yes that is true if you ever wanna update/restore your device you will have to do it with custom firmwares but if apple releases a firmware update for your iphone with a baseband higher than 6.15.00 than you will be able to update through itunes with the original firmware

this is how you update to 6.15.00

1st step: Download redsn0w_9.6b6 - (scroll down slowly until you see update #6) if running on mac click the OSX if running on windows click windows to download redsn0w

2nd step: Download your IDevice firmware -

3rd step: Open redsn0w_9.6b6 > click browse > find the firmware you just downloaded > click next

4th step: Make sure the install cydia box and install ipad baseband is checked than click next

5th step: Now turn your IDevice off and place it in DFU mode NOTE: on redsn0w it will show you how to put it in DFU mode if you do not know how to than click next

6th step: Just sit back for a couple of minutes while redsn0w does the rest of the work for you

NOTE: If running on Windows 7 and Vista users, run redsn0w as Administrator in “XP Compatiblity Mode"

NOTE: If redsn0w does crash don't worry just re-open it and start all over sometimes you might need to restart computer

NOTE: if your have iphone 3GS running on IOS 4.2.1 than this will be a tethered jailbreak
