    I just downgrade my 3gs from 4.0 to 3.1.3, jailbreak and downgrade on windows 7

    PLEASE READ THROUGH FIRST BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS

    What you need

    Itunes 9.1 Old Version of iTunes Download - Old Version of iTunes Download - OldApps.com
    Blackrain blackweather
    Spirit Spirit
    SHSH for 3.1.3 on sarik server
    All you need is 2 computers if possible
    1 with itunes 9.2 and the other with itunes 9.1

    Go To notepad in start menu
    Right click on notepad and run as administrator
    Go to file and click open and go to
    C:windows/system32/drivers/etc/hosts
    and type in at bottom

    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

    then restart computer, for some reason this doesn't work without restart.

    Now put iphone into DFU mode, turn phone off then hold power and home button together for 10 sec, then release power button while connected to itunes, Shift + restore and go to your copy of 3.1.3 firmware and restore.

    It will go through the restore and give you 1015 error, ignore this and close itunes down. Your phone should have itunes connection on screen.

    Now put blackrain into Crograms files(X86)/Common files/Apple/Apple Application Support
    And change compatibility to run on windows XP.

    Then run blackrain from there, it will recognize the phone and start running just leave it running, go have a coffee or something, for approximately 20 mins. This will NOT jailbreak, just used to reboot phone.

    Disconnect phone, power off then power on and it should start up but will be unactivated.

    You will have to set up new phone, as any saved backups won't be able to be used.

    If you want to jailbreak you need to use itunes 9.1 and Spirit.
    For this it is better to have it on another computer, or go through all the pain of uninstalling itunes completely.
    I mean all of the extra addons that itunes installs and you also have to do registry clean, otherwise spirit won't work.

    This worked for me, but i don't guarantee that it will work for everyone.

    Lots of luck

    Will this process result in a tethered jailbreak, where an iPhone power off will necessitate another jailbreak activity?

    No. The jailbreak with spirit makes it untethered.

    How do I know if I have my SHSH on Cydia/Saurik?
    Is there a way to find out for sure? Like a look up with you IMEI or something?

    First off there hasn't been any method like this that I have found.

    Blackra1n is only being used to bring the phone out of recovery mode, is Not being used to jailbreak. Spirit is used as the jailbreak.

    try running quickpwn again..do exactly as it says and close quickpwn as soon as your phone shows the apple logo. It should take care of the recovery boot.

    OMG OMG OMG!!!! Thank you sir THIS WORKED WITH ME 100% can't thank you enough!
    just click on the thank you if I helped alleviate your pain

    forgot to mention. Do not run spirit until your phone returns to its normal state. check your setting to make sure you have the 3.1.3 firmware before hooking up with spirit.

    Make sure your Phone isn't in the "Emergency LockScreen" then use Spirit to jailbreak.

    To get out of "Emergency LockScreen" just put an AT&T sim card (doesn't have to be active) in and restart phone.

    You can't use blackra1n until you get error 1015 on iTunes. Make sure u put those 2 lines in your hosts file then Restart pc.

    sator, is this a new 3Gs with iOS 4 or is this a 3Gs that was on OS3.x before and you upgraded it to iOS 4? Was your 3Gs ever Jailbroken before?
