    I am about to use pwnage 3.1 to update to os3.1. I am only doing this for ultrasn0w as my carrier is vodafone (official carrier is o2) so I know I must NOT update the baseband.

    However, I still have my working o2 sim card, so if I activate with that and switch to vodafone afterwards, I'll keep push notifications.

    In pwnage tool, in expert mode, under general, there's a tickbox for "activate the phone". If I untick that will the baseband be updated and lock me out? If I untick it will the baseband be left alone, but I'll activate as normal then switch sim?

    Un-tick the 'Activate the phone' box. I did and all was well. I am also on Vodafone and activated with a legit O2 SIM after JB

    fellow UK user here, I am looking to update and unlock for use with Orange, so I run pwnagetool and then do I choose update in iTunes?

    and whats the difference in yellowsn0w and ulltrasn0w?

    kinda my first time with an iPhone ever so it's just a bit new 3.0.1 unlock was easy and straight forward as there was no baseband update, but with this I'm a little more cautious cause of baseband changed and that I've never had to use pwnagetool with an iPhone before

    does this work?

    I had this idea? did activating the jailborken device with original 02 sim card then unlocking and putting voda sim in.

    Do the push notifications work for you?

    Yes, all works fine doing that.

    I don't know what the difference between yellow and ultrasnow is, all I know is ultra snow worked, yellow snow did not.

    Yellowsn0w is for use on 2.2.x while Ultrasn0w is for use on 3.0/3.0.1 and 3.1 with the 3.0/3.0.1 baseband

    Ooh, I bought an iPhone 3GS as an O2 PAYG. I've since Jailbroken and unlocked it (running on Orange). I like the idea of having Push notifications.

    Is it just as simple as popping my O2 PAYG SIM card back in a running the pwnage tool and hitting the activate button (I've not used the tool before - just ran Redsn0w off my desktop)?

    Or maybe having a 3GS put ***** out of reach for me (just like the JB to 3.1 currently is)?

    Thanks

    Pwnage Tool isn't compatible with the 3Gs. Only the 3.0 version of redsn0w.
