      3GS Users: If you were one of the first people to get the new iPhones, you phone will not be tethered.

      I bought the 3GS the first day it was out and just jailbroke with blackra1n and it is NOT tethered.

      It was easier than calling someone..

      Thank you for that ground breaking discovery

      Pretty much any one who has a 3GS pre week 40 is good. Some weeks 40-41 are ok as well. You can tell which week your iPhone was produced by looking at the 4th and 5th digit in your serial number.

      It can be JB but it is a tethered JB so probably not worth it.

      Is there anyword when it will be possible to jail break iphones 3gs week 40 and up without the tethering concern? is it possible they have not released it maybe due to OS 4.0 coming out shortly?

      I am new to the iphone and I need your help. I bought the phone unlocked, but I sent it oversea and they had to turn it off.After turning on, there is that page showing USB and CD. I would be very grateful if someone gives more detailed information on how to do it step by step.

      running the blacksnow, it gives an error message and closes the program.

      I need your help. I appreciate your time and effort

      What phone? What FW?
      Do you mean BlackRa1n rather than BlackSn0w? If so, what error message?

      it is iphone 3gs

      I don't know which FW, i think 3.1.3 ( i guess 05.11.07 baseband)

      the person who has sold it to me unlocked, sent me balckra1n file in case we turn the phone off and on

      so we installed it on the computer and connected the phone to the computer with the monitor showing a usb and cd picture on it. after running the file, there is an error message from windows coming and closing the file.

      so that is how far we went, I don't know what to do

      thanks for your help in advance

      It sounds like a 3GS with a tethered JB (probably 3.12 / 05.11.07) so BlackRa1n should work.
      Try downloading blackra1n from blackweather and trying again.
      If it doesn't work then let us know what the error message is.

      Try searching on iClarified.com . Geohot the creator of Blackrain had shut down his blog..left the jailbreak scene. It may be why you can't readily find it.
