Just noticed that my phone says I "This device has a 3.1 ECID SHSH on file" I'm assuming this means later on if apple ever goes to 4.xx and there is no unlock or jailbreak that I can go back to 3.1. Hopefully by then there is a GOOD and EASY/clear way of jailbreaking and unlocking a 3gs 3.1 on windows...


Does this make sense? I WISH mine said "This device has a 3.0 EICD SHSH on file" Like a buddy of mine does! Oh well!

when I got 3.1 it somehow kept my tethering, just fyi but kinda weird because I thought the tethering was enabled using a carrier file and I thought the carrier file for the MMS would have overridden the last one.

Im about to throw my phone out the window though. It was dead last night, charged it for about an hour and it was full. Went to bed, no phonecalls or texts and wake up and its dead dead.

My battery dies FAST TOO! but I carry a charger every where. LEAVE IT plugged in all night, why only charge for an hour?

Look into buying that external battery pack that fits behind the phone like a case. Its pretty neat... I'll find the name of it when this guy comes in for work today.

That IS weird that you still have tethering too... I THINK the 5.5 version carrier update is what disables the tethering, What do you have? setting>general>about Carrier mine say AT&T 5.0. the new MMS Carrier is 5.5 which I beleive disables tethering

I have one charger at the house and one here at work and Kati needed to charge her phone so I took it in the bedroom with us, otherwise I would have left it on all night. It was bad when I first upgraded but it had been getting worse and worse.

Oh and Im on carrier 5.5 so that is kinda weird.

REAL weird, all i read is people who have updated to 3.1 have lost there tethering, BUT Then again I have read that as long as you were JB when you updated or had tethering off or something that it stayed on.... idk, Thats cool that you still have it with 3.1 you should feel lucky, I read more not having it with 3.1 than ones with it

That 2nd battery pack that fits behind the phone is called a "Mophie"

Here is one.. pretty sweet things has a toggle switch to use down the phone battery first then flip the switch and the external will take over. PLug it into the new charging port and it charges both internal and external batteries

get on youtube and you can do it...my wife's had 3.1 and i did the jail-break through itunes and i'm running microsoft vista.

here's a video on how to do it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTJzNjfEUVo&feature=fvsr

he has the link for the jailbreak file in his sidebar.

note: when you put the phone into "dfu" mode, it has to have a light behind the screen (not just black) or you will get a "1600 error"...the easy way to get it into dfu mode with the light on is download this program called "ih8snow"...run that program before you load the jailbreak through itunes and it will work like a champ.

here is a link to the ih8snow program:
http://ttapple.net/index.htm

easy as pie.

do this, and it will work:

1. back up your iphone
2. download the ih8snow file here: http://ttapple.net/index.htm
3. download the 3.1 jailbreak file here: http://bit.ly/Kay53
4. follow the steps to jailbreak in this youtube video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PTJzNjfEUVo&feature=fvsr

5. when it tells you to put your phone in "dfu mode", run the "ih8snow" program that you downloaded in step 2 and follow the directions to put it in dfu mode. when it's in dfu mode, play the video again and follow the directions to jailbreak...it's pretty simple...all you have to do is press "shift" and click on "restore", it wll let you choose which file to restore with, you just click on the file that you downloaded in step 3 above and let it restore. when it's done, just restart your iphone and you'll notice that you have "cydia" in your apps...you're jailbroken. it takes about 5 minutes.

did you try using the "ih8snow" program to put it into dfu mode? i kept getting 1600 errors everytime until i did that...after i used the ih8snow to put it into dfu mode, it worked like a charm the first time.

I havent if your talking to me...I dont believe ANYBODY has jailbroke or unlocked a TRUE 3.1. All they are doing is taking a JB 3.0 to a custom 3.1..

Was talking to stanggt40...I read the forums on modmyi and agree with you, but if something ever happens and you have to restore your phone as we have them now, you will lose your JB since it will only allow 3.1.

yes, my wife's phone had/has the 3.1 firmware, but it's a 3g...not a 3gs. i used the steps above and it worked perfectly. when i get home, i can take a screen shot of the settings menu that still shows the 3.1 firmware, if you like. i'm still new to all of this, but it worked perfectly for me.

also, her "carrier" shows 5.5 and she has mms, but her tethering doesn't exist, where as mine (3gs with 3.0.1 jailbroken) has the 5.0 carrier file and i have tethering and mms.

are you talking about 3g or 3gs? my wife's firmware, before i started doing the jailbreak, was 3.1. i used the youtube video that i posted, but i kept getting "1600" errors until i did the "dfu" mode with that "ih8snow" program. when i did that, it worked flawlessly the first time. by the way, it's jailbroken, but it isn't unlocked.

apparently a new jailbreak for the 3gs with 3.1+ has been released via "blackrain"...below is a link to a video on how to do it:

http://theiphonepress.com/

i have two iphones jailbroken on 3.0.1, so i haven't tried it, but the guy that puts out blackrain has a really good reputation for jailbreaking phones...apparently it's only available on windows currently.

i just did the blackrain jailbreak on my friend's 32gb 3gs with 3.1 and it worked great. it installs blackrain as an app, then you install cydia, icy, and rock from it. it took about 5 minutes to do...he's on at&t, so i didn't try to unlock it via ultrasnow as it's not needed, so i don't know if that works with this jailbreak or not.

I have an 3G and a 3Gs
Both never been unlocked or jailbroken
Both at 3.0 firmware
Both 04.26.08 modem firmware

What combinations of programs updates do I need to run to preserve the future ability to unlock? I don't care about jailbreaks, did it several times on my older iPhones and found little benefit. I just want to be able to unlock the phones in the future in case I decide to sell them whenever we upgrade next.

From reading around it looks like I need to do this:
-Jailbreak 3.0 and install cydia using redsnow (phones are jailbroken)
-run ultrasnow from cydia (phone is now unlocked)
-make new 3.1.2 ipsw using pwnage tool and not updating baseband
-shift+restore through itunes with new ipsw

Am I doing this correct? I used to jailbreak/unlock all the time and have bros/sisters running 3 of my old phones on tmobile so I know how to do this just haven't kept up with all the names of the new programs and crap.

i haven't done the jailbreak with pwnage tool, and i haven't done the new 3.1.2 just yet, but from what i understand, you do the following: (for windows)

1. download the 3.1.2 ispw (click here to download the firmware: http://www.redmondpie.com/download-t...-3.1.2-aga809/ )
2. download blackrain (click here to download blackrain http://blackra1n.com/ )
3. connect your iphone and open itunes
4. press "shift" and click "restore"
5. select the 3.1.2 ispw that you downloaded and restore this firmware to your phone.
6. after the restore is complete (leaving your iphone connected), close itunes, open blackrain and click "make it rain" when it pops up.
7. when it's done (after installation of blackrain and your iphone restarts) it will give a pop up saying that it's done. unplug your iphone from the computer and open the new app on the iphone titled "blackrain"
8. when you open blackrain on your iphone, it gives you the option to download cydia, icy, and rock...select the one(s) that you want and select "install"

once they're installed, you're done...

**note: if you're using windows vista, when you get to step 7, instead of "double clicking" blackrain, right click it and select "run as administrator" or something similar, and it will load fine. some people were having issues if they didn't do that.

What combinations of programs updates do I need to run to preserve the future ability to unlock? I don't care about jailbreaks, did it several times on my older iPhones and found little benefit. I just want to be able to unlock the phones in the future in case I decide to sell them whenever we upgrade next.

From reading around it looks like I need to do this:
-Jailbreak 3.0 and install cydia using redsnow (phones are jailbroken)
-run ultrasnow from cydia (phone is now unlocked)
-make new 3.1.2 ipsw using pwnage tool and not updating baseband
-shift+restore through itunes with new ipsw

if you have a mac, you can follow the directions above and use blackrain for mac (both versions are available on the website) when you "restore" you press "option" and click "restore" on a mac, in lieu of "shift" on windows.

if you want to use pwnage tool to do the jailbreak (mac only) just follow the directions here: http://www.redmondpie.com/jailbreak-...indows-anu759/

I guess I should have mentioned that I have mac osx and windows.

So I can just get the new pwnagetool 3.1.4 and build the new ipsw without updating the baseband. I guess I should jailbreak too and have my ECID stored through Cydia just in case.

Thanks for the help.

easiest thing in the world. you download the program, plug your iphon/ipod touch in, and click the only button the program has "make it rain" and it jailbreaks the phone, then click on cydia (only) and you're pretty much done. don't install icy and cydia at the same time, it fucks up (trust me).

the program is called black rain.

http://blackra1n.com/

http://www.ithinkdiff.com/jailbreak-...ith-blackra1n/

you just download it, and click the button when your ipod is attached, done. Literally takes 25 seconds. Now, I don't believe blackrain will unlock a 3Gs, but I'm pretty sure when a app becomes available to do so, you'll find it on cydia (which blackrain installs).

I jailbroke my ipod touch 3.1.2 with blackrain, worked perfectly. (just install cydia though, don't install icy AND cydia or it's a hassle)

Of course, it doesn't have near as much to unlock.

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!

It still installs all the same stuff man, its just some of the code isn't utilized. The iphone takes about the same time - also depends on how many apps your iphone has, how utilized it is.

did you "update" to 3.1.2? i don't think that you can unlock it just yet, but i'm sure that you will be able to shortly. when it's available, you can get the program directly from cydia on your iphone...ultrasnow, i believe.

i've never tried to save vids, but i can save pictures just fine. as bad as i hate to lose tethering, i may just go to 3.1 so i can use voice dialing with my bluetooth. i really don't use the tethering, but it's nice that it's there if i want to use it. besides, there are jailbreak apps that let you tether anyway. it sucks that they give it to you then take it away...

3.0.1 JB has everything I need except the saving video part. I can save pics just fine. I'm trying to look for a 3rd party app or something that will let me save video. Don't feel like upgrading to 3.1.

You can as long as you are still on firmware 3.0.x right now or if you updated to 3.1.x using the pwnage tool and did not update the baseband.

The 3.1.x updates have new modem firmware that can not be unlocked as of yet. If you are still on 3.0 then use the Pwnage Tool (3.1.4 version i think) to make a new ipsw that will not update your baseband. Have it install cydia and jailbreak the phone, then go to cydia and use ultrasn0w. that should unlock it. You'll need mac osx to use the latest Pwnage Tool.

Basically if your modem firmware is still at 04.26.08 then it is still possible.

yea thats what i read last night... they already have the firmwares hacked already for you lol...

i am going to do a friends phone he is on ATT so its not as important for him to unlock his phone... i did the blackra1n on my moms phone and it was jsut as easy as purplera1n... i like the "rock" app or whatever that app is that is supposed to be like cydia.. but i think its better...
