    I've got a 3gs running... 5.1 and 05.16.05 with a mfg date of 10-2009. I'm a novice and need some step by step instructions to JB and Unlock. I used iclarified a year ago on one, but don't see a JB for the 3gs now.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    I've jailbroken iOS 4.2.6 and 5.1.1 on the iPhone 4, so I can't help you too much for your specific device. However, have you checked this sticky at the top of this forum---http://forums.imore.com/jailbreak-un...tart-here.html?

    Another place to check is YouTube. When I started jailbreaking I found a lot of videos that helped me visualize what would (should) be happening during the jailbreak, which was helpful.

    It has a lot of information about jailbreaking and will probably answer a lot of your questions. If nothing else, it might give you enough information to ask specific questions before you jailbreak.

    Good luck.

    That's baseband can not be unlocked ..

    Although I hate to recommend but you can update it to the iPad baseband 6.15.00

    Doing so you lose gps .. And you will always have to use custom software and will never be able to restore or update in iTunes if you do you will crash your phone and have to reload with a custom Ipsw .

    If you choose to

    I would update phone to 5.1.1 normally

    Activate with AT&T sim to get to home screen
    Once complete
    Use redsnow a do a teathered JB

    Install Rocky racoon to unteather

    Then use redsnow to update the baseband I never JB and update baseband at same time just because I have had issues that way

    Once complete
    Install ultra snow fixer 5.1.1 then install ultrasnow

    You will now be unlocked on 5.1.1

    But more stuff may be needed to get mms working and iMessage

    Depending on what carrier you will be using

    iMessage fix with use Sam

    I know this is some basic steps but with a friend named google it is pretty easy to accomplish

    Good luck

    Is it an AT&T 3GS? And if so, is it out of contract? If the answer to both of those is yes, then AT&T should be willing to unlock it for free. They changed their stance on this not long ago and have been unlocking out of contract iphones ever since. Worth a call.
