    Default Jailbreaking a factory unlocked Iphone4?

    Hey what's up all?

    I have an Iphone 4 that I purchased overseas. It is a factory unlocked MC605B. I'm currently running 4.0.1 and 01.59.00.

    Is there a jailbreak out for my phone?

    Should I be concerned that jail breaking might affect the factory unlock?

    I'd like to JB it because I want to try out internet tethering. Will this work if I JB it and use pdanet?

    Thanks for your time!

    Sorry, this is in the wrong section. Mods, mind moving it to the jailbreak section?

    You can use jailbreakme.com - it will NOT affect factory unlock.

    However, you really should backup your SHSH - Apple uses the SHSH to force people to update and to stop people downgrading again.

    Right now, only SHSH requests for the latest 4.2.1 and (maybe) 4.1 are still being signed by Apple.

    The reason I emphasise SHSH is that if you install something that stops your iPhone booting (and a tethering patch that is not designed for 4.0.1 could do this)- then you have no choice but to restore to an iOS version that you have a SHSH for.

    Awesome, thanks for the words.

    So how do I back up my SHSH?
