    I have a 3gs jailbroken on a pwnage tool version x.x.4, the 3.1.2 FW edition.

    This phone is from week 31 of 09 and should not be tethered. sr 87931

    I know blackra1n will work. But I am stuck on 3.1.2 with no shsh on file and cannot restore. I will try to JB from the springboard but I don't think it will work.

    When I shut the phone down, then turn it on, it just hangs at the apple. I restored my Custom FW twice. Trying a simple mode FW also.

    Does anyone have a solution for this. How about a custom FW that you know works on your 3gs that you can upload.

    Thank you

    If you are on AT&T, and your phone doesn't need a carrier unlock, all you have to do is upgrade to 3.1.3, temporarily lose your JB, then jailbreak using spirit. No need for a tethered JB anymore.

    I was on 3.1.2 using Blackra1n, then i upgraded, and re-jailbroke with spirit. I can now turn my phone off with no worries.

    I am relying on a 5.11.07 BB with blacksnow, sorry for not mentioning that. It was a long night of troubleshooting.

    It is a phone I bought off of somebody, and I just learned that my shsh is stored on cydia!!!
    I still dont know how to get it off or how to do the restore, but now I know at least I am covered.

    I am definitely making another donation when the restore is successful, thanks Jay.

    Does anyone run a custom FW (PwnageTool?) on iphone 3GS, 3.1.2/3 with a 5.11.07 baseband and 06.04 bootloader. Unlocked with blacksn0w, but not JB on black ra1n or spirit?

    There is a few seconds difference in boot up speeds, and cleaner functionality in the custom ipsw IMO. I am over the custom boot logos, but that used to be cool.
