Thread: Jailbreak iPhone 3g 4.1 questions

  1. #1
    Default Jailbreak iPhone 3g 4.1 questions
    Alright I have a few questions about jailbreaking my iphone 3g on ios 4.1:
    -Is there a jailbreak out?
    -If there is one will Apple know I have done it? I have a warranty until December 2011. If I restore will Apple still be able to tell?
    -Would enabling GameCenter be safe?

    Really the warranty is the only thing I'm worried about just let me know please

    Yes, there is a jailbreak for 3g at 4.1 only if you know how to jailbreak safely.
    Apple may or may not know if you have jailbroken your iphone, but a stock firmware restore would be neccessary if you were to visit the apple customers' service.
    Don't really know what you mean if GameCenter is safe or unsafe.

    Oh, I see what you mean, when logging in, i am sure Apple knows that but I don't really know if you bring in for a repair, if having GameCenter is an issue.
    It is really up to you, you can stay unjailbroken until the warranty expires.

    If you use Redsn0w, then you have to update your baseband and you will be locked out.
    If you use Snowbreeze 2.0.2, then you will preserve your baseband at what you already have , so you can unlock with Ultrasn0w again.

    Currently Redsn0w version is only for Mac
    Snowbreeze 2.0.2 is for windows, to use it , you have to be jailbroken by either Redsn0w or Blackra1n , only then you can restore to the custom firmware of 4.1 created by Snowbreeze 2.0.2. Your baseband will be preserved.
    www.iH8sn0w.com is the site.

    Just so you know, I believe a lot of folks are holding off on jailbreaking their phones via the method yeow202 indicated hoping for a more user friendly and safer alternative supposedly coming soon (when 'soon' is no one knows).

    Yes, it is safe, no infinite loop

    Not infinite reboot, if it doesn't work , you can restore back to 4.1.
    The best way is to restore through Pwnage tools 4.1.2.
