    I have a 3GS, with 3.1.2 and baseband 4.26.08 (I think)

    I used Blackra1n to jailbreak it, and added a few apps, including Backgrounder and My3G (for Skype), plus Kirikae.

    One of the last 3 programs is causing endless problems, including having the phone go NO SERVICE for a minute many times a day. Finally, we went into a deep freeze, with a white apple with a frozen starburst under it.

    Of course, I can't find a restore file, and restoring from Apple's servers to 3.1.3 is constantly timing out on me for some reason. I don't think there is a jailbreak and/or unlock for 3.1.3 anyway, so I tried to find a 3.1.2 restore file somewhere online, to no avail.

    Can someone step me through this? Now the battery is dead on the phone, since it practically caught fire trying to reboot itself (must be in an endless loop?)

    Thanks for any help or redirect to the appropriate thread.

    If you are currently jailbroken you can build a custom 3.1.2 firmware with sn0wbreeze.. put your phone into DFU or recovery mode and restore to that.

    Darn. I read the title and thought it was either about a new kind of candy or a new flavor of smoothie

    You're unbelievably lucky that the 3.1.3 update timed out

    downloaded snowbreeze...it needs an ipsw file.. where do I get this?

    Nevermind...found it here....all is working again!

    Well, now I tried to blackra1n the phone, and I don't think it took. I cannot find the blackrain icon, and also I can't get the no signal ( and no carrier, ie _ _ _). Is there anything I can do next to get this phone back?

    Ran it several times, still no rock your world or blackrain icon.

    Need more help- I restored using snowbreeze and the 3.1.2 file I found here for the 3gs. F0rcast says I have 3.1.2 and 5.11.07. I have Cydia and rock your phone. Problem is, I have no carrier, no phone, just the 5 dashes in the top left corner. What do i have to do next to get phone service?
