    I have researched this and am finding conflicting answers.

    I purchased my iphone 3G (8gb) about a month or so ago and would like to jailbreak it. I do not believe it ever had any other firmware other than 3.1.3 on it, and has never been jailbreak-ed previously.

    When attempting to restore to a custom IPSW made my sn0wbreeze, It gets stuck in the "Preparing iPhone for restore" part, or will give an error (160#)

    From what I've read, Sn0wbreeze should be able jailbreak my device. It says it can jailbreak iphone 3G on 3.1.3, not that it can jailbreak iphone 3G on 3.1.3 ONLY if it has been jailbreak-ed before (or had 3.1.2 firmware before etc). If the latter is true, it should be stated up front, not hidden amidst forums.

    I suppose it should be said that I do not want to UNLOCK my device. I am already on AT&T.

    In the event that I am just a moron that doesn't know what he is doing and the device CAN be jailbreak-ed, would someone direct me to the suitable tool?

    sn0wbreeze clearly states it has to be pre jailbroken on 3.1.2 or lower. With that being said download redsn0w 0.9.4 and iphone 3g firmware 3.1.2. open up redsnow and point it at the 3.1.2 firmware you downloaded and it will jailbreak.

    I have an iPhone 3G 16Gb arriving in the morning and wondered what firmware WILL BE ON it by default. It will be brand new.

    No problem

    sometimes people on the forum that don't have enough info necessary confuse others with their posts

    Again thanks from me also. I have an iPod touch so I am familiar with Jailbreaking as far as that is concerned, I guess the procedure is exactly the same?
