    Default Jailbreaking & Unlocking

    Hi can someone help me?
    I have a 3GS which was given to me as a gift. It was the first of the 3GS batches that came out. But I misplaced the phone and found it recently. I wanted to know if it is possible to still jailbreak & unlock?. I do not want to use blackrain. Can I use redsnow or snowbreeze?
    Phone info:
    FW: 3.0(7A341)
    Model: MC137LL
    BB: 4.26.08
    Now, I do not want to lose my baseband because I want to have my phone unlocked. Can I still get the ECID although my 3GS is not jailbroken? I just need some guidance on what to do.

    You can jailbreak that iphone by using redsn0w 0.9.2.
    Once jailbroken, the device is pwned (LLB is pwned).

    From this point on, DO NOT and NEVER restore the phone using apple stock firmware.

    Once jailbroken, your phone still has firmware 3.0.
    If you need to update the firmware to 3.1.2, you would have to use pwnagetool to create CUSTOM firmware to restore to your phone. CUSTOM firmware will not update the baseband.

    Lastly, please stay away from the sn0wbreeze stuff. Not supported here.

    Thank You so much for your help. It was driving me crazy, I didn't know what to do. Should I save my ECID? Will I need it later on. Or is it to late?
    One more thing, what version of itunes can I use.

    You are too late to save your SHSH for anything lower than OS 3.1.3

    The ECID never changes and can always be retrieved via DFU mode.

    Any version of iTunes from 8.2 or higher can be used, always use caution when updating to the newly released versions of iTunes though - wait for confirmation about this from the iPhone dev team (on twitter) before updating.

    Pwnagetool 3.1.5 supports both OS 3.1.2 and OS 3.1.3 (which OS you choose is up to you) we generally don't recommend OS 3.1.3 because it has no extra features - some app store apps require OS 3.1.3 but there is a package in Cydia which tricks the phone into thinking it is actually running 3.1.3 (even though it runs 3.1.2)

    See http://www.hackint0sh.org/f206/125422.htm#post526797 as with most questions, there is already an answer somewhere in these forums. Use search.
