    Ya, 3GS can always go back to 4.1 since Apple still signs that firmware for 3GS.

    I have never trusted the serial number method of telling. Isnt as accurate. I either check myself with system profiler or device manager or use idetector to tell if it is old or new boot.

    The jailbreak on 5.1 is tethered. You need to use redsnow to "just boot" to be able to use cydia.

    Question before I Jailbreak. I have a 3GS that is still running 4.0.1, can I jailbreak to 5.1 or 5.0.1 (which ever) from 4.0.1? Or do I need to update to something higher first?

    Thanks buddy. Sorry about that, I just figured this page would get more hits than that thread as I was pressed for time. I just went ahead an upgraded to 5.1 and did a jailbreak then. Thanks for the response and Go Dawgs!!

    wondering where my snafu might be here...trying to jailbreak with the redsn0w prog here, but the phone/jb program keeps getting stuck "waiting for iph 4" after identifying the info on the phone...got the initial install of cydia done, but it went on with the white icon for it, and my safari browser wont launch, both apps immediately crash after selection. tried from the point of just booth with it plugged in, it does it's thing, then stays on "waiting for iphone..." i'm stumped...any advice?

    So everything seems to be working great so far. I haven't really had too much time to test everything, but I did notice the camera isn't loading. It responds when you click or drag on the lock screen. However, the shutter never opens, I've let it just sit there on the closed shutter screen for 5 minutes and it never fully loads. Anyone have the same issue, or know of a fix? Thanks

    Edit... I just noticed that the little part at the bottom to switch from camera to video flashes almost like a glitch every couple of seconds.
