    you're not supposed to use Redsn0w with the official firmware. you're supposed to use it with the GOLD MASTER release.

    you should update your phone with the official release, then jailbreak with the GOLD MASTER release.

    and this is all assuming you're using an iPhone 3G.

    You can't get 3G on tmobile with an ATT phone. If you don't disable 3G the. The phone will just search and search and search for a 3G signal using allot of battery. Tmobile uses a 1700 band for 3G service, ATT uses 850 for 3G. You will not get 3G on tmo service. It's a hardware restraint.

    redsn0w is out, probably beta.. but I was wondering, for 3G [not 3GS] is there any point of keeping modem firmware at 04.26.08?

    this is correct. use the beta 5-3 for your iphone 3g or ipt 2g. 3gs still waiting! i'm sure it'll be out pretty quick tho!

    a side question though. has any other 3g owners notice that the official fw runs slower than the GM?? mine seems a lot laggier than the GM i was running before getting the official 4.0. what tha dilly yo??

    OK Do this -
    1. ( Make sure you backed up and synced all your info ) Go to setting - General - Reset - Erase All Content and Settings
    2. After that you will need iTunes 9.2 and then download iOS4 and install
    3. You will need redsnow .095b5-3 and iOS4 GM
    4. Run redsnow .095b5-3 and point it to iOS4 GM to jailbreak your 3G iPhone
    5. Now update Cydia
    6. Add resource repo666.ultrasn0w.com for Yellowsn0w for unlocking

    That should be it.

    the beta 5-3 unlocks pretty much ALL basebands now! so you can unlock up to the 05.13.04 w/ ultrasn0w 0.93!

    heya all. I have no idea what exactly Saurik did but DO NOT download those esential updates from cydia. on my 3GS after finishing the download they went into a infinite Reload Springboard. I went ahead and held down lock and power buttons. That put it into a 5:30 minute apple logo then it came back out to the normal screen. Cydia however is more or less inert and will NOT install anything. it gives a POSIX connection refused. this is on wifi and 3G service... Im testing Rock right now. Oh and my theory for why it is messing it up is that he updated so many essential tweaks at once that they have some combined side effect on cydia.

    Rock is confirmed to work. It can still have full functionality. GO ROCK

    The iPhone Dev Team has released ultrasn0w 0.93 for unlocking your new iOS 4. Simply add the Cydia repo: repo666.ultrasn0w.com. This version of ultrasn0w will unlock basebands 04.26.08 thru 05.13.04. If your unsure, that means that ultrasn0w unlocks ALL basebands since iPhone OS 3.1. Even more specifically, 04.26.08, 05.11.07, 05.15.01, and 05.13.04. Remember to disable 3G on T-Mobile USA.
    I'm assuming that was meant to say 05.12.01?

    Default Way to jailbreak 4.0
    Okay. You can jailbreak 4.0 in two different ways, first, if you are running the GM of 4.0, just use redsn0w 9.5. If you have the final version, download redsn0w 9.5 and download the GM version of 4.0. Use that in redsn0w. They are the same build! I have done it twice and let me tell you, multitasking and wallpapers ROCK. the best part, it is an untethered jailbreak too. Have fun jailbreaking.

    PS. Yay! my first post, hopefully there are many more!
