    Default Assistance upgrading unlocked & jailbroken 3G under 3.0 to 4.1

    Hi guys, my apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place. I haven't found a step-by-step guide for upgrading and this is important since I don't want to mess it up.

    I have an iphone 3G 16GB factory-unlocked and later jailbroken via Windows. My present ios is 3.0 and would like to upgrade to the latest 4.1 and then unlock and jailbreak again. I have firmware 04.26.08.

    Is this upgrade advisable or should I avoid it just in case? The only thing I'm sure about is to avoid upgrading via iTunes. I had version 10 downloaded to my PC.

    I posted here about 2 years ago and user Olethros helped me out bigtime upgrading to 3.0 by that time (ref: http://www.hackint0sh.org/f207/112237.htm).

    Thanx a lot in advance and cheers to you all!

    Wait... 4.1 is not ready yet - the only official jailbreak released up till now (redsn0w 0.9.6 beta) will destroy your chance of an unlock. Don't try sn0wbreeze - it will keep your unlock, but the jailbreak is incomplete and some Cydia apps won't work.

    When pwnagetool is released with official 4.1 support, use that.

    Good for you, there are apps out there which don't work or are buggy with sn0wbreeze - which is one of the many reasons why we don't support or recommend it here.
