FYI, ultrasn0w 0.93 will unlock 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.12.01, and 05.13.04 :-).
No one should be using blacksn0w at this point because it's unstable.
blacksn0w RC2 patched by msftguy was excellent but it is no longer necessary at this time.
hi guys, i need some help and i didnt know where to go any more
my iphone 3gs that's running on 3.1.2 has always been starting in recovery mode since the day i bought it because it was locked to 1 network and since then ive been using blackra1n to turn the phone on in case it went off
today my phone froze so i turned it off and tried turning it on using blackra1n like always, but when i connect the phone and start blackra1n it just shows me the blackrain logo ( the dude with the iphones) and after around 5 min turns itself back into recovery mode, so obviously i'm stuck in the recovery mode loop but my only concern is 1 thing!!! pictures from the phone!!!!!!!! i had a dear friend that recently passed away and the last picture of her is on this phone!!! i dont care about the contacts nor anything else!!! i tried irecovery and resn0w 0.9.2 but nothing is helping, i'm willing to send my phone to the end of the world to anyone who is capable of getting the photos out
i tried reading what u guys were saying but honestly i didnt understand half of what u wrote :$ i just hope ther's anyone out there with an idea , please i cant describe how much it would mean.....
te good thing is that at 1 moment my laptop recognized the iphone and started the microsoft picture scanner wizard to transfer the photos but in half of the process the iphone switched off and even what was supposibly transferred disappeared of the pc.... maybe that means something? i dont know...
im just so desperate and pathetic right now ..... :(
The same thing happened to my gf's iPhone and she also had some pictures that she didnt want to lose... so i took the phone to a friend of mine that has a Mac (there are some tools that only work on mac) and after trying to "make it rain" about 20 times at least at one point geohot picture came up and his Photo thing popped up so he quickly grabbed and copied all the pictures to his computer. After that we never managed to do it again and i just restored to 3.1.3. If i were u i would try until the picture scanner wizard comes up and try to get the picture you want. I'm not sure it will work but it did for me (only once, but i stopped trying soon after i got the pictures) and it sounds like it almost did for you.

I tried to jailbreak my phone for the first time just 2 days ago but I wasnt aware of the Spirit jailbreak. So i went to jailbreak with blackra1n on my 3.1.2 3GS, then I attempted to untethered it by accidentally installing Spirit on it.
So now Im stuck at recovery mode loop.
I tried the [[Preventing baseband update as a last-ditch effort]] method because I thought I fitted all the criteria as I didnt save any SHSH except 4.01 or 4.02 but it doesnt seem to work.
What should I do now? Im in a loss. Please help me!!
The last-ditch method only works going to 3.1.3

Put your 3GS into DFU mode, use TinyUmbrella to restore to 4.0.1 with saved SHSH and then use jailbreakme to jailbreak.
