    If I buy a brand new iPhone 3GS will it be on 3.1.2 or 3.1.3?

    I will only buy it if it can be jailbroken.

    It would probably be 3.1.2

    Unless it is a major upgrade, Apple usually just ships with the base firmware. (in this case it is 3.1.2)

    I don't understand wouldn't you need the ECID saved on a server (local or cydia) to jail break a new 3gs even on 3.1.2 - because apple is no longer signing off on 3.1.2 unit to reinstall the firmware, hence with blackra1n you are forced to restore to 3.1.3.

    So on any any 3GS that is either the old bootrom or the new bootrom, it can still be jailbroken and unlocked as long as its on 3.1.2?

    I say not, the burden of proof is against it.

    Well one of my friends bought an 3GS about two weeks ago and it came with 3.1.3.
    So unless you find some old sock you wont be able to find them with 3.1.2 anymore.

    just wait for the iphone 4g it will most likely be released on june/july

    and by that time devs will release an untethered jalkbreak that will hopefully work on the iphone 4g
