    Default Question on jailbreaking a 3g S
    Hello
    I should be getting a Iphone 3g S today. I would think it would come with 3.01 OS. Am I able to jailbreak this phone? If it is at all possible, can anyone tell me how its done? I would appreciate any help. I think 3.0 OS can on the 3G S, but not sure on the 3.01.

    Thank You

    This should really be in the Jailbreak section rather than news...

    Yes you can JB.
    Just use RedSn0w 0.8 but you will need to use the 3.0ipsw (you will still be on 3.01 though)

    You might need iTunes 8.20 as some people have had problems with the 3GS and 8.21

    Enjoy

    1 - jailbreaking is a pretty easy process. (Once you understand how 2!)
    2 - Redsn0w is a lightweight, multi-platform jailbreaking and unlocking tool for the
    • iPhone 2G (original iPhone),
    • the iPhone 3G,
    • iPhone 3GS and also the
    • iPod touch (first generation and second generation).

    Just download and read here:
    redsn0w

    You can always restore back to the original state using iTunes if something goes wrong - but, pls....READ, READ and READ again so you understand completely how to perform the jailbreak.
    Do hope that helps

    Please do NOT click on the redsn0w link in Sirsture's post!
    That site is a con and you really, really should avoid at all costs.

    Instead just download directly through the Dev Team's torrent. It's safer too since you know it's not corrupted.
    Quickpwn.com are very bad posers that profit off of the Dev Team's hard work unfortunately

    But here's a GOOD guide for you

    I always feel sorry for the guy in the iPhone commercials. He always gets a call right in the middle of trying to do something
