    Default Just got 3gs today. Any tips?
    I have already got a 3g jailbroken with redsnow on o2, but i have today got a 3gs on contract with orange. i am planning on jailbreaking this once i have the relative info. What advice could you give me?
    Oh, and im planning on using the new spirit jailbreak

    One more thing, before i plug it in it asks me to download the latest iTunes? should i or not?
    will it affect me being able to jailbreak the iphone?
    thanks in advance.

    find out what firmware you are running before doing anyhing else and register your SHSH with Cydia, and i think you mean you are planning to unklock, as you are already JB'ed


    if your firmware is 3.1.3, there currently is NO unlock.
    to check your firmware, goto settings-> general-> about -> look at version

    EDIT: i just noticed you were on 3.1.3 in your details area above

    i dont know of any restrictions on iTunes version. however make sure your phone is not set to automaticly update in iTunes and pretty well NEVER update your phones software when iTunes tells you to.

    anytime you update to Apple's latest firmware you run the risk of permanently locking your phone and removing your jailbreak.

    Make sure you register your SHSH with Cydia after jailbreaking with Spirit.

    I would update iTunes. It shouldn't affect Spirit.

    Nope as of right now you can only jailbreak your phone. The unlock is expected when 4.0 or the new iPhone drops.

    So far spirit is still working. So yes it will work to jb it. Not 100% if the teams are waiting on 4.0 or for the new iPhone so hard to say when. 4.0 should be fully announced at Apple's event on the 7th of June.
