    Default 3GS New Bootrom Upgrade Question

    Hey Guys,

    First post but I've done quite a bit of poking about and am still trying to wrap my head around all of this.

    I have a 16GB 3GS xx944xxxxxx running iOS ver 3.1.2 jailbroken with blackra1n (tethered)

    So to the question, from what I can tell the only to way upgrade & pwn is with a custom ipsw? I'm not that advanced of a user and I'd rather not mess around with that stuff.

    I do have all my SHSH blobs saved in Cydia for 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, & 4.0.1, and was able to save them to disk with TinyUmbrella. Is it possible to restore to 4.0.1 official ipsw by modifying the host file to point to saurik's server? Is this method recommended here?

    Thanks in advance for the advice

    Dude if you running 3.1.2 tethered then your months behind in jailbreaking, all you have to do is put device in DFU, start the TinyServer and restore to 4.0.1, then go to jailbreakme.com on the device and you have untethered 4.0.1 jailbreak

    Also, install saurik's pdf patch from cydia afterwards to close the hole that jailbreakme uses.

    Is this more than just editing my local host file to point to saurik's servers? Can you elaborate on this part?

    Also, do I have to worry about removing any parts of the blackra1n jb or any packages before restoring a new FW?

    You can either restore via saurik's server or use TinyUmbrella 's TSS server to restore (from a locally cached SHSH).

    They both work.. I like TinyUmbrella better as it offers more control/flexibility
