    Hey all,

    Long time no post - I am still a proud owner of a first gen iPod touch which I bought and jailbroke way back in the xmas of 2007.

    Long story short - i'm now looking at getting an iPhone 16gb 3GS. Are they jailbreakable? I've tried going through the different threads here, but because I havent stayed up to date with the scene, i'm having a little difficulty getting my head around some of the info here regarding bootroms, OS versions, etc.

    So, tell me guys - if I go buy a new iPhone 3GS today, am i likely able to jailbreak it? And if so, is it an easy process these days?

    Cheers for your advice in advance

    If its on 3.1.3 you wouldn't be able to jailbreak.

    And i'm guessing that is what it's likely to be on?

    Is there a jailbreak forthcoming for that?

    it was just said today that geohot found another exploit yesterday and that a jailbreak will be out before the end of the month. Then apple will patch it for 4.0 but he still has the original exploit he found way back when.

    Typing this from my new 32gb iPhone 3GS. Love it. Can't wait for a jailbreak.

    And yes it is 3.1.3.

    Care to be a bit more specific? I've been out of the game for a while.

    Sure thing, basicly the first batch of iphone 3gs that came out had a bootrom in them that was exploited and can be used to jailbreak.

    Apple fixed this and started shipping out new iphone 3gs which had an updated bootrom which patched the jailbreak exploit.

    The new iphone 3gs have a serial number that starts with "MC" and this means that they have the new bootrom and therefore cant be jailbroken currently.

    However if the 3gs has any other serial number then you can use "sn0wbreeze" created by ihatesn0w to jailbreak your 3gs.

    Hey so my serial no doesn't start with MC but my model no does. Assume that means I can't jailbreak it?
