I had a hairline crack on my phone and got it replaced and went ahead and did the following. 1. Checked the firmware 3.1.2 (which is good) 2. Redsn0w 0.9.2, During jailbreak, it asked if I have the newer version of week 45 and higher and I clicked yes. 3. After jailbreak, it rebooted and I got the itunes restore screen. 4. I ran blackra1n to continue tethered boot. 5. Ran Cydia and installed some apps. One of which asked for reboot. Went ahead and expected to rerun blackra1n as i expected a tethered phone and to my surprise, the boot went through without the itunes restore icon. I believe I must have got lucky once again with a new phone. Purpose of this thread is to inform others that there is still the old iboots out there.
