    Default Tutorial : Which Bootrom ( Boot loader ) do i have 3GS ?

    Lot of people asking this question, though i would help out.

    Method 1

    Put into DFU mode, robotic instructions here, lol.
    On your computer... Start > Control Panel > System > Hardware > Device Manager
    Find "Universal Serial Bus (USB) Controller", subitem Apple Mobile Device USB Driver.
    Right click, choose Properties, go to Details, select
    Device Instance Path from the dropdown box. The end of this info string will tell you the bootrom version, e.g. iBoot-359.3.2

    iBoot-359.3.2 is the NEW BOOTROM
    iBoot-359.3 is the OLD BOOTROM

    Method 2

    Install usbview link here
    Put the iPhone 3GS in DFU Mode
    Run the Application usbview
    Check if you find:

    iBoot-359.3.2 - then its the new bootrom
    iBoot-359.3 - is the old one

    source

    DFU Mode

    1. Connect your iPhone to your computer.
    2. Turn iPhone off.
    3. Hold power and home together for 10 seconds (exactly).
    4. Release power but keep holding home until the computers beeps (observed on a PC) as a USB device is recognized.
    5. A few seconds later iTunes should detect your iPhone.
    6. If the Restore Logo is present on the screen, you are in Recovery Mode, not DFU

    Good to see this in it's own thread. You neglected to mention how to put the phone into DFU mode

    Also, very useful - the ECID can also be obtained via the same process. 3GS owners can request their SHSH via The Firmware Umbrella without even jailbreaking.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
