    Default [OFFICIAL] Are You Jailbreakable? - iP4S, iP4 GSM/CDMA, iP3GS, iP3G, & iP2G
    UPDATE 8/1/12: FINISHED (for now).

    *Redsn0w for iOS 5 can create custom firmwares. If you need to preserve your baseband, make a custom firmware to restore/upgrade and jb simultaneously. Custom firmwares can also be made with alternative tools such as Sn0wbreeze (for Windows) and PwnageTool (for Mac). Redsn0w is available for both Mac and Windows.*

    NOTE:
    Restoring/upgrading/downgrading to any iOS 5 fw versions that are not currently being signed by Apple either with stock of custom firmware requires stitching the fw with available SHSHs (this does mean TinyUmbrella is not needed) is required. You can do so with Redsn0w or iFaith.


    iPhone 4S
    iOS 5.1.1 Untethered; Absinthe/Redsn0w/Rocky Raccoon in Cydia if already JB as tethered
    iOS 5.1 Tethered; Absinthe
    iOS 5.0.1 Untethered; Absinthe
    iOS 5.0 Untethered; Absinthe

    iPhone 4 GSM

    iOS 5.1 Tethered; Sn0wbreeze/Redsn0w
    iOS 5.0.1 Untethered; Sn0wbreeze/Redsn0w (Corona in Cydia will untether w/o restore and reJB if already on tethered JB)

    iOS 4.3.3/4.3.2/4.3.1/4.3 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool (need SHSHs); already on FW version: Redsn0w/Jailbreakme
    iOS 4.2.1 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool (need SHSHs); already on FW version - Redsn0w/recent version of Greenpois0n/Limera1n
    iOS 4.1 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool (need SHSHs); already on FW version - Redsn0w/Older version of Greenpois0n/Limera1n

    iPhone 4 CDMA (Verizon)
    *Note: There are some extra steps necessary with PwnageTool (Mac) including downloading the right bundles and whatnot, you could do so and follow guides (Google!) to do so but I won't put them in the list just bc it isn't so "noob-friendly" for now.*
    iOS 5.1.1 Untethered; Redsn0w/Absinthe

    iOS 3.1.3/3.1.2 Sn0wbreeze/Pwnagetool/Redsn0w/Spirit/Jailbreakme
    *Note: I'm stopping here. If you have a device with an even older fw version than this, you should upgrade if you have SHSHs saved for 4.2.1+. If you don't, you can achieve jailbroken 4.1 without SHSHs. Also, if you have the old boot (359.3) you can go to iOS 5 untethered. If you have new boot, you can have a tethered (semi-tethered with the Cydia tweak) iOS 5.*

    iPhone 3G
    iOS 4.2.1 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool; already on FW version - Redsn0w/recent version of Greenpois0n/Limera1n
    iOS 4.1 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool (need SHSHs); already on FW version - Redsn0w/Older version of Greenpois0n/Limera1n
    iOS 4.0.2/4.0.1/4.0 Untethered; custom FW - Sn0wbreeze/PwnageTool (need SHSHs); already on FW version - Redsn0w/Limera1n
    iOS 3.1.3/3.1.2 Sn0wbreeze or Pwnagetool/Redsn0w/Spirit/Jailbreakme
    *Note: I'm stopping here. If you have a device with an even older fw version than this, you should upgrade to 3.1.3. You may want 4.2.1 which is also doable without SHSHs, just like 3.1.3. 4.2.1 may be a bit laggy compared to 3.1.3, but it is doable (for some people, depending on preference and app dependency).*

    iPhone 2G
    *Note: You should be on 3.1.3 (max fw version available for this device) so anything lower isn't worth it, IMO. So upgrade if you haven't already. *
    iOS 3.1.x Sn0wbreeze/Pwnagetool/Redsn0w/Spirit/Jailbreakme

    This is a fantastic write-up of jailbreak terms that you should understand and be aware of anyway, and it will certainly help you understand the jb world better.

    I have a question for you.... Thanks alot for this, helps us new guys....

    I have: iphone 3GS 3.1.3 (Oldbootroom)

    Unlocked/Jailbroken using Jailbreakme.com + ultrasn0w

    It says on your guide, Restore without SHSH custom firmwares can be used, but only if already jailbroken.

    Would this then apply to me? can I use a custom firmware to restore to 4.0.1 or even restore to what im already on 3.1.3 ?? If so, how?

    You cannot use a custom firmware if jailbroken by jailbreakme.com. It has to be from a bottom jailbreak such as redsn0w, blackra1n, pwnage tool, sn0wbreeze.

  8. #6
    Here's another question then, since im on 3.1.3 and sn0wbreeze works on it, can I re-jailbreak with sn0wbreeze or is it a 1 time deal since I used jailbreakme.com I'm stuck with it?

    If you have SHSH then you can restore to 3.1.2 use blackra1n then you can use a custom ipsw. It all depends on what SHSH your device has as to what you can do.

    I can answer this, I wouldn't call myself an expert but i have been using Custom Firmware all along. If you can jailbreak with Snowbreeze, then you can always use Snowbreeze or Pwnage tools as long as you stay away from Stock Firmware.
    Custom Firmware will not flash your Baseband and therefore, as the Baseband is not touched everytime you do a restore, you can restore as many times as you want.
    If your Baseband somehow gets corrupted, like losing signal or No signal, then you will have to restore to Stock Firmware again and then do the respective jailbreak before proceeding to Custom Firmware.

    Nope, I don't have any SHSH's saved (well except for the current 4.1...)

    I just got my new iPhone 4 FW 4.1 (posting with it right now) and according to the guide I'm jailbreakable on jailbreakme.com, but according to the site nothing past 4.0.1 is doable yet. Thoughts?

    That's correct. Jailbreakme works only up to 4.0.1.

    Sorry, must've been a mistake. I'll fix it.

    Edit: everything under the 4.0.2-4.1 for iPhone 4 is "NO". So sorry again, you can't JB or unlock.

    Awesome, thanks so much. I did a quick check before buying and trusted your pinned tread.

    Oh well, guess I get to wait now, wonder how long.

    Nice post Annie, very quick guide for new people to see what options they have. If you wouldn't mind I would like to put a link to this in the post I put up a couple days ago.
