Do I have to pay 10 bucks when I'm jailbreaking it anyway?

    First thing's first, I am willing to pay for the 3.0 upgrade. The thing is: I just bought my touch a week ago and then I jailbroke it using quickfreedom; I remember downloading a 2.2.1 os even if I already had it in my touch. I'm not that well-informed in the jailbreaking algorithm, so I'm just wondering if it ten bucks would just go into waste when the jailbreak program would require me to download a modified one (idk). I didn't try to understand the process thoroughly 'coz I just followed the instructions

    if you pay to update to 3.0 and then want to jailbreak it you do not have to fork out more money it will use the excisting 3.0 firmware file you have paid for

    Of course you need to pay, it has nothing to do with the jailbreak.
    And even if you could, that would be illegal!

    You need to pay for the 3.0 firmware update from Apple

    Not the jailbreak.....

    That is actually not true. You must download the firmware because quickpwn pulls some files from it and it is illegal to distribute just those files. This is why you must download firmware to jailbreak.
