Calling all iPhone 3GS Owners : Please use Saurik’s Signature Server for future hacking!

Apple tightened security with iPhone 3GS and the latest 3GS hardware version is only capable of tethered jailbreak 🙁

Saurik, the man behind Cydia implemented a clever approach to bypass Apple’s insane security features of the 3GS! He explains the whole process in great detail here.

In short, all you have to do is :

Jailbreak your iPhone 3GS. Trust me it is easy, fun and super productive to jailbreak your iPhone and it is perfectly legal!

Launch Cydia on your iPhone 3GS

Click on ‘Make my life easier, thanks!’. If you don’t see it on Cydia, your life is already made easier 😉

Follow these steps to downgrade your iPhone 3GS firmware in the future.

Congratulations on securing your iPhone 3GS jailbreak from all future Apple attempts to break the jailbreak!

  2. I clicked send the SHSH to cydia, it was saying `pendind approval or something` just a few minutes later I reset all setting and phone stuck on recovery screen. I can not now restore. what can I do?

  3. help pls , i got iphone 3gs (new one ) and i made restore from i tunes without holding shift ,,
    and my iphone screen is the( cable & itune icon )and emergency call only .. what can i do ??

    1. It means it is waiting for activation.

      Do you have AT&T or the official iPhone carrier? If yes, launch iTunes and it shall activate.

      If you don't have an official carrier, use Custom firmware to restore it to an activated firmware and get past emergency screen. Look for the unlock guides in the menu…

    1. Your only option if you don't have an official iPhone contract is using custom firmware. If you have never jailbroken your iPhone 3GS, you can only use iOS 4 now. I will post the links to the custom firmware shortly.

    1. It is a 2 step process : Jailbreak and store your SHSH files for all firmware versions before the release of the next firmware version by Apple.

      If you have SHSH files stored at different firmware versions, then yes you can use Saurik's signature server or better yet, use TinyUmbrella. It will show what firmware you are eligible to downgrade to and the simplest way of doing so!
