    Default Jailbreaking iPhone 3GS for the first time

    Hi guys, I've just bought a new 3GS. The serial indicates that it was made week 49 of 2009, so it should be 3.1.2 right? Do I need to activate the phone with the stock sim card first or can I put my contracted sim with t-mobile in the phone then jailbreak using redsn0w? Thanks!

    Redsn0w 0.9.2 or blackra1n will work (recommend you use redsn0w for initial jailbreak and blackra1n for kickstarting the tethered jailbreak on each reboot)

    Just for your information. You have new bootrom and no SHSH saved for 3.1.2 - this means you play Russian roulette with jailbreaking. If anything goes wrong that requires a restore, your only choice is to restore to 3.1.3 and that will kill your jailbreak.
    Please read the stickies & search forum before posting!
