    Default Jailbreak new 3GS w/new bootrom

    have tried to unlock and iPhone 3G[S] 3.1.2 05.11.07 with new bootrom using blackrain. At first it appears it's going to work but them the phone locs up and I have to restore. I've been reading that the new boot rom interferes with the process. Does anyone know if this issue has been resolved? Appreciate the assist....

    Sounds like a tethered jailbreak... Search the forum or Google to learn more about tethered 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.
