Is there an UN TEATHERED JB option for a 3GS and 3.1.2???
I know there's blackrain, but is that the ONLY option for 3.1.2?
I'm going to buy a used iphone 3GS next month, and I'd like to not have to tether when I reboot the phone. I need to JB and Unlock.
New 3GS' need a JB, but the OLD 3GS' with an old boot rom don't need to tether to reboot?
What is the main benefits of 3.1.2 compared to 3.0? I have 3.0 on my 3G now and its fine.
When im buying a new phone, how can I tell wether it has the new bootrom or the old one?
Can I go to Settings>General> then what?

2. You are correct about the tethering for Old vs. New. The general rule of thumb is look at the 4th and 5th number on the serial, if it is 40 or higher, it will likely need to be tethered, but a few people have gotten lucky, don't plan on being one of those.
3. 3.1.2 has a number of fixes in it look at apples website or any number of sources to see what things it fixed/improved.
4. Settings>General>About>Serial Number

I just got my 3GS from Best Buy on Saturday and got lucky enough to get the old bootrom. I have done a lot of searching around as far as the many jailbreaking tools and it looks like blackra1n is the only option I found. This has a good run down of what PwnageTool 3.1.4 works with: www DOT appsafari DOT com/software/10036/pwnagetool-314/

Redsn0w and blackra1n are for jailbreaking on windows/mac.
PwnageTool is for jailbreaking on mac only.
Ultrasn0w/blacksn0w are used for unlocking on 3G/3G[s]. yellowsn0w and BootNeuter are used for unlocking the iPhone 2G.
Bottom line? If you have a new 3G[s], that uses a tethered jailbreak, there's nothingthat you can do right now. Geohot has already stated that he's waiting for 3.2 before he releases that expoit/jailbreak.
