    Your first step would be to download redsn0w, choose extras, shsh blobs, and query Cydia.

    You'll want to see if you have any blobs for 6.x versions of iOS.

    You'll also need to know if the phone was unlocked using any of the old unlocks or if it was unlocked by the carrier. This will change how you'll want to handle upgrades.

    Hi Natasftw
    Thanks for your reply.
    I think it was an unlock phone, (a second hand phone used by someone in US)
    I had given to a local guy in India, He installed cydia in my iphone 3gs to get started. so that i can use vodafone carrier to make calls.

    Please let me know, how to go step by step,
    OR you need more info...

    thankyou

    You'll want something like this. The key for you is to not update your baseband as the unlock would be lost if it wasn't done by AT&T.

    However, you'll need SHSH blobs for 6.x. To find those, follow the instructions to download redsn0w from the tutorial. Click Extras, SHSH Blobs, Query Cydia. If you do that, it'll provide you with a list of iOS versions you're able to work with. You'll want 6.0-6.1.2 Somewhere in there will allow you to jailbreak with an untethered solution.

    After the tutorial, has a tool to jailbreak easily. Download it and follow on-screen instructions.

    She asked you if Cydia saved your shsh, because without them you cannot do this. She also wanted to know how the phone was unlocked in order to save you from future mistakes. Until you answer these questions, we cannot assist you further.

    Yes. We do. We've asked twice now if Cydia saved your SHSH. Usually at the top it will say "SHSH: " in green with a bunch of numbers. Is it there? We need to know this because, again, without SHSH you cannot restore to anything other than 6.1.3​.

    It's not worth it.

    If they can't answer that question, they certainly won't be able to follow the process to install iOS from redsn0w.

    You cannot restore to anything other than 6.1.3. To do this you would need sn0wbreeze to preserve your baseband. Depending on how old your 3GS is, this would either be an untethered or tethered jailbreak.

    I already answered this. You need to use sn0wbreeze and preserve your baseband. Youcan also use redsn0w, though that is a two step process.

    Told ya. Not worth the hassle.

    They're insulting you by pretending after the two mentions to think you believe pirating is not their motivating factor. And to top that off, they refuse to listen to anything and ask the same questions over again.
