    but the ipsw has my saved blobs in it so it has to be the one for me that phone came with 6.1.3 when i bought it and im using a signed cutom 6.1.3 all i did was take an official 6.1.3 ipsw and us ifaith to inject my blobs. what other options do i have so i can rebuild the nand and get back to the homescreen

    Stop trying to restore from your SHSH blobs. It won't make a difference if you are giving it away. Just click the restore button in iTunes and let it do its thing.

    iOS 6.1.3 is the latest version for the 3GS so there is no need to use a custom firmware to restore it. Also custom firmwares don't work with iTunes 11.1 if that's the iTunes version your using.

    You'll need to install the latest version of iTunes, then restore your phone. Hope this helps and Welcome to iMore!!!

    I only found one download available for Windows 64bit but it doesn't say its compatible with XP. I'll post the link anyway and if it doesn't work, you may want to try restoring with a close family member or friend's computer. I wish I could be of more service to you...Good Luck!!

    iTunes 11.1.4 for Windows (64-bit)
