    Default Apple stopped signing 3.1.2 today

    Now Apple has stopped signing, it means those of you with 3gs or iPod touch 3 devices who do not have a TSS in Cydia or Rock or locally via Firmware Umbrella now cannot restore anything but 3.1.3.

    If your 3GS or iPod Touch 3rd Gen is jailbroken and you do not have an OS 3.1.2 (or earlier) TSS saved then you should be extremely careful about what you install or update on your device. You want to avoid any need to restore at all. It would be a sensible idea to install Open SSH, change the root and mobile passwords to something you can remember and if you jailbroke with blackra1n install AFC2Add. These steps will allow you to troubleshoot most problems without requiring a restore.

    Backups of just your iBEC and iBSS files from OS 3.0 or OS 3.0.1 are not enough to allow a restore you need the whole TSS/SHSH bundle

    There have been plenty of warnings and notices related to this over the past few months. Obtaining your ECID and backing up the TSS was possible even without jailbreaking and if you did jailbreak Cydia prompted to "make my life easier" which you should have accepted. So there should be no excuses for not having done this essential step.

    For owners of 3g or 2g iPhones, this message can be safely ignored as these phones don't require Apple to sign the firmware before each restore.

    Perhaps here would be a good place to put a link on how to restore if you have "made your life easier" through Cydia or Rock. I know I'd love to have it if anyone has instructions, would make this thread complete.

    I saw this purely as a warning/informational thread. There are existing threads related to restoring.

    How to restore via tinytss (from firmware umbrella) TinyTSS -- All your iphone restores are belong to you
    How to restore for Cydia Caching Apple's Signature Server : Bypassing the Overlord/Performing the Restore

    I have never used Rock but I guess it's similar to Saurik's approach but you point it at their server.

    Personally, I like the firmware umbrella approach, you get a copy of the SHSH locally on your own machine and you don't need to edit the hosts file to restore.

    Default cydia pending tss request waiting

    3GS, 3.1.2
    I have the above message on an iPhone since 4 days. I assumed that Saurik's server would almost immediately confirm that the SHSH file has been stored. Does anybody know if it will ever confirm that the SHSH is on file or could it be that for some reason that won't be possible?

    This is somewhat common behaviour when apple stops signing requests for a specific version (in this case 3.1.2)

    You can pretty much assume that you were too late to get a 3.1.2 SHSH and that once Saurik extends the system to support saving 3.1.3 SHSH then your request will be re-submitted for a 3.1.3 SHSH.

    If you want to be sure... use firmware umbrella to request a 3.1.2 SHSH via Cydia for your ECID, it will most likely give you an error.

    If you never backed up your 3.1.2 SHSH via Saurik's Cydia or via the Firmware Umbrella, you can't get a 3.1.2 SHSH now, read the first post in this thread.

    Default Hi

    Im new to this iphone world, so please bare with me. I recently got a new iphone from Apple as the previous new 3gs (3.1.2) had a "no service problem" (only had it for 2 weeks)

    I put a thread up on hear as i wanted to know if Blackra1n could of knackered my previous iphone up (as i got the problem 2 days after I used blackra1n) so I have been advised that it would not of been from the JB and to try it again on the new iphone, however someone gave me a link to this thread

    my question is, how do I know if this topic will effect my IPhone 3gs (3.1.2)before i try to JB my iphone again?

    i havent a clue on all " SHSH via Saurik's Cydia " business so could someone explain it to me in simple terms" that would be apprieated.

    thanks in advance
