    You can update to 3.0.1 but at the point when redsn0w asks you to browse for firmware you have to select the 3.0 firmware. I would back up your phone but when it is done set it up as a new phone. The back up is just in case.

    Is it a 3G or a 2G. Basically is the back metal or black/white plastic?

    If it is metal then you can unlock it through redsn0w, just download these bootloaders and check off "Unlock" when you have that option.

    If it is a 3G then you would need to download Ultrasn0w after you jailbreak it:

    Update then jailbreak then unlock. Just be sure to select the 3.0 firmware when redsn0w asks you to browse for the firmware.
