Need help with my iphone 3GS.
Okay. well i have an iphone 3gs. and the problem is. i really dont know what firmware it was on before it got bricked.
well it was running fine(already jailbroken) until i accidently hit the Erase all memory thingy(wasnt much of an accident though) anyway.. well it went into the apple logo. n then it was hung there for days.
well i did try to jailbreak it my self while looking at sme tutorials online. but it wasnt much of a help. i used redsnow to get it into DFU mode. and after i downloaded the 2,1 firmware. and when i hit the SHIFT key to sellect it.. itunes says that the firmware is not compatible...
and then i gave up.
so here i am now again.. could any 1 PLEASE help me out here?? :\
Firmware not compatible means you accidentally downloaded firmware for a different model device than the one it's trying to restore to. iClarified has good links to all iOS revisions that are direct from Apple's servers -- I recommend you start there. As you noted, erase all content and settings erases iOS as well, and since you're on a 3GS, you will need an SHSH to restore to any version of iOS that is not currently being signed. Do you have any SHSH on file for this device?
