    Launch 3Gs, I have a 3.0.1 ECID on file w/ Cydia, never updated to 3.1. Was having odd battery issues and then in the middle of a conversation today, phone went dead and hasn't turned on since(just the dead battery logo pops up, will go into DFU, but obviously can't restore with 3.0.1). I'd say the phone was around 75% when this happened. Regardless of that, do I have any options at this point? From what I understand, I can restore to 3.1 and hope/pray there is a jailbreak for me or I use a backup phone until I'm sure there is an option. I'm with AT&T, so need for unlocking.

    I'm kind of confused, but is tricking apple into using Saurik's server or is that only for an accidental upgrade to 3.1?

    thanks!

    You can restore to a custom 3.1 ipsw made with Pwnage and be jailbroken again. Dont restore to Apple stock 3.1

    I'm assuming I make the IPSW file, do I need to do anything with Saurik's server or anything like that, or just build it and restore?

    Just build and restore

    You'll need a Mac though. If you dont have a Mac, you can google for a custom ipsw to use. We dont allow linking to modified FW files here.

    Should work fine. I upgraded mine from 3.0 to 3.1 same way a week or so ago, no problems.

    CPJR: Is it really just that easy to jailbreak 3.0 3GS to 3.1 on windows? Just go get a custom FW, then just shift restore in iTunes? This will automatically install Cydia and everything? I've just been waiting for the team to release a Windows compatible tool so I haven't even really considered using shift restore with a custom fw. Are there already 3.1.2 custom fw's out there for download?

    Its that easy AS LONG as your 3GS was original with 3.0/3.0.1 and is already jailbroken. Dont think 3.1.2 is out yet.

    And it will have Cydia installed as long as the custom ipsw your using has Cydia packaged in it.

    Ok thanks for the info man. I would hit the button if I could from the iPhone version of mmi. I'm already jailbroken so I guess il wait till they release the updated version of pwnage tool to get a 3.1.2 custom fw.

    I keep getting a 1600 error. I can only put my phone into DFU(power/home, continue home). I can't do the home, then USB trick. So maybe that's my problem. Regardless, I'll keep trying a few things, if not, I can't go a day without my phone, so I'll end up having to go to 3.1 and hope for the best...

    It's gotta be (or at least being worked on, if not quite finalized for release)....MuscleNerd twittered a pic of unlocked 3.1.2 via PwnageTool


    http://twitpic.com/l167s - ultrasn0w unlock still going strong on 3.1.2 as long as you stay onboard the custom IPSW train
    but also...Note this

    yep updating pwnagetool to handle 3.1.2 ipsw's...(advise you stay far away from random ipsws people are posting today)

    Werd...Not out yet...But proof that it will be doable sooner rather than later....I guess since 3.1.2 is to 3.1 what 3.0.1 was to 3.1? Just a bug fix, but essentially the same OS rather than a complete re-write...

    So I never got the phone to restore of that ipsw file I made. On my PPC 10.4.11 machine, it would freeze when it said it was going to prepare the phone for restore. Restarted my computer probably ten times. Used my girlfriends 10.5 intel macbook and it would give me the error I mentioned earlier. So I choose the stock 3.1 ipsw and just as soon as my phone turned on and a white screen popped up, I pulled the USB. Waited a second, turned the phone on. Waited a second, then hit the power button and my phone is back on with 68% battery. I'm doing a full backup and I'll deal with after the football game tomorrow and hopefully get it up to 3.1 and get everything good to go.
    Any suggestions for stuff I should do while my phone is working in case this happens again? Files I need? Places I should send ECID files or anything like?

    edit: Well shoot, just noticed I have a 3.1 ECID on file thru cydia, swear I had 3.0.1 on there. Oh well, poop happens...
