Assuming it has the new bootrom, there is currently only a tethered jailbreak (unless something has changed in the last few days ), which means anytime you restart the phone ( power dies, it's running slow, or a app install from Cydia requires a restart ) you have to re-jailbreak.

Do a search for "tethered jailbreak"!
If this is a new 3G[s], then it can still be jailbroken or unlocked, but you just can't ever let the battery die, or reboot the iPhone when the iPhone is not near a computer.
The phone is new. Apple updated the hardware on newer models. Ultimately, when you get the "Connect to iTunes" message, DO NOT RESTORE.
Connect the iPhone to the computer, spend 30 seconds, run Blackra1n RC3/4, RE-jailbreak, and that's it.
It takes less than a minute.
ALSO, being that this is a new iPhone 3G[s], that requires a tethered jailbreak, I also suggest getting a battery case.
A good one is "Case-Mate Fuel" (google it) but it's ugly as sin. It will however, act as a case AND a charger. Or you could go to BestBuy an pick up a "InCase PowerSlider" case.
That, and a car charger. That way the iPhone never goes off. If you have a laptop, that's ideal/superb.
Let me know how that goes.

No, just re-run Blackra1n. It would still be unlocked, it doesn't undo the unlock. The new bootloader prevents the jailbreak from being re-applied automatically on a restart of the phone. Your apps, your unlock should still be fine.

Whats the go with this reboot/tethered jailbreaking stuff?
I've jail broken about eight iphones so far, the latest being my friends that was bought last friday (32gb - 3GS - F/W 3.1.2) and i just run Blackra1n and presto, you dont have to touch anything. Phone can be reset, reboot, turned off etc.
When did this new hardware come in?

Any idea on what serial No.'s we should be looking out for when jailbreaking from here on out? I know thats a bit of unanswerable question, but i thought maybe theres a string of numbers that can be identified before going and jailbreaking any others and finding out the hardway.
