    Default New user/old phone
    Hi All,
    I have this 3G 16GB, version 2.2.1, F/W-02.30.03. I have tried to restore it so that I can remove my friends info & input mine. iTunes wanted to upgrade to the firmware, I was told not to do this if, I wanted to JB. I am in need of someone to walk me through removing his stuff & JBing. Thanks for your time.

    a 3g can be jailbroken on any firmware so pick your poison...if u need an unlock stay away from 3.1.3 unless you create a custom firmware with pwnagetool (mac) or find and download one created with pwnagetool if you have a pc

    Unlock means that it could work w/any carrier correct? I'm not looking for that if that's the case.

    Are you able to answer any of my other questions/willing to help?

    I have just tried blackra1n to JB. iTunes instructed me to restore the phone. Will this be a wise idea since it will upgrade the firmware?

    Default Version 2.2.1
    Version 2.2.1, is the same as software? I keep seeing software and firmware downloads. what is the difference between the two.
    My modem firmware is 02.30.03, should I upgrade this also before jailbreaking?
    As I've said before, this is all new to me & I really do not want to screw it up! Thanks in advance!
