    Depends on what firmware and carrier youre on. It would help greatly if you specified.

    FW 3.1.2 can be jailbroken by Spirit or Blackra1n. Spirit requires activated phone meaning if the phone is a US version you will need an AT&T SIM to bypass activation.

    Spirit works on 3.1.3 and provides untethered jailbreaks for 3GS phones.

    3GS phones with the new bootrom will want to use Spirit. Old bootrom phones can use Blackra1n if on 3.1.2 for an untethered jailbreak as they are not affected by the tethered issue.

    Blackra1n will not work on any device on 3.1.3.

    Waiting till 4.0 to jailbreak is not necessary as you can easily do so now. But you can if you want.

    I am on att. I am not sure of the firmware but it is a 3G and i got it last july. I can jailbreak 4.0 now? I thought you have to wait until the ios software is available or is it already?

    I think what Annie meant was that there's no reason to wait with jailbreaking since you asked about waiting or doing it now.

    Righto whatever firmware you are on right now you can jailbreak it. 4.0 is in beta best not to mess with it if youre a noob.

    PS you shouldnt be jailbreaking if you dont know what firmware you are on. Figure out what firmware youre on, then try something like jailbreaking.

    If you dont know where to look i would suggest checking your settings and about section...

    Then use Spirit

    Spirit for 3GS allows for untethered JB. Thats just a note. Spirit will work on any device.

    Why don't you use Redsn0w 0.9.4 to jailbreak your 3G 3.1.3 so that you can use Custom Firmware for future updates, follow this link to do the jailbreak
