Please guide me through this.
    Also, the guy who was earlier using this phone has not removed any his data. I also want to restore this phone to factory default before jailbreaking or unlocking (if possible).
    I didnt try any of the methods for restoring, jailbreakng or unlocking because i dont my phone to get stuck up or crash. Please hellp me.......... I am dying to use this phone...

    Details of my iphone is given below:

    Version: 4.0.1 (8A306)
    Model:MC136LL
    Modem Firmware: 05.13.04

    Good news is that it can be jailbroken and unlocked.
    Have you checked if there are any saved SHSH for this iPhone? You cna do this with TinyUmbrella (advanced mode) The Firmware Umbrella

    Do NOT use the "erase all content and settings" option on the iPhone.

    Remove previous settings (safe way)

    First of all, thanks "olethros" for the gud news that u gave me.
    I have been going through the links (iClarified) that u gave, and i am ready to jalbreak and unlock. Before that, i had some more questions as i went through the links.

    1) As i told before, i need to restore my iphone to factory default settings. I am a bit confused after reading a post in this forum. So, just wanted to ask whether the below method will work:

    a) Connecting iphone to my laptop and opening itunes and clicking on "Restore"
    b) Activating the iphone using the "Phonebook Card"
    c) Setting up my iphone as a new phone (i am doing this because i dont want the old users data)

    (i)But if i do "a)" which Os will it install? Will i be able to jailbreak/unlock it using jailbreakme?
    (ii)Will my iphone get activated using "Dits Phonebook card"?


    If this phone gets activated by the above method, i hope that i can jailbreak it using jailbreakme and unlock it using ultrasnow.

    Please clarify my questions....

    Do NOT restore your iPhone. You will lose the ability to unlock (maybe for ever). Do NOT choose "erase all content and settings"

    Your first step is to use TinyUmbrella as I mentioned before.
    The steps I have outlined in my earlier post will work.
    The guides you are reading have not been updated to reflect the fact that Apple no longer signs ANY iOS 4.0.x version for restores. Their advice is no longer current. It is no longer advisable to restore your iPhone as the only version you can restore to (without cached SHSH) is 4.1 that cannot be jailbroken or unlocked.

    Also you take a HUGE risk trying to jailbreak a 3GS (or iPhone 4) without first confirming if you have a SHSH saved with Cydia.

    Read Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) for an explanation of SHSH. I recommend you delay trying to jailbreak until you fully understand how important SHSH is to staying unlocked and jailbroken.

    I tried TinyUmbrella to check for any saved SHSH for this iPhone.
    1)When i opened TinyUmbrella it showed

    09/15/2010 00:04:24.134 The Firmware Umbrella - v4.1.4 by semaphore 09/15/2010 00:04:24.139 For help click here
    09/15/2010 00:04:24.142 Connect a device to continue...
    09/15/2010 00:04:24.423 Caching shsh files...
    09/15/2010 00:04:24.443 Found [0] shsh files to cache...
    09/15/2010 00:04:24.463 Cached [0] shsh files

    2)Then i connected my iPhone, i saved SHSH for (4.1)

    09/15/2010 00:07:35.298 Asking CYDIA for SHSH blobs for iPhone3GS 4.1 (8B117)...
    09/15/2010 00:09:04.227 SHSH SUCCESSFULLY saved!

    3)Then i went to "Advanced Options" and selected 'iPhone 3gs 4.0.1 (8A306)"

    09/15/2010 00:21:58.687 Asking CYDIA for SHSH blobs for iPhone3GS 4.0.1 (8A306)...
    09/15/2010 00:22:59.781 This device isn't eligible for the requested build. 09/15/2010 00:22:59.811 CYDIA DOES NOT HAVE YOUR SHSH FOR iPhone3GS 4.0.1 (8A306) THERE IS NO WAY FOR YOU TO GET THEM. SORRY. YOU ARE JUST TOO LATE.


    SO, i dont have any saved SHSH for iPhone 3gs 4.0.1 (8A306).

    You can still jailbreak but there is a risk that if something goes wrong (during the jailbreak or afterwards) your only choice is to restore to 4.1 and lose jailbreak/unlock (realistically I don't expect another unlock until next July at the earliest)

    You can activate with most of these "phonebook" cards, however you need to install the lockdown patch fronm cydia.pushfix.info afterwards. Otherwise your activation will be lost when you switch to your normal SIM card.
