    Redsn0w says results vary.

    I'm doing this JB because the first and foremost thing is i need to unlock it.

    Can I do this and if it messes up can I just restore to 3.1.2, or do i have to go for 3.1.3

    Thanks for anyone taking the time help me out,

    You can JB with redsn0w 0.9.2. If something goes wrong and you're forced to restore it will be to 3.1.3.

    You are WRONG. MC serial numbers indicate a tethered JB on an IPOD TOUCH ... On a 3Gs, MC/MB means next to nothing.

    Shame on you for spreading misleading lies !

    @ OP: With a week 44 it's very high likely hood of a tethered JB .

    You can always check to be sure. There are some guides on this forum.

    With a week 44 phone it is very likely a tethered JB. Put your device into DFU mode and check your iboot version through either USB view (pc) or your system profiler (mac) there are guides all over the forum on how to get your device into DFU mode.

    If i put into DFU mode. What iBoot version am I looking for ?

    Also if I do this and find out I do not have a good iBoot version will i have to restore to 3.1.3?

    If you have iboot 359.3 it's an untethered JB. If it's 359.3.2, it's tethered. Absolutely do not restore the 3.1.3, then you won't be jailbreakable no matter which bootrom you have.

    This is an untethered JB.

    NO. After you have put it in DFU and checked your iboot, unplug the device and hold the power and Home buttons together to get it to reboot normally.

    It has a .3.2 iBoot after all

    Saved me having to put it back into 3.1.3 I'm not going to bother JB it to just tether it
