will blackra1n work for my 3G 8GB?
I have an iphone 3G 8GB which I managed to jailbreak with a custom .ipsw (but not unlock). Right now I'm on OS 3.1 with baseband 05.11.07 and able to use the ipod function without the phone (I have tmobile). I want to try blackra1n v3 and blacksn0w when it comes out but I'm not sure how exactly to do it. I do not want to be stuck with nothing. When I first restored to 3.1 from 3.0 the phone was stuck at the "plug" screen and said I had no carrier, so I could do nothing. I don't want that to happen again. I have heard that you first must upgrade to 3.1.2 (have downloaded the update) but if I do that and get stuck at the plug screen how will I run blackra1n? Or do I just run the blackra1n.exe and it will get me past the "plug" screen? I have read the tutorials and it is still not clear. I have read that it will not "hacktivate" which I guess means unlock. That is why I'm looking forward to blacksn0w.
