IPHONE CONFIGURATION UTILITY VERSION 2.1 My main concern is, I have a jailbroken 3G S should I have installed it? What effects will this have on my iPhone being that it is jailbroken? I also have iTunes 9 as long as I don't do any 3.1 update to my phone I should be ok, right. thank you..

i have a J/Unlocked iPhone 3gs with3.01. i downloaded iTune 9 and it is working fine: QUESTION: can I download and install the " iPhone Configuration Utility Version 2.1" or will it cause problems with my Jailbreak and Unlocked iPhone.

I have a 3gs on 3.0 FW and I successfully JB'd & unlocked. After JB'g, I wasn't aware I needed to reset the phone before adding other cydia applications. My phone started crashing, but I was able to get it to come back up once. Since then I can't get it to boot up properly. It just keeps displaying the apple logo and the screen goes black. I've tried to run redsnow, but keep ending with an error message toward the end about an incorrect block count for file data_a rk.plist (it should be 1 insteas of 0) Invalid index key (4, 1) ** Rebuilding Catalog B-tree. disk0s2s1: alignment error. ** The volume Data could not be repaired . Mounting rootfs as read-write... Mounting devfs... Mounting disk0s2s1... ERROR! It stops at this point and staying at the program screen and does nothing further. Please Help. I have not updated through I tunes because I don't want to increase the baseband. My phone is not operable. Please assist???

Wait, are you saying that you are profiting off of the work of others and then have the nerve to ask a question here about that work? On behalf of those that have not told you to do so already, I encourage you to fuck off and do your own work asswipe. Thanks in advance.
jorgealina - September 13, 2009 at 12:41pm
wow does it look like i care what u said....i still make money off it anyways so i guess ill be the winner regardless of what u say or do
dt - September 23, 2009 at 9:56am
You will make money for sure but you will always be a scumbag. So if you can live with being a toilet bug, so can I. Maybe that money will come in handy if you or your family gets cancer or something. What goes around comes around. Please kindly fuck off and die. I really mean it.

If you don't have the original sim card the iphone will not be recognised by itunes. It seems you are waiting on hacktivation, which will come on stream IF and WHEN DevTeam find the necessary exploits for the jailbreak and unlock. If you don't have the original simcard your goosed, you wont even be able to use it as an ipod. Lesson learned here folks, always better to wait until your told to update like with all updates to iTunes and the iPhone
p..e - September 11, 2009 at 5:10am
I presumed you were 3GS, you have a much better chance of getting your jailbreak back but your bootloader has been updated so there is nowhere to go for now. Wait on news from the Dev's, they will either exploit the new bootloader or enable some way of downgrading the bootloader. Either way you have nowhere to go for now but you must have faith!

marbie - September 11, 2009 at 3:46am
whew, i just hope iphonedev team will finally solve the problem, anyway, i am planning to buy Iphone 3G , probably it will be an at&t prepaid kit, and will jailbreak/unlock it. Does iphone 3g also affected by the recent problem faced by iphone 3gs users?
Liz - September 11, 2009 at 3:43am
I want a straight answer. Here's my dillemma. I am worried that even if I will be using Itunes 8.2 version and OS 3.0 and the appropriate redsnow program and ipsw, the Iphone 3Gsthat I am planning to buy by October will not be jailbreakable/unlockable? Am I getting the right infos? Pls someone help me.
p..e - September 11, 2009 at 3:57am
There is no straight answer, maybe things will become clearer by the time October comes. If you can, buy the phone today as it will not be factory 3.1 and you will have a better chance of a jailbreak and unlock.
Zeljko - September 11, 2009 at 5:59am
That was a good answer.
jorgealina - September 12, 2009 at 12:52am
you can jailbreak and unlock it
liquidator - September 13, 2009 at 11:28am
so , pe, your'e saying that I can buy an 3gs today (9-13-09) and still be able to jailbreak and unlock without a problem (hopefully)?

Unfortunately because now that iTunes checks in with Apple everytime a restore is performed, the tutorial to obtain the iBEC file is now useless :-(. I have tried on several machines with several versions of iTunes, and no success. I am still on OS 3.0.1 and have not yet upgraded to 3.1. If anyone knows how to get the iBEC still, I'd love to know! Thanks :-)

If any one not care about wheter your phone be jailbreak/unlock. easiest way to upgrade your 3GS using Itune 8 restore your firmware 3.0.1 (do not jailbreak). then upgrade your your itune 9. then last step just update your iphone firmware to 3.1. I have done this on my and it work just fine.
Allen - September 11, 2009 at 1:21am
The problem is that for me, iTunes 8 (even when running on Leopard 10.5) also checks Apple's server to make sure that it's the latest version of the iPhone OS that wants to be restored. For instance, if I disconnect from internet and try to restore, it won't restore. It gives me an error until I reconnect to the web. Does that not happen to you?
p..e - September 11, 2009 at 6:10am
This is precisely why everybody was told 100's of times to get the files months ago, if you didn't then you have no one else to blame but yourself. Sit tight, with a bit of luck the devs will figure it out. What is the big panic to go to 3.1 people, it's features are not worth jeopardizing your phone functioning as it has done for months now. SIT TIGHT
Allen - September 11, 2009 at 11:46am
Noone is blaming anyone (at least I'm not). It's cool, these guys ALWAYS find a way, which is so incredible to me. I think I'm still having a hard time understanding exactly what these 2 files do, or are for. There are so many tutorials on getting them, but I don't understand how they'll help in a situation like this. I think what someone should figure out is how to route the iTunes s/w verification service to a DB which Saurik or someone else can create. That way, he can tell the service "ok, 3.0.1 is the latest s/w" and that's it, no problems. I know it's not as simple as that, but it's an idea.
peter - September 10, 2009 at 10:28pm
ok i just update my iphone 3g with the 3.0.1 firmware from apple. I know i shouldnt do this.Now it means that i cannot jailbreack my iphone anymore and i need to wait for a new release???? thanks
