    Default Sorry if in wrong place...I want to jailbreak a 3g iphone...
    My dad is getting a ne iphone 4. I going to inherit his IPhone 3 and this ones os is 3.0.1. Now I think its jailbroken...he can theter for free....

    tldr-Iphone is 3.0.1 might be jailbroken.. I want to update to os 4 and have it jailbroken. Before I do this I want to wipe out everything and then jail break it.

    I have extensive experience with modding things. My psp wii xbox and current phone are modded. So just point me to the proper guides!

    On a 3G phone I'd recommend either staying on 3.1.x or going to 4.1. 4.0-4.0.2 lags the 3G badly. What you wanna do is jb where it is at right now with Redsn0w. Then create a custom firmware with Sn0wbreeze (newest version) for 4.1 with a stock fw you'll have to download. Then shift+restore in iTunes to the 4.1 custom fw you create with S.B.

    Ok... Well what would the Custom Firmware allow me to do.... I'm a bit confused once you told me to update it to 4.1.... didn't you state that it was slow and laggy? If you could clarify then thanks.

    4.0-4.0.2 is laggy. Not 4.1, that fixes the 3G phones lag.

    The custom firmware is just another way to jailbreak the phone. So after you restore to your newly created custom firmware, you'll not have to do anything afterwards; you'd already be jailbroken.

    Alright.... So essentially what I want to do is jailbreak my phone as is and then put 4.1 custom firmware in it. This way I'll have the latest Iphone OS that works the best... Is their a guide someone can link me? All I find on this site is how to go to 4.0...

    Correct. What guide are you looking for? How to JB 3.0.1 and how to use Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2?

    The jb for 3.0.1 is pretty simple. Download Redsn0w 0.8 for your system OS. Download the 3.0 stock ipsw. When you open redsn0w, select the 3.0 ipsw and just follow the on-screen instructions.

    To use Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 after your successful jb on 3.0.1, that's pretty simple too. Download a stock 4.1 ipsw. Download Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 from iH8sn0w(dot)com. Open it and select your 4.1 ipsw. Follow the instructions to creating the custom fw. Pretty straightforward stuff.

    When you've created it, note where it is saved so you can access it in iTunes. Open iTunes and shift+restore (option+restore on Mac) to the custom fw you created. Please make sure you're not selecting the stock 4.1 cuz you'll be mad if you do. Make sure make sure make sure it is the custom fw you made.

    iTunes should restore it to 4.1 and you should be JB after it finishes.
