    I just bought a new iPhone 3GS 32GB with 3.1.2 installed on saturday. I not only jailbreaked it but also installed cydia. Then my brother decided to put another sim in the iPhone and now when I put my own sim in there (three) the iphone indicates that I have to plug it to the computer for itunes. iTunes then states that the iPhone is in recovery mode and thus,doesn't show the Name, Size or firmware level and asks for a restore + update to 3.1.3.

    As I never installed 3.1.3, is there any possibility of me getting my previous firmware back and running again; so I can indeed Jailbreak it? ( I have no need for unlocking at the moment ).

    Thankyou for all your contribution.

    Plug it in to your computer and run blackra1n on it again; sounds like it is a tethered jailbreak.

    If that doesn't work you should have some more options; did you back up your SHSH's to Cydia?

    Update.
    As much as I would love to say that blackra1n or redsn0w worked.
    ...They both didn't.

    Blackra1n goes through the whole process, but the iPhone doesn't self reboot.
    So if you manually try and do it; it goes back to the 'Insert into Itunes screen'.
    So theres a fail there.

    And redsn0w gets to the stage where it dispays 'Activating' on the iPhone and goes no further.

    Both return to the 'Insert into Itunes screen'.

    There is no way I am updating to 3.13 so hopefully I can get this solved so I can use my phone again.

    Any ideas/tricks or advice on it or something I may be doing wrong.

    And something I forgot to add is; it's a iPhone with a new bootloader, so could that be something?

    Thanks =]

    Alrighty.
    Absolutely awesome help guys.
    So this is it so far.
    I took the Blackra1n option and these steps.

    1) Insert iPhone into Computer. 'Please insert into Itunes' screen comes up.
    2) Initiate blackra1n
    3) Let it run.
    4) The 'Enjoy your jailbroken iPhone' screen, with the 'for tethered, run again to boot'
    I have tried rebooting it by a) turning it off and on from the power button
    or holding down both home and power buttons.
    They both result in blackra1n running again.
    ( I have not removed the iPhone from the computer.
    And when it says, your iPhone is now jailbroken,
    the blackra1n screen, with the Painting of the guy and various iPhones shows up on the iPhone screen.

    Where from here?
