help updating iphone 3gs
i have iphone 3gs 3.1.2..running jaibroken and unlocked ....but now want to updTE IT TO LATEST FIRMWARE ...PLS SUGGEST ME TO WHICH FIRMWARE I SHUD GO FOR .......ND HOW CAN I DO IT ...I HAVE WINDOWS 7 RUNNING ON MY LAPTOP
Firstly, don't shout - it's not going to get you help any faster.
- Use The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella to save your 4.1 and (if possible 4.2b3) SHSH as soon as possible
- Find a friend with a mac - get them to make you a custom IPSW using the procedure here: iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1]
- Use redsn0w 0.9.6b4 to put your 3GS into pwned DFU mode and then use iTunes 10.0 or higher, shift-click restore button in iTunes and browse to the custom IPSW your friend made for you.
- Reinstall ultrasn0w to unlock iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Using UltraSn0w
What not to do:
Don't use sn0wbreeze, we won't help you if/when it goes wrong
Don't restore to 4.1 without using custom IPSW- you will lose unlock
Don't download a pre-made custom IPSW from the net, these are often not what they claim to be and you risk installing malware or losing your unlock.
Please read the stickies & search forum before posting! How to report an iTunes restore/update fail in a useful manner
