    Hey,

    I was stuck on the stupid recovery mode like you guys and I did not know about saving my shsh on cydia... However I found this online and it actually worked.

    iPhone3GS with new boot update to original 3.1.3 keep baseband 05.11.07 100% solutio - GSM-Forum

    So basically, you can update to 3.1.3 without updating your baseband. After you're done updating, you need to find someone that has at&t sim card to get it running, or you'll be stuck in emergency mode. Use spiritjb to jailbreak 3.1.3 and use blacksn0w RC2 to unlock it if you want to use other providers. I lost all my data but i didn't brick my phone.

    Before I got stuck: Version: 3.1.2 baseband: 05.11.07
    After fix: Version: 3.1.3 baseband: 05.11.07

    I think it will work, but make sure you have the official sim to activate it

    It really WORKS!!! I have upgraded my Iphone 3gs to 3.1.3 Without baseband update. My my iphone 3gs has:
    Software version 3.1.3
    Baseband Version: 5.11.07

    Now when I enter my old career simsim card, I get "waiting for activation" messege. Although I can sync my iphone via itunes and use any springboard application. In this situation will Spirit jailbreak work?
    Phone is not stuck in emergency mode!

    well i took the chance and im glad i took it. you just need the version of IREB on ih8sn0w. after jailbreak with spirit youŽll get cydia. then u go to cydia and to add this source http://cydia.pushfix.info then search for blacksn0w rc2 to unlock

After you're done updating, you need to find someone that has at&t sim card to get it running, or you'll be stuck in emergency mode. Use spiritjb to jailbreak 3.1.3 and use blacksn0w RC2 to unlock it if you want to use other providers. I lost all my data but i didn't brick my phone.

    Before I got stuck: Version: 3.1.2 baseband: 05.11.07
    After fix: Version: 3.1.3 baseband: 05.11.07
    did the upgrade: 3.1.3 with Baseband 05.11.07 and Spirit Jailbreak.
    Now, on cydia i can only find blacksn0w RC1, which i tried before and got stuck. Where do i find Blacksn0w RC2 or 3 on Cydia, or did you use Blackra1n?
    ....
    ok, found it!!
    thanks tamboy!!!!

    well i took the chance and im glad i took it. you just need the version of IREB on ih8sn0w. after jailbreak with spirit youŽll get cydia. then u go to cydia and to add this source http://cydia.pushfix.info then search for blacksn0w rc2 to unlock
    all is good now!!!!
    3gs on 3.1.3 with 05.11.07, spiritJB and blacksn0w unlock (via Cydia rep: http://cydia.pushfix.info ->blacksn0w RC2)
    i am smiling again!! thanks all here for their help

    @kalavera
    activate the sim first then use spirit followed by blacksn0w rc2

    @Deeisler
    its easier than requiring a video, maybe u can be the first one to make a video for it. all people and me done this upgrade went successful. just pull the cable at the right moment, ireb, activate, blacksn0w rc2 and u are unlocked.

    this works for ANY 3gs on 3.1.2

    safer upgrade for those who are afraid of pulling the cable: Preventing baseband update as a last-ditch effort [iPhone Dev Team]
    it removes the baseband update from the firmware ipsw

    Guys, do not do the unplug trick. You can brick your baseband.
    Use this instead -> Preventing baseband update as a last-ditch effort [iPhone Dev Team]
    It's safer and guaranteed to work. Worked for my 3gs with new bootrom.
