    hi all,

    I'm looking at buying an iPhone 3gs today but needs to be jailbroken, I'm looking at buying one used. If its on iOS 5.1.1 can i unthethered jailbreak?

    I'm so confused used to be a lot easier before

    any help would be great as don't want to get one and not be a able to jailbreak

    thanks

    believe 5.1.1 is most recent?

    You want an iphone unlocked but not by using Ipad baseband ( 6.15.00 ) cos this breaks your gps function. You want atleast saved shsh blob for 5.0.1 and preferably Old bootrom because it wil be always untethered jailbreak for any upgrade.

    Not sure this is the sire you should be on to look for sellers for iPhone 3GS but,
    iPhone 3GS(New Bootrom) is untethered on all firmwares apart from 5.1; 5.1.1. Downgrading is possible provided you have the correct SHSH blob for the corresponding firmware you want.
    Be wary of blacklisted phones if you're buying used phones. If you do end up with a blacklisted phone (barred) then you pretty much have bought an iPod Touch
    iPhone 3GS(Old Bootrom) is untethered on EVERY firmware and it will always be untethered for new firmwares
    To make it easy, make sure you buy an iPhone 3GS on 5.0.1 or lower
    And yes, iOS 5.1.1 is the most recent update at the moment
    If I helped don't fear to press the Thanks button (:

    Ios 5.1.1 is tethered, but wont be for long, go to pod2g on twitter to see updates on the jailbreak (should be out in weeks.

    If you have an oldbootrom it will be unthered forever but its very very rare and unlikely you have one.
    If i helped you in any way and/or caused you to brick your phone, click the botton in my post
