    Default Got jailbroken 3.1.2. Should I upgrade? Pls help.

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and also fairly inexperienced at jailbreaking. I bought an iPhone 3GS off eBay about 8 months ago and performed a jailbreak using blackra1n.

    I've got version 3.1.2 running and I've got baseband 05.11.07. I want to upgrade to the newest iPhone OS 4.01 or 4.02, but I wanted to get some confirmation that there won't be any issues as I have received mixed information so far.

    1) As my phone is already jailbroken using blackra1n, how do I jailbreak it? Should I update using iTunes official OS 4.01 upgrade and then go for a jailbreak with another program (i.e. redsn0w)? From what I understand, blackra1n doesn't jailbreak OS 4.01.

    2) I also rely on a carrier unlock, I read that ultrasn0w just released a carrier unlock for 4.01. Is that correct?

    The main reasons for me wanting to upgrade is just to have the latest OS and also my current jailbreak has some issues, namely YouTube does not work and everytime I power down my phone I have to re-jailbreak. Will either of those issues be fixed with the update? If not, is it still worth the update?

    Thanks for your help guys!

    DO you have original SIM card or some way to activate the iPhone after restore?

    Did you use the Cydia "make my life easier"option to save your SHSH? You can check this by opening Cydia and seeing if it says you have any SHSH on file.

    If you can activate the iPhone after restore, the new jailbreak will fix the problems you have right now. Otherwise you should stay with what you have now.

    I'm in the situation same as guimello. By original sim, does that just mean an AT&T sim card? I used to use my friend's AT&T sim card to activate since I unlocked to t-mobile.
