    This really worked. I have set up a thread to explain how because I know how frustrating it is to jailbreak a 3GS 3.1.3

    what makes this the old bootrom? the 4th and 5th digits? I keep hearing the MC bootrom/model is NOT jailbreakable. Please let me know if I'm in the wrong.

    Jailbreakable or not has nothing to do with the bootrom. Bootrom does however affect whether it'll be tethered or not.

    The MC thing doesn't go for iPhone 3GS. It only goes for ipt2g.

    Sorry. I forgot to add the link to my thread. Here it is. If you try and you get stuck let me know. If you have a 3GS with old bootrom and don't need an unlock. This will work. http://modmyi.com/forums/3g-s-downgr...3-1-3-3gs.html

    I'm pretty sure that a 3GS with the new bootrom is not jailbreakable. I have not seen anyone who has done it. There have been people that claim they have but didn't realize that it was the old bootrom.

    Any 3GS, new or old bootrom is not jailbreakable on 3.1.3

    Any 3GS, new or old bootrom is jailbreakable on 3.1.2 and lower.

    The bootrom simply decides whether you need to plug your phone into your computer every time you need to boot up.

    edit: just to add, old bootrom phones can accept custom firmwares whereas new bootrom can not.

    Oh you obviously don't know what you are talking about. I have a 3GS running on 3.1.3 old bootrom jailbroke. *See pictures*. Please don't post things on my thread if you have the wrong facts. People might listen to you.

    Dude, you did nothing special. You upgraded from a jailbroken state at 3.1.2 to a custom pre-jailbroken ipsw, made with either sn0wbreeze or PwnageTool 3.1.5 Then you installed MyWi.

    What dhamien was saying was that you can't jailbreak a stock install of 3.1.3 on a 3G[S], and he is correct. The ONLY way to jailbreak your 3G[S] if it got upgraded to stock 3.1.3 is to downgrade to 3.0, 3.1, or 3.1.2 then jailbreak and restore to a custom pre-jailbroken 3.1.3 ipsw.

    I understand that I did nothing special. Not claiming I did. However, as I looked at all the threads I noticed that there were many people were trying to jailbreak their 3GS and having a lot of the same problems I did so I wanted to try to help them and tell them what I did. Trust me I don't think I did something amazing that no one else has ever done. I just followed like 5 tutorials and made it into one to try to let people know that own 3GS with old bootrom that it is possible to jailbreak with their stored SHSH hashes.

    What dhamien said was "Any 3GS, new or old bootrom is not jailbreakable on 3.1.3" which simply is not true. No where in there did he say a "stock" 3GS. I have a 3GS and was at the official 3.1.3 OS and was able to jailbreak. I just don't want people to be misled.

    Smartass. You didn't jailbreak 3.1.3, you got there by being jailbroken previously.

    3.1.3 can not be jailbroken on the 3GS. You can get there by downgrading and then updating to a custom firmware, but that isn't jailbreaking 3.1.3, that's using an old exploit.

    Being able to downgrade isn't affected by model or iBoot version. It's decided by whether or not you stored the SHSH files for the OS version you're trying to downgrade to.

    Cydia made storing those files easy for you .. if you asked it to by clicking the 'Make my life easier' inside the app.

    If you've never done that, you can't downgrade.

    But it's a nice phone you have, with the iBoot version and factory unlock, so hold onto it until a jailbreak is released (could take a little time though).

    ok. I'm not on here to fight with people. Thanks for the explanation.

    Just be sure you have the old bootrom as phones with the new bootrom can't accept custom firmwares.
