    Okay, I have a 3gs, its jailbroken on 3.0.1 with redsn0w. AT&T is my carrier so im not worried about unlock. I just want to know how will the custom ipsw load onto the iphone without "verifying with apple" and will i need an internet connection during the restore? because tethering my iphone is the only way i have an internet connection.
    And can I shift+click update on the custom ipsw? or does it have to be a restore?
    Thank you for any help =]

    Thomas, No. You must use the internet thing. So best advise is to wait togo to town with your laptop or goto a friends with internet.

    theres no way a modified ipsw will get verified with apples servers.
    ill wait for an official word on how it works
