I know it's a little bit old firmware. I wonder if i can update my 3gs to last firmware and jailbreak it with evasion ? If there is such thing i will be very happy. I need a new iphone but it's not the time yet :)

Yes, this jailbreak will be compatible with the 3GS, just update your phone to the latest firmware before you jailbreak.

If OP requires an Ultrasn0w unlock they should stay away from 6.1. Be careful what you advise.

Despite of unlocked 3gs, you saying that I will directly update to latest firmware and then i will run the program ?

(04 Feb '13, 00:10) knamli knamli's gravatar image

Yes, but because you are most likely Ultrasn0w unlocked do not go to 6.1 You can go to 6.0 or 6.0.1 if you have the SHSH

Otherwise Just save your 6.1 SHSH with TinyUmbrella and don't update until ultrasn0w or ultrasn0w fixer gets an update.

yes i have SHSH from cydia. So, i will update my phone with restore button through a downloaded 6.0.1 firmware ?

(04 Feb '13, 00:16) knamli knamli's gravatar image

No, you need to use a custom firmware or redsn0ws restore feature

(04 Feb '13, 00:37) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

And if you want to know, its an untethered jailbreak. How can i learn which unlock is used for my phone ?

Open Cydia- go to Manage- is Ultrasn0w installed?

(04 Feb '13, 00:16) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

yes it is. So Im updating my phone to 6.0.1

(04 Feb '13, 00:25) knamli knamli's gravatar image

That will work, You need to use a custom firmware. I still advise waiting until the jailbreak is actually released.

(04 Feb '13, 00:33) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

Custom firmware ? With which program will i create a custom one ?

(04 Feb '13, 00:40) knamli knamli's gravatar image

Everything you need to do is really a mess. It can be done it's just a hassle currently. I really advise waiting until the jailbreak is released and other tools are updated. A week maybe.

If you really want to do this as soon as evasi0n is released, I'll begin the instruction..

(04 Feb '13, 00:45) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

ok i will be waiting for them. Thanks for helping me. If you can infrom me about instruction i will be very happy.

(04 Feb '13, 00:47) knamli knamli's gravatar image

Windows or Mac? Also, do you have a sim card for the original carrier? It will be needed to activate the phone with, or we need to hack it.

(04 Feb '13, 00:49) cybr1d ♦ cybr1d's gravatar image

(04 Feb '13, 14:35) knamli knamli's gravatar image
