What are the first 5 digits of your phone's serial number?He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Look at your serial # and determine if it new or old model

tks for your reply. i have found iclarified tutorial on how to jailbreak 3gs using Pwnage tool 9mac) 4.3.1
before i proceed with this, pls clarify if after doing this will i be able to retain my phone data? i u/stand that contacts, photos etc will be backed up by itunes (i use ver 9.2.1) but what about the messages sms etc? i need to save them too. what do you suggest? also all the apps i have on iphone, will they work too?

Before you start do a backup of your device via itune, with device connected sync the contact list, photo, memo, etc to your window's contact or outlook. Proceed to jb device after all it completed, you will come to screen where itune will ask if you want to setup with restore from backup or set as new! Select "new" then sync everything back to your device. Some of your apps will be sync over as well, they should work. However the hacked apps will be lost, you will need to download them again. Remember under info tab on itune will allow you to sync what ever you want to keep to window/ outlook, then sync them back once your done!!

Other then be able to run some of the new apps and a few new features that comes with 4.XX.XX like folders, the game room multi task etc. You will give up some speed going to 4.3.1. Btw you best save your SHSH for 4.3.1 because 4.3.2 is to be release soon, as with any new iOS "do not update" until it's safe

btw , what do you mean by "save your shsh for 4.3.1" ? as advised previousl;y i had done foll:
gone on TU and downloaded and saved foll shsh (whether it was on phone or mac i dont know)
iphone 3gs 4.1 (8B117)-3782425279988
iphone 3gs 4.3.1 (8G4) - 3782425279988
but the log showed foll msgs
"Cydia does not have your shsh for iphone 3gs ver 3.0.1 (7A400) there is no way for you to get them. sorry you are too late"
the above was one of the logs, it did also say
"you have saved your iphone 3gs 4.1 (8B117) and 4.3.1 (8G4) shsh locally and the request was sent to Cydia. This means that Cydia does have your Shsh. Do not bug Semaphore about the cydia home page showing this version"

My bad, I forgot that you already did that! :-) just a habit to tell people to save their SHSH. Without SHSH you can't do anything!

Sorry if this is a repeat question:
I have firmware 3.1.3 and I am looking to upgrade to 4.2.1. I don't need an unlock. What steps should I take? The steps in the first post don't seem to apply to me. My 3gs is already jailbroken

From what I've read, 4.3.1 isn't the most stable and has a few issues. Is that not true? And is there additional steps I have to take if i'm already jailbroken?
04-12-2011, 06:24 PM #815
I've had no stability issues on my ipad or iphone 4. I've loaded 4.3.1 and jailbroke on a half dozen devices used daily by people (iphones and ipads) without any complaints thus far.
Nothing to do other than update the IOS (through itunes), and then run redsn0w to jailbreak.

Ok, so can someone give me the order of steps or correct me where i might be wrong:
TinyUmbrella saved blob> itunes restore to 4.3.2 FW> use TU to kick out of recovery> Redsn0w to Jailbreak> unlock with ultrasn0w

Unlockable baseband 1.59.00.
04-26-2011, 08:08 PM #820
Personally, I'd do it in this order
-Run TinyUmbrella to save SHSH
-Download 4.3.2 ipsw
-use pwnage tool on the ipsw to create a custom ipsw that will include the jailbreak and not update your baseband.
-put iphone into DFU mode
-restore with iTunes using the custom IPSW.
-Once restore is complete, open cydia, and then install ultrasn0w to unlock
