    Default pls advise 3gs with FW 3.1.2 randomly turns offs

    Hi All,

    4 days ago after just sending a txt mesage my 16GB 3GS just turned off as I was looking at it, purchased on Tesco contract(o2 network) Dec 09, came with 3.1.2 FW plus Modem FW 05.11.07 but must have the new bootrom as evertime I turn it off/or it decides to turn off itself you need to run blakrain again to boot it up..

    After much searching over the last 4 days, the turn off randomly seems to be a common problem with some suggestions on how to fix, I've tried them all but it's still switching off with no warning, even though fully charged..

    My dilema is, if I update to 3.1.3 to try and fix the random turn-off's, which is no guarantee that it will fix the issue then as far as I'm aware there is no way at present to jailbreak ? I am unable to restore to 3.1.2 cos I never done a backup/saved my shsh, plus as I'm on the new bootrom I am unable to load a modified firmware..

    Can anyone confirm if I am correct in what I've said above, and basically I'm screwed, I need to somehow get rid of the random switch offs, which may be a hardware error but the only way to find out for sure is to start with a fresh new installed FW..

    Or If I update to 3.1.3 to get rid of the jailbreak and take back to Tesco for a new phone, do you think there is any chance of the 3.1.2 firmware still being on the phones dished out ?

    Would welcome any suggestions/advise, many thanks in advance..

    Hi ZeRaWaReZ,

    Yep installed 2 camera apps very recent, I've just deleted both of them, I had deleted a load of other apps/winterboard themes etc to try and solve the problem but it turned off again earlier today when out, which was the final straw for me to try and resolve as I need a PC to boot up again..

    Fingers crossed deleting both camera apps may do the trick, will report back if it switches off again. Can anyone recommend a camera app that had no issues ? I'm off to Vegas in 3 weeks which is why I got the 2 camera apps in the first place..

    Can anyone confirm if in any way shape or form is it possible to get past the itunes check which stops me doing a fresh install of the 3.1.2 firmware, as I never saved my shsh.. Would love to start from scratch and not delete apps in the hope that it's going to solve the problem..

    Cheers..
