Hi Sir,

i am iPhone 3GS user and i would like to upgrade my iPhone 3GS firmware 3.1.3 and baseband 05.12.01 and official carries(any SIM)to iOS4 and jailbreak iOS4 with Spirit or other tools? please recommend the best tools to jailbreak iOS4


iPhoneHeat June 25, 2010, 6:42 am

If you’re jailbroken with Spirit, you cannot jailbreak iOS 4

RIO June 25, 2010, 4:40 pm

it might be better just to hold back and wait for the update custom firmware. should take around another week lets see if they jailbreak iphone 4 that will give enough info for 3gs new bootrom

Ijann June 25, 2010, 8:07 pm

Is it safe to JB with the latest iTune?

godfred30 June 25, 2010, 9:11 pm

please test the IOS 4 for 3g looks like its not working dont know if its corrupted i have tried it all day after the software is extracted you cannot it doesnt load after several minutes if not hours it comes back with an error code 1604 which says there is a problem with the usb but i can easily revert it to 3.1.3 using the same usb i have tried it with several computers and its the same.can one use the software downloaded from itunes and still be able to jailbreak and and unlock? please let us know if that will work or please upload a new custom firmware for IOS4 thanks so much for the support

RIO June 26, 2010, 1:36 am

this is for educational reasons only and i in no way profit from this.

3g:- first update to ios 4.0 DO NOT update carrier settings once updated goto redsn0w_win_0.9.5b5-3 and run you will be asked to browse for firmware goto C:\Users\your user name\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\iTunes\iPhone Software Updates
follow the instructions to get into dfu mode

once you have done this you would have jailbroke your iphone 3g now go in to cydia on your phone update cydia and then reenter and in search look for ultrasn0w and install now you have a 3g iphone working on ios 4.0 and open to any network 100% WORKING


godfred30 June 26, 2010, 4:10 am

thank you this tip helped me to enjoy IOS 4 on my 3G
I Didnt use the custom firmware as it never worked after several attempts but i use the itunes upgrade and have been able to jailbreak and unlock successfully,Thanks to all of you guys at iphoneheat you are helping us alot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Satya June 28, 2010, 11:14 pm

Hi Rio, same way during updating my 3G with multitasking firmware i am getting error 1600. so i updated OS 4.0 by restoring it directly through ITunes, it got updated. Now i am trying to jailbreak it by using redsnow but i am not able to find the above path u hv mentioned. Could you please help in finding it out. I am using Windows XP……thanks for your support

jason June 26, 2010, 6:07 am

when i do custom restore on my 3gs 3.1.3 with baseband 05.12.01, it is eeror 1604.pls help?

Rio June 26, 2010, 11:42 am

There is some kind of software in iTunes that prevents you doing a restore in iTunes. What firmware are you on before restore and what bootrom do you have

jason June 26, 2010, 10:06 pm

Thank you for reply.i was update from 3.1 to 3.13 firmware and stuck in emergency call at the moment.i thought it can be restore i OS4 custome firmware in order to jailbreak my iphone again as i had waiting to jailbreak since apple release 3.1.3 update.

kc_desi June 26, 2010, 6:51 am

Please help! i am stuck!! i downloaded the custom ipsw for 3G. I have a 3G on 3.0.1 (jailbroken using redsn0w and unlocked via ultrasn0w).

when i try to do a restore i get error 1604 in recovery mode and error 1602 in dfu mode…

i am now stuck with no phone.. please help… can i ever get out of these modes so as use my phone using my old version? any good news for me?

godfred30 June 26, 2010, 11:00 am

the custom firmware for 3g is not working i have had the same problems for the past two can try and restore it back to what you had before either 3.1.3. or 3.1.2 if it doesnt work do it on another compuetr then use itunes original update to install IOS 4 and you can jailbreak and unlock though it will change your baseband just know the new baseband is here to stay the guys at idev will always have resources to jailbreak any baseband so no need to preserve baseband.good luck and thanks to iphoneheat
the heat is really here

mansoor June 26, 2010, 11:48 am

Tried to restore it and got error 1600!!!! Please Help! [email protected]

godfred30 June 28, 2010, 8:57 pm

the custom firmware never worked for me either after several days of trying,itunes never recognised so dont waste your bandwith just go for the official update vial itunes its jailbreakable and unlockable with redsn0W and ultrasn0w respectively,period.
if are unable to restore back to 3.1.3 uninstall itunes and use “your uninstaller” application to delete all of itunes traces and install itunes again. you can download the your uninstaller from
it will work fine after that does how i did mine on 3g and it went well.the official upgrade will upgrade your modem firmware to the latest version but since its jailbreakable thanks to IDEVTEAM you dont need to worry about that,they are always up to it.
the most important thing is to get the phone working thats all.

Tavish June 26, 2010, 8:38 pm

Is there any os 4.0 for iphone 2G?thx

godfred30 June 28, 2010, 8:59 pm

So anymore bright ideas how to get my 3GS iOS4 jailbroken or even unlocked since i cant get pass the jailbroken part ? 🙂

Thanks !

RIO June 28, 2010, 6:10 pm

have you checked if it is the 3gs new bootrom that you have if it is like me your stuffed until they bring out the new software for it i’ve done the 3g as i posted earlier but don’t know if it will work on 3gs old bootrom but itunes has a glict in it that prevents you using recovery i tried it on the 3g and the 3gs and get the same problem

cool_dude966 June 28, 2010, 6:45 pm

whts d error “2” when you try 2 restore……i had built up a snowbreeze 4.0 custom firmware……i get this error all the time…….ny way?
i have itunes 9.2 and i tried changing usb codes , computers , usb ports….? :((

auercrud June 28, 2010, 8:35 pm

I kept getting 1600 errors while trying to upgrade my 3G. I think in the end it’s because iTunes somehow “verifies” the firmware you are trying to restore and if it doesn’t match with the official firmware, it will stop and show 1600.

In the end I just used the redsnow jb/activate (you install official firmware, then use redsnow.

godfred30 June 28, 2010, 9:02 pm

you are right
go for the official itunes upgrade its jailbreakable and unlockable dont waste your time on the custom firmware

Rio June 28, 2010, 9:24 pm

I don’t believe this I just went on to the dev site and find they have a program that can tell what bootrom you have I know I have the new bootrom but the program says old bootrom I’m now confused.

francise June 28, 2010, 11:09 pm

I purchased an IPhone on ebay that is 3gs ver. 4.0(8a293) baseband 05.13.04. Several of the websites id checked before purchasing claimed their product could unlock and jailbreak this phone. Now I read on this forum that that isn’t so. Is it just a matter of time before the hackers have found the fix for this. Can I downgrade to a lower version and baseband? Is so, can I upgrade back to ios4? I don’t know what shsh and since I wasn’t the one who upgraded, I don’t know the process.

Brian June 28, 2010, 11:31 pm

I have a 3GS new bootrom running on 4.0(8A293) 05.13.04
Is there any JB for my iphone? iphoneheat please reply.

RIO June 28, 2010, 11:37 pm

at the moment NO (waiting)

Brian June 28, 2010, 11:51 pm

any idea when will it arrive?

Rio June 29, 2010, 12:33 am

As I said I done the 3g I have been on the dev blogs and they say that it is in the pipe line if you have a 3gs and want the update just wait and if the sources are correct we will see it within the next week to ten days may be sooner ( in the hands of the GODS )

jp June 29, 2010, 3:26 am

To whom It may concern.
I have iphone 3gs with latest versio 4.0(8a293) old bootr0m [iBoot-359.3] with model mb717LL firmware 05.13.04 and I tried to jailbreak all it said error 1604 is there any jailbreak or unlock this phone yet please let me know and I am too old for this thing.
Thank you & god bless you all.

iPhoneHeat June 29, 2010, 3:50 pm

You can’t jailbreak 3GS running iOS 4.. To jailbreak 3GS, you must be @ 3.1.3 or 3.1.2 + jailbroken but not with Spirit

jp June 30, 2010, 6:45 pm

Thank you for your reply & Do you know when will be available to jailbreak and unlock for my unit.
Thank you for your help.

No ETA. Sorry

SuitedxACES June 29, 2010, 4:16 am

i downloaded the custom activated ipsw for 3gs. after doing the HJSPLIT and then renaming the zip file to ipsw. i proceeded to do the SHIFT + RESTORE under itunes 9.2. iphone is in RESTORE MODE. i then get an error saying that the firmware restore is not compatible with my iphone. wtf?
i have an iphone 3GS 4.0 with 05.11.07 (previously JB and UNLOCKED with SN0WBREEZE 1.52 with 3.1.3 05.11.07) should i be doing a SHIFT + UPDATE instead of RESTORE? ive tried to the SHIFT + RESTORE with my SNOWBREEZE 1.6.1, should i be doing the SHIFT + UPDATE instead? Also another thing. after i do the the RESTORE from APPLE i get an error 29. i then have to bring the iphone over to another computer and run BLACKRA1N RC3 so i can get it out of restore mode. after that itunes brings it up and sees the iphone 3gs ok.
when i do the restore with my custom ipsw’s it just seems to hang there. if i use the stock firmware, it seems to do the update. is my phone defective? the first time i did it with pwnage tool 4.01 i did the shift restore with custom ipsw and got it to go. only downside was that it kept rebooting itself every 4 mins. so i restored back to 3.1.3, and everything was fine. Me, being the retard that i am, gave it another try. still the same result. kept rebooting. so i restored back to 3.1.3. but this time i wasnt so lucky. iphone and itunes refused the down grade and i was left with no iphone…its now the 2nd day with no phone and no work. cuz i need my phone for work…sux…please advise. thanks guys..

CAN SOME1 upload iPod Touch 2G Custom iOS 4 IPSW

thanks need it urgent

Smitty July 2, 2010, 12:14 pm

Worked perfectly!
I’m on 3GS old bootrom T-mobile. I upgraded from your custom 3.1.2FW which also worked great. I was able to preserve original baseband 4.28.06 thanks to your custom firmware.
So glad you posted these custom firmwares! Love the website, lots of great news here.
I was worried about updating cause I already have everything I could ever need on 3.1.2, but this should be fun to check out the new iOS4.
For anyone wondering if your phone can jailbreak or unlock, there’s a nice chart at that was very helpful to me.
Pros: nice transitions, consolidated email, no more errors in Cydia… yet
Cons: MMS button missing T-mobile network. But I found a fix here

Win7Pro 64bit, itunes 9.2

Thanks again Heat!

marker July 4, 2010, 5:57 am

Does the activated ipsw have the wildcard.plist?

chano27 July 5, 2010, 1:29 am

Hey guys, quick question…
ok so what if i have an iPhone 3GS 3.1.3 and it IS jailbroken with Spirit? do i re-jailbreak it with another tool and then upgrade to iOS4 or what do i do?

Thanks in advance guys. =]

iPhoneHeat July 5, 2010, 1:21 pm

New BootRom or old?

vodanhz July 5, 2010, 8:46 am

just to confirm.

if i’m currently on 3.0 (old BootRom )

all i need to do is get Pwnage tools 3.1.5 to make custom FW for 3.1.3, restore iphone to 3.1.3_Custom.

then use pwnage tools 4.01 to make custom FW for 4.0, then restore iphone to 4.0_Custom


Smitty July 5, 2010, 10:16 am

If you have 3GS, new or old bootrom, and have never jailbreak yet, you can’t jailbreak. Hopefully it’s in the works. If you’re already jailbreak, not using ‘Spirit’, and have old bootrom, then all you need is download the custom firmware provided in this post. If you have 3G, all can be jailbreak.

iPhoneHeat July 5, 2010, 1:38 pm

thx Smitty for the input..
+ If it’s 3GS, you can’t restore older firmware unless you’ve SHSH blobs saved for 3.1.3 or 3.1.2

then install ultraSn0w from Cydia

If you create a custom IPSW for the iPhone 4, jailbroken, that’d be great.

You no longer need custom ipsw, Install firmware4.0.1 from iTunes then jailbreak with from iPhone browser, then unlock with ultrasn0w in cydia.

I have a jailbroken iPhone 3G on 3.1.2(Firmware 04.26.08) I am downloading the the custom activated ones, do i put my phone in recovery mode and ‘Restore’ in itunes using the one im downloading or do i need to do something else.

Like every1 i just dont want to screw my phone up, any info is appreciated.

Smitty is correct.

even if i upload the custom IPSW, it wont help you. coz you still have to modify the host file and shsh blobs and tiny umbraila.

the best is go there and very easy to JB.

yes restore 4.0.1 ipsw original and open from iphone browser and slid to jailbreak.

hope it would helps.

hello, I have a iPod touch 2.2 (5G77a) MB model and I’m new to jailbreaking and find it kinda overwhelming…..could someone tell me which firmware I should download?

Smitty August 8, 2010, 2:49 am

The ipod jailbreak has many variables to consider when determining jailbreak options. Go to and find ipod 2G, click the link “whick ipod do I have?”,
Whether or not you can jailbreak depends on what ipod family, version(MC or other), firmware version.

Can you post these on somewhere other than rapidshare? like mediafire or something? rapid share is annoying.

Hi, I have an iphone 3GS new bootrom, locked to AT&T, loaded with 3.1.2. i jailbroke it using blackrain and cydia, it worked fine and was able to use it outside US, until yesterday it froze and while trying to reboot, i realized that i was getting the recovery mode. i am trying to restore original firmware with no luck at all, always eror 1604, i tried all way possible and read all threats. i am afraid the problem is in my 3gs and not itunes, since i tried more than 3 pcs with different itunes version.
my question is what version shall i restore and how and does it need to be a custom firmware or original. now my iphone seems to be useless and i hate to feel that.

help please

Don’t play anymore man, if you upgrade your baseband to 5.14, your iphone is nothing but an iPod

Read carefully about SHSH, TinyUmbrella if you want to restore to your required firmware while still keep your baseband as is.

My iphone 4g with firmware 4.0.1 dont reboot(i TUR ON MY PHONE AND THE LOGO APPLE STOCK ) I try to restore with itunes 10 and all firmware 4.0, 4.0.1 and 4.0.2 and i got this error 3194
please help me?

indi October 21, 2010, 7:13 pm

Did you activate your iphone with original sim, if you have such sim, connect your iphone to iTunes, insert your sim in; or use all-in one sim card if you don’t.

jac January 4, 2011, 8:20 pm

francise October 18, 2010, 11:53 pm

I have an Iphone 3Gs, ios4.0, baseband 05.13.04, new bootrom. Can this be unlocked? On your website, under ultrasn0w 0.93, it said not to use it with new bootrom.
I would greatly appreciate any help that is available. thx.

indi October 21, 2010, 7:19 pm

Hey guy, just get on wifi, point safari to jeailbreakme.con to jb, then install ultrasn0w fron Cydia, you will have your phone works, what you mentioned is iOS 4.1 not 4.0

francise October 22, 2010, 6:35 pm

Indi, Thanks for the reply. I tried to jailbreak severa times, but got a message the the install failed. Do you have any sugestions? Francise

blaster December 8, 2010, 3:17 pm

do you risk losing your data if you do that ? (SMS, pictures, adress book)

or will it just update the firmware, and leave all the data that was already on the iphone ???

thanks a lot if you can help me
