    You can only jailbreak 3.1.3 with Spirit or Redsn0w, not Blackra1n. Without SHSH files backed up, you cant restore a 3GS.

    If you need an unlock youre out of luck there too, you upgraded your baseband.

    If you still want to continue to jailbreak, Spirit should work. If it doesnt work, then Im not so sure you have any other option.

    to jailbreak 3.1.3 with redsn0w you need to download an official 3.1.2 ipsw and point redsn0w at that even though you are jailbreaking 3.1.3

    Not to put you down in any way, but improper grammar and spelling will get you less help than you otherwise would. Not because people aren't interested in helping, but because it's hard to understand what the problem actually is.

    You say you have a 3GS on 3.1.3 - well, you'll need an official sim to activate it if you want to use it as an ipod. There's absolutely no way around this, no tool will help you. If you have no way of getting access to an official sim, unfortunately your device is unusable.

    Well, you can't load a custom firmware onto an unjailbroken phone on 3.1.3, so that's why you get 160x errors. There's also the possibility that your phone can't use CFWs at all. The phone needs to have the old bootrom and anything bought later than sep/oct last year most likely has the new bootrom.

    If you have SHSH for 3.1.2, you can restore to a stock 3.1.2 and then jailbreak/hactivate with blackra1n.

    The various tools can only hactivate 3.1.2 or lower.

    Just so it's clear, the SHSH needs to be 3.1.2 - not any SHSH will do.

    With that said, have you tried the process with stock/official firmware from both recovery and DFU mode?

    The 160x errors are sometimes a little hard to figure out. What sometimes works includes using a different computer, trying different USB ports, using a different cable to connect the phone, uninstalling the USB ports on the computer and rebooting and letting them reinstall.

    At one point I read that some of the 160x errors occur because of using USB 1.1 and the phone not getting the data fast enough, this would explain why the above advice works, though I don't know if in fact that is the main problem of the 160x errors.

    Since the ECID/SHSH has been saved in Cydia, the only way to restore is using the Saurik method or use his PC as the server in order for him to restore to 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 but the problem is I believe his BB has been updated to 5.12.07 which is not possible to UNLOCK as of this moment ... he has to wait for OS 4.0 next month ...
