    Ok, so I have my iPhone 3G, using 3.1.2 jailbroken with Blackra1n. It's doing great.

    I went and bought an iPhone 4 this morning... it has come pre-loaded with 4.0.2. As I am slowly finding out... this is a slap in the face from Apple. I cannot downgrade to ANY firmware, I've spent three hours an countless websites... nothing works that I've tried.

    How can I possibly jailbreak and/or downgrade my iPhone 4 on 4.0.2 firmware to 4.0.1? I miss my themes.

    Unfortunately you can't. All you can do is wait for the next jailbreak.

    As far as I know it is impossible. There's no way that the SHSH files could have been backed up and Apple has just stopped signing 4.0.1. Hopefully for you there will be a jailbreak for 4.0.2 but most likely you will have to wait for 4.1.

    Is there someway of like... completely transferring all of what my 3G uses over to the 4? Like a DVD image (.ISO)?

    No, even if you could get an image from the 3G it wouldn't work on the iPhone 4 because the firmwares are built differently.

    Bloody hell. Just when we win to get Jailbreaking legal Apple goes and slaps us around again. They just cannot keep their greedy hands off our freedoms.

    However, there's nothing to say you can't try TinyUmbrella to see if Cydia has your 4.0.1 SHSH.

    I don't mean to give you too much hope, but there was one poster here whom received two brand new iPhone 4s, and discovered that both of them already had their SHSHs saved. How it happened, who can say? Can't hurt to check, though.

    See, I never caught onto this whole TinyUmbrella thing. If I have an unjailbroken iPhone 4 running 4.0.2 how do I get TinyUmbrella to work? I do not get the whole process.

    Oh. I... uhm... accidentally deleted my Hosts file (that adding Saurik's address to get the firmware to sign? thing). [someone posted it on a forum if adding his address didn't work to delete the file].

    Are these Hosts files all the same? If so, can you post how to make one and what goes in it? [I feel like a moron for doing it but I might need it if this ShSH thing works out.]

    I've never had to use tiny umbrella but I'm pretty sure you just have to open it and press the TSS server button. Then try to restore.

    Perhaps I already asked this but could I downgrade to 3.1.2 from 4.0.2? Apple may have stopped signing 4.0.1 and 3.2.1 (iPad) but perhaps not 3.1.2?

    I hate to say it because 4.0.2 has some elegant features, but I would really only be losing Facetime for now, and the ability to edit Playlists and such from within the iPod function. Also, would the iPhone 4 still be taking advantage of its hardware on 3.1.2, as in will is still use HD, cemera resolution, video capability.etc?

    I don't think so, they stop signing all of them in order as the new versions are released. Most likely, 3.1.2 has not been signed for quite a while.

    Nevermind my above question... I just tried... and unless I did something wrong (which is actually very possible) it will not go. iPhone 4 will NOT use Firmware from a 3, aparantly.

    I miss my themes and sounds. I can manipulate some Ringtones in there by fooling iTunes... but those six stupid text message tones are ridiculous. Bloody hell... what a snafu this is. Almost makes me want to use my 3G again.

    You couldn't even downgrade iphnoe 4 to a 3.x.x firmware because there was never one released.

    And yes, I love my iPod on 3.1.3.

    I love my iPhone 3G on 3.1.2. But the iPhone 4 has some great features. Ah well, guess I wait for 4.1. Shouldn't be too long, if Beta 3 was out recently. I know Apple likes to bring these updates quickly.

    I donno, they usually like to make people wait a long time for new features. Apple will probably wait 'till the iPod Touch 4G to release it which hopefully is soon .

    Sooooo the best fix is get a new iPhone. LMAO

    I had battery and signal/SIM issues (not related to the whole Antennagate) and replaced my iPhone 4. They gave me one with 4.0.1! Anyone experiencing the issue with getting a brand new iPhone 4 with 4.0.2 and not being able to jailbreak... just claim some issues, to the troubleshoot (fake it) and get it replaced. Luck may hit you and get a replacement with a lower firmware.

    -Jailbreak, here I come!

    Ya, you have to be lucky to get a 4.0.1, unless you live in a small town and go to Walmart or something not an Apple store, and it will always almost have 4.0.1 still.
