    Default unlock and jailbreak 3g on 3.0
    okay, the foreign exchange student that is living with us just bought a used 3g running 3.0 she wants me to JB and unlock it. What is the easiest way, I used spirit to jb my phone and it was real easy, will that work for the jb? Then what do I use to unlock?

    Spirit jailbreak will not work on 3.0, if you want unlock and at the same time to upgrade to 3.1.3. The easiest way to do but not as easy as spirit jb. Are you ready ???

    Make a custom firmware of 3.1.3

    For PC > download snowbreeze 1.5.2
    For Mac > download Pwnage Tools 3.1.5

    Once you have created the custom firmware, it will be placed on the desktop.

    For PC : Click Shift Key and Press Restore (Itunes) and browse to the cfw you just created.
    let it restore. sit back and have a cup of Capuccino. Once restored , you are jailbroken at 3.1.3 already. Go to Cydia, install Ultrasn0w to unlock, reboot.
    You are all set

    For Mac : Click Home key and Press Restore (Itunes) and browse to the cfw you created. The rest will be the same as above.

    It is as easy as A,B,C...Lol

    OR One last thing, ask the foreign students to buy you a six packs of beers , don't forget to courier to me..

    I thought you could not unlock the 3.1.3 yet or is that only 3gs?

    if she does not want to upgrade to 3.1.3, can I still use redsnow for jb then ultrasnow for unlock?

    You cant unlock firmwares. So you cant unlock 3.1.3. Unlocks are for basebands. You can upgrade her phone by shift+restore to 3.1.2, jailbreak with Blackra1n and unlock with Blacksn0w (comes within Blackra1n app).

    Google a Blackra1n guide for further help.

    It all depends on whether you still have the 04.26.08 baseband to unlock with Ultrasn0w and 05.11.07 baseband to unlock with Blacksn0w.

    If you do it the correct way, you can preserve your baseband.

    You guys are getting confused....LOL
