    Limera1n is the only option for you unless you want to go the 4.1 route. You'll have to have SHSHs to use a custom fw to 4.1. You can go to 4.2.1 with custom fw without SHSHs right now. This all has to be done with PwnageTool.

    - I have an iphone 3gs running old boot 4.0.2.
    - Never JB before.
    - I am looking to JB and unlock my phone.

    As per the guide, I am thinking of the following:
    1 - Jailbreak with limera1n (shd i use the latest version on the website??)
    2 - unlock by installing ultrasn0w in Cydia.

    Will it work ? if not any other suggestions as I need the unlock functionality.

    Hi All- Total noobie and confused as to what i need to do. downloaded and read the pdf's but im just not familiar with some of the terms. I have a 3GS version 4.1 and the Modem firmware is 05.14.02

    What i am trying to do is jailbreak my phone so i can use CYDIA

    Also, i may want to unlock the phone and take it to T-MOBILE

    What's the best way to do the jailbreak first and then the unlock down the road or do i need to do it all at once. Sorry if these are repeated questions. Thanks for any help

    You can't unlock that modem firmware unless you want to take it up to the iPad baseband of 6.15.00. Possible GPS loss and definite void of warranty if you do so.

    You can jailbreak 4.1 with Redsn0w, Limera1n, or Greenpois0n.

    Thanks x98car! I managed to jailbreak and install the ultasn0w patch but when i put a different SIM i get "Different Sim Detected" message. Any suggestions or pointers on how to move forward.

    I use Limera1n. But it's all basically personal preference. Redsn0w just requires you to have the stock fw to point at but the other two don't.

    They all do a good job, I just like Limera1n. Some may disagree, but it's really just user preference.

    Does it kick back to the emergency screen when that happens? Did you use a phonebook sim to activate by any chance?

    Yes the only option that it presents is "Different Sim Detected" with the slider going to emergency mode. Once i take the sim out then I can access the different functions/cydia. I jailbroke it using limera1n and I did not have a sim in it while i JB it. Not sure if that has anything to do with it.

    i will go and buy a phone card sim to see it helps.

    That won't help. Was just wondering how you got past the emergency call screen in the first place.

    Was it a ATT sim card? Try installing cydia.pushfix.info in cydia and installing hacktivation patch.

    Shd I restore, activate using phonebook sim and then JB and unlock again ? What do you say ?

    No don't use a phonebook sim. You will definitely have that issue with using one of those.

    Also check what it says under carrier in settings/general/about.

    Yes take the sim out to try it. Not sure if it will work on 4.0.2. It will tell you when you go to install it. If that doesn't work you can also try SAM.
