UPDATE Sun 28th June 7pm: You MUST obtain your unique jailbreak certificate before apple closes the hole. Follow instructions below.
Obtain your Unique Jailbreak Certificate
Step 1: First of all you will need to obtain your ECID (this is so that jailbreaks are possible on your device). To do this, turn your iPhone OFF by holding down the power button and sliding the red slider. Make sure it is disconnected from your computer, then hold down the HOME button on the front of the device and whilst holding down home, connect the iPhone 3GS to your computer. Keep holding down home until iTunes loads and tells your there is an iPhone in restore mode.
Step 2: Mac Users Only: , load "System Profiler" (easiest way to find this is to Spotlight search for it by using the magnifying glass at the top right of your screen). Then click on USB in the Hardware list on the left, then in one of the USB Device Tree you should see "Apple Mobile Device (Recovery Mode)". Your ECID should be part of the serial number, copy and paste the number immediately to the right of ECID:, it should be 16 digits in length.
Step 2: Windows Users Only: Download and run usbview.exe and select "Config Descriptors" from the Options menu. Now select Refresh from the File Menu. Select the Apple Recovery (iBoot) device from the USB Device Tree in the left panel then Copy (highlight and press Control+c) your ECID from the Descriptor fields on the right.
Step 3: Now visit this website Purplera1n.com and paste the number into the text field that appears there, then press return. Now "Save" this file for when you need it next week.
Step 4: Now disconnect your device and hold down home and sleep together until an Apple appears, then release the buttons to take your iPhone out of recovery mode. Congratulations, you are now safe to jailbreak and unlock when the software comes out this week :-)
not sure why , what or where - but there must be a reason

Is this only for people in the UK? I didn't know the US needed to get a "jailbreak certificate" since Apple doesn't even condone jailbreaking...

He's talking about the iBEC & iBSS files.I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
