Running 3.0 on 3Gs and need help with tethering/jailbreaking
I’m still running 3.0 on my 16gb 3GS simply because I like the tethering feature that was available by downloading a “profile” about 10 months ago. I'm not savvy at jailbreaking concept but went into into an AT&T store today and even the guy behind the counter said he would do it (update the phone to the latest OS and then jailbreak the phone). I really just want to upgrade to the 4OS and download MyWi, which is probably the only "unauthorized" app I would get outside of the "AppStore".
-How do I go about doing this?
-Does the fact that I downloaded that profile from way back when matter?
-Should I restore my phone to factory settings (if so how do I do that)?
-If I do that I'm assuming ALL my apps will be gone, do I have to download them all again?
-What if I paid for some do I get them back or do I have to pay for them?
-Do you recommend I download the latest 4OS now and just wait for jailbreaking instructions once they come out for the 4OS?

Downloading that profile from way back likely does NOT matter. (i'm not entirely sure what you mean by this but if it is a mobileconfig profile to enable tethering, that stopped working at OS 3.1)
However - it's not straightforward (yet) on the 3GS to jailbreak. There is no official release (yet) from the devteam
The last I heard was that MyWi did not yet work properly on iOS 4.0 - only PADNet works. If tethering is critical to you - wait.
In general my advice is to download the iOS4 now and then wait.
Right now jailbreaking iOS 4 on a 3GS is not for the non technical. Also the jailbroken apps (especially those that tweak the system heavily) still need updating before everything works as well as it did on OS 3.x
