Hello everyone! It's been well over year since I lasted posted here on this great website. That said, I'm completely out of the loop in terms of my skills/knowledge on what to do for my Iphone.
I haven't backed up and re-jailbreaked my Iphone in almost 2 years. It lags bad and I can't load any apps from Cydia, etc. Now I want to do a fresh install all over again.
My questions are:
1. Is firmware 4.0 better than 3.0 or does it matter?
2. Am I able to upgrade to 4.0 and jaibreak/unlock using the latest itunes? (I just upgraded to W7 64bit and haven't installed itunes yet)

You're not supposed to unzip. If it came as .zip all you do is rename the .zip to .ipsw

After searching around the site and reading threads till my eyes blur I think I know what to do, but before I mess up and loose my unlock can you confirm what I plan is correct?
3GS version 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 JB with Spirit and unlock with Ultrasn0w.
I think I want to go to version 4.0 / 4.0.1 / 4.0.2
I have my SHSH for 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.1 stored locally and on Cydia (using Tiny Umbrella) and iSHSHHit.
I have downloaded PwnageTool and iPhone2,1_4.0_8A293_Restore.ipsw and iPhone2,1_4.0.1_8A306_Restore.ipsw
Do I use PwnageTool to create the a custom .ipws?
Will this keep my base band?
After restore to custom via iTunes then JB using Jailbreakme, and unlock with Ultrasn0w?
Thanks in advance, and sorry to ask for help after the great how to at the top of this thread.

PwnageTool will both preserve the unlock (baseband) AND jailbreak.
And optionally activate too Although it's always better to use an official SIM to activate.

Current on Tmo with 3GS, 5.13.04 6.4. Used TU to get back to 3.1.2 from 4.1. Was gotten from a friend that used cydia for SHSH. Have XP Pro and Win7 Ult x64.
Ok so 3GS got home button wet and now I am having more issues. Bought home button and its on its way BUT phone rebooted and now just has apple and sometimes reboots when it wants but got backup while it was doing this. Tried to use TU and itunes 9.0 to get 3.1.2 back up but keep getting error 3014 from itunes no matter what I try. <<<cant find alot of info on this issue.
Found one on craigslist that looks like its been on att for whole time without jailbreak. Need to know if I can get it to 3.1.? as i have heard 4.0-> runs slow or slows 3GS down.?
Craigslist phone>>3GS, 5.13.04 on 4.0 now. Have Have asked for them to use jailbreakme with their SIM.
Can use TU. Can edit Commcenter, plist... Not a total noob but have read some much stuff that cant figure out straight answer. Or I may just be so frustrated that I cant see. Feel really lost without iphone, didnt think this thing was that much a part of my life.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sorry if I need to start my own post but saw others asking with similar issues.

Hello, I'm from India.
I got an iPhone 3G from the US a few months back and I was stupid enough to upgrade it to iOS 4.1.
After a month of waiting, I unlocked it using the iPad 6.15.00 method.
However, the phone is incredibly slow and I would like to revert back to iOS 3.1.3.
I'm aware of the tiny umbrella method. But after I downgrade, will I get the 'SIM card not supported error?' How do I get rid of that? I'm from India and I can't have any AT&T SIMs.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi guys, I'm a newbie here and will probably have a gripload of questions. I want to thank you for your help in advance.
I'm on a 3GS, 4.1(8B117) firmware, 05.14.02 baseband (I would like to unlock), I do not have any SHSH files (this phone has never been jailbroken or unlocked before), I have not used TinyUmbrella, I have the old Bootrom -[iBoot-395.3]; it was made in 2009 week 31. And I'm working with a WinXP machine.
It's my understanding that due to my 05.14.02 baseband, I would need to upgrade to the iPad 6.15 baseband to unlock, correct? I understand my GPS may not function properly after doing this.
Or, am I able to go back to 3.1.3 firmware (without any SHSHs)?
Do you recommend that I upgrade to 4.2.1 first or keep 4.1?
Will my unlock be untethered, since I have the Old Bootrom?
Would I use redsn0w to jailbreak, and then use untrasn0w via Cydia to unlock?
Should I back up my SHSH blobs/hashes/files first? And what's the difference between blobs, hashes, and files (maybe they are the same or I don't really need to know)???
Looking forward to your answers! Happy New Year!

I would suggest going to 4.2.1 first since you have the old bootrom so it will be untethered. Then yes, if you want to unlock you would have to update your baseband to the iPad one and you may lose gps.
And yes you should use tiny umbrella to save your SHSH. It doesnt matter if you do it first or not though.

Do you have a list of which versions of redsn0w work for which iOS versions?
