    Post Whats the best jailbreak & unlock method for iOS 3.2.1?

    There's so many jailbreaks and unlock method i'm not even sure which one is up to date that works and is reliable for iPhone 3G iOS 3.1.2. Can anyone guide me what the best method for this jailbreak & unlock version. Before I was using blackrain & blacksn0w.

    Jailbreak: redsn0w if you're running 3.2.1 already, PwnageTool if you want to do a clean restore of the jailbroken iOS.
    Unlock: ultrasn0w from cydia, add repo666.ultrasn0w.com as a source in Cydia and download and install ultrasn0w.

    What version radio baseband do you have? Have you been using PwnageTool to do your upgrades? Want to make sure we recommend the right unlock for your baseband.

    It was recently upgraded to 4.2.1 with baseband 05:11:07. Some of the apps I been using don't support the new version so now I want to downgrade back to 3.1.2. Not sure what's the appropriate steps to do so and the jailbreak & unlock method. If I downgrade back 3.1.2 there's no way my baseband will be higher right? Like if anything goes wrong.

    Just make sure you shift-restore and point it to the 3.1.2 .IPSW -- if you don't, it may automatically start trying to update you to iOS 4.3 or 4.3.1. Since iOS 3.1.2 comes with baseband 05.11.07, restoring to it will not impact your baseband. If you're worried at all though, go ahead and run the .IPSW through PwnageTool first anyway to jailbreak -- that will guarantee there are no baseband surprises in store for you.

    I'm having 2nd thoughts. I want to try to downgrade to 4.1 first and try it out see if the apps I use actually still works on that firmware but I want to retain my baseband so I can still unlock while downgrading. How would I downgrade to 4.1 while keeping my baseband. I don't want to resort to iPad baseband. For downgrading do I do need to be in DFU and do it from Tiny Umbrella start TSS server? then shift restore in iTune point it to the apple 4.1 firmware? Any necessary step by step would be helpful.

    Btw, I don't have access to a Mac or have one. I only have Windows. I just download custom ipsw online lol.

    I don't recommend you download custom IPSW from un-trusted sources.

    Virtualising OS X via the free virtual box from Oracle isn't too hard, then you can run pwnagetool and make your own custom IPSW

    You need to be in pwned dfu mode to load custom 4.1 and 4.2.1 IPSW, you also should have a saved 4.1 SHSH available (but it's not 100% required for the iphone 3G)

    Don't use original IPSW if you want to prevent baseband upgrade

    Yeah I know it's very risky downloading custom ipsw online lol but I try it. For virtualising OS X do I need to have the Mac Operating system software to install into the virtual box? Like VM ware? I don't have a Mac OS X software

    You can buy OS X 10.6 very cheap - technically the cheap version is for upgrades from 10.5 only but it will work as a new install

    Downloading custom IPSW is not only risky (contents might not be what they claim to be) it is also technically illegal/warez

    Oh okay thank you. Btw, which jailbreak method you recommend Spirit or redsnow if going to 3.1.3 firmware. Not sure how the speed is if I downgrade to 4.1.

    I recommend redsn0w, spirit limits what version of iTunes you can use.
