    Okay, well since you haven't made an upgrade (Good Job!) then go into iTunes, hold shift and click Restore, and select your custom .ipsw and after it restores, go from their. Hope that helped.

    Much Luck,

    This ONLY works if you have an old bootrom 3GS - @gharris11589 did you have to re-run blackra1n or redsn0w every time you restarted the phone?

    This takes a while to process - but you will only get OS 3.1.3 SHSH - the door closed for OS 3.1.2 SHSH on 4th February.

    If he got it with 3.1.2 installed doesn't it have to have an older bootrom? Because if he HAD 3.1.3 and downgraded to 3.1.2 the he would have to have the older bootroms anyways? Not trying to argue Olethros, just wanted to clear this up for my own information.

    Thanks Much,

    But @Captainnegatory when i tried to install using a custom firmware it said "The iphone firmware could not be installed because the firmware is corrupt" I'm using the custom 3.1.2 for 3gs that i found at Iphone heat (Download iPhone OS 3.1.2 Custom Firmware (IPSW Files) for iPhone 3GS, 3G, 2G | iPhoneHeat) Idk what to do

    @Olethros - I did not have to re-run everytime i restarted my phone it just worked and from the research i've done on the topic i have the old bootrom (IBOOT-359.3) so i dont know what the problem is

    PLEASE HELPP i hope im doing something wrong

    Also my baseband is 5.11.7 if that helps

    The new bootrom was released (week 41 - 5th october) around the same time as OS 3.1.2 (8th october) - so it is more likely that the phone has the new bootrom than old.

    There is a grey period from week 41 to week 45 when a new phone could have old or new bootrom.

    I don't entirely understand your second statement. If you have a SHSH for 3.1.2 you can downgrade to 3.1.2 from 3.1.3 (but not baseband) with both old or new bootrom.

    However the original poster is not running 3.1.3, they are running jailbroken/unlocked 3.1.2

    @Olethros Sorry, I'm getting my Bootloader/roms/Basebands all mixed up now, it makes sense and thanks for clearing it up!

    @gharris11589 Looked around in other posts and some people had a similar problem. It seems a few of them have fixed their problem by going into DFU Mode and doing a restore of the 3.1.2 Stock Firmware. The only thing left I can think of is the above option, heres some links if you choose that path.

    DFU Mode: iClarified - iPhone - How to Put an iPhone Into DFU Mode
    Restore Stock Firmware: Is there a way to update/restore my iPhone with a selected version of iPhone firmware? | The iPhone FAQ

    Hope This Helped,

    @captainNegatory - Apple isnt signing stock 3.1.2 so when i try to put it on there it says "this device isn't eligible for the requested build" because apple isn't signing 3.1.2 anymore only 3.1.3. My SHSH isnt on file in cydia either so idk what to do

    is there a way to upgrade to 3.1.3 since its already jailbroken and unlocked shouldnt i be able to upgrade in a way where it will still be unlocked??!

    I suggest he go into DFU mode and check the bootrom version. This takes a few seconds.

    If old bootrom - exit DFU mode and restore custom IPSW

    If new bootrom, a SHSH is required to restore original Apple IPSW, today you can only get a 3.1.3 IPSW so I would suggest they check if they have a 3.1.2 SHSH backed up with Cydia before trying to restore 3.1.2. See Hack that Phone - iPhone 3G S: Restoring "forbidden" firmware for more details.

    Custom IPSW is the ONLY way. How did you check you had old bootrom?
