    Default n00b pre spirit question(s)

    Hey there , been ghosting on here for a bit but signed up today , was really hanging off jailbreaking my phone but apples latest refusal to approve a wireless sync app kinda did it for me . So before I attempt this I wanted to ask a bunch of n00b questions and hopefully not brick my phone . This is what I have currently

    1) telus unit , 3gS I believe ( mc131c)

    2) version is at 3.1.2 (been ignoring itunes attempted updates)

    3) firmware 05.11.07

    I attempted blackrain when I first bought it but didn't realize that the version was to new so it just hung and I had to restore the unit , other than that nothing has been run on it , and its not unlocked.

    My question(s) are , does everything above look ok for spirit ? and I see posts about backing up this or "did you make a copy " of that sorta thing
    is there anything that I should be doing before I do this to repair or restore anything if it goes sideways ? sorry for all of the dum*a** questions but
    times is tight so I don't really want to have to buy a new unit so anything I can do in advance to protect it would be kool

    thanks all in advance

    Do you have a SHSH for 3.1.2?

    Is it an old or new bootrom 3GS? If it is old bootrom (which I doubt) then you should use pwnagetool or redsn0w instead of spirit.

    If you can activate legitimately (ie you are on a legitimate contract) and you have not tried any other jailbreak software since you last restored you can jailbreak 3.1.2 with spirit

    Backup (via iTunes) is always a good idea

    Spirit seems pretty stable now. Very few issues reported that can actually be traced back to Spirit itself.

    As always, getting a SHSH backup as early as possible is a good insurance policy. It's been possible for 8 months or so to save your SHSH without jailbreaking.

    Spirit can't screw up your 3GS beyond what a repair can fix. However if you have not got a SHSH for 3.1.2 then you can only restore to 3.1.3
