    Default Iphone 3gs with IOS 4 jailbreakable?? specs inside

    hey guys, i bought an iphone 3gs today and i was very excited. Ive been looking all day but im not sure if its jailbreakable (i dont need an unlock). its an Iphone 3gs 32gb running OS 4 here is the rest of the information on it.

    Model: Mc137LL
    serial number: ***27******
    Modem Firmware: 05.13.04
    Bootloader 6.4
    F0recast said it was not unlockable, and it wouldnt be tethered.

    Is there a jailbreak out there for it???

    Thx in advance.

    I am not 100% sure, just guessing, but as you bought it with 4.0 installed straight out of the box, im assuming you have the new bootloader and that your phone is not Jailbreakable (unless you bought it second-hand and it originally had 3.1.2/3.1.3 and was upgraded by previous owner).
    Did you buy it brand new? Or used?

    Also, how did you find out what Bootloader version it has?

    nope, i actually did buy it second hand and it was bought around a year ago the guy told me. I found out the Bootloader version from a program called F0rcast.

    In order to do this, you'd need an old bootrom 3Gs with an SHSH on file for either 3.1.2 or 3.1.3, depending on whether you have an AT&T SIM card.

    New bootrom devices cannot be jailbroken on iOS 4.0 right now, period.

    You can use Firmware Umbrella to check whether your device has any SHSH files on saurik's server, do a search on the forums for 'Firmware Umbrella' and you'll find many topics on this.

    If your device has a 3.1.2 SHSH on file:

    1) Use TinyTSS or saurik's caching server to downgrade to 3.1.2
    2) Use redsn0w to jailbreak + pwn the LLB
    3) Use the latest PwnageTool to create the custom firmware
    4) Shift-restore and point to the custom .ipsw you created in step 3
    5) The phone should be running iOS 4.0, jailbroken.

    If your device has a 3.1.3 SHSH on file *AND* you have an AT&T SIM:

    1) Use TinyTSS or saurik's caching server to downgrade to 3.1.3
    2) Insert a legit AT&T SIM and activate the phone through iTunes *REQUIRED*
    3) Use Spirit to jailbreak the device.
    4) Follow the instructions here to pwn the LLB: Mostly iPhone hacking: OLD BOOTROM + Spirit => 4.0 JB
    5) Use the latest PwnageTool to create the custom firmware
    6) Shift-restore and point to the custom .ipsw you created in step 5
    7) The phone should be running iOS 4.0, jailbroken.

    Please read the forums, this is the single most common question around.

    If you are RUNNING iOS 4.0 and you do not have a 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 SHSH on file, and you are using a 3GS -- you cannot jailbreak. Sorry! No way around it. It does not matter what bootrom version you have, etc. If you are running iOS 4.0 on a 3GS and do not have a 3.1.2 or 3.1.3 SHSH, you cannot jailbreak. Period!

    EDIT: Looks like they stopped signing 4.0 ...

    See this tweet Twitter / planetbeing: People are working their a ... for an explanation. This stuff is not easy and taking it from a manual process (that may not always work) to a one-click jailbreak requires a lot of work.

    A spirit-like userland JB is coming for 4.0. Soon - be patient (and glad you backed up 4.0 SHSH)

    If we knew, we would say. After yellowsn0w missing it's new years release date a year and half ago - no one does release dates anymore. It just creates unrealistic expectations and rushed buggy releases.

    It is in active development and the release is expected very soon. Maybe days - maybe a week or two. Depends on if any last minute problems appear.
