    It depends on if you need to unlock or not and if you have SHSHs saved if you do need to unlock. Check SHSHs with TinyUmbrella first, then come back and report what you found.

    Ok, well as a word of warning, I want you to know on an iPhone 3G it will not run as well as it does on 3.1.x. On 4.1 or 4.2.1, it will demonstrate some sort of lag or slowdown compared to 3.1.x. With that being said, I can give you a list of steps to take to upgrade.

    You're going to need to download a few things.

    -Sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 (Windows)
    Or
    -PwnageTool 4.1.2 (Mac)

    -Stock 4.1 ipsw (felixbruns.de or downloads section here on MMi)
    -TinyUmbrella
    -Redsn0w 0.9.6b6

    When you have those things ready...

    1) create a custom 4.1 firmware with either of the tools listed. Use expert mode.

    2) in expert mode, if you don't have an official SIM select "activate". Do not select the iPad baseband upgrade if that's applicable.

    3) build the firmware

    4) when finished, open TinyUmbrella

    5) run TSS server

    6) if you jailbroke with redsn0w, blackra1n, pwnagetool, or sn0wbreeze on 3.1.3, skip this step. If you did not, read this step. if you have PwnageTool, you should follow the timer provided after creating the custom fw to put device into owned DFU. If you are using sn0wbreeze, use Redsn0w to set into pwned DFU mode only.

    7) shift (option for Mac)+restore to the custom 4.1 ipsw

    8) after the restore completes, if you chose "activate" you can access your springboard now. If you did not select "activate", you can now insert the official SIM and open iTunes to activate.

    9) now go to Cydia and unlock with Ultrasn0w.

    10) if you hacktivated, you'll want to do this to fix various issues. Install the repo "repo.bingner.com" and install "SAM" and "SAMprefs".

    11) follow this guide to complete the process: Guide: Unlock your iPhone 3G/3GS with SAM to fix push notifications and battery drainage | JailbreakGuides

    Then you should be set to go.

    Edit: when creating a custom firmware, I strongly suggest you do not select "wallpaper" and "multitasking" as that will drastically slow your device down. Your phone will be much quicker without those two things.

    x98car, am I better off to wait for a untethered JB for iPhone 3GS new bootrom running V3.1.3 unlocked or would it really hurt to use a tethered JB for V4.?? right now?
    I guess what I am trying to say is if I do the tethered now, will it be more detrimental and make it harder to re-JB when an untetheered comes out?
    All I have is shshs for 3.1.3 and V4.2.1b+ ? on cydia

    I have access to PC and Mac.
    Could I do a custom ispw?
    Please consider the environment prior to printing

    Tethered isnt that bad IMO. I was on 4.2.1 tethered fo awhile and it didnt affect me much at all. It's up to you though. It wont affect anything regarding jailbreaking again once a untethered jailbreak comes out.

    Yeah, the only diff is if you wait, you can just dive right into the jb immediately when releases. If you jb now you'll have to restore and jailbreak again with the new jb.

    I heard rumours beginning of the month that the comex untether may just be something you can install in cydia to untether. just rumours though so that may not be accurate. Like Annie said, I would assume you will have to restore and rejailbreak once the untethered one comes out.

    Hm that would be very interesting though. I have held off on upgrading to 4.2.1 even though I really want the find my iPhone feature. I'm waiting for untethered, I'm stingy like that. Dont like the fact that if my phone reboots and I'm stranded in a desert I would be so dead.

    I dont like betas.

    @iwannamod

    4.1/4.2.1 works fine on a 3G, it will not experience much lag or freeze if multitasking and wallpaper are disabled. However, 3.1.x is still the most optimized version for iPhone 3G. Hence, it was a word of warning, that's all.

    Also iPhone 3G is never tethered

    And dms turbo is on a 3GS. New boot is tethered.

    I used it and it works fine, they have ironed all the bugs out now, but I see where you are coming from though.
