    Newbie here.....

    hoping someone can answer a question ...looking at a new 32gb 3gs with serial number 86939XXXXXX....so it should be from 39th week of 09.

    i do not know the bootrom(iboot),or the baseband.

    Im assuming it is still version 3.1.2 since the serial number is from last year.

    can anyone tell me with any certainty,can i JB and unlock this with only knowing the serial number????

    thanks!

    why can't you access the phone info like firmware and baseband under general setting?

    I have a 32GB 3GS and the serial starts with 88929xxxx and it's a non-tethered jailbreak. I don't know that anyone can tell you with certainty that you'll be able to jailbreak it without knowing the firmware it has.

    If you take the iPhone, go to ih8sn0w.com and run the program on that website called f0recast, it will tell you right then and there all of the information you need.

    1 - yes you must jailbreak to unlock
    2 - yes
    3 - you can unlock without the new sim. Unlocking just breaks it free from requiring a sim card from a specific carrier.

    Just make sure you don't upgrade to 3.1.3. If something happens and you find yourself required to upgrade to 3.1.3 use sn0wbreeze to create a custom 3.1.3 that preserves the baseband with 3.1.2 and preserves your jailbreak.

    Best of luck!

    thanks everyone.....it was a piece of cake with blackra1n and the suggestions mentioned above. Great forum here!

    One thing im wondering....i seem to drop 3G coverage every so often,and even at times lose my connection which it DID NOT DO before the JB.

    other then that,this phone now rocks!

    thanks

    I've not heard of anything attributable to blackra1n. blacksn0w is a different story altogether.

    The only defect that I'm aware of with blackra1n is that it broke YouTube, Push (with hacktivation) and WiFi.

    AND you had to manually add the ability to browse your system files via USB.

    But other than that, yeah, blackra1n is pristine.

    Well you can fix the first using pushfix, the second by installing afc2add.

    Exactly. All stuff that normally comes with the redsn0w jailbreak.

    geohot rushed to release, an had tons of problems because of it. Lots of people weren't savvy enough to fix those problems.

    Hi, I bought a 3GS recently with the same baseband and MC145 model number. I'm in the US and people are telling me that I bought a Canadian Rogers iphone. Is yours a Rogers phone too? How can I jailbreak it?

    I'm going crazy here!
    Thanks
