    It is fake. Since the site is made up as a iPhone site most ad places just use a feed that puts ads gear'd to the sites. Sometimes you get ads that lead to false sites.

    With a 2G it's not a problem. Just run RedSn0w 0.92 and use the 3.12 ipsw and you can JB and unlock your 2G iPhone on FW 3.13

    Whatever happened to "once jailbroken, always jailbroken"? I remember a while back that the dev team said something to that effect. I forget what firmware it was. But I do remember that once you jb, you would always be able to.

    Unless your phone is one of the very first 3G iPhones (week 28 of 2008) you can not unlock. You can JB using RedSn0w but you can't downgrade your BaseBand so can not unlock.

    Once you have JB using RedSn0w you can check your s/no and if the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits are 828 you are OK - if later then you can't downgrade.

    I have a 6 day old iPhone 3GS on firmware 3.1.3, with baseband 05.12.01 on an MC model. I guess I'm not going to be jailbreaking my phone anytime soon?

    I just had a question.
    I want to get a new iphone and currently am on 3.0 FW.
    Can I get the new iphone and jailbreak it? Is it possible?
    Can I re-jailbreak my jailbroken phone?
    Reason I want the new one is because my battery sucks but
    also I need a restore really bad and could live with
    a new jailbreak to keep 3.0 goto 1.2 or 1.3.

    Without knowing what sort of phones people are asking about it is very difficult to answer.

    A 3G can be JB on any FW released so far using RedSn0w, but if you want to unlock you have to upgrade using pwnage to preserve your BB.

    being a very new and novice user, am afraid of taking any step. last one was to unknowingly upgrade to 3.1.3 for which i am still
    mine is 3GS 16gb (serial #4,5 are 4,3) and i face same problem of non-recognized sim and usb - itunes logo doesnt go (was unlocked sometime back by my brother). being at 3.1.3, is it possible just to jailbreak and use it as an ipod touch? i know the unlock is not available, but will redsn0w work for me?

    thanks in advance

    Where are you going to get the new iphone?

    If it is from carrier your probality going to get a 3gs with 3.1.3 firmware and new boot rom, just my opinion

    If you buy from ebay and the seller says unlocked just ask him the firmware and bb so you will know! Also the 4 and 5 digits or the serial! If he is selling saying it is unlocked he knows what the phone is going to be used for! If it is unlocked and firmware is at 3.1.3 Pwnage will jailbreak and you should be able to use any sim!

    Circuit City has 3gs for sale and it says they are unlocked! Cost a arm and both legs! 3gs 16 was about $800 and 32 was $1000! Thats a lot of money!

    Please describe the " the battery sucks "

    Unfortunately the 3GS on the new iBoot can not be JB on 3.13 at the moment.
    Can you borrow a SIM from the carier it's locked too? If so you can at least activate it so you can use as an iPod until the next FW is unlocked.

    I got screwed on this one. I have an older 3g (old enough to be out of wty) I am repairing that was on 2.2.1 and had to be upgraded for the apps to work on 3.x so I had to restore it to 3.1.3 since it had never been on 3.x and has no hashes. Now I have the new baseband on the 3g phone and can't unlock it for the guy, just jailbreak.

    No way around that one! Had to do it.
