Noob with new phone and basic question
I have previously jailbroken iphone 2Gs, using pwnage, so am basically familiar with the procedure.
However, I just bought a new 3gs -- still in its box -- with a plan from a cell company. If I want the phone to be jailbroken, couls someone please tell me what are the steps I should follow?
I was assuming:
1. Get the latest version of itunes for my Mac.
2. Hookup and charge phone; register it and open itunes account.
3. Major Question: Should I accept any prompts from itunes to update the phone's software?
4. Follow regular pwnage procedure to jailbreak the phone, via a custom 3.1.2 firmware
As a more general question, assuming I update both the firmware and baseband, both to Apple's latest versions through itunes, can I still jailbreak the phone through pwnage 3.14?
Thanks for reading.
another set of quick questions ...
Thanks Olethros for all your help.
Unfortunately, I had to travel overseas, forgot my iphone at home (still in its box) and won't be back until Feb / March :(
So what I did as soon as I got to my hotel was downloaded Pwnage 3.1.4, the current custom firmware (3.1.2) and firmware umbrella 2.1.7, so that I can be sure I can jailbreak my phone as soon as I get back, regardless of what the latest firmware version is. Anything else I need?
Question number 2 (I just want to understand how this works): Suppose I had my iphone with me now, and were to do the jailbreak process right now. From the week of manufacture, it would seem I have the "old" iboot, so probably I also have FW ver 3.1 (not 3.1.2). If I understand correctly, there would be no risk in letting itunes upgrade the software on the phone, since this particular upgrade (from 3.1 to 3.1.2) would not entail changing either the basenband or iboot; however the same can't be said of other upgrades -- is that why you recommend been careful about upgrades requested by itunes?
