    yes you can create a custom ipsw using pwnagetool and just option+restore in iTunes, it will already be jailbroken when u are done

    Not blacksn0w for unlocking. Since he came from 3.0.x, he has 04.26.08 baseband. Ultrasn0w is the way to go

    Hi All,

    Can someone just guide me a little too - I am totally confused the more I read.

    I have a 3Gs which is on 3.0.1 and would now like to upgrade it to 3.1.2 since some applications require 3.1.

    My version of iTunes is telling me that there is an update version for my phone and it is saying 3.1.2 (I have not updated iTunes perhaps that is why).

    So my question is - do I just now update in iTunes and then get blacksn0w and jailbreak? The unlocking is not a necessity but would like to know if I can also unlock.

    Thank you for helping me along.

    not sure why it is saying 3.1.2 instead of 3.1.3 but I would not take the chance...if u have access to a mac create a custom 3.1.2 with pwnagetool and option+restore to that..if not find and download one created with pwnagetool and shift+restore (pc) to it...u must already be jailbroken on your current firmware first to use the custom firmware
