Suggestions for a 3gs still running 3.1 OS?
A friend of mine recently decided to ask me to jailbreak their 3gs, and when I went in the settings to see what OS was running I believe it was 3.1.something, my question is, is there a way to bring his phone up to 4.2.6 so I can jailbreak it with greenpoison instead of itunes automatically putting 4.3 on it?

You could try loading a 4.2 firmware made with pwnage tool or redsn0w. This will wipe the phone so make sure you do a backup and sync before you begin the procedure. You could also just go to 4.3 like people have said there is a JB for it. Go to iClarified - Apple News and Tutorials and look in the tutorials, iPhone, Jailbreak.

use tinyumbrella to save whatever shs it can, then start it up and then use itunes to install the firmware. Its supposed to make sure the modern firmware isnt upgraded. Its far better than having to use the ipad baseband, but at worse case you ccan use 6.15 and unlock it, you might have gps issues.
