How to fix some mysterious problems.

Hi , I upgrade my iphone 3gs from 4.1 to 6.1.3 , hackactivate it, jailbreak and started working. Later realised after every reboot, i need to do just boot from redsnow to again make it work again. It is a pain to do so as redsnow for 6.1.3 is not complete.

So decided to downgrade my iphone to 6.1.2 as rendsnow is full proof for the version. I download the required IPSW but i don't have SHSH blobs?

Please advice how can i retrieve SHSH blobs so that i can continue the downgrade process?? I need to arrage SHSH blobs for which version? 6.1.3 or 4.1 ?

Please advice

Many Thanks

You can only save 6.1.2 blobs when it was the latest version or your 3gs is currently on 6.1.2. No 6.1.2 shsh saved, no 6.1.2 restore for new bootrom 3gs.

@justinred Thanks for the prompt reply.So what do you suggest now. Should i manage with 6.1.3 somehow till redsn0w solves the every time restart issue ?

Now that i have 6.1.3 , should i save the blob for future ? (but the problem of restart is still not solved. Does it makes sense to save the blobs or i should save the blob after redsnow solves the problem?

Many Many Thanks

Re: "I need to arrage SHSH blobs for which version? 6.1.3 or 4.1 ?" presently, without valid SHSH blobs for another iOS version, the jailbreak choice for new bootrom 3GS is 4.1 untethered or 6.1.3 semi-tethered (and SHSH blobs are not needed for either of those because Apple is signing them).
