hey guys is there any chance that someone would use pwnage tool to restore and activate a iphone 3GS with 3.0.1 deleted firmware????that the 3.0.1 is deleted and there is no current firmware installed

Hello, a new user to macs, i created a custom firmware ipsw, my only issue is Im on official carrier, so I didnt click on Activate, however I do travel so I need my phone to unlocked aswell. I noticed 'Enable Baseband' is greyed out, does this mean my phone will not have its baseband updated to the 3.1's version? Just want to know if I use PwanageTool is there even a chance to update your baseband to 3.1's Also do I lose tethering option on 3.1? Would appreciate a prompt response For ref: Im on 3.0.1 JB

Hi, If you are on 3.01 and have never upgraded to 3.1 official, then yes, you can use ultrasn0w from cydia to use the phone unlocked overseas. Do not upgrade to stock apple firmware, always use pwnage tool, otherwise your baseband will get upgraded and you will lose the unlock, regardless if you are on an official carrier. Pwnage also maintains the tethering settings. I am from the UK on unofficial carrier (orange UK) and am unlocked and have tethering enabled on 3.1, thanks to pwnage! Hope this helps.

Check bittorent guys, there are shedloads of custom ipsw files out there, they are all generic, only dependent on iphone model (iphone 2g, 3g, 3gs).

Hi All, Seeing alot of posts here, some with contradicting info... Simple question, I have a 3GS, never pwned, but jailbroken via redsn0w to 3.0.1. I've built a custom 3.1 pwn file on my Mac, golden question, as it has never been pwned and JB via redsnow, do I connect via DFU OR Restore mode? Please advise!!
Carl - October 5, 2009 at 10:03am
I upgraded over the weekend from 3.0 to 3.1. I was JB on 3.0 with redsn0w and never pwn. I created and custom 3.1 pwn file and updated via Restore mode. My phone is working file with no issues.

So now do I still need to capture the two files "ibec and ibess" for the future use? Thanks

Might need some help here. Got the 3GS on release day. Jailbroke the 3.0 OS using my windows pc (this was late July). Phone screwed up a day after apple stopped signing certificates, and I had to completely restore. Now I'm on 3.1. Is it possible for me to jailbreak my phone still (I have a MacBook). Or am I just SOL?
Dan - October 3, 2009 at 5:38am
Got 3GS 3.0.1 out of box not jailbroken, can not jailbreak as Apple not signing anymore, does this work for me? Or do I need to wait? Cheers

Are there any Tethering options here in the US with a jailbroken 3GS on 3.1? I'm currently running jailbroken 3.0 on my 3GS and was thinking about upgrading, but I don't want to lose the carrier hack that allowed tethering. Thoughts? PS: Thanks for your hard work!!!
Carl - October 5, 2009 at 10:09am
I was also JB on 3.0 with the carrier hack to allow for tethering. After I updated to 3.1 via pwn, I still have my tethering.

Thanks.. Just waiting for a few others to use this file, so I don't brick my iphone, then I'm in. Or I may just hackintosh and try it myself.

it works, i know trusting someone with your phone is alittle scary, but i had my fingers crossed the whole time while doing this myself. I made the custom ipsw file and can prove i used it on my phone, check back on that blog i will post a screenshot showing im on 3.1 with baseband 4.26.08

It works! I'll restore all my stuff in a few mins.. For the MMS, should I see some picture attach option in the Messages app? I don't.. Also, I hate that pineapple logo. On the Info screen, I see Not Available for Network.. don't remember what it even said before though...
mike - October 2, 2009 at 10:03pm
For MMS you should get an option in itunes to update your carrier settings, make sure itunes is up to date if it is not working. The pineapple logo I did for myself, sorry if you dont like it I didnt have a nice custom one made. For your network mine says not available but its not an issue still works fine, before it said att.(possible fix in the future?) To fix your carrier logo not showing up next to your signal bars, open cydia and install MakeItMine, This is just a cosmetic issue.

You Da Man, Mike! Now I just need to finish this new itunes update to 9.0.1.. (I wish they'd update less frequently and smaller), and then restore all my songs & movies, etc.. Awesome!
