    Default iOS 4.0.1 upgrade help. 3GS

    Hey new guy here trying to upgrade...

    Anyway, I just bought a second hand 3GS 16gb, it is unlocked and jailbroken, firmware 3.1.2.

    I want to upgrade to iOS4 and this phone has in cydia SHSHs on file for iphone is 3.1, 3.1.2, 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1.

    I've been reading a lot regarding to upgrade to 4.0.1 (because I need Unlocked and JB). BUT I don't have a mac and don't have an original ATT sim card ( the phone came in a box with a ATT sticker) nor do I have a phonebook card ( not even sure they sell those here.)

    Is there any other way I can upgrade to iOS 4.0.1 via Win7 ? Since from my understanding I need pwnage tool to make my own custom OS in order for it to keep activated?

    DO you know what jailbreak was used? 3.1.2 can be jailbroken by redsn0w, pwnagetool, blackra1n and spirit.

    If it is old bootrom, and currently jailbroken by redsn0w, pwnagetool, blackra1n then you can use custom IPSW. That IPSW should be made by pwnagetool (mac only). If you can get a friend to make it the IPSW for you and send you the finished custom IPSW then you can simply shift-click restore in iTunes and use the custom IPSW (because you are currently low level jailbroken). This will get you to 4.0 / jailbroken - forget about 4.0.1 it only changes the way the signal bars are displayed.

    Your other options are to download a pre-made custom IPSW (could include malicious software) or use the unauthorised windows clone - sn0wbreeze (might work, we don't recommend it)

    Sadly dont know what it was unlocked with, is there anyway to find out without contacting the previous owner? I think I can get ahold of a friend who has mac so I can make a custom ISPW, since there seems to be no way around it via windows.

    The premade ipsw does sound a far better solution, surely there has to be a reputable custom made IPSW?

    So I found a couple of custom ipsw, since my box Says AT&T I'm guessing I need one that Says unofficial carrier? Seeing as the orginal carrier is AT&T and mine is one from Honduras central America.



    Ps is this the right forum for this?

    We don't recommend or support random custom IPSW you find on the net, these are warez and often not made with pwnagetool. If you really want to go down this path you need one that includes activation - as you are not with the official carrier that the phone is locked to.

    You have to confirm that you are old bootrom. See PwnageTool 3.1.4 for Mac OS X for details on that.

    custom IPSW will screw up a new bootrom 3GS and you will need to restore to 4.0.2 via DFU mode to fix that. If you do this you won't be able to jailbreak or unlock (until 4.1 is released)

    If I go into DFU mode, will I have to activate once I come out of DFU mode?

    If i'm able to get ahold of a ATT sim card, will it work for activation even if i'm outside of the USA?
    Edit: or if I buy an inactivated att sim card from amazon? like the ones here: http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&keyw...d&link_code=qs
