    I'm new, so if this has been discussed prior I offer my apologies and simply ask for a link to research the topic, as I haven't been able to find a definitive answer. My google-fu is weak.

    I'm running an iPhone 3G on 3.1.3. I've previously used Spirit and redsn0w to jailbreak it, but I recently did a full restore and need to jailbreak it again. What is the most recommended jailbreak for the 3G on 3.1.3? I don't need a carrier unlock, just the jailbreak.

    Thanks!
    Tim.

    your only options are spirit, jailbreakme, or redsn0w. jailbreakme is by far the easiest although I personally prefer redsn0w, if you will look in the guide section of these forums you will find guides for using all 3, here is a link for you http://modmyi.com/guides/

    redsn0w 0.9.4 or jailbreakme.com should both work fine. The choice is yours

    Ah, that's right, jailbreakme.com. Forgot about that one. Something about jailbreakme.com doesn't sit well with me and I don't know what it is. =/

    With redsn0w I have to DL the 3.1.2 IPSW if memory serves, but with Spirit I do not. Is there any technical reason why one is better than the other? Or is it really just a "pick the name you like better" kinda thing?

    Thanks again!
    Tim.

    for 3.1.3 redsn0w is not really any better than Spirit, I have been using redsn0w for a long time so that is why I prefer it, both were released by the same dev team FWIW

    Well then, I think I'll go with Spirit. Less downloading, heh.

    Thanks again!

    I wouldn't choose Spirit. Go with Redsn0w.

    Make sure you have the fixed version of spirit if you have itunes 9.2 or later.

    Seeing that you have a Mac, PwnageTool will work for you too. I prefer PwnageTool as it maintains your baseband, allowing carrier unlocking.
    Until the next time… And if I help you out, give me a "Thanks!" Thanks!
