    Hi, I just got a brand new iPhone 3G running 3.0.1 and I needed some help jailbreaking it and using it with my Tmobile sim card. I read online that you need to install Tzones or something and I'm not exactly sure how I can even run internet or use my text message plans. Help is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

    Yeah you need to do a few extra steps to be able to use your t-mobile sim card. Just follow this guide scroll down to where it says 3G(2nd gen) and follow that part of the guide to get your iPhone unlocked.

    yeah you need wifi to download ultrasn0w. Unless you have a friend that has an iPhone on AT&T and they are willing to let you borrow their sim card for about 5 minutes so you can download ultrasn0w from cydia

    Sorry to bug again but there seems to be an error. When I select browse on redsn0w and locate my firmware 3.0.1, redsn0w says that it is incompatible. My iPhone is running 3.0.1 and I'm not sure how to downgrade to 3.0 if that is necessary.
