    Default To sell, or not to sell?
    What's up everyone? I'm really new to the iPhone. Two weeks ago my friend sold me his iPhone 3GS. It had the 3.1.2 firmware and was jailbroken and unlocked for my T-Mobile service. However, somehow I coincidently updated to firmware 4.0. Now the phone wont work with my T-Mobile SIM card. I'm really confused about the terminology used with the iPhone in the forum and other sections on this site. My friend told me that it should be just a matter of time before someone comes up with a method of jailbreaking the 4.0. I want to know from you guys whether its just a matter of days, hopefully in a week, when someone comes up with a jailbreak method for the 4.0 firmware. If not, I might consider selling the phone because I need a phone ASAP!

    Attempt a jailbreak via Spirit (you must have an AT&T SIM, prepaid will do, to activate in order for Spirit to work) and unlock with Ultrasn0w via Cydia by adding repo666.ultrasn0w.com

    If you have a Mac, use PwnageTool. Unlock same method.

    Since the phone has been jailbroken before, it should be fine, although having the new bootrom would cause some issues I believe. Check your bootrom version via iH8sn0w.com using f0recast.

    Why the hell would he do all that, just look on your serial number in general settings and see if the 4th and 5th numbers are 39 or below. The serial starting with MB is good, but MOST MC models are new bootrom (check the numbers to verify).

    Why the hell are you so rude? You couldve just made your point without being so obnoxious.

    OP obviously didnt clarify what bootrom version or whether it was an MC model or not so I was throwing out options to try. Better than not trying to help at all.

    Go changer your panties, they are too tight to participate in big boy discussion.

    People are becoming ignorant relying on programs for everything, like looking at your serial number is too hard. IF that's the case you are MORON.

    FYI I ran this little program to see if it worked and it told me my factory unlocked phone was not unlockable.

    Way to go............. FAIL.

    Its amazing how you call yourself a "big boy" with such an immature way of talking to people. Perhaps escaping to the Internet is the only way you know how to communicate cuz in the real world, I can hardly imagine you getting laid without paying a fee with that childish mouth of yours.

    Grow up. Dissing people wont get you far in life. I just wanted to know why you had to be so rude when I was just trying to help. Its apparent you have no respect for others let alone women. I wont wish bad things upon you, cuz that wont change your lack of ability to grow up and talk to others respectfully. I dont even think your mother is to blame for your upbringing, there are just boys who never grow on their own and end up single with some sort of STD.

    They say little boys with little wienies cover up for their insecurities by trying to put other people down

    Aint no body hurt up in here but your little ego. It just pains me to see a sad boy who lacks any adult experience sitting online pretending he's the **** when he's just covering up for his tiny little d*ck. K? Grow up, "big boy".

    ^Seriously, quit ********! You're the one who acting a like a little kid!

    Plus, one1 has a good point. You have to look at the serial number since the more recent 3GS models have a new bootrom.

    Go back further in the news!

    Wow, this forum is full of immature little boys. I cant believe a supposedly helpful community is just full of pricks.

    Whatever, you boys go on and enjoy each others' online company since you cant get a girl in reality.

    If you wanna correct someone, kindly tell them that there is an easier way or a better method than what was advised instead of sitting there poking your little boys ego with immature stabs at people.

    This community is such a failure cuz of immature boys.

    one1 is one1. You should have read his biography.

    I am helping. You are the one who is making it worse. Plus, what do you expect from forums? NOT EVERYONE IS NICE!!

    MMi is not a fail and is the best iPhone forums. Period.

    Right, MMi is the best iPhone forum. I dont disagree with that. Certain people who are in this community is a huge failure. Its true, not everyone is nice, and I suppose a-holes will get what they deserve somehow some way. I just disagree with treating others poorly when they didnt do anything wrong to begin with. Sure I escalated the situation and made things worse Ill admit, but I really disagree that something so immature happens when I never meant harm to begin with.

    Thanks for the reply Anniex. I ran the forecast and the phones baseline is 05.13.04 with bootloader 6.4. Is that good enough to jailbreak with Spirit and unlock with ultrasnow (via cydia)?

    Just to add some more information about my phone, the model is an MC135 and the fourth and fifth numbers are 2 and 1 (21). one1 said to check the serial number so I did.

    Hmm...it may most likely wouldn't work, but give it a try since a few MC models are probably still jailbreakable.
