Downgrade Iphone/Ipod touch iOS4 to 3.1.3 or 3.1.2

When apple released their iOS4, I thought it was cool to run the new operating system on my iPOD touch 2G.  None of my friends wanted to flash the new OS but me.  I took the risk to flash it and had it jailbroken 2 weeks later.  Then things started to get worse.

  • My ipod touch had inevitably rebooted itself a few times due to low memory
  • There is a latency in between the switching of songs in the music player
  • Battery life really sucked to the max
  • Lagginess in playing games
  • And many other more…

So about 4 weeks ago, I was looking for a cure in Google to downgrade this highly anticipated OS back to 3.1.3 but to no avail.  All of the methods found in Google required me to have the SHSH of the ipod touch before flashing it to iOS4.  This was a no-return step.  If you have not backed up your SHSH to saurik’s server after u jailbreak in iOS3.1.2 or 3.1.3, you will never ever be able to get the SHSH back.  I was fucking cursing and swearing.

Then a white holy light came and gave me an optimal solution for this situation.  It is STILL POSSIBLE for you to downgrade your iOS4 back to 3.1.3 WITHOUT YOUR SHSH if you can find the custom firmware to flash it.  You need to have LibUSB installed (64bit go google for a tutorial), then google for a custom firmware and flash it.  If you encounter error 21 or 16xx, dont worry.. just keep on trying to flash!  (thats what I did).  You can find a full tutorial in redmondpie..

And a disclaimer yet, although I have used the method.. it was at my own risk as well… im not responsible for your bricked device if you did not follow the right instructions.

THE CLICK FIVE – CELEBRATIONS AT MARINA BAY (for YOG)

One of the night sister came running into my room and shout ‘HEY! CLICK FIVE IS COMING TO SG!’ and ima like ‘WTF!? WHEN!? HOW MUCH!?’  She then told me that only exclusive invites and we need to get the invites by buying a Samsung phone so without further ado, we checked everyone’s mobile plan and see who’s plan is expiring soon then we went over to buy a Samsung Galaxy S the next day – thats right, just for the pair of tickets!  After reaching there, then we realise that its actually opened to public as well but just the that public seats are really quite back so thank god we had the VIP tickets.  By 8.30pm, the organisers saw that the seats for the VVIP are not evern 20% filled, so they decided to ‘upgrade’ VIP seats to VVIP! which made every crazy clickfive fans running to the front to get the seats!

And thats how I got a good view to take photos =) Free VVIP seats!

Jeff Chang Concert 2010

Could not find any related video online for the concert so got to use this commercial to do an intro:

As a matter of fact, I have been an avid listener of his music since 1994s (when I was in primary school and had crushes on a few girls in my class)  Oh yea, so I have been emo-ing since I was way younger ROFL.  Nonetheless, when I heard that hes coming to Singapore again, not part of any of his album promotion but for his past 20years of effort in the music industry, I knew I had to go for this 1.  @princesspinky89 bought the tickets for me secretly and surprised me with it 😀  I was fking delighted!

So on his concert, he sang most of his old billboard hits such as ‘Kwan Rong’, ‘Guo Huo’, ‘Xin Yang’, ‘Cong Yi Kai Shi Dao Xian Zai’, ‘Ai Ru Chao Shui’, ‘Tai Xiang Ai Ni’.. He is very well known for his love song hits..  Most of the KTV go’ers knows him even if they dont know him back in 1990s.

FIR Concert

Attended the FIR concert with @princesspinky89 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.  The performance was fantastic and awesome!!  She had a very good vocal and stamina and together with the 2 other members, they rocked the stage so hard that it gave all of us a wonderful and unforgettable night.  Their song list includes a number of their billboard hits such as Fly Away, Lydia, Revolution, Qian Nian Zhi Lian and etc.   Another thing that struck me was she did a cover of another song by the name of ‘in the arms of an angel’, I have never heard this song before but when I heard her sing, I just feel like letting my emotions go..  Heres a short recorded segment of her cover:

In the Arms of an Angel

Arms of an Angel by Sarah McLachan & Josh Groban:

Jay Chou Concert 2010 – World Tour Singapore

Could have taken more photos at the concert but was stopped by the crews (instead of security) and I had to spoke to the supervisor so that I dont have to place my expensive equipment in their incompetent plastic lockers.  By placing my camera in their lockers, I have to ensure that I dont lose the keys (myself) and worry about my equipment because its out of my sight!  I really condemn Singapore Indoor Stadiums for their security policies.  Places like D’marquee and Singapore Expo dont even restrict you from bringing DSLR in.  This is freedom.   Afterall, everyone who paid for the concert expects to bring some memories home so thats why we bring a DSLR to capture the moments.    I’m not the only 1 whining about the Singapore Indoor Stadium policies.  Infact, everytime there is a concert at the indoor stadium, I would think thrice whether to attend the concert.  Ofcourse, we’re there to support the singers and watch their live performances but thinking about the policies just irks me.

I’ve got more Jays photo to share but they’re not sharp and clear =(  All thanks to the hide&seek game I was playing with the crews.  Nonetheless, I had enjoyed myself alot in the concert.  And by the way, this is the first time I attended a FULL HOUSE concert in Singapore!  Very very full!  And so full, he had to do 3 concerts to fulfill most of our desires!   He’s fucking fantastic.  Anyways, here are some videos done by @princesspinky89:
