Jailbroken Unlocked (custom) 3.1.2 w/ stored SHSH stuck in Bootloop & Wont Restore
I'm really getting nervous at the moment because my 3GS is behaving extremely weird. But I'll let it to you to figure out what might be the reason. First of all some information about what I'm running:
3G S on custom 3.1.2. (from a good 3.1.1.) with old bootloader and SHSH on file
Jailbroken & Unlocked Tethered via blackweather
So what has happened was rather easy.
My signal died once again (it does that occasionally -.-) and didnt regain signal ever since. I switched to flight mode and it wouldnt leave it since then, didnt react to any key pressing or anything else, so I rebooted with the hard reboot method using the two keys for 10sec.
Soooo... I did a reboot, connected to blackra1n aaaaaaand.... got stuck as the phone rebooted. Geohot remained on my screen, the phone didnt react on any keys but was recognized by the computer and I was able to save my contacts.
Bad luck I decided, rebooted again (hard reboot), run blackrain again and zaaaaack... same thing.
Well then, I got my 3.1.2. SHSH stored with cydia so I decided to restore to my good old custom 3.1.2 like I did many times before... aaad oups... the phone obviously doesnt enter restore mode. iTunes shows "preparing phone for restore" for like 10 minutes and then fails on error 1600/1601/1604.
So if it's not entering restore mode properly - lets try DFU mode. Thought - done and failed me right away.
Right now the phone in restore mode takes iTunes 10minutes to fail on the 160x errors, in DFU mode it fails right away.
Well... even if my 3.1.2. SHSH is stored maybe apple went mad and found another way to block that. So I sn0wbreezed a 3.1.3. and tried the same with that one.
Yet same effect. 160x errors either right away, or after a 10 minut pause on trying to prepare the phone for restore.
So I am absolutely clueless about what do with the phone so I could restore to one of my custom firmwares and stay on the old bootrom&loader.
Do you guys have any idea?
Thanks so much!

if you have your 3.1.2 on file with cydia, you should be able to restore to stock firmware 3.1.2.
you have to change your hosts file on your computer so it points to
You can read more about it here: Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik)
If you have an iphone 3gs with new bootrom, you cannot restore custom firmware to it.
You are confused about bootrom and bootloader.
I read your post and i'm so confused because you are using the wrong terminology.
Forget about bootloader. Do you have a new bootrom or not ?. Do you need to run blackra1n to kick start the phone everything you reboot the device. If so, then you have a new bootrom. In such case, you CANNOT use custom firmware to restore to it AND you cannot use pwnagetool to jailbreak the device.

Thanks for the concern and sorry about the confusion.
I got a tethered JB, so I need to kickstart my phone with blackra1n after each reboot. Blackrain automatically jailbreaks and unlocks me from there.
I got the 3.1.2. SHSH on file and pointed the gs.apple.com to saurik.
Are you saying, that I should try to restore an untouched original 3.1.2.? I believed this would leave me without the possibility to use blackra1n?
In the meanwhile I am confused as well. I know I had to use blackra1n after each reboot, but it was jailbroken and unlocked perfectly well after that (each time). Does that work with a original 3.1.2 with new bootrom?
