    Hello, I'm wondering if it's possible to jailbreak, downgrade, and unlock a brand new iphone 3g with 3.1.3 software already on it. I bought one from walmart with no contract, but it came with 3.1.3. Is it jailbreakable, downgradable,or unlockable? Thanks

    I'm not that knowledgeable with jailbreaking, but how come I can't jailbreak, downgrade, or unlock it?

    You can jailbreak it with redsn0w as is. You can't downgrade it because the device can only downgrade to firmwares that were previously installed on it. Not sure about the unlock but I'm going to guess that you can't.

    so its possible to jailbreak it. I heard that a program from Cydia called Fuzzyband could possibly downgrade it? Has anyone tried it and was successful?

    If its on 5.12 baseband there is no unlock yet. But once you jailbreak with redsn0w you can get fuzzyband from cydia and then check to see what bootloader you have. If its 5.8 it will let you sefely downgrade the baseband to 4.26 (i think.) But you have to be realy lucky to have 5.8 bootloader since not many iphones were made with it. Mines with 5.9 so I couldn't dowgrade it.
