Thanks for the response.

If you look at similar questions it looks like redsn0w is a potential option.

I have tried greenpois0n countless times, it keeps saying "try again". I believe "the read me" part of the app is accurate. I hope chronic dev will comment as redsn0w and limera1n have failed for me as well.....

My carrier is offering the 3GS for a pretty good deal so I may be upgrading so I can actually jailbreak. Kind of funny IMO that a upgrade will allow me to

Best regards, Alan

Hi, greenpois0n doesn't support iPhone 3G. your alternative is redsn0w 0.9.6rc8 or you can also use sn0wbreeze 2.2.1

limera1n and greenpois0n both don't support iPhone 3G. you better use redsn0w/sn0wbreeze/pwnagetool.

Redsn0w will give a similar experience as Greenpois0n does, i.e. it will jailbreak your idevice as is, whereas Sn0wbreeze & Pwnage will require restoring to the custom firmware it creates i.e. it wipes your idevice and you have to sync everything back.
