    Default Tethered 3GS and jailbreakme
    I am running 3.1.2 and have a tethered jailbreak that of course requires me to be plugged in to reboot.

    I am more than happy on 3.1.2 and with my iPhone the way it is but would like to be able to reboot without PC. Can I run jailbreakme on top of what I currently have or do I have to restore and then do it?

    Anyone with my problem try this yet? I hate to ask a question that has all ready been answered but if it has been addressed I did not find it.

    Thanks

    You have to restore first before applying a new jailbreak

    I was in the same situation with you running 3.1.2 tethered jailbreak with blackra1n for my 3GS with new bootrom. I updated to 4.0.1 and used jailbreakme.com and so far working perfectly! No more tethered reboot.

    Thanks a lot!

    I was thinking that but afraid to upgrade my base band. I am guessing that isn't a problem and I should just go for it.

    Think the new 4.01 is worth the trouble or were you just as happy on 3.1.2?

    Thanks again for the response.

    I was not happy with the tethered jb on my 3.1.2 that's about it. I tried to update to 3.1.3 before but have no luck since Apple won't allow it. I have no regret updating to 4.0.1. at all!

    Will I lose all my Cydia app if I upgrade to 4.0?

    You will have to jailbreak it after you upgrade then you will have Cydia again.
