    what you need really need to know is what firmware u are running and whether u have the old or new bootrom (iBoot) as that determines if it a tethered jailbreak or not...if it is already on 3.1.3 and has never been jailbroken then there is no jailbreak available at this time for your phone

    Go to Settings>General>About and look at your serial number. If the 3rd 4th and 5th digits of the serial number are less than 940, you have the old bootrom and can run an untethered jailbreak. However, the above poster is correct in that you will not be able to jailbreak at this time if you are running firmware 3.1.3, regardless of what version of the bootrom you have.

    Not necessarily correct,

    I have 012 and I have the old iBoot

    Yeah, the serial number can only really be used to give an indication. To be sure, one should look for the iBoot version for themselves.
