Little help with a 3gs jailbreak
Hello! I'm new in this forum, some friends told me about this forum and I'd love to have some help from you guys!
I just got a 16gb Iphone 3gs (kinda old but it serves the purpose )
*I'ts jailbreaked with a custom 4.1 rom.
*not a factory unlocked phone.
I want to update to 5.0.1 but I can't do it, Can't find the right tutorial. every single tutorial i found works only for unlocked phones and I think it won't work for me! .. Could someone help me please? I'm stuck! (sorry for my bad english :o)

Could you deal with a tethered jailbreak or staying at 4.1, as they are your only options unless you have a saved shsh blob file for 5.0.1.
Hope this helps.

Since the iphone 3Gs is jailbroken already on 4.1, from what I read it's definitely doable. You can use Tinyumbrella to backup your SHSH blobs. Then, in Cydia at the top of the first screen it will tell you what version(s) of the SHSH blobs are saved. Chances are it says versions 4.1 and higher. Using pwnage tool on Mac or snowbreeze on Windows, you create a customized ipsw of 5.0.1 and then restore via iTunes using the "trick" of having Tinyumbrella up to validate/sign the IPSW so you can update to 5.0.1.
This is how I understand it since the iPhone 3GS is already jailbroken.
