    Do I have to dowgrade to 3.1.2 to install iDroid and openiboot? I have an iphone 3g jailbroken with redsn0w. The tutorial says it must be on 3.1.2 but since there already is a bootroom exploit for the 3g I'm not realy sure. Plus I don't want to dowgrade because afterthat I have to put everything back on my phone.

    What are you talking about? You save your SHSH to downgrade. That's the only reason people save them. What you just said made no sense.

    Plus he's on a 3G, which means he doesn't even need to save his SHSH blob to downgrade.

    @OP: Yes, you need to downgrade to 3.1.2.

    Actually, some people have said it works on 3.1.3. You can't use spirit to jailbreak though, since it's not an iBoot exploit.

    Oh, okay, so it works fine on 3.1.3 if you jailbreak with anything but spirit.

    I jailbroke with Redsn0w 0.9.4 too. So basicaly I should just follw the whole guide on installing iDroid and openiboot and ignore when it says 3.1.2. Thanks guys this made my life a whole lot easier.
