    Anyone know how to jailbreak or unlock the 3g from 4.1 yet? I did something stupid and I downloaded the new 4.1 and it locked my phone, anyone have any suggestions of what I can do or should do?

    if u were jailbroken you can downgrade back if you clicked make my life easier when you set up cydia.

    very easy to do,

    my wife just got a 4 and i did a complete delete of her 3g and had to do the same thing.

    I am new to the idea of jailbreaking...had a iP3 prior to having my current iP4. Since I downloaded the new 4.1 software, I can't jailbreak until an update comes out to jailbreak the newest software, correct? If that makes any sense.

    Unless you had a earlier version of ios on that device and saved your shsh blobs that were signed by apple no you have to wait for the 4.1 jailbreak release.

    If you're using a 3G, you don't need to have SHSHs saved. That's only for the 3GS and above. The 3G you can just restore to a custom firmware, then jailbreak. Have a look at the chart here for some ideas:

    is that because apple has stopped writing the software updates for 3g, like earlier generations?

    It's because Apple only started using ECID authentication with the 3GS model. You can read more about it here:

    Slightly off topic: how does that 3G do on 4.1? Is it as slow as 4.0? The wife is still on 3.1.3, and has been asking me to upgrade it for her. I resisted after hearing how bad 4.0 ran. Thanks!

    I have a 3G, was JB'ed with 4.0.1, and hated it. My iPhone was barely usable, with all the freezes and crashes. I upgraded to 4.1, and though I miss my jailbreak (for now), I am *much* happier. I will re-JB when I can, but with 4.1 I'm enjoying actually using my phone again.
