    Default Help, trying to upgrade firmware from 3.1.2 to ios 4.0.1 and above

    Hi All,

    I am quite new to this so please bear with me. I have an iPhone 3GS with version 3.1.2 (7D11) modem firmware 05.11.07 which has been jailbroken with Blackra1n (everytime my phone runs out of battery or switches off i have to run Blackra1n to continue to use my phone). As this OS is old now I would like to update to 4.0.1 and above if possible. After looking for several hours on the internet and trying several methods I have been unsuccessful in doing this.

    I have tried to update my phone to 4.0.1 with iTunes (trying to update my firmware by keeping hold of shift and selecting a downloaded 4.0.1 ipsw file) and tried to use redsnow to update the firmware with no luck. I have also tried to remove the Blackra1n jailbreak as well with no luck.

    Another issue i have as well is that my Cydia crashes when loading data, so i am unable to get into Cydia as well. I tried to use iFile to fix the Cydia issue but that also crashes as well and i subsequently removed the app of my phone.

    After looking through several websites I came across this forum in the hope that someone can give me a step by step guide (a dummys guide if possible ) to update from 3.1.2 to the ios 4 and above.

    Any help would be much appreciated, and thanks in advance.

    The iPhone 3GS requires SHSH for restores of iOS 4.x+. You'll need to do some research about what these are, and then hope you told Cydia to make your life easier so you can use TinyUmbrella to download them. If you don't have any SHSH, you will only be able to go to iOS 5.1 presently. Click the link in my sig (SHSH) for more information about it, or search the forums, I've detailed what they are and why people need them and how to get them a bunch of times. Alternately, google it, you'll find a lot of good information about it there as well.
    The preceding forum post has been brought to you by the letter "N" and the number 42.

    iPhone 4, 32GB (iOS 6.1.2 | evasi0n | SHSH: 4.0 - 6.1.2)
    iPad 2 3G, 64GB (iOS 6.1.2 | evasi0n
    |
    SHSH: 4.3 & 4.3.3 - 6.1)
