Thread: I need help.......

  1. #1
    Question I need help.......
    Noob question, I used to have an iPhone 2G ages and ages ago and was unlocking that no problem. I am now thinking about buying an iPhone 3GS PAYG and was wondering where do I start? I obviously need to jailbreak it and unlock it. But won't it come with 3.0.1 installed? Will anything work with it?

    Sorry for asking but I just need some guidance

    I have been reading everywhere and I'm still a littl confused, can I use redsn0w on the iphone 3GS straight from the box or will i have to restore it to another firmware.....

    Since you didn't give much info here is a link that will help you. It is a tree type menu, follow it and click what applies. It will provide you with step by step instructions as well as links to files needed and pics too.

    Ok, will i be able to use redsn0w on the iphone out of the box or will i have to download the 3.0.1 firmware (from iclarrified) and restore it, or will it work on the iphone as soon as i open it?

    You'll be able to run redsn0w right out of the box. If the phone is on 3.0 I would suggest to just leave it there.

    Right I got my iPhone 3GS has 3.0 all activated now... Zagg Invisible Shield installed (was tough)

    So shall I jailbreak it? How would I go about it, will I have to point it to a 3.0 firmware or can I just run it without having to download any other firmware, as i have read in the following instructions http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=4447 that you have to restore the firware....

    correct, point it at the 3.0 ipsw, not the 3.0.1 ipsw, it will do its thing, figure out what phone your using, then run its jailbreak, you won't lose anything, infact if you just leave your phone for about 15 minutes, when you get back, it'll be just like your un-jailbroken phone, just with cydia. you wont have to resync it with itunes, nothing.
    The only thing I ask in return for helping, is that you click the thanks button, Thanks!
