    Default Factory unlocked HK 3gs and IOS 4 question

    HI, i used to be good at this then i got a phone in HK that is factory unlocked, it is on 3.1.3, 5.12.01, model is MC132ZP/

    it is jail broken using blackrain (Not blacksnow).

    Seems a bit confusing, i know i can just upgrade to 4.0 but can i jailbreak and if so which tool? my phone will reactivate just by connecting to itunes as it is a factory unlocked unit.

    thanks for any help.

    3GS with new bootrom cannot be jailbroken on iOS 4.0 yet. Find out what bootrom you have (it's probably the new one), and we can assist further, but ultimately, if you have the old bootrom, you can install Spirit2Pwn and then flash an ipsw that you create with PwnageTool, and that will upgrade you to a jailbroken 4.0.

    Don't attempt this if you don't know your bootrom version. If you try this on a new bootrom phone, you'll brick your phone and have to restore to a factory 4.0 -- thus locking and jailing the phone. Without an SHSH on file, you'd have no way to restore back down to 3.1.2/3.1.3, so you'd be stuck.

    @ n1ckn4m3: Why would restoring a factory iOS 4.0 lock an officially unlocked iPhone?

    Doh. I missed that he mentioned both in his post and in the subject that it was factory unlocked. Pretend I didn't say that. It's not possible to re-lock a factory unlocked phone.

    Thanks! I am planning on getting a commitment-free (factory unlock) iPhone 4 in Canada and it's good to know that it won't re-lock itself after a restore
