I'm truly baffled at how many people don't read the original post before opening a file. That's unfortunate. I guess I'll have to go in and fix the thing over the weekend, not like updating the original post helps. Looks like I'll have to write it all within the PDF before anybody reads what I have to say. Hell, even within the PDF it says no unlock for anything above 5.13.05 and 1.59.00, and people still ask if there is. *sight* I'm resolving to big red font all the way thru my guide.

You're probably right. Maybe I should just retire and let you and Yeow answer all the questions
I was actually going to reformat the entire table and make it easier to find out what jailbreak tool for what device and stipulations if any. Don't know if it's worth it anymore haha.

4.0.1 (saved on Cydia)
Updated to 4.1
Which method do I use now? I'm on a Mac.
Thanks in advance

Greenpois0n, Limera1n, PwnageTool.
Already on 4.1? Use GP or Limera1n. Pick one, doesn't matter which.

Based on the PDF I think I am screwed. Just bought a 3G on 4.1. It was restored so its stuck in the insert sim stage. I want to jailbreak/unlock to use on t-mobile. I'm on XP but my roommate has a macbook pro. Is there any way to jailbreak/unlock?
10-24-2010, 02:06 PM #170
The PDF is out of date. I'm updating it tonight when I get a chance to upload the new one for 4.1 I wrote last night.
You can jailbreak with Redsn0w 0.9.6b1 or the new PwnageTool.
You will NOT be able to unlock since it is already on 4.1.
Note: you can use Sn0wbreeze too, just thought I'd throw that in cuz it's for Windows. Pwnage is Mac only. Redsn0w for both.

Edit: I just used Forecast by iH8sn0w to check my phone and it says I have bootloader 5.8 which should allow be to downgrade my baseband to an unlocked version. Can you point me in the right direction?

Sure, just jailbreak your device with either of the tools I told you, whichever is easiest for you. Then after jailbreaking, you'll wanna go to Cydia and install "FuzzyBand" (there's 2, make sure you install the one that supports bb 5.14.02). Run Fuzzyband to downgrade the baseband, it will take some time. Afterwards, install Ultrasn0w in Cydia to unlock your phone.

Hey Anniex, would you mind helping me out with my jailbreak issues? I'm currently on firmware 3.1.3, and jailbroken with Spirit. Oh and I have the old bootrom (I think, mine's untethered with Spirit, I think Spirit + new bootrom gave a tethered JB).
So with spirit can i just upgrade to 4.1 and then use the current gen JB tools or need I start over? Sorry, I've little time to catch up on JB world on account of exams so any help would be great.
Thank you JB Guru, Anniex.

No, blackra1n and new boot gives a tethered jb. You need to find out for sure if it's a new or old boot before you can see what you can do.
Do you need to unlock your phone?
10-27-2010, 02:32 PM #175
Thanks for getting back to me in record time/ My bootrom is 359.3 which is the old one amirite? (thank heavens as I bought mine in December and they shipped the new bootrom 3gs in October I hear)
Unlocking, yes the option would be nice for when my plan expires and I need to sign up with another network (that's what unlocking does if I recall, please correct me if I'm mistaken)
EDIT: baseband 05.11.07

For you, you'll have to go to Cydia and install Spirit2Pwn. (add repo "repo.woowiz.net")
Then you'll download a stock 4.1 ipsw (felixbruns.de) and Sn0wnbreeze 2.0.2 (ih8sn0w.com).
Create a custom fw with sn0wbreeze and 4.1 ipsw, then shift+restore to it.
Unlock with Ultrasn0w after.
For Sn0wbreeze, go into expert mode, if you have an AT&T SIM don't select "activate". If you don't have one, then select "activate". If you unchecked activate cuz you have a SIM, after the restore it will take you to the emergency call screen. You can then insert your SIM and activate in iTunes to access your jailbroken phone. Then go to Cydia to install Ultrasn0w if you want to unlock now or in the future.

Thanks - just few questions to clarify
1. Is it true you can't disable OS4 mulittasking with showbreeze?
2.Sn0wbreeze to get up to 4.1 (3GS has certain requirements to meet)- which requirements were they?
3. What is this activate business? just out of curiosity? What's going on behind the process and such?
4. Do you recommend Jailbreaking using restore (ie, wiping the phone clean first) is recommended over using upgrade since every time you upgrade you lose a chunk of disk space taken up by your last OS installation?
5. SHSH do i need to do anything to back it up or does Cydia do it all for you?
EDITL Sorry i just realized you mean restore using the new custom firmware - this will wipe it clean wont it? IS there a way to do it through upgrading? I have like 300 apps LOL

LOL no, you said "So why not update the pdf?" you imply its his obligation and responsibility to do so when he's already done so much, that would tick anybody off, including me were I in Anniex's shoes. I mean, cmon, you didn't even say please.
Furthermore, may I remind this thread is for people who want their devices jailbroken not for the childish bickering in your previous post, its doesn't help others with their JB issues not is it even related to JB so stay on topic please.
It also doesnt help that Anniex was halfway through helping me out before when you just cut in like that. You're being rude and off-topic, cmon man, please be considerate of others.
Anniex may I apologize on his/her behalf, quite rude but rest assured that most ppl are eternally grateful for your hard work, including myself.

There are no "smudge marks" on my guide, it's just not updated yet.
I could care less what your input is, if you're really intent on helping the community by updating a guide such as this, write up your own without plagiarizing any part of mine and post it up as a new thread. These guides take a lot more time to write than you think, I've put time into helping instead of mouthing off acting like I'm all that when I haven't done anything. Oh but I did do plenty, you're the one who hasn't.
Prothean, I'm going to write up a guide for you tonight. Your phone is the old boot so you can use custom firmwares (that is the prerequisite you were asking about). I will send you a message in the next few hours since I'm at work right now. Just one last question I'd like you to answer, do you have an official carrier's SIM card?
