Brand new iPhone questions
I will be receiving a brand new iPhone 3GS in about 2 weeks time (Vodafone) and I want to jailbreak it.
Having read stuff online, I have some questions/clarifications if you guys wouldnt mind. A lot of the guides are conflicting and confusing.
Apparently becuase its new, it will have to be a tethered jailbreak. I know what this means but Id like to get some opinions on this...One of the bad points of the iphone I have heard about time and time again is battery life lasting a mere day. Is it much hassle to re-jailbreak it?
What happens if I am not near my PC when I get power back to the iphone? What will work and what wont?
What are the common problems with the 3GS jailbreak? I have read about push email, wifi, itunes etc - breaking in some scenario or another.
Finally, I know I'll probably try it regardless (I can always revert, right? ) - which guide should I follow?
Thanks in advance

1. I don't think its a hassle to rejailbreak, You just run blackra1n and its rejailbroken.
2. You download blackra1n and rejailbreak.
3. There are several problems people have had jaibreaking... But a restore [as new] will most likely fix it.
4. Yea you can always restore, You should follow this guide....
Wait a sec:
Note: For those of you who are planning on jailbreaking your new iPhone 3GS with the updated bootrom, you should be aware that BlackRa1n supports only a tethered jailbreak. This simply means if you have to reset your phone or your battery runs out on you, you will need to connect your device to your computer and run BlackRa1n to be able to boot your iPhone.
