    Default Iphone 3gs w/ iOS 4.0, cannot jailbreak, please please help!
    Hello, Sorry if this topic has been posted before, i'm just really frustrated at the moment

    i just purchased a iphone 3gs 16gb , old bootrom, it appears to never been jailbroken before, and it's upgraded to the iOS 4.0, i been trying different methods but no luck at all. all the methods i have read requires previously jailbroken iphones

    is there anything i can do right now?

    how long is the usual wait for something to come up to solve this problem?

    you can use tinyumbrella to check and see if any 3.x.x shsh's are saved on cydia and restore to one of them if there are, if not then at this point there is nothing you can do to jailbreak your phone, as far as a release date on a new jailbreak unfortunately the devs never give release dates so you will just have to be patient
