    I recently picked up a used 3gs jailbroken and unlocked at rev 3.0.1 modem firmware (baseband) 04.26.08. Cydia is so old it crashes when I try to open it. But the unlock is working. I'd like to update to at least 3.1.3 or some other custom firmware but I don't know how this phone was jailbroken.
    I'd like to keep the baseband right where it is as unlock is needed. I don't think shsh files are there for it. I ran it in tiny umbrella and only one blob showed up after running tss server.(4.2.1) Can't check on cydia as it is crashing.
    What would you guys recommend to bring this phone up to date without updating the baseband. I am running a windoze machine so I'd be asking for the custom firmware too!
    Thanks in advance,

    SInce you are that far back you have a old bootrom 3GS. With only 4.2.1 SHSH though if you try and restore you will be forced to 4.2.1. Basically you need a pwnage tool made 4.2.1 custom firmware that has no baseband update in it and shift restore to that. It wont install cydia but will preserve your baseband, then you can use redsnow 0.9.6rc8 to install cydia. We cannot provide custom firmware here but you should be able to find one with a quick google search.

    Hello, I've got an iPhone 3gs, 4.2.1, with a 16.05.00 baseband. I have been told not to restart my iPhone or else i will have to bring back to the shop where they already jailbroken it and unlocked, but mistakenly my iphone turned off 2 days ago and ive been trying to jailbreak it using limera1n on windows and it is not working in anyway ! It's just that my iPhone is turned off and everytime i turn it on, a Apple sign appears with no function ! Please help me out fixing this. thank you

    Use redsnow 0.9.6rc8. Point it to a regular 4.2.1 firmware. Choose the option to boot tethered.

    Thanks x98car for the advice. I found a custom firmware, then I had to use redsnow 0.9.6rc8 to put it into pawned DFU mode or else I would get error 1600 or 21. Tried I-reb and same errors. So only redsnow worked.
    I am now running 4.2.1 with a baseband of 4.26.08. Maybe someday there will be a way to downgrade the software without Apple having to sign it.

    Hi All,

    I have a 3GS 3.1.2 that is jailbroken with Blackra1n and unlocked with "Cydia" can't remember the program, I think it was sn0wbreeze?
    It is tethered and I would like to get away from the tether.
    What would be the best way to go from here?

    By the way I have read all 24 pages on this thread, and the 101's.

    Yes I do need it to unlock, on T-mobile.

    Saved SHSHs on tini umbrella are-

    iPhone3GS 3.1.3 (7E18)
    iPhone3GS 4.0 (8A293)
    iPhone3GS 4.0.1 (8A306)
    iPhone3GS 4.0.2 (8A400)
    iPhone3GS 4.1 (8B117)
    iPhone3GS 4.2.1 (8C148a)
    iPhone3GS 4.3b2 (8F5153d)

    Thanks in advance,

    Your easiest choice would be to restore to a regular 4.0.1 firmware. Jailbreak with jailbreakme.com or limerain. Then unlock with ultrasnow from cydia.

    Will that upgrade make my phone better and as fast?

    Speed wise you should be the same. It will add a few features.

    Would you be able to give me a quick outline of exactly how I would do that upgrade and the order?
    I can do the limerain, and ultrasnow.
    Would I lose my current Cydia?
    Does limerain also install Cydia?

    Also I have a friends 3GS on 3.1.3 OLD bootrom with the same SHSHs. I jailbroke it with Spirit and unlocked with ultrasn0w, and it is untethered. Would you recommend the same for his phone?

    Thanks for the help,

    It all depends if you want the 4.0 features or not.

    All you have to do is:
    Download tiny umbrella, open it once, then close it.
    Download the 4.0.1 firmware
    Put the phone in dfu and shift restore to the 4.0.1 firmware.
    Once done if you have a official carrier sim first use that to get past the emergency call screen.
    If you don't have one just proceed to use limerain.
    It will install a icon on your iPhone. Use that to install cydia.

    Vital Stats...
    Device: iPhone 3GS with old bootrom
    FW: 4.0 (8A293) jailbroken with jailbreakme.com
    Model: MB715LL
    Serial: 87923...
    BB: 05.13.04 Unlocked (US phone on Vodaphone UK)
    SHSH saved for 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1
    OS: Windows 7

    I would like to upgrade to an untethered jailbreak and retain my current baseband with carrier unlock. Can I upgrade to 4.2.1 untethered, or is 4.1 my only option? How should I do the upgrade?
