    Default Help needed for jailbreak and unlock of 3GS

    Okay, this request must be pretty tiring but I desperately need help. I am pretty new to iphone. I got mine from a frnd in US just a week back and noticed that the phone runs on iOS 3.0.1.

    I am so confused about the unlocking and jailbreaking - as there are many tools available - I am not sure which one will work for my requirements.

    Coming on to my problem. As I said I am new to iphone and my phone runs on 3.0.1. Can you wonderful guys please help me out with what needs to be done to jailbreak, unlock and upgrade to iOS 4.X.

    Please not that I do not have AT&T sim to activate my moble and I am using an unlocked one. Also, I will need help in identifying the bootrom version and the shsh file as I got the phone from a frnd and have no clue about them.

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Default Need to upgrade my 3GS. A tad confused.

    I would like to upgrade my firmware to at least 4.1 or higher without upgrading the baseband. I am an AT&T customer so if I can't preserve baseband I'll deal with it. Just looking for a jailbreak. Need clarification on how to do it. Mac or windows. Short version of the answer will do thx!

    I have a 3GS with the "new bootrom" running on 4.0.1 jailbroken with jailbreakme. My modem firmware is 05.13.04. Lowest SHSH's i have is 3.1.3.*

    You'll also need to modify your hosts file to either use Saurik's server or TinyUmbrella's TSS server (because you absolutely need a 4.1 SHSH for this process)

    Don't bother with 4.2.1 at this point - it's limited to tethered jailbreak for your new bootrom 3GS unless you have a 4.2b3 SHSH and are a registered iOS developer.

    TinyUmbrella can determine what SHSH you have saved. The Firmware Umbrella - TinyUmbrella
    Bootrom - The iPhone Wiki explains how to check bootrom (99% chance you have old bootrom - which is good)

    If you have a 4.1 SHSH, you can use iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak Your iPhone 3GS Using PwnageTool (Mac) [4.1] to go to 4.1 without updating your baseband and then unlock with iClarified - iPhone - How to Unlock the iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G Using UltraSn0w

    There is no windows solution that can preserve your baseband. (at least none that is reliable) so we only recommend/support Pwnagetool (mac OS X only) here.
