Geez so many helpful people before I even get a chance to respond. Lol well glad the community is helping you
I'll agree with the others, if it were me I'd stay on 4.2.1. 4.3.3 is "ok" I suppose, I just don't see a reason to upgrade and start all over again.

Hi again, this is my original post!
Now I downloaded: redsn0w_win_0.9.6rc16 [ or do I need 0.9.6rc18?]; Sn0wbreeze 2.7.3; !
Last question [I hope, ], do I need the latest iTunes and will Cydia be installed, there Annie says [Don't try to select the baseband upgrade or Cydia.]?
Told you I am a greenhorn!!!

Yes, you need the latest itunes.
Cydia is preinstalled into the custom firmware that snowbreeze makes. So after you shift-restore to that cydia will be there already.. You are only using redsnow to enter pwned DFU so that you will not receive an error when trying to restore to the custom firmware.
Couple questions first though. Do you have a official carrier sim that you can activate with after the restore and do you know if you have a old or new bootrom 3GS?

I don't have a official carrier sim so I need the unlock, and about old or new bootrom , don't know, can I check that somewhere?
07-08-2011, 11:17 AM #949
Use idetector to find out what bootrom you have: iH8sn0w.com | Jailbreak your iPod touches and iPhones
Without a official carrier sim (even an inactive one will work) it will mean you will need to hactivate the custom firmware which causes the youtube/push notification/battery problems. You will need to use something called SAM after the restore to fix that. You can worry about that later though.

do i have to upgrade iTunes (have iTunes 9.0.2 because of Blackra1n) to check the bootrom?

07-08-2011, 11:46 AM #952
OK, have a new bootrom, what now? Can I proceed as said in iAnnies thread? And if possible any link for using SAM after I restore.
Thanks in advance!

When creating the CFW be sure to select the "hacktivate" if I can recall you're with T-Mobile so you will need the official sim card to "activate" once is jbroken and install ultrasnow to unlock. Just use someone sim card (AT&T ) to activate reboot and you're done
Hey Simon, I just jail broken my iPad 2 via jailbreakme 3.0 to my suprise Cydia 1.1.2 don't include "manage" option where you can install app ********** any idea?

By the way my country is 5000 miles away from US and AT&T, I use a EAGLE MOBILE
sim card, and this is a local mobile operator!
So any solution, for unlocking my 3gs if I don't have a AT&T simcard to"activate"?

Upgrading/jailbreaking/unlocking- 3gs 3.1.2 to 4.3.3 preserving BB!
Build costum FW with Sn0wbreeze, JB with Redsnow 0.9.6rc16, unlocked ultrasn0w!
Just followed the steps as in Annie's thread, and everything went smooth. Now I have my iPhone 3gs on iOS 4.3.3 (05.11.07)!
Thanks a lot guys for your answers, especially Simon!
Now am checking the battery drain problems, tried to install SAM at Cydia through binger.com, but couldn't!
Any suggestion, and do I really need SAM???
