Nedd some help...NEW 3GS 3.01 MC model
Ran out today and purchased a brand new 32gig 3GS from the AT&T store. I purchased one from older stock (week 36) to ensure I got the older bootrom. It came with FW 3.01 and modem FW 04.26.08. The model number is MC137LL.
My question is can I jailbreak this phone? I have read some posts that says a model MC cannot be jailbroken?
If it can be jailbroken, what steps should i take to ensure that i preserve the baseband to be able to unlock in the future?
I have searched google, but there is SO much info, it is hard to determine which is correct.

you need to look at the 4th and 5th numbers for the serial number for what week the iphone was made (or shipped or something). i asked the att salesman to go in the back and look at all the serial numbers, 4th and 5th numbers only, and let me know. my store had 1 '36', 1 '37', a few '39' etc...i was told you were safe for jailbreaking for all '39' or less...
i took the '36'. the saleman didn't care...
Thanks. but why can't I first jailbreak the 3.01 using redsnow on the PC, then i can backup the 3.0 ECID SHSH via cydia. and then i can create a custom IPSW to upgrade to 3.1.2 with pnage tool on the mac? all the while keeping my baseband intact for future unlocking?

And you can jailbreak your 3GS with redsnow, then get the custom firmware to preserve your unlock. That's just fine.
The hard part ( can be ) finding the PROPER firmware for your device.
