    I have a new iphone 3GS 32gb and my wife has a new iphone 3GS 16gb.

    One day after we purchased both I did the jailbreak to my iphone and it went flawless. I did this with BlackRa1n RC2. It was the easiest jailbreak I had ever done! I love it

    BUT

    A couple days later I attempted to do the same to my wifes iphone but by this time BlackRa1n RC3 had come out. I checked to make sure everything was up to date and proceeded to jailbreak the iPhone. iTunes was shut down and everything.
    I did it the exact same way I had done mine. It went through its thing and went to the GeoHot image and than after that it went to recovery mode(itunes and usb plug).

    I have attempted this several times and have seen other people had the issue as well.

    Has anyone come up with a definite fix for this or a workaround?

    I am doing this as we speak. I just finally fully restored it back to normal I am going to tweak a few things and do it again.

    its all good. I have a feeling there is some tweaking that needs to be done to RC3...

    would it be possible to use RC2 again?

    If you still have RC2 on your computer you could still try to use that. It shouldn't hurt anything. I still have it on my computer, if you want I can put it somewhere for you to download, but I won't be home till late this evening and it's only 2pm here >_<

    Well, I think I have tried everything and NO LUCK. Everything is pointing back to the serial number. Apple has fixed a feature to keep you from doing an untethered JB. I will patiently wait for a fix...

    Come on GeoHot and DevTeam!!!!!

    I was under the impression RC3 is what you need if you need to unlock and jailbreak. RC2 is if you only need to jailbreak. I just jailbreaked my iphone 3gs 3.1.2 today and used RC2.

    Hope this helps
