    Are you already jailbroken ? Just follow the link given by Dhamien , you do not need a restore.

    Well I have my iphone 3GS jailbroken for awhile, and so far no problems no complaints. Things is i am going to be at boot camp in a few weeks, then my ojt for the military. Thing is I cant use my cell phone durings basic (9 weeks)but I can use it at my ojt which is 18 weeks.

    So what I am asking is there a jailbreak for the 3.1.2 05.11.07 that will allow me to turn the phone off and on without jailbreaking everytime? I wont have access to a computer to be able to keep jailbreaking the phone.

    With an old bootrom your jailbreak wont be tethered. If it is the new bootrom you can use Spirit for an untethered jailbreak tho you will need a SIM from the official carrier of the phone to activate it to use Spirit.

    I thnk you need the unlock, if you want untethered jailbreak, you have to restore to 3.1.2 again before applying Spirit Jailbreak. You can only restore to 3.1.2 if you have 3.1.2 shsh on file with Cydia. If you do not have it , stay with tethered jailbreak for now as you will lose your unlock if you restore to 3.1.3.

    if I used pwnage tool and have a custom 3.1.3 with baseband 5.11.07 this means that I have an older bootrom 3GS correct? (I am currently jailbroken with ATT)

    Also if that is correct, if I install blacksn0w RC2 from the cydia.pushfix.info repo it should unlock and I should be able to change my SIM to say tmobile? Or do I have to create a new custom IPSW with activate iphone enabled?

    3 qustions sorry about that but with the new phone coming out I want to be able to use my 3GS as a backup/world phone for when I travel this summer

    You don't have to restore to an activated cfw. You can just unlock with blacksn0w and it will be good on any sim including official carrier
