    I just got an iphone from a friend and it is already unlocked on 2.1.1,
    which is most likely unlocked with yellowsn0w. I want to update the iphone to 3.0
    and jailbreak/unlock again by using redsn0w. I remember being told that when you unlocked
    your iphone with yellowsn0w, you should not use redsn0w. Is that true? Or can I use redsn0w.

    Thanks

    First, update to 'regular' 3.0.
    Then, use redsn0w to jailbreak.
    Then, if you need to, you can unlock using ultrasn0w.

    So you need ultrasnow too? Impossible...
    I helped my friend jailbreak his iphone 2g. In the software, there is also and option that
    allows you to unlock it too! You just need the bin files. Now he is using a t-mobile carrier...
    I'm a stuck

    You download ultrasn0w from Cydia.

    yellowsn0w is the unlock for 2.X firmwares. for 3.0 Firmwares, yellowsn0w does not work. the new unlock for Firmware 3.0 is Ultrasn0w. (3.0 ONLY).

    You will need to restore your iphone to 3.0 via iTunes. Then Jailbreak using redsn0w, a application for your PC (windows/Mac). After your phone is jailbroken you need to install Ultrasn0w via Cydia (Open Cydia, add the source http://Repo666.Ultrasn0w.com, and download Ultrasn0w.)

    do not download yellowsn0w on 3.0 as it does absolutely nothing.

    But I thought redsn0w 0.72 includes the unlocking (Does it have to do with 2g?)

    Anyways thanks, I take your advice for it ;]

    rensn0w will both jailbreak and unlock 2g or lower. It will jailbreak a 3g, but ultrasn0w is needed to unlock 3g @ 3.0 firmware.

    it can get confusing. Everything depends on the firmware you are running and the phone you have.
