    Unhappy Restoring 3G 3.1.2 what am I doing wrong? Urgent

    Going to sell my 3GS, which has been unlocked and jailbroken. It had been laying for six months and I would start it today to remove contacts, sms etc. before I sell it to someone who must have it on Monday.

    Now it starts it but only show apple logo and the "spinning wheel" and start over and over but not completely.
    Have downloaded the ipsw for 3.1.2 and tried to reinstall and then use Blackra1n but get an error message in itunes.
    Have tried to include 74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com in terminal, private / etc / hosts but I can not figure out how to save it there in terminal. Can not go to / etc / hosts file via Finder as it says that I do not have permission to do it. I have updated to 3.1.2 once before but that was when 3.1.2 was released and then it worked just fine on iTunes 9. Now I have itunes 10 on Mac.

    Need tips and help and hope someone can help then I would have to get it fixed tomorrow 12/12.

    Buddy Plz. specify some details which are necessary to give you the solution.

    You have iphone 3gs new bootrom or old bootrom?
    Previously You were on ios3.1.2?
    Did you tried to erase all the data via your iphone itself by resetting all??
    Do you rely on a unlock or its a factory unlocked iphone?

    It is normally a bad idea to use "erase all content and settings" when you want to clean up a phone to sell it. We get nearly daily questions from people who do this and end up being forced to restore to the latest iOS version (and subsequently cannot unlock the phone). A quick search before you jump in and do something stupid like this is always a good idea.

    Blackra1n is NOT a good jailbreak, it is NOT recommended. The developer has quit the scene and there is no support or improvements provided for it.

    Tiny Umbrella The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella will set this for you, and you can also check if you have a SHSH for your current iOS version.

    iTunes version is NOT your problem when it comes to updating/restoring to 3.1.2 - your problem is SHSH. I really hope that you backed up your 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 SHSH with Cydia. SHSH - The iPhone Wiki

    This is a very good question. Did you need to run blackra1n each time you rebooted the iPhone?
