Hey I found a fairly easier way for this one. This website is really helpful. It successfully JB and unlocked my iPhone 3G.

I went to that site. It asks "Activation yes/no". Can you advise what that means?
tennsmith7 - December 26, 2010 at 8:54pm
Yes, that is asking if you want to hacktivate your iPhone or not. So if you hacktivate you wont need an AT&T SIM and connect it to iTunes. It will already be done when your iPhone boots In my case I need to activate because I am not an AT&T user, I bought my iPhone from eBay.

WRONG LINK. In article there is link to redsn0w 0.9.6b4 not 0.9.6b5, so grab it here instead:

I hv an iphone 3G 8 GBI upgraded to 4.2.1 using redsn0w and the firmware provided here. Post which I unlocked with ultrasn0w last night. Now my battery drainage has gone up drastically. It's going to 0 in 2-3 hours. NEE URGENT HELP.

Is this jailbreak tethered or untethered?

Please help me I install the new ios 4.2.1 and I flow all the steps and sucsess but the problem with ultrasn0w not work what should I do please thank you

Read what the text says: DO NOT UPDATE IF YOU RELY ON CARRIER UNLOCK. Wait until Ultrasn0w is fixed. You can jailbreak now, but you CANNOT UNLOCK yet.

Why I need to save shsh blobs ? I have 3G locked with 05.14.02 should I follow this tutorial or I need to wait for version with using saved blobs?

Okay, I can follow these steps. In fact i have followed them before when i originally jailbroke my 3G - which leads to my question: I have a 3G, jailbroken and unlocked (I am not reliant on unlock but have used it when I travel - I can therefore jailbreak at 4.2 and wait patiently for an unlock) 4.0 ios, bb 5.13.04, my shsh blobs are saved up to 4.01 on Cydia So do I upgrade to 4.2 prior to following these steps? If yes, should I choose the "restore" tab? In which case will I lose all my app settings? (i lost them all the last time I did this) Many thanks for your expertise and clear instructions Sue
