My friend has a 3GS, she had some issues with it a while back so we restored it. unfortunately it was bought from ebay, so when we restored the phone we found that it was locked to a carrier (we think)
so i had used the greenpoison JB tool i think it was to allow me to install the program to unlock the carrier sim. (cant remember what it was called but the tool used a pineapple as a logo lol)
anyways, now that i see some tools are out for a iOS 5+ JB i was wondering....
can she now upgrade to 5.0 or 5.0.1?
can she untether JB it?
and can she use something that will unlock it to use any carriers sim?
i have a feeling that this new Absinthe tool would work, but for the sake of being careful i better ask questions

No Absinthe is only for A5 devices.
You would have to use redsn0w 0.9.10b4 or pwnagetool/snowbreeze.
There is an untethered jailbreak for 5.0.1
What is the Baseband on the phone?

thanks for the reply,
i believe that the phone is still on the old bootrom. I think it was downgraded to iOS4.1 after they upgraded to iOS4.2.
dont stress on it too much, my friend tends to procrastinate too much, and i have said to her that 3GS is so yesterday and to get with the times lol.
thanks again for your help
