    im guessing you didn't save your SHSH with sauriks servers via Cydia. If this is the case you will not be able to restore to 3.1.2.

    This is not new information, you should have given this and other threads more attention before posting

    Let's recap...

    1. This isn't Apple's Customer Service

    2. Even it if was, you are apparently asking about procedures (jailbraking? unlocking?) that are not authorized or supported by Apple so you can't go to Apple Customer Service

    3. You are complaining because random people on the Internet aren't flocking to rescue you from bricking your iPhone

    Have I missed anything?

    Tell Apple to start paying us and maybe we'll care.

    Actually never mind we still wont.

    How about stop Beeing lazy and waiting for everyone to hold your hand and actually try a search. You are not the only one that ever asked that question.

    Where bunnies are welcome.
    :confused:I now have seen everything. :( Wow!

    I'm sorry my fellow colleagues could not assist you, but they were helping other customers. Please understand that although you may have to wait, you will get the same attentive service we provide to all our customers.

    OP, use iRecovery to get your phone out of the loop.

    BTW, I still haven't got a paycheck from Arn. :confused: Come to think of it, he never asked me to fill out a W-4 or ask for my address.:confused::confused::confused:

    If my assumption is right and if you have saved your signature on cydia, do the following.

    1. download 3.1.2 official firmware
    2. edit your hosts file c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts with the following:
    3. Put your phone in DFU mode. (connect to PC, power off, hold power/home 10 secs, then release power and keep the home till you get DFU)
    4. Finally in itunes, shift restore and select 3.1.2 firmware. If cydia has your keys you are ok and restore will go through.
    5. Jailbreak using Redsnow 0.9.2.

    Hope this helps.
