    Take a look at the Serial number. xxx##xxxxxx The two ## numbers in the serial are the production week (The fourth and fifth numbers basically.

    If it's week 40 or after, it's almost guaranteed to be the a bootrom. If it's 39, it can be a either the old or new(It's when they switched the bootrom in production. If it's 38 or earlier, it'll be the old bootrom.
    if the first 2 of the serial are "5K" that means it is a Refurb and could be either. Run f0recast to determine bootrom

    My week is "50" but instead of MC like I keep reading the new bootrom says, mine is MB. Do I have the old or new?

    Please help !!!
    If your model # begins with "MC" then you have the new bootrom. If it is not "MC" then you have the old bootrom. Also, the 4th and 5th # in your serial is lower then 40 then you have an old bootrom.

    You have the new bootrom.

    You shouldn't have any issues. The only ones that are out of luck are those with a 3Gs with the new bootrom, but I personally think that it's still safer to wait until more things are updated for 4.0, and until the updates and jb's are stable.

    I have been on this site since the start and unlocked 150 or so phones (before these simple programs) but have never been so confused. I currently have an unlocked 3G on 3.1.2 with the 4.26.08 modem firmware. Can I safely use this program to upgrade to 4.0 and still be unlocked?

    Best advice for new or experienced users is to just read. Read all the posts. Go to other forums and read all those posts. The more you know before attempting any update or jailbreak the better.

    And knowing is half the battle!

    If you don't know for sure, then download and use f0recast to check it out.

    Build a new 4.0 custom firmware and DFU restore to it.. then unlock with ultrasn0w.

    Everyone with a PC needs to check out InsanelyMac or Kext.com to install OSX86 and be able to use OSX and Windows. I am currently running OSX 10.6.4 on my hp Pavilion a6300t!

    Hackintosh all the way baby! With an official Snow Leopard disk of course.

    Ok so instead of reading through posts like they tell you to all the time you went ahead and did it without reading up on it first. Now that my little rant is over.

    Go over to iClarified.com and follow the instructions there on how to use redsnow.

    Try using iRecovery. It might help you get off the connect to itunes screen. I've had that problem before after upgrading, and iRecovery worked for me.

    open activity monitor, and quite itunes helper. Before you plug phone into mac.

    This some times helps me avoid 1600 and other errors when Jailbreaking.

    Also did you put iphone in to dfu mode using PWNAGE. This also helps ensure custom ISP are not blocked by itunes.

    I am waiting until more jailbreak apps have been updated, I'm just getting everything ready. Thanks for the info.
    If I can't mod it...I don't want it.
