iPhone 3GS Users Can’t Restore to iPhone OS 3.1.2 as Apple Has Stopped Signing Firmware Files

To restore an iPhone 3GS, you need a signed firmware file.Folks at BigBoss are reporting that Apple has stopped signing iPhone OS 3.1.2 from today, which means that iPhone 3GS users cannot restore using iPhone 3.1.2 or older firmware files. They can only restore using iPhone 3.1.3 firmware file.
are screwed and cannot restore anything but 3.1.3.
If you are a jailbreak user running a 3gs or ipod touch 3 (or later generation ipod touch 2) that has not stored the TSS in cydia, you should be very careful with what you do from now until the next jailbroken firmware. You will want to be careful in what you install to make sure you don’t have to restore for any reason. It would be a good idea to install open SSH and learn how to use it so that you can get in and fix any problems without a restore, also.
users don’t need to worry as they don’t need signed firmware files.
We’ll let you know as soon as we have any further updates.
