    Default About to sell my 3GS and have a question about restoring...
    I am about to restore my 3GS. It is on the new bootrom so if I do a restore it will update me to the newest firmware.

    Don't I need to stay on 3.1.3 in order for the person that buys my iphone to be able to unlock it for another carrier?

    If so what should I do just a Shift restore with custom firmware?

    Havent dont this in a long time so just a little confused and don't want to mess it up.

    I recently jb it with that new one....Spirit. I had the tether jailbreak before with blackrain

    I got it about 6 months ago.

    Edit: Also I meant to mention that between now and selling it my g/f is using it since we sold her older 3G. We want to sync it with her iTunes. Right now it's synced with my iTunes but I don't use it any more since I have the iphn 4.

    Oh also this phone is SHSH for 3.1.2 and 3.1.3....pretty sure those are the two I have on cydia

    At the moment you for the person to stay unlocked then you will have to stay on 3.1.3. Since your SHSH for 3.1.3 is on file then you can restore to that and then use spirit to jailbreak then use ultrasn0w to unlock. Currently there is not a solid jailbreak for the new bootrom for 4.0.

    To restore to a firmware that you SHSH is on you have to edit your host file to point at Saurik's IP.

    So, open the file CWindows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts (Windows) or /etc/hosts (Mac OS X) and add the following entry to the bottom of the file.

    74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com
