    Hi, i'm not that new to jailbreaking (since the 1.0 days), but i do not know what to do.

    I have an iPhone 3gs with old bootloader on 3.1.2 jailbroken by blacksnow and soft-unlocked.

    I need to update some how to a version of 4.0 and be unlocked. Is there anything i can do? Or do i have to wait for the 4.0.1 jailbreak to come out and update.

    I am on both as i dual boot. I need this to be un-tethered. I ask as i recently saw a chart on some blog (maybe on modmyi) that said i could but did not elaborate.

    A phone with the old bootrom will be un tethered. Use pwnagetool (Mac) to create a custom 4.0 then restore to that.

    It will still work, because your upgrading to iOS4, tho I think you can go to a custom 4.0.1 now

    When you install a custom fw it bypasses the apple verification.

    Ok thanks. Just a few more questons:

    Do i need to clear before jailbreaking; like deleting apps or using the reset in settings?

    What software do i need to unlock (also will i need to do anything special to keep my baseband)

    I don't see why you would have to clear it, cause when you install iOS4 it will do that anyway, and use ultrasn0w for unlocking

    If you use categories remember to take all of your icons out of their folders. If you have poofed any icons unpoof them. If you have a custom carrier logo change it back to normal. Other than that backup your texts, saved games, photos, etc as you will want to set up your phone as new.

    Ultrasn0w will unlock once you get it restored to the custom fw. Installing a custom fw from pwnage tool doesn't update the baseband, but even if something happened and your bb did get updated the current one is still unlockable.

    Yes, if you don't unhide them they'll still be hidden after the restore. It can be mildly panic inducing to try and figure out why the apps won't show up...lol
