    I'm using iphone 3GS 3.1.2 and using blackra1n jailbreak software and last day i reset the network settings, after that when i click the 'Make it rain' button i'm getting the Geohot image and then after some times it will go to the itune picture and then again geohot picture....
    i tried many times about 20 times but still he same problem is there.

    please tell me the solution to fix it even i downloaded 3.1.2 firmware and tried to restore it using iTunes but i got an error saying "The iphone couldn't be restored. the device isn't eligible for the requested build"

    Please search before posting. The sticky in this very forum addresses your issue:

    Additionally, you can't restore 3.0, 3.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 4.0 onto a 3GS without the SHSH files saved. This is why you are getting the "Device is not eligible for requested build" error -- this is also discussed at great length in these forums. If you don't know what SHSH files are, read this:

    It's a lot to read, but it's important to know. At this point however, if you don't care about the data on the phone, you can just upgrade to 4.0.1 and use JailbreakMe to jailbreak the device, then unlock with ultrasn0w. Note that you WILL need a legitimate SIM or a method whereby you legitimately activate the phone, because once you upgrade to 4.0.1 it will need activation - does not hacktivate (your device has to be past activation in order to launch MobileSafari, so it's not really possible for it to hacktivate as you couldn't get to it when the device isn't activated anyway). If you don't have a legit SIM or can't find a way to activate this legitimately, you'll just be stuck at the 'Emergency Calls Only' / 'Connect to iTunes' screen.

    Alternately, if you have an old bootrom phone (and only if you have an old bootrom phone, if you don't know or if you have a new bootrom, this won't work) you can use PwnageTool to create a custom 4.0.1 ipsw and restore that to the device, it should hacktivate and then you can unlock the phone with ultrasn0w.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.
