    Default Purchasing 3gs & wanting to jailbreak

    I'm planning to purchase my 1st iPhone this coming week, a 16 gb 3GS. I'm not technically savvy at age 60 regarding jailbeak. Sure, I understand what it makes available, but I need some direction. I work off a PC w/Windows XP.

    <> Is it possible, with the 3GS & the new upgrade (3.1.2.), to jailbreak this phone? I thing so, but Iím confused w/the discussion about the newest firmware & baseband version.

    <> If it is possible, seems like there's a few different programs (PwnageTool, Blackra1n, redsn0w). I'm not clear which to use or recommended for a new 3GS using a PC w/Windows xp. One program causes you to reconnect w/your PC & jailbreak again if the battery dies, or reboot is required, correct? Does one work best/support wi-fi?

    <> Ok, Iíve purchased by new 3GS, bring it home, & now what? What is the best, simplies, clear source to help me jailbreak?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    2. Do a search for "tethered jailbreak" because all your questions are clearly asked and answered in detail.
    3. Do not use your age as an excuse. At age 60, you're only marginally older than me, and I figured it out just fine by searching and reading.
