    mr117: I agree with a lot of things with your post. My situation is different though.

    I had a 3GS /w old bootom jb and unlocked on 3.1.2 that I had dropped and needed a new motherboard bc it wouldnt get signal. So I sold it for parts and bought another 3GS that was not upgraded to 3.1.3. Well a week later it was stuck on the apple logo trying to force me to restore, but like an idiot, I forgot to put SHSHs onfile. The last 2.5 months my 3GS has been in my bookbag. I just want a working iphone. All the custom apps got frustrating after a while anyway. I mostly used qtweeter and a few VNC apps.

    Here's a list of what works and what doesn't. If you don't read it, don't complain when your stuff doesn't work after you hurry to put 4 on your phone.

    As I posted earlier, I just ran Pwnage Tool on my 32GB 3GS, which was on 3.1.3, and had the 05.11.07 baseband. I built the custom IPSW, unchecking "Activate", since I'm on an official carrier, and I missed checking the "Enable baseband update" box.

    I successfully restored the phone, which activated itself, and proceeded to set up the phone as new. Right now it's busy with the sync. I'll let you know if I have any problems.

    Mines jailbreaking but keeps leaving me with no service
    dont forget to download ultrasnow in cydia and reinstall. I forgot this and was trying to figure it out for about 20 mins.

    everything worked fine with. Upgraded from 3.1.3 w/baseband 4.26. Winterboard has been bugy, however.

    Just thought I'd share my experience with Jailbreaking iOS 4 on 3GS...

    I have a 2008 Unibody MacBook Pro OSX 10.6.4 & iTunes 9.2
    I had a 3GS with old boot rom, previously on Jailbroken 3.1.2 using Pwnage Tool.
    I created a custom iOS 4 IPSW using Pwnage Tool 4.
    Option+Click Restore in iTune and choose my Custom IPSW.
    iPhone begins restoration process but progress bar on iPhone Screen does not go past 2/3 of the way. Left for over an hour...no change. Put iPhone in DFU mode....same issue. Used VMware Fusion to load Windows 7 and used Windows iTunes to restore....same issue.

    Tried all of the above with official IPSW iOS4 & 3.1.2...same issue

    Rebooted MacBook to boot Windows 7 and used Windows iTunes to restore using custom IPSW....SUCCESS!!!

    Has anyone else experienced similar issues?

    A bit confused here.....I have a 3G[S](Old Bootrom/3.1.3 ipsw/Spirit JB).....I'm not understanding why I can't JB via pwnage because I have used Spirit. Spirit, being a userland JB, wouldn't have any affect on a custom ipsw one might presume.....Is there anything that I can do to upgrade to a iOS 4(JB)?

    I've got 4.0 official jailbroken so if you upgraded and are on 3GS it's OK.

    I Just finished a thread on how to get jailbroken from 4.0 official on a 3GS. The problem is that phone MAY NOT have blobs on Cydia, but the good news is that IT MIGHT so try it! Just because you didn't put them there doesn't mean they are not there.

    Nope, go to my link. I just backed my 32gb 3GS out of 4.0 official back into 3.1.2 blackra1n'd then pwned 4.0 FW. You just have to have a device that has blobs on Cydia and there is a good chance that many DO from the previous owner so it's worth a try folks!
