    3.0 and 3.0.1 can but not 3.1.
    Use iTunes 8.2, do not update to iTunes 9 yet.

    8.2.1 is for 3.0.1 so you will be fine. Just do not update iTunes.
    There are huge differences in the firmwares. You will love it.
    Use redsn0w to Jailbreak and unlock. Redsn0w can be found in the Downloads/Categories section of the header bar on any page you are on.

    Do NOT let iTunes select the FW 4 you - you will be disappointed.
    Download here and select manually in iTunes: iPhone Firmwares download | iPhone Firmware
    Do hope that helps

    just sync with iTunes when you are done and it will restore your contacts and music.

    Make sure you set up as a New Phone, not restore from a back-up.

    Once detected by iTunes - HOLD the shift button and click restore - a window will pop-up allowing u to select the file.

    U also need the FW 3.0 - that is the FW to use for REDSN0W (Do NOT use 3.0.1 here!!! - even if it is in yr iPhone)

    I would suggest just staying at 3.0 for now. The new jailbreak for 3.1 should be out soon and you can update then.
