Can't jailbreak a brand new 3gS with 3.1.2?
I have searched but no problem seems to be exactly like mine so here we go:
-My friend just bought a 3GS today. (BRand new, unlocked, in the USA- 600 bucks)
-Turned on, after a few mins it goes to home screen, no activation.
(The idea is for him to use it on T Mobile)
-Downloaded the newest version of PwnageTool
(already have latest version of iTunes already on my Mac)
-Downloaded ipsw 3.1.2
-In pwnage tool, I selected 3GS from the first screen> then selected the ipsw I had downloaded 3.1.2 which matched the one on the phone
-It started creating a custom ipsw, asked if it had been jalbroken before and I selected "no"
-Asked me to plug the phone, did the DFU thing, said successful and restarted
-The new ipsw was saved to the desktop
-On iTunes it said it found a device in "recovery mode"
-I "restored" while holding alt and pointed to the custom ipsw pwnage tool had created...
-And that's when I got an error 1600...
Now the phone is stuck in Recovery Mode (DFU). I have followed all the steps (holding power/home, etc)... I have used iRecovery, iFuntastic, other tools and NOTHING gets it out of this mode. Only thing that "sees" the phone is iTunes and i get that error if I try any custom ipsw...
And if I try ipsw for 3.1.2? It says something about "not authorized for that version"...
SOrry for the long post but wanted to be precise.
