    Cydia crashes when I try to open it. Used ICY to SSH into the phone so I could delete the files in /var/lib/apt/lists, but there were no files there to delete. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    P.S. If I do not set up my phone from back up, cydia works just fine. Any ideas on why setting up my phone from my backup causes cydia to crash? Thanks. . .

    When I copy the Pwnage Tool to my Applications folder it says there are some items that could not be copied because they require special authotization. I run the app anyway and everything goes fine until the part when the app is supposed to guide me thru the steps to put the phone (never jailbroken before) in DFU mode. It just says it's on Restore mode and opens iTunes...
    Can anyone help me with this? Many thanks in advance!

    wow look at all these updates..

    and yet it still hasnt thoroughly fixed the flaws from the iphone OS 3.1. As of this moment my 3G S is still running OS 3.0.1 jailbroken and unlocked.

    I will probably keep this OS until apple releases an update to fix those battery, random shutdown, all that crap.

    Well, my question here is that I run os 3.1. How can I update to 3.1.2 without losing all my Cydia apps and what not? Is there a way to do this? Can anyone fill me in please? Can I just create the custom firmware and restore in itunes or is that a no no? Thank you!

    I wonder if when the PT puts my iPhone in recovery mode I could just leave the Expert Mode and click on the DFU button on the top of the PY window and see if the jailbreaking process can be picked up from there... any thoughts? I really need some help, thanks a lot!!

    I haven't been able to update to 3.1 on my 3GS bc I have a windows-based computer. I need to jailbreak and keep my baseband. So far, two of my applications are not working anymore bc they require 3.1 - the jerks! Please come out with PWNAGE tool for windows 7 soon. Thank you!!

    I am having some troubles. The first run-through, i was unable to access the DFU. When i turned off my phone, it turned on too quickly, and i did not get a chance to wait the 5 seconds to press both buttons. I rebooted my Mac, and went through the process again, and this time it doesn't even see the phone. It just says "Connect Device to USB." ITunes can see the phone, but Pwnage Tool cant. Any ideas? The 3GS is a gift for my dad's b-day, so any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    I never had to manually put my phone in DFU mode, as soon as pwange told me to put my phone into DFU mode iTunes came up and said it had detected a phone in recovery mode. I just closed pwange and continued to do option-restore in iTunes and everything worked out great.

    Hey Nick!
    Yeah, I have it but I can never seem to get it to work. I back up my apps, but then when I reinstall it and restore either it doesn't work or it doesn't restore all my apps.

    Thanks.
    Worked for me.
    But had to Remove ICY from the IPSW file.
    And had to update Cydia first before installing Unlock tool.

    my friend told me about how to jailbreak iphone 3GS, but i select the "Simple Mode" instead of "Expert Mode" and i accidentally click restore without holding up option :(
    now its 3.1.2 firmware, but is it still possible for me to re-jailbreak it ?

    Hi,
    I have a 3GS and jailbroke. I went to unlock it with ultrasn0w and the phone froze. Now it is stuck in recovery mode. The only thing I can do is update it with the latest firmware. If i do that, I won't be able to unlock it. I have tried restoring it with a custom firmware made with pwnagetool, but it won't allow me to. It says something like incompatible firmware. Is there any hope?

    What about the ad on this website from autoiphoneunlocker.com? Has anyone tried it? Will it truely unlock 3.1.2 with the newest baseband? If it does, it may be worth it to buy it since I have several iphones I can use it on.

    Please, someone help.

    Paul, the autoiphoneunlocker only uses what the Dev Team and GeoHot has released. They don't have any new sources. I bought it for 3.0.1. Same thing as what's posted on here, except clearer directions and all the necessary files are all in one place for easy quick download. Well, it does have unlimited upgrades. Hmmm...

    I followed these steps and successful JB and unlocked my iphone 3gs with 3.1 OS. However, I could not make any phone calls at all. When I make a call, it suddenly ended it and then it announced that the call is failed. Accept that I still received calls and msm from other people. Can anyone help me to fix it please?
