    Question noob - how to upgrade 3gs from 3.1.3 to 4.x

    hi guys,
    so i got an iphone 3gs its on firmware 3.1.3, jailbroken and unlocked.
    its baseband? is 05.12.01 and i have the .shsh file thing saved on my pc.
    not sure what app was used to jailbreak my phone as i didnt do it myself.

    a long while ago i was on an earlier fw i think 3.0 and i accidently updated it in itunes to 3.1.3 and had a bricked phone for many many months so im very cautious about doing anything to my phone

    anyways now i just want to upgrade it to a newer firmware and sell it, i still need to jailbreak it and unlock it.

    can anyone please point me in the right direction.

    thank you for your time

    1. first find out what SHSH for what firmware version you have. Simply said "i have shsh saved" is not good enough.

    2. get tinyumbrella, connect phone, click on save shsh and you will know what you have.

    3. Best way to jailbreak it and keep the unlock is to use a custom firmware 4.1 created by pwnagetool_4.1.3 . Pwnagetool is for Mac only, so find /borrow a mac to create custom firmware

    4. If you have gotten to #3 above, then just follow instruction in pwnage to jailbreak it.

    5. to unlock, you simply install ultrasn0w in Cydia.

    - If you need tutorial, visit iclarified.com and check the tutorial section for your device. Look for pwnagetool tutorial

    sorry ive been MIA
    went on holiday... had to reinstall windows didn't backup my favourites so lost all my important links. finally made my way back here!!

    saved my SHSH (3.1.3) with tinyumbrella months ago. i dont know if its saved in cydia or on some server, i have a copy of the file "2132082441644-iphone-3.1.3.shsh" not sure if that helps.

    recently redownloaded new version of tinyumbrealla (v4.30.05) initally i had a problem with starting TSS server, because my host file is missing???
    under saved SHSHs
    its got only iPad's listed (4.2.1, 4.3, 4.3.1, 4.3b2) my 3.1.3 fw isn't listed there? and under recent devices my iphone 3gs is not listed.

    any way didnt get time to upgrade firmware until now when i sold my phone to a friend
    somehow i managed to F it up i did my reading and followed a tut on redmondpie but still managed to mess it up and now im royal screwed. let me explain:

    1. i downloaded sn0wbreeze 2.2.1, iREB r4, tinyumbrella, 4.2.1 fw for iphone 3GS. also download greenpois0n and tinyumbrella fix recovery (all for windows)
    2. i used sn0wbreeze to create a custom firmware, in expert mode i selected the activate option.
    3. when it finished i opened up itunes (10.1.2) and it detected my phone in recovery mode, SHIFT+clicked restore, used my custom firmware then let it do its thing.
    4. got an error, i think it was 16 something or 13 something i forget. read an article about using iREB to bypass the errors.
    5. started up iRED for iPhone3G[S]
    6. retried the process in itunes with the custom firmware..... the sn0wbreeze icon came up with the progress bar.
    7. it finished, the phone went black and its stayed black.........

    STUCK in pwned dfu mode.

    ive tried TU trying to fix recovery, it goes through a script for a minute, looks like it working but same result... black pwned dfu mode screen.
    iRecovery doesn't work, ive tried restoring the phone with a normal 4.2.1 fw in itunes, that finished with a black screen.
    i even tried redoing the process with greenpois0n which finished leaving me still stuck in pwned dfu mode.

    worst thing is that the phones not mine.....

    can anybody please tell me how to fix this

    thanks for your time

    redmondpie is NOT a trusted source of jailbreak info. (how many times do I have to write this before people get the message?)
    We don't support sn0wbreeze here at hackint0sh
    We don't recommend or support iREB

    You haven't posted a restore log - without that we cannot help you any further.
    I concur with dtube - borrow a mac (or virtualize one on top of your windows install with a free VM like virtualbox) and use pwnagetool.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
