    Hey everyone, im wondering what the deal is with the iphone 3gs's restores.. i know that they get verified through apple and now that 3.0 has been disallowed we cannot restore to 3.0 without faking apples verification. BUT it will accept 3.1 restores, so my question is will custom 3.1 firmwares (without the baseband update) be accepted somehow or are we waiting for a tool utilizing the purplera1n/iBEC/IBSS files?
    Im eagerly awaiting some solution as im stuck with half firmware atm with no way to restore to 3.0 and since i need an unlick i cant go to 3.1!

    thanks in advance,

    The greenpois0n jailbreak will supposedly be able to do the jailbreaking without a OS restore or even DFU mode. Update to 3.1 normally and then jailbreak... its that simple. But you have to wait for the release of greenposi0n

    you could just uninstall iTunes 9, install iTunes 8.2 or .3(idk), jailbreak ur iPod or iPhone. then install iTunes 9 and sync

    cheers for that info beefstrudel. only problem is that its possible there will be no unlock for the new 3.1 firmware as the baseband is updated too... so i cannot risk updating to 3.1 because even if i can jailbreak, if i cant unlock my iPhone it becomes pretty much an ipod.

    melo i cannot do anything with the iphone until it has some firmware on it. Because i restored and errored halfway through it cannot be used at all atm

    I guess I didn't read your op close enough. I didn't realize u wanted to preserve an unlock. I'm sure they will release pwnagetool for 3gs but they will probably have a tool to use the signature files or just a tweak to iTunes that skips the apple verification. In ur op what do u mean by half firmware?

    oh fair enough, whats op?
    what i mean by half firmware is that ive tried to restore but it failed halfway through thus meaning it has started but not finished so i dont have any firmware on it (and the old one is gone too)
    cheers!
