    Default 3GS custom 3.2.1 for download, can i trust it?

    Hi

    I have a PC so i can't use PwnageTool to custom make my 3.2.1 IPSW for my 3GS Iphone. But i have found custom Firmwares on website for download. My question is:

    can i trust these websites for their custom firmware?
    does anyone know if there is a trusted website that offers custom firmware of 3.2.1?

    Thank You.

    Personally I wouldn't... it's almost like installing random programs from the Internet. In general it's not a good idea.

    In addition, if you screw up your phone by installing the wrong firmware (which is very possible) you won't be able to downgrade to your current firmware if your SHSH wasn't stored with Saurik's server.

    Just find a friend with a Mac, or if you're really desperate stop by the computer lab at a university/college. They're bound to have some Macs that you can use for free.

    What tanameyer said. It's near impossible to check the file and guarantee it is previously pwned and you stand to lose a lot if someone has seeded a bad copy of the IPSW. Friend of mine ended up downloading 3.1.2 "pwned" from a torrent, and it was 3.1.3. He didn't read the dialogs before the upgrade so he went right ahead and upgraded his 3GS to 3.1.3 -- with no SHSH on file. While using an alternate carrier.

    Needless to say he's in a bit of a pickle right now -- the phone is definitely locked and he's stuck on 3.1.3...

    I'd say it may be easier to find a Mac somewhere to make the pwn firmware than it would be worth it to gamble with one you find on the internet -- even if the firmware revision is the right revision, you may download a "pwned" firmware only to find out it's stock Apple firmware.

    If you feel lucky, you can find out the MD5 hash of the legit Apple firmwares for 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 and see if you can find an MD5 hash of the pwn firmware for 3.1.2, and check that way -- but even then, depending on the options checked by the people who pwned the firmware, the MD5 hash can be entirely different....

    IMO, not worth the risk unless you can handle running with a 3.1.3 stock firmware in case something terrible happens.
