    Is there a benefit to using one jailbreak method over another?

    I am looking at the jailbreak sticky's for the iPhone 3GS and there are 3 different sticky's... which one do you recommend? Better battery life is most important to me. Which one is the cleanest/most stable?

    Also, I have FW 3.0 clean right now, looking to jailbreak to 3.0 or 3.1. Is 3.1 jailbreak possible yet?

    TIA

    You can jailbreak 3GS with FW 3.1.2
    The ONLY problem is that you will have to connect the iphone to a computer each time you turn on/reboot your device.

    I know nothing about 3.0.

    If you have a 3GS running on 3.0 it is more than likely an early release; which means your jailbreak will not be tethered and therefore you will not need a computer to restart your device.

    Check the 3rd, 4th, and 5th number of your iPhones serial number. It will be something like 9XX (mine is 924). If it is 939 or smaller you are good. If it is 940 or higher it may have the new iBoot which is a tethered jailbreak (if it is 940 or higher you'll want to check your iBoot version).

    Also, since you have an earlier 3GS you are probably still on modem firmware (AKA baseband) 04.26.08 rather than 05.11.07. If you do have the earlier baseband I would try to keep it if you want to keep the ability to unlock it in the future. Yes the 05.11.07 baseband is unlockable right now but just incase the next firmware update changes things I like to keep the early baseband as another option for an unlock. To keep the early baseband you will need Pwnage tool or at least get the custom firmware made by Pwnage Tool. If you are with at&t and you're not worried about your baseband update to 3.1.2 then run blackra1n for the jailbreak (and unlock if need be).

    Okay, I checked my iPhone, and it has the serial # below 939, so I can jailbreak to 3.1 without worrying about connecting to the computer every time I turn off the iPhone, correct?

    Also: If I jailbreak, can I still unlock it in the future? (3.1 jailbreak)


    Btw, if you know where, can you PM me a link to download the custom firmware? Thanks

    1. Don't ask for links for custom firmwares here.

    And just jailbreak it with blacksn0w and unlock it with blackra1n, easiest method.

    You don't need a custom firmware for blackra1n.

    Are there any problems if you jailbreak it when you are on contract?

    Jailbreaking doesn't violate AT&T Terms of Service, though it does void your warranty.
