old bootrom though as my seriel number is ***29******. Can anyone confirm this?

    By any chance is there a tutorial for this? I've never used pwnagetool and can anyone confirm it works for windows? thanks

    Why not restore to 4.0.1 and jb with jailbreakme to see if it fixes the bugs.
    The jb works fine with everyone.

    isn't it better to jailbreak through pwnage over jailbreakme?
    http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=986890
    like when 4.0 first came out wasnt there a jailbreak right away for people who pwn'd their phones? while others had to wait for jailbreakme to come out?

    Believe, week 29 old bottom. Were you ever on 3.1.2 JB? If yes, could you restart the phone without needing a computer (tethered)? If you could, you definitley have the old bootrom.

    Pwnagetool only works on Mac. Instead, google for one people already made with pwnagetool. Look for 3GS custom firmware 3.1.2. Or, use Redsn0w on the official 3.1.2 firmware. Afterward, continue to use custom firmware to stay pwned = accept unsigned code.

    No you have to be pwned on 3.1.2 to restore the custom 4.0 ipsw..

    The main reason to stay on the train is to preserve the baseband which you've already updated but also allows for future non-userland jailbreaks.

    You are correct. Then, OP should use Redsn0w at official 3.1.2, and then, restore with 3.1.3 - 4.0 custom firmware (google).

    Better?
    It accomplishes the same thru a different exploit.

    Because once your on the boot exploit train it's no problem upgrading to future custom firmwares where otherwise you will have to wait and hope they find another userland exploit? One Apple is capable of fixing while the other they're not.

    It really depends on what the dev team does and how future iOS versions work with older models. Pwnage is long term solution but who keeps their iPhone that long before upgrading, right? Here's a little more information about it.

    I agree but those with a 3GS pawnage ipsw that didn't upgrade are very few. I'm sure they got more exploits saved. Not sure if they will use userland or deeper exploits.

    I wouldn't.

    In essence, the author of Snowbreeze takes Pwnagetool and makes it work on Windows. It doesn't always work correctly and custom firmware created through Snowbreeze could cause problems.

    Good to know, thanks. Based on this I talked a friend with a Mac to run pwnage to create me a 3.1.3 IPSW instead of using Sn0wbreeze.
