Q & A for iPhone 3GS Jailbreaking Unlocking :

  • I Saved the ECID signature on 3.0.1 : you can always go back, restore the same firmware and run the jailbreak on this
  • I Didn’t Saved the ECID signature on 3.0.1 : You must remain with the 3.0.1 update without until it is released on the 3.1 Jailbreak
  • I updated to 3.1 but has saved the ECID via Cydia : You can go back to 3.0 and run the Jailbreak any time. To downgrade follow our guide for Downgrading iPhone 3GS from 3.1 to 3.0 with Cydia SHSH.However you aren’t eligible for Ultrasn0w anymore because your baseband is updated..
  • I updated to 3.1 but didn’t saved the ECID via Cydia : Sorry to say but you can not do anything without Jailbreak and must remain locked until the release of the new tool with the exploits of Chronic Dev Team.

Have Something To Say ?

    I actually can use Tethering with the 3.1 firmware. I simply called FIDO and asked them if they could add it on to my Data Plan. Since I got a 6GB Data Plan, they enabled the tethering for free. Just read that they are working on something called greenp0sion or something that might be able to jailbreak 3.1! Apple controls these phones and I hate that, if they offered more custom and open source there would not be this jailbreak cat and mouse game.. Starting to wish I never an iphone now!

    Well Said…couldnt have said it better myself.

    OH MY GOD… what idiocy. I will say it ONE last time. TETHERING with the Iphone 3G and 3GS with official apple 3.1 upgrade or out of the Box 3G or 3GS IS DEAD..DEAD..DEAD. The Dev team WILL NEVER…NEVER…NEVER bring it back. A few and I mean a VERY few people either updated using ONLY Dev-team software or did not update at all. Those people can still tether. But NO ONE and I mean NO ONE else (which is pretty much all the rest of us) can tether ever again. There is NO HACK, NO WORKAROUND, or NO TRICK that will ever bring tethering back. News flash I work at apple so I know what I’m talking about. The ONLY important thing about any of these phones is tethering all the rest is bullshi*t…AND TETHERING with and up to date iphone is DEAD..PROVE ME WRONG..

    And one more thing: How the hell do they expect you to restore from 3.1 to 3.0 if you just got your iphone with 3.1 and did not even get cydia on it yet? Again, this Jailbreak is for people with 3.0, and want to update without apples trap firmware. It allows you to make custom. So for everyone stuck on 3.1 This will not jailbreak you.

  4. frankcostein October 3, 2009 Reply

    Apple has WON, since all the iphones are shipping with 3.1 and they know only a small number of people actually have 3.0 or 3.01 and did not jailbreak in time to capture 3.0 shsh, ecid, whatever.. Just face it, Apple made a mistake with 3.0 firmware, but they learned and fixed it and I believe the Dev.Team is not good enough to Beat Apple, so all they did was offer a chessy update for 3.0 jailbreakers.. YOU SUCK!

    Jailbreak for 3.1? I knew it was too good to be true. This update is only good for those who are already jailbreak and want to update to 3.1 jailbreak. What about the people who got there iphone with 3.1 or were forced to upgrade cause there phone was bricked? It’s a step forward but useless for me, as I am stuck on 3.1. Jailbreak 3.1 my ass, it should say “Upgrade from 3.0 jailbreak to 3.1 jailbreak” since it really does not jailbreak 3.1!

    I was so worried of not being able to Jailbreak my iphone 3GS again, that I’ll happily wait a month if I knew it was going to be JB again!

    However, I’m just confused on wether of not the JB will be possible with a 3GS phone /w 05.11.07 baseband.
    I think Cydia/Saurik got my ECID info, since I answered “yes” when Cydia asked me to “make my life easier”… but I haven’t been able to restore to 3.0, even in DFU mode and everything.

    So I’m really counting on this Jailbreak! Hurray for the people who put their time and brain behind the project!

    Hey there..
    I bought my iphone 3 gs n its factory unlock…which means i have nt save my shsh or ecid or anything..
    Does it mean i must wait for dev team to come out with a new jailbreak or i can use this jailbreak???

    I have a 3GS 3.0 iphone, the other night I was trying to unlock with purplera1n but when I ran it the first time it took the phone to restore mode and if I try running it again, purplera1n won’t do anything and stays in a ‘waiting for phone’ mode. The phone is stuck on the restore setting (black background with usb cable indicating to connect to itunes); I have NOT updated to 3.1 so I assume the phone’s firmware and everything else is still that of 3.0; I just can get it out of restore mode.
    The phone has not been jailbroken nor unlocked before, since it was ruined (restore mode) when trying to jailbrake; and when read that this will not work with OTB 3gs phones my stomach flipped.
    Please give me your thoughts/suggestions, i do NOT want to update since it might be worse. Where I am, a locked phone is like having nothing at all. I’m desperate. Thanks!

    Hi I have a 3GS running 3.0 and I manually saved my ECID/IBESS/IBEC files but did NOT happen open cydia those couple days when you could save your ecid with cydia.
    The battery life on my phone is awful so I wanted to restore it to a clean not jailbroken 3.0 state, is this not possible for me?
    can a jailbroken 3.0 phone still accept a 3.0 ipsw even if apple is not signing them anymore?

    I know you can’t go back from 3.1 to 3.0, but can you go from a jb 3.0 to 3.0 using itunes?

    OK so I have an iPhone 3GS FACTORY UNLOCKED and my modem firmware is 05.11.07 not the 04.26.08 can I jailbreak my 3GS yet or no?

  11. Mikael October 2, 2009 Reply

    Was really happy reading this, but now reading this does not apply for 3.1 3gs “the once that u buy that come with 3.1” Made me abit going crybaby this morning =(


    Well keep my hope up for Dev Team =)

    OR NOT?

    Dylan, there’s a pwnagetool out already for the 3g 3.1 firmware.

    God I hope this comes soon. I was also stuck at the apple after jailbreaking my 3.0 3GS.. The only option I had was a restore/update to 3.1

    Since I’m a t-mobile user, it’s back to the blackberry until a JB comes out.

  14. Charith October 2, 2009 Reply

    well this is good news. small clarifications thou..
    so does this means that this new tool will jailbreak and unlock the 3GS?
    does this mean that it’ll change the baseband while keeping the OS 3.1? won’t that be a problem?

    let me know if anyone here have any clue…

    The 3g has been doable for a week or two now. Jb my girlfriends 3g 3.1 last week. As for me iv got a 3gs 3.1. Just waiting fof the jb.

    New Twitter update by Cpich3g. Does this mean people without the relevent files saved won’t be able to jb????
    Cheers. Mayo

    cpich3g Further to my last post, the 3gs 3.1 jailbreak does not apply to OTB or non-downgradable 3.1 device

    will this work on a iphone 3g?

    I recently bought an iphone officially unlocked but already preloaded with firmware 3.1. So definitely i don’t have my
    ECID captured to Cydia. I just want to jailbreak not unlock. Hope will new patch can allow me to use cydia

  18. OlouWa October 2, 2009 Reply

    First of all, apologize for my english.

    I got a 3Gs JB, unlocked (red&ultra-sn0w) on 3.0.1 BUT I can’t use it because the phone is deactivate, ask for passcode and not let me enter the passcode.

    The ONLY thing I can do is a restore from iTunes and then I’m going on 3.1. NO WAY

    Do you think if DEVTEAM release the new PT, jailbreak will erase the passcode or not?
    Maybe you don’t understand because I explain badly?

    Thanks by advance

    @3gs; I don’t think so…. if you have upgraded to 3.1 by accident, you have another baseband (05.11.07 instead 04.26.08) — but wait and see….

  20. Gal October 2, 2009 Reply

    Would it work on a device that has not been upgraded to 3.1?
    my device is stuck on apple logo screen but not upgraded yet..(3GS)

  21. Ryan October 2, 2009 Reply

    I’ve been jailbroken for 3 months now and I’ve saved my ibec and ibss as well as the ecid, yet I had no clear reason why I shouldve done this. The q&a section just clarified it completely. I always wondered what would happen if my phone crapped out and it’s good to know I can get it back

  22. Elmo October 2, 2009 Reply

    Hey there im A Bit confused since u made that update. What does it mean? Is 3.1 gs breakable or just if u have the eicd Code or shsh file? Or will it Be à Version without that crap for everyone?

  23. Jaideep October 1, 2009 Reply

    hi all

    seems that I have same case as 3GS (Will this work for phones whom have upgraded to 3.1 by accident without having saved their ECID SHSH).
    I ended up locking my 3GS phone unaware of all this techno stuff and restored to factory settings.
    Am afraid I dont follow the above stated but need help from anyone who can help me please.
