    update it to 4.3.3 then use redsnow 0.9.6rc16 to install cydia.

    i used redsnow on the other phone. i noticed a checkbox for updating baseband
    do i leave this unchecked
    are you saying update it via itunes.
    also redsnow asks for ipsw when it starts, would i have to download one as well

    Stay away from the ipad basebnad checkbox. You dont need it since you said O2 officially unlocked it for you. Just update normally in itunes to 4.3.3. Use redsnow and point it to a 4.3.3 firmware for your device (either use the one itunes downloaded for you or download one yourself).

    Only choose the option to install cydia. You dont need any other options.
