    Default Assistance Required 3gs 3.1.2 to 4.x

    Dear all,


    First, thanks in advance for taking at least the time to read this, all your assistance is greatly appreciated.

    I am completelly new to this.

    My Iphone is a 3GS that I bought with all the work done (JB and Unlocked).

    I do not have an idea on how it was done.

    I'd love to upgrade from 3.1.2 to 4.1 or another version you recommend. Most of the updated apps do not work (probably because they are made to work with 4.x).

    When i open Cydia, the top of it says: SHSS: 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1

    If I use f0recast I get:
    Baseband 05.11.07
    Bootloader 6.4
    Model MC135
    Jailbreakable YES
    Unlockable YES - (use ultrasn0w)

    In my country Costa Rica, my Iphone will not work if it is not unlocked. Also, I do not have an official carrier's SIM.


    Thanks again,


    Jeffrey B.

    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1]
    if you are on windows:
    http://www.hackint0sh.org/f206/183546.htm

    Nothing else will keep your unlock
    Don't try to use anything else but a PwnageTool Custom IPSW made by you or by someone you trust.

    Do NOT download pre-made custom IPSW from the internet. (they can't be trusted to be what they say they are)
    Do NOT try sn0wbreeze. (It has not yet been updated to work properly with this scenario and we don't recommend sn0wbreeze anyway)

    Yes, sn0wbreeze has now been updated to support iOS 4.1 - however it still is NOT recommended by the moderators here. I'm glad to hear you had a positive experience with sn0wbreeze.

    There were a lot of factors the moderators of hackint0sh considered before we decided to refuse to recommend sn0wbreeze and not support it here on this forum.

    Just because it worked for you doesn't mean it works for everybody or that it is a wise thing to recommend that everybody use it. We're not stopping people saying "it worked for me". However if you want support for sn0wbreeze - they have their own forums. We won't help you here with problems related to ih8sn0ws products.
