    I am totally new to jailbreaking, my iphone 3gs have the 3.1 firmware (05.11.07) and I am looking to jailbreak it and upgrade it to 3.1.2 in the process. Can someone please give me the instruction on how to do that? I searched on the forum but google keep showing me results from people that have different firmware version. Thanks

    In case it is relevant, I have also recorded the ECID of the phone and a copy of the 3.1 SHSH file of my phone.

    Make a custom firmware with pwnagetool and shift-restore to that.

    Here's a guide: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool [Mac]

    My iphone isn't jailbroken yet, what would be the safest tool to use to jailbreak 3.1?

    Also, since the guide linked was talking about 3.1.3, I assume it work exactly the same regardless of the firmware version?

    I prefer redsn0w 0.9.2...u will need that and an official 3.1 firmware which u can download from the download section of this site...here is a link and and guide for redsn0w 3G unlock - official redsn0w devteam site

    correction...u will need an official 3.0 that can be downloaded from here...just point redsn0w at the 3.0 firmware even though u are jailbreaking 3.1

    Missed that one. Jailbreak and then shift-restore.

    Tried that, doesn't work. redsnow just stuck at the uploading exploit phase. Now going to restore my iphone since it seems like the failed process slowed down my iphone.

    Update: Just finished restoring, everything is ok now but of course I am back to square one. Will attempt the blackrain method and report back the result.

    Another update: Finally gave up and just used blackra1n, since my previous restore worked I guess there's nothing to lose. So far the jailbreak itself was fine, just need a bit of time downloading Cydia using the sloooooooooow wifi I have at home. Thanks everyone
