    I have never tried to jailbreak or anything on my 3GS before, and I am interested in doing so now. But I do have a few questions...

    1. I have v3.1.3, I read that it is impossible to jailbreak unless you have oldboot or something like that.. Is it true?

    2. Can you create a system restore point or backup or anything like that before jailbreaking? if so, how?

    3. If I jailbreak right now, would I be able to upgrade to iOS4 when it comes out without disrupting the jailbreak?

    Thank you for any help, as I am virtually clueless.

    From what I've read, only the 3G can be jailbroken, not the 3GS.

    Whenever you update your OS, you lose the jailbreak.

    I think youve been reading the wrong stuff then, because everywhere I look says that the 3GS can be jailbroken

    All the jailbreak tools out there say it only works on the 3G only.

    But if you have information that says otherwise, perhaps you could share that with the member who requested the information.

    Before I upgraded to 4.0, I wasn't able to jailbreak my 3GS on 3.1.3.

    Okay. I stand corrected. The Sprint will JB the 3GS.

    Spirit Jailbreak will indeed jailbreak the 3GS ... And it is quick and easy, really only takes a couple of seconds. When your phone restarts you will see the Cydia app store installed. Happy Jailbreaking!

    Whenever you upgrade to a newer version of iOS, you always lose your jailbreak. This means you will have to re-jailbreak. The only catch is there may or may not be a new jailbreak for iOS4 when it's released.

    So you can either jailbreak now and wait for a jailbreak for iOS4 or get iOS4 when it's released and then wait for the subsequent jailbreak for it.
