    Ok I have screwed up my iphone because I got excited and didn't read the instructions. I performed the Spirit jailbreak but didn't realize that I would have to do a restore. I do not have any restore points because the iphone was connected to another computer that I no longer have. When I plugged the iphone into iTunes it asked me to do an upgrade and that is where I stopped. So i haven't upgraded to 3.1.3 but i do not have any restore points to go back to. The phone now boots into "plug into itunes" screen and blackrain will no longer work. Since I need the carrier unlock I do not want to upgrade.

    Is there a way to go back to my previous setup?
    Is there a way to un-spirit the phone?

    If I have lost all my data no big deal but how to I get the phone back functioning again even if I have to reactivate. But of course I do not want to upgrade to 3.1.3.

    Here are the specs:
    Iphone 3GS
    Blackrain and Blacksnow (tethered jb)
    firmware: 3.1.2

    I was hoping someone might have some insights on options on what I should do next?

    Thanks for the help
    stupidly excited

    Bro its ok now to upgrade to 3.1.3 just use Firmware Ubrella to back up your 3.1.3 SHSH you should be fine. But make sure you do that spirit JB all devices.

    Not if they need the phone unlocked. There is no unlock yet for the 3.1.3 baseband.

    I jailbroke my itouch using spirit about a month ago. Everything has been working alright, except sometimes after i downloaded new themes my ipod would shut off and take quite awhile to turn back on. Well this time it wont turn back on. I can turn it off and when i try and reboot it the apple sign just stays on my screen, and when i plug it into the computer it doesn't register it as there. What can I do to turn it on?

    Plug it into iTunes. Hold power and home buttons for 10 seconds then let go of power continuing to hold onto the home button. ITunes should now detect it

    What gen of your itouch do you have ?

    Plug it into iTunes. Hold power and home buttons for 10 seconds then let go of power continuing to hold onto the home button. ITunes should now detect it
    And you are now entering dfu mode for a restore.
    To enter recovery mode : Turn iphone off, while holding Home button, plug your iphone in, itunes cable logo appears, this is recoverr mode.
    Both DFU and Recovery require a restore.
