      Will this jailbreak the newer 3gs with the new bootloader? What does it mean by hacktivation? And or keep your original activation??

      I doubt it, but can you just unlock without rejailbreaking?

      EDIT:I need to read myself!

      i restored to 3.1.2, ran blackrain, then downloaded cydia snow and rock. the tethering option wasnt there. i updated my carrier file to the 6.5 ipcc and installed the enable tethering app in cydia now its working good.

      worked great but I ran into a problem with itunes

      The phone had been previously activated to fido with 3.1.2. I ran the tool it installed it i unlocked it and put my rogers sim card in. Worked great reception full bars. Connected to itunes and it said the sim card was not supported and to put another sim card in. I'm currently doing a re-install to see if this will fix it without activating it with fido sim card. I'll keep updated


      BTW Thanks geohot you have been there for me for my 2g iphone, my 3g and now my 3gs you're awesome I wish I had your talent. PLEASE let me know your secret lol
