ANY soulution for Jailbreak of NEW 3GS without Tethered JB?
So, I traded in my 2g for a 3gs. It is a very new one with 943 as the determining digits in the serial. I used blackra1n to JB, but it is a tethered JB, and some apps (upon install) hard reset your phone requiring a rerain to boot.. Does quickpwn have a solution for the JB that doesnt require this?

sorry for the question too....but if you download an app that requires a reboot then you do the jailbreak again and AGAIN you download the same app and isn't it like a cycle??? you will never get the app you want anyways.....
sorry if i don't make sense it's too early for me....

Initially I was thinking the same thing as you angelgirl, but when you re-run blackra1n it leaves your phone the way it was prior, meaning the new app should be installed. I am not certain on this (I have an older 3gs) but I do know for a fact that when you run blackra1n it does not delete any of your apps. I think you should be fine.

I have the newer Iphone too. I happen to be away from charging my phone leaving my battery dead. Upon charging, I could not use my phone once charged until I came back to my computer and ran Blackrain. So don't power down completely or reboot if possible.
I guess we will have to be patient until a fix comes out for the new bootrom phones.

im gonna buy the 3gs in december and i am afraid bc sometimes when the iphone starts acting up i feel the need to do a reboot...so i guess i will have to stop doing it unless i'm near my pc...
question....if im not near a pc and my phone turns off....am i still going to be able to use it non-jailbreak or is it going to be on restore mode?

If your iPhone has the new bootrom found in the iPod Touch 3rd gen and iPhone 3gs and you reboot your screen will show cennect to iTunes. To get past this screen and boot up with everything saved connect to a computer and run the BlackRa1n application. So yes if you are not near your PC and it reboots you'll have to go find a computer download BlackRa1n and plug it in.
