    Hi Guys,

    Just Jailbroken my 3GS 3.1.3 (New BootRom) with Spirit.

    Opened Cydia and it said I should update, so I did.
    It rebooted and now Cydia just crashes within seconds of me opening it.

    As I have only just jailbroken it I did not install SSH, as I see there are a number of threads which say I have to delete a few files.

    So what other options do I have? As when I try to restore it apple try to make me upgrade to 4.0.

    Am I screwed?

    I think that you are going to have to restore. But before you do, make sure to sync your stuff with iTunes. Then just restore and rejailbreak with Spirit. After jailbreaking just re-sync your stuff back into your phone. I haven't seen this kind of problem before, so maybe something went wrong during the jailbreaking process. So just do everything again, but restart your computer first. Also, make sure that you don't have any other programs running while you are jailbreaking.

    Cheers for the response.

    How do I restore to 3.1.3?

    When I click restore on ITunes it says I am not eligible for the reqested build (I think that means I can only move to 4.0......)

    What do you think?

    If you saved your SHSH Blobs I think you can downgrade once you've upgraded, just visit a different thread on how to do so... or youtube

    He has 3.1.3, not 4.0 he doesnt want to upgrade/downgrade just re-jailbreak.

    Shift-Click the restore button, and find your 3.1.3 firmware file. restore to that. as i am not confident that a re-jailbreak will fix your issue. But, try running spirit again, as you never know

    If you cannot find the 3.1.3 ipsw file update on your computer.

    Find the program "Run"
    Type in %AppData%
    Hit enter and you should be able to find it from there.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I have a 3.1.3 ipsw file, unfortunately I came late to the whole jailbreak game and I didnt get my 3.1.3 SHSH before Apple stopped distributing them. So the restore aint looking too good!

    As for re-jailbreaking, tried it several times with the same results.

    Any other ideas? Or its going to be a restore to 4.0.
