    Default 1,2,3,4 jailbreak! [help!]

    I have researched tons of sites about jailbreaking and unlocking, most of the comments by the people said they failed, missing files etc. From Sherif-somthing to youtube videos for almost a week now..
    So now it's difficult what and where to trust, like all, I dont want to make a mistake.. All I want is to unlock, but I obviously need to jailbreak for that.
    I'm using Windows NOT Mac!

    3,4 1/2 QUESTi0NS :p

    1. How can I jailbreak my IPHONE 3GS 4.2.1 / 5.15.04?
    - Recommend a site or anything..

    (( I've learned that I will be using baseband 6.15.00 to be able to unlock ))

    2. After jailbreaking and unlocking, can I go back by re-jailbreak without a problem and continue to purches games from itunes?
    - If so, will everything be deleted, photos, bought games etc.

    3. What is the downside by jailbreaking?? I've heard somthing about tethered jailbreak, and that is what? Positive or negativ?


    Thanks from cold Oslo, Norway

    1. Use redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 from here Dev-Team Blog - Thanksgiving with Apple guide iClarified - iPhone - How to Jailbreak and Unlock Your iPhone 3GS Using RedSn0w (Windows) [4.2.1] (avoid baseband 6.15.00 if you don't need to unlock). Norwegian carriers are generally OK with unlocking iPhones - you should talk to the carrier the phone is locked to before trying baseband 6.15.00
    2. If you apply baseband 6.15.00 you will find it impossible to go back to a totally non jailbroken state. Otherwise, it is not a problem to remove the jailbreak. Purchasing games, apps etc from iTunes is totally unaffected by jailbreak. Removing jailbreak will wipe all content from your phone, including games, photos etc - so sync them to your computer before you try and remove the jailbreak.
    3. You have a 3GS, if you bought it new in the past year or so, then you are limited to a tethered jailbreak. This means that every time you reboot the phone you probably will need to use a computer to kickstart the boot process.

    Two very important things to do before you start.

    Thanks for the help i've kept this a bit on the low cause i'm waiting for a "good" unlock system, but i've read something about the unlocking at Dev-Team Blog seems like they've found a good solution? Im not really sure because it was a little too complicated for me, could u comment something about it? If i can unlock it now, could u also but it down on me? Little easier... Thanks for all

    Yes you can unlock (by using the iPad baseband), but it's not a great idea. It might break GPS on your phone.

    Now that greenpois0n and Pwnagetool 4.2 are out, you are no longer limited to a tethered jailbreak.

    Hey again, still searching and waiting for a safe unlock. I've found this link How to Preserve Baseband, Jailbreak, Unlock iPhone 4, 3GS, 3G on 4.2.1 Using PwnageTool 4.2 / Sn0wbreeze 2.2 [Video] | Redmond Pie can this one work?

    I gave you the answers you needed. As of today, there is no "safer unlock" than the iPad unlock for your combination of baseband and phone.

    The guide you linked to is primarily focused on sn0wbreeze, which we refuse to recommend or support here. Our experience is that you will have better luck/success with pwnagetool.

    I downloaded the 4.2.1 (4): iPhone3,1_4.2.1_8C148_Restore.ipsw

    and after I opened redsnow they asked me for the ipsw, I have already downloaded and and put it in the same folder as they asked me to make.. How can I find th ipsw now??? hmmm

    all i got from that file was a zip file which contains:
    Firmware
    038-0019-002.dmg
    038-0024-002.dmg
    038-0032-002.dmg
    BuildManifest *
    kernelcashe.release.k48
    kernelcashe.release.n81
    kernelcashe.release.n90
    Restore *

    Sorry for all the questioning, but ive tried the redsnow 6 times and everytime I try i stops at exploiting with limera1n. The loading bar is full, just waiting for the "finish" button to press and nothing happens... :S

    Another thing,,, The link u sent http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=12945 is how to jailbreak 3gs, but in the article it say "These are instructions on how to jailbreak your iPhone 4 on the 4.2.1 firmware using RedSn0w for Mac. "
    When I tried to jailbreak with the redsnow one of the first messages that came was something about iphone 4 in the loading bar.. So, maybe its for that it doesnt work? Because its maybe ment for 4? Or is it the same?

    Laaaast question, i will soon buy a new computer, will all the jailbreaking and safed aps and all be earsed? Can it be "moved" to the new computer with itunes?

    Okay... I still say that if the phone was purchased from a Norwegian telephone carrier, then you should ring them and ask for an unlock.

    If the phone came from another country (for example USA), then you need to use ultrasn0w.

    If you have not yet managed to update your baseband to the iPad version. Then you should wait.. An ultrasn0w update that will unlock 5.15.04 will probably be released soon (a few weeks)

    If you want to ignore all my good advice and use the iPad baseband, I can't stop you -

    The iClarified guide is wrong, thanks for pointing this out. It links to an iPhone 4 IPSW for 4.2.1 - which is useless for you.

    You need iPhone2,1_4.2.1_8C148a_Restore.ipsw which can be downloaded from http://www.hackint0sh.org/f127/22056.htm

    Redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 works on all iOS devices so you don't need to download it again.

    I recommend you use a combination of greenpois0n rc6.1 (to jailbreak untethered) and then redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 (to hacktivate and update to the iPad baseband)
    Finally install ultrasn0w from cydia to unlock.

    There are existing threads that explain the steps required to transfer your iTunes (and apps/music) to another computer. I won't take this thread off-topic by answering that question here.
