    Well I decided to install blackra1n's snow to unlock my iphone. Now ever since I did that my service frequently looses signal, then goes to searching, then to no signal, then back to signal. Many people tried calling me with it either going straight to my voicemail or the phone freezing/losing signal when I slide to answer. As I receive many important calls I need to get this fixed. I understand blacksn0w cant be removed without a restore. I want my software to remain 3.1.2 so I can re-jailbreak without installing snow. Basically im lost as of now what to do since last time I had to do all this restore stuff was with my old 3g before the 3gs was even out

    Some info about my phone it is the 3GS, old bootrom, currently 3.1.2 but cydia has my ShShs files saved as 3.1.3 for some reason (even though I never upgraded), I had it synced/backup before I jailbroke it. Using AT&T in the US, Any more info needed just ask

    And if I restored using one of the custom firmwares would all my pictures, audio, etc be deleted?

    Thanks everyone in advance, Really glad I stumbled across this forum.

    not sure why you would try to unlock if you are on official carrier but if you are sure you have the old bootrom (iBoot) 359.3 not the new 359.3.2 (you can make sure by following this )you can create a custom 3.1.2 ipsw using pwnagtool (mac) sn0wbreeze (pc) and resotre to it. if you sync your phone to get all your pic, audio, etc. before you install the new firmware you can just re-sync once you are done to get them back

    Thanks a lot one thing though, i downloaded sn0wbreeze and started it but there is no way to create a custom ispw it just gives me simple or expert mode and then asks to browse for the 3.1.3 ispw?

    yeah, you have to use the original 3.1.3 ipsw to make the custom one.

    if you are trying to make a 3.1.2 then you need to download an official 3.1.2 not a 3.1.3

    oh ok Thanks a lot I'm downloading from here ill let you know how it goes

    iPhone Downloads | iPhone 3G 3.1.2 ipsw Download

    edit: didnt work said not a vaild ipsw file... its asking for a 3.1.3 for some reason

    edit:nvm the snowbreeze i downloaded is for the newest 3.1.3, guess i gotta find the snowbreeze lite for 3.1.2

    the sn0breeze lite works, now since my phone is unlocked but still activated at&t network during the sn0wbreeze create do i click that i "Want to activate it" since i want it locked back to at&t?

    well sn0wbreeze finished and put it on my desktop, i tried the shift install when connected to itunes but it says the firmware is not compatible

    gonna try this didnt see Thank you very much!

    well even without my knowledge im guessing since my iphone is the old bootrom,already jailbroken etc ill create a custom 3.1.3 package and then restore it with that, if everything is already jailbroken it should remain jailbroken when using the custom 3.1.3 to restore correct?
