So I have a 3GS with 3.1.2 jailbroken, and lately it has been crashing numerous times a day and has been a lot slower than usual. Is there anyway I can do a restore without being forced to upgrade to 3.1.3? I tried doing the Shift + Restore option, choosing the 3.1.2 firmware I downloaded, but it gives an error message that I will edit into the post as soon I get home. Are there any suggestions?
I have the same problem here.
Got a 3GS with 3.1.2, JB with blackrain and it worked great.
Dummily enough I went to cydia and installed OpenSSH as well as iReboot (I think thats the name, just an app to reboot the phone).
Decided to restart it.
So usb/itunes screen came up, fired blackrain to make it boot and geohot's pic came up for a long time and nothing happened, then it rebooted by itself and went back into the usb/itunes screen.
Tried several times booting it through blackrain but same thing happends.
Tried restoring 3.1.2 from itunes but it doesnt let me, since it tries to verify it with apple, my SHSH on cydia are for 3.1.3 unfortunately.
Tried a custom 3.1.2 restore but it gets stuck on the preparing the iphone for restore screen, then it times out and throws an error.
There are links at the bottom. One of those links is to download the official 3.1.3 firmware. If you download it, it may be a *.zip file. To avoide any problems, don't unzipped or extract. Simply rename it to a *.ipsw file instead of a *.zip file, and then direct sn0wbreeze to that file as your original firmware.
Also, you are on Windows, correct? Because if you're on a Mac, there is a different tool aloes PwnageTool. Sn0wbreeze is only for Windows.
Ok well i'm having the same problem. I have a mac. I did check make my life easier on cydia. I have not upgraded or restored yet because I dont want to if i don't have to , but my ipod keeps going into restore mode. I run blackra1n and it just hangs. what should i do?
