    Ok so I'm thinking of getting an iPhone 3GS and I'm confused about the purplera1n stuff. If I get an iPhone 3GS and run it off of AT&T then do I need to do the purplera1n to still get the jailbreak to work later when that comes out. Or is purplera1n for unlocking the phone. Thanks for help. I probably will see how dumb this question is once i get the answer

    I think that purplera1n is the jailbreak. The unlock will use ultrasn0w like the iPhone 3G. The jailbreak will be out in the not too distance future as it is vulnerable to the 24kpwn bootrom exploit. It also has the same baseband as the iPhone 3G.

    Ok so i figured out purplera1n. but now i have to figure out something else. I might be getting an iPhone in a couple of weeks. Would it be better to get the 3GS or the 3G. my thoughts are that some people say with a software update i might not be able to jailbreak the 3GS at all. and the 3G already has a jailbreak available. So I dont want to buy a 3GS with a firmware update at 3.0.1 or something and not be able to jailbreak ever, cus i love everything about the jailbreak the themes and stuff, so i dont want that to go away and i be stuck with an actual iPhone that does normal iPhone stuff

    The iPhone 3GS has a hole on it's bootrom that will male it jailbreakable for life.
