    Hey everyone, my friends iphone 3gs was just recently jailbroken so then he installed winterboard which required a restart and after that you know how it goes. Tethered -> rejailbreaking -> solved but no this case blackra1n wouldnt boot. After running blackra1n and everything shows normally like geo's face and all then it just shuts off. Other problems are its stuck in 3.1.2 connect to itunes screen and when i tried to shift restore it wouldnt let me do 3.1.2 because the device is not eligible. Pretty sure that means they dont want me to use that firmware. So the choices im left with now is restoring to 3.1.3 which means im screwed if i do so. What can i do?

    I've tried redsn0w and it would stay at downloading jailbreaking data and when it finishes it shuts off the iphone just like blackra1n and doesnt reboot it like it should

    new information. figured out that the iphone is a newer model which means new bootrom so right now im trying to run redsn0w to get it out of the recovery loop since blackra1n doesnt work. Any other ideas to get the iphone to boot properly?
