    I studied many threads so if I'm asking a stupid or already posted answer...appologies, but I could really use some specific guidance 9so I don't toast a new phone).

    My new 3g is running stock iOS4.0.1 (8A306) firmware. It is new from the Apple store and has not been upgraded.

    I am attempting to jailbreak/unlock this phone. Can I do this? Pwnage and RedSnOw seem to only work with the 4.0 (8A293) OS.

    1. Can /(how can) I jaibreak 4.0.1?
    2. If I can't do (1), then can /(how can)I go from stock 4.0.1 to a jaibreak/unlock 4.0?

    [I've done 2g hacks before, but this is my 1st 3g try, so I'd appreciate anyone's help]

    Redsn0w is your best bet, it simply extracts some files from the FW to allow it to JB, so you can use iOS4 FW to JB 4.0.1. Simply point red 0.9.5-b5 to iOS4.0 FW, it will then JB your 4.0.1 device. Once done, simply load up cydia and install Ultrasn0w 0.93 to unlock

    Success!!!! the modd worked perfectly. redsn0w, left the multitask and walpapers unchecked. load went quickly; rebooted and switched to my tmobile sim; turned off 3G; installed ultrasn0w; rebooted and everything works.

    Thanks cadsii and will01 for your guidance

    are you selecting the 4.0 firmware using redsn0w ?
    even though you are on 4.0.1 you have to select 4.0 in redsn0w

    The links cadsii posted are what I used successfully along w Itunes 9.2.1 I would try and re download the 4.0 ipsw and/or redsnow again. Perhaps something is corrupted
