    Hey All,

    ..as the title says, which Jailbroken firmware would sell for more in an eBay auction, FW 3.1.2 (old boot rom firmware etc.) or 3.1.3 (Spirit JB)?

    Basically: Which is more desirable and would hold more value to a bidder?

    I'm planning to list my 16GB iPhone 3G on eBay and would like to do this right the first time!

    Thanks in advance!

    3.1.2 so long as it was never upgraded to 3.1.3. It lets people unlock it.

    I'm thinking of selling my 3GS on 3.1.2 jailbroken and unlocked to get $ for the new model coming out

    I agree wit Big9erfan, 3.1.2 for sure bc it can be unlocked. Might as well take advantage now bc once 3.1.3 can be unlocked, won't be worth as much.

    3.1.3 won't be unlocked
    Tru, but once 4.0 drop in June/July they'll have an unlock. So better to capitalize on the opportunity now

    There will be PLENTY of people still buying the 3GS once the new device is out. Even if I wait, until 4.0 is jailbroken and unlocked, people will still pay good money for it, possibly enough for me to cover my early upgrade. We'll see. My girlfriend is upgrading her phone and going to move to my plan for a family plan at some point this year. That might boost me to an early upgrade.

    I sell my iPhone every year on eBay to the latest and greatest. I sold it last year for $475.00 in like 1 minute. With my 3gs on 3.1.2 I'm expecting like $550-$600. People don't want contracts so they buy them on eBay.

    If you're on a 3GS you're not getting your unlock back bc there's a new baseband version that hasn't been unlocked. Going down to 3.1.2 will not downgrade the baseband.
