    It doesnt matter if your sim is in or out. To remove jailbreak all you have to do is restore.

    If you have one of those basebands then updating to the 6.15 baseband is your only option to unlock right now. Just be aware of what you are doing though before going through with it.

    There is no word that there will be a different unlock. So this is the only option for you right now if you want to unlock.

    Did you find an answer to your question? I have 3GS, 4.1, 5.14.02 BB, with an old Bootrom -do you know if I upgrade to 6.15, will it be tethered or untethred?

    The baseband does not determine if you are tethered or not. The firmware does. 4.1 is untethered for all devices.

    4.1 is untethered but 4.2.1 is till only tethered. An untethered version is under way as far as I understand.

    I thought 4.2.1 jailbreak was untethered for older devices like 3G and old bootrom 3GS unless I'm wrong.

    Quick question though,
    say I jailbreak 4.1 and install modem firmware 6.15 to unlock, how exactly can I upgrade to 4.2.1 later since 6.15 doesnt let you restore to stock?

    Isn't it that you have to restore the firmware that you'd want to jailbreak before jailbreaking and from what I've read if you use 6.15 you can't restore to apple firmware anymore?

    Also, the dev team have said they will try and downgrade 6.15 but didn't they say you can't downgrade?

    You can either restore to a custom firmware or update (not restore) to 4.2.1. You will still get an error but tiny umbrella will work to kick out of recovery.

    Would you recommend jailbreaking at 4.1 and to 6.15 or just upgrade to 4.2.1 and 6.15 for an iPhone 3G?

    Is the 4.2.1. jailbreak untethered for 3G or only the 4.1?

    Also, the 6.15 has been having issues with GPS and battery draining (there is a fix I read) which is making me kinda wanting to wait.

    Doesnt matter too much 4.1 and 4.2.1 are pretty similar. It is untethered for iPhone 3G always.

    You will only have battery issues if you hactivate and can use SAM to fix that.

    Ok thanks.

    I'll just borrow a friends Rogers SIM to activate then just unlock it.

    Also, how do I make custom firmwares just in case for the future?
