    I upgraded to 3.0, and I want to jailbreak it only, not unlock it. By default, does Redsn0w unlock it as well?

    Specs:
    Hardware: iPhone 3G 16GB
    Carrier: AT&T
    Firmware: 3.0 (non-jailbroken)

    I need to know in the next 10-20 mins btw. Leaving for 3 weeks tomorrow, without access to anything capable of Jailbreaking.

    Redsnow is for the iPod touch 2G. Yellowsnow is for the iPhone(s). Also, you have to be at a certain baseband.

    It's all very confusing isn't it can some 1 explain?
    As far as I can make out Yellowsnow was released in the New Year to unlock the 3G i phone working with 2.2 firmware but does not unlock if you have a newer baseband installed ie. newer 3G i phones or if you updated the firmware/baseband.
    Ultrasnow is going to be released via Cydia in the next few days it's function is to:Unlock all 3G i Phones on any baseband- BUT NOT THE 3GS.
    If you have a jaibroken i phone via Yellowsnow restore via i tunes then update with the latest firmware 3.0 and jailbreak using Redsnow. Ultrasnow will enable the i phone to unlock with the 3.0 firmware and the newer baseband, so far as I can make out- if your i phone 3G is jailbroken with Yellowsnow do a restore in i tunes, update the firmware and jailbreak with Redsnow. Add the source for Ultrasnow in Cydia when released and proceed to unlock your 3G with Ultrasnow.
    PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong.
