    Default 3GS 04.26.08 from iOS 4 to iOS 5.0.1
    A friend has asked if upgrading is possible while keeping the unlock.

    Since I saw his bb is 04.26.08, I assume it was possible. Reading the forums, there's people saying that you have to upgrade your bb to a higher one?

    He has a 3GS. Not sure which version of his iOS 4 is.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I wasn't sure which guide was for me.

    I found this guide for the jailbreaking part.
    iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [5.0.1]

    As for the sticky you mentioned,
    [HOW TO] Fix for Ultrasn0w on 5.0.1
    Is that suitable for this situation?

    Thanks

    Sorry I really need to update these stickies. That fix for ultrasn0w is no longer needed. Don't use it.

    You can create a custom fw with pwnagetool if you have a Mac. You can also do the same with Redsn0w for both Mac and Windows. The idea is definitely to use a custom fw.
