iPhone 3g jailbroken with 3.0.1

I have a 16g Iphone 3G with 3.0.1 software.

I have been searching to what update can I run on my phone since it is already jailbroken. I tried Spirit but it said it was not available for 3.0.1

I would like to be able to unlock my cell if needed & also be able to tether...

any suggestions?

thanks.

Do you currently have at&t? If so you can upgrade to 4.0.1 (latest apple firmware) and jailbreak by just going to jailbreakme.com on your iphone. To unlock just go to Cydia and install ultrasn0w.

If you have t-mobile you can do all this but you will need to borrow someone's at&t sim for a little while just so you can go to jailbreakme.com and install the unlock, after that you can put the t-mobile sim back in.

To tether you can install MyWi from Cydia (costs money) or use PDAnet.

I have at&t currently, but may switch to tmobile later not sure...contract end in about 3 weeks.

Do I update to 4.0.1 on itunes first and then go to jailbreakme.com or do I just go there & it does everything for me?

Cool,

I didn't want to do that update because I had heard it can lock the phone.

NO! Don't upgrade to 4.1* if you have a 3g!!

go here,

http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/

BACKUP YOUR PHONE, And download 3.1.3 for the 3g. and do a SHIFT RESTORE on iTunes.

Download

redsn0w-win_0.9.4

and run it. It tells you what to do.

any specific reason you say not to do that?
will your method work? i thought itunes wont let you restore an old firmware version since they stop signing it.
unless your SHSH is backed up with cydia, you would have to upgrade to the newest firmware.


4.1 isnt out yet. current version is 4.0.1
jailbreakme.com says it supports up to 4.0.1 on all devices.
ultrasnow unlocks current basebands.

Don't upgrade to the 4.0.1 firmware on a 3g, it will make your phone really slow.

Hrm, my SHSH is backed up on cydia, but I've taken 2 iPhones down from 3.0 to 3.1.3. and did a redsn02 JB. iOS4 runs like SHIT on the 3g iPhone. Even Apple finally admitted to it. I'll find a link

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!


I have been having issues the past few days trying to do the damn upgrade to 4.0.1 & my itunes would get stuck on backup for HOURS!!

Appereantly today after trying a few times, it finally worked.

I updated everything & then now I realize it upgraded to 4.0.2; which no JAILBREAKME.COM says that I can't get it jailbroken anymore because I have a version too new...? wtf, are you serious, the day it actually works they pass an update! Grrrrrrrrrrrr...... I'm pissed.


Is there anything I can do guys? I did a backup, which the file is saved on my pc, but I don't know if it saves the SHSH like people are mentioning.

T-mob speed sucks, even there 3g. and with a iphone you will be stuck on even slower edge.
