    I recently got a 3gs replacement from Apple, and it is on firmware 3.1.2 and was from the factory. It does have an upgraded bootrom but so did the device I had replaced. However now Blackra1n does not work and it just hangs at the restore logo waiting to connect. Any ideas?

    Well, the last 3gs I had was made in the 47th week of 2009, so yeah wouldn't it? It was tethered. And this new one was made in the 50th week.

    I agree with J-Phone. Honestly I don't like blackra1n. Im in the same boat as you, 3gs new boot rom, and blackra1n never worked very well for me. However I used redsn0w and I haven't had any problems.

    Nope, 3.1.3 is not jailbrakeable on any new device (3GS, iPod touch 3g, or late 2g).

    The most is a tethered jailbreak on 3.1.2 for newer bootrom of devices listed above (Only the newer bootrom of the 3GS).

    And the only chance you have is if they release a new jailbreak and your SHSH is Hashed.

    Sorry man
