    to make a long story short, i have a 3gs 3.1.3 unlocked and jailbroken working fine... untill i got a little bit adventurous and tride to take these steps to get 4.0 apps from the app store (even when i was still on 3.1.3) Quote:

Open that and change the ProductBuildVersion and ProductVersion to match that of 4.0 or 4.0.1. This is what firmware faker does only that does all the work for you by installing it.

    ProductBuildVersion says 7E18

    so I change that to 4.0?

    Cause I changed the JUST the ProductVersion to 4.0 and then restarted it, but now it's in safe mode and won't get out.

    EDIT: I got the app on the phone, thanks! BUT every time it opens, the flash screen pops up and then the app crashes. I changed the productversion and productbuildversion back to normal. Is there anyway of editing the actual app now?

    Change the product build version to 8A306 and the product version to 4.0.1. You have to change both.

    What app is it that your trying to install?

    cont. now im stuck at the spining wheel/apple logo. i was going to try to restore so i could jailbreak and unlock again but it tells me that i have to upgrade to the new firmware. can some one help me please???

    and now im stuck at the apple logo/spinning wheel and when i connect it to cpu it says im om 4.0.1. and wont let me restore. is there any way around this before i make matters worse???
    thanks!

    Hopefully you have openssh installed so you'll be able to ssh into the phone otherwise a restore is the only option.

    The firmware changers in cydia only go up to 3.1.3. There isn't one yet for 4.0. That was the point of the thread he's quoting here, but the way he copied it here it's a little confusing to tell what was actually said.

    lol newb. There app called FWchanger lets you input any firmware number and build. If I wanted I could tell to to make apps think my ipod is on 5.0 build 1337.

    Where can you get FWchanger. It's been gone from cydia for a long time.

    I couldn't find one at all. I know it's deffinately gone from bigboss. I just now managed to find a place to download the .deb to manually install, but that's seem like more work than just manually editing the SystemVersion.plist

    Ahh yeah that same link is what I found, but does FWchanger do anything other than just edit the SystemVersion.plist?
    I'm not trying to be a smart a**. I'm genuinely curious
