      Agreed...hence the second paragraph of my post explaining what you just pointed out.

      Is there any known issues with this aside from the network settings having to be reset for wifi to work? I just traded in my 3gs for a new one (old bootloader! Serial # 4th and 5th digits are 41!! *phew* ) and deciding between blackra1n and pwnage tool.... inclined for pwnage tool since it's what I'm more familiar with

      4th and 5th numbers are 41? You sure that's the old bootloader?

      Blacksn0w is the unlock and blackra1n is the jailbreak.

      You need to load your ipcc, carrier settings, onto the phone and then reset

      ^ Have I tested pwnage tool before? Yeah, I had it on my old 3GS. The only problem I had was the missing carrier. I fixed with "Fake Carrier"

      ^^ I read somewhere on here, forget from who but they were a moderator (i'm leaning towards confucious?) that if the 4th and 5th serial numbers of your phone are greater than the value of "42" you have the newest bootloader on your phone meaning you have to do the tethered jailbreak with blackra1n.

      Anyway I've already JB with pwnagetool (purpoted NOT to work with the newest bootloader) so it must have the old bootloader. I'll see if I can find a link to that post... but that's why I mentioned my SN having "41" for the 4th and 5th digits.

      Right, sorry for the confusion (no pun intended). I actually just reread the post and he claims if the SN is "41" or higher you need a tethered JB, but I just JB with pwnage tool just fine and unlocked with blacksn0w (which I don't have any service just yet but I get spotty service in my condo as is...)

      AT&T ipcc will not help you if you are on T-Mobile. Here is a simple fix...

      Step 1: Quit iTunes and disconnect your iPhone
      Step 2: Launch Terminal from the dock or from the Applications:Utilities folder.
      Step 3: Enter the following command into the Terminal window:

      defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE

      Step 4: Connect your iPhone and click to launch iTunes from the dock.
      Step 5: Select your iPhone from the list of devices on the left then hold down the Option key and click theCheck for Updates button.(shift+ option for windows)
      Step 6: Now you can now select your .ipcc file as it is not greyed out
      Download the ipcc from here: T-Mobile_US Carrier File
      *Reboot your iphone (hold both power and home button for a few seconds)
      and you are good to go!

      If you want to change your carrier logos, you will have to SSH.
      Step 8: SSH custom carrier logos to /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle/T-mobile_us.bundle

      Custom T-Mobile icons can be downloaded here:RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting

      To enable tethering, Follow this guide:
      Open Cydia, and Click "Sections" on the bottom of the window. Scroll to the "Repositories" section. Look for a Repository called "iPhone-Notes.de's Source"
      Install this repo.
      Next, go back to "Sections" and go to the "Tweaks 3.1.2" section.
      Browse for a file called "Tethering 3G-3.1.2" or "Tethering 3GS-3.1.2" depending on your model phone.

      Reset the phone after installation. This will take care of the tethering option. Of course for both the MMS and Tethering settings require you have the Unlimited data plan from T-Mobile to work.

      This already has it all!

      But if you want to edit it....
      SSH this plist into : /private/var/mobile/Library/Carrier Bundle.bundle
      Save the original as a backup.

      Reboot. The option to edit will be back
