    According to p0sixninja's twitter: "if you have your file your good, were all just trying to make it easier for everyone." So if you have your ECID and have already ran it through purplera1n, make sure that file is saved somewhere and you'll be good to go.

    This may sound crazy, but I am curious about putting my ECID into purplerain, is that a safe thing to be giving out?? Just wish we could somehow do this locally instead of inputting the ECID into a site.

    Have you read the blog.

    You can now do that and store it on your local computer only !!

    Fair enough, from what I have read purplera1n is essentially the same process, but instead of trying to catch the temp files, it contacts the apple servers and "tricks" it into giving it a signed certificate. I guess either way your good to go.

    I have gotten by IBSS and my IBEC. Do i need to get the ECID. I read someplaces that if you got your ECID your all set but if you havent the IBSS and IBEC is another option.

    I'm wondering the same thing?

    I also have my IBSS AND IBEC, is that all i need?

    Is the ECID just needed to get the IBISS without restoring your phone?

    I was wondering the same exact thing after reading the dev teams post. I have the ecid, which I ran through purple rain, so do i have to do the new thing also?

    I did the modmyi method last night on hubbie's phone. It was the first time I actually got the darned iBSS. I also previously did Purple on both our phones.

    Now I'm trying to do the iClarified instruct for my phone and can't even download the iPhone2,1_3 ipsw properly. It shows as a folder. WTH am I doing wrong? I've played around with this stuff for 2 years and can't get past this one thing? Any ideas?

    I might go back to Modmyi's method but I fear without having the 3.0 ipsw - at any minute I might get 3.1 since I can't 'option - restore'. ???

    Are you using Safari? I had the exactly same problem. I tried with Firefox and it worked perfectly. Somehow Safari puts .zip extension to the file, don't know why.

    Are these iBEC and iBSS files specific to each phone like with the ECID? Since like a moron I already updated to 3.1 can I take these files off of a co-workers 3GS with 3.0? Also, will they work on my phone once I need to jailbreak?

    I already did the purplera1nyday file BTW...

    I really should've thought of that before. I blame HOURS at this and going to bed at 3am. :)

    Thank you! I have the right file now.

    you can still do it with safari easy... all you have to do is .."left click" get info

    and just remove the .zip from the ipsw and it will turn into the ipsw .. pretty easy.. no need for firefox.. oh this method is on a mac.

    Nope, ECID's are specific to each phone, hence why you need to do it on your device. :)

    Unfortunately the dev team has said to stay away from 3.1 for fear that it cannot be jailbroken. I think since you already updated, you may be SOL...
