    If it is still on 3.1.3, it is most likely unlockable. Why not just download ultrasn0w and find out?

    You're stealing my thunder. Adding on to my word "jailbreakable" :P

    Edit: if jailbreakable wasn't my word guys, could we pretend it is? Lol

    Ultrasn0w is in cydia.. You should be able to just search it.. If not youll have to ad repo to your cydia which is repo666.ultrasn0w.com

  12. #12
    ok ill followed you by going to cydia. what do you mean ad repo ?

  13. #13
    Go to manage at the bottom of cydia.. Then sources the click edit in the upper right corner then hit add then put that url in then hit add source

    Tutorial

    http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=1682

    This works for all sources so ignore the iclarified part.. Just substitute the source url with the one i gave you

    ultrasn0w comes packaged with Cydia, open Cydia after jailbreak, hit search on the bottom, type ultrasn0w, Install and reboot.

    ok thanks. i just did jail break with spirit. now what do i do?

    cydia also is saying there are 2 essential upgrades and if i dont errors could occur. do i upgrade essential? complete upgrade? ignore?

    Yes, Upgrade as User not dev or what ever the other options are, the top option. The phone will re-boot, open Cydia again then search for ultrasn0w.
