    Default iPhone 3G jailbreak/unlock
    Ok...I have an unlocked iPhone 3G with software 3.13 and modem firmware 05.12.01. I don't want to put the newest unlock because I don't want ipad software on this thing.

    My question is, is which itunes version, which redsn0w version should I download so I can update this thing to just 4.0 so I can jailbreak it/unlock it?

    Thanks for anyones help.

    first do you have your SHSH files saved for your iphone for 4.0?
    the 3G on restore does soft SHSH check to allow the upgrade.
    If you don't have these saved I don't think you will be able to goto just 4.0.

    second get sn0wbreze. if you are only going to 4.0 get version 2.0.2. goto iH8sn0w.com and get it or get version 2.1 for firmware 4.1. Either way it allows you to create a custom firmware with out upgrading your baseband. Especially since 5.12.01 is unlockable.

    for example,
    I currently have a 3g on 4.1 with the 04.26.08 baseband unlocked with ultrasn0w. firmware was cooked with sn0wbreeze. runs great no problems.

    third once you have jailbroken your phone search google for "cydia 1.0.3366-1"
    download the .deb file and install it using iFile.
    The free version works fine.
    The cydia version that came with sn0wbreeze is the older one. The version I listed above is a newer one that saurik fixed a lot of stuff in. it runs smoother and faster, but it does not show up as an upgrade in cydia. you have to install the .deb file.
    It runs so much better, especially for 3G iphone with limited RAM and processor speed.


    Hope this helps.
