    Been doing some research and looking into jailbreaking/flashing a 3GS thats running 3.1.3 with modem 5.12.01. This is a stock 3GS.

    Any of you guys have advice for me which is the easiest and most reliable in order to achieve the jailbreak and then unlock with ultrasn0w

    The only way for you to accomplish this on a stock 3GS with 3.1.3 is to jailbreak with Spirit and then unlock by installing ultrasn0w from Cydia. Tutorials here.

    Barring hardware failure, it is not possible to brick an iPhone. But, yes, Spirit is reliable.

    Thanks for your help.

    I read on the spirit website that it needs to be iTunes earlier than version 9.2? Im using a mac to jb the iphone and im currently on 9.2, that complicates things? I dont see what itunes has to do with it as in the tutorial it doesnt mention anything about iTunes..

    You will have to downgrade to a previous version of iTunes. There is an incompatibility between the Spirit jailbreak and iTunes 9.2 which prevents proper syncing of the phone.

    Yes.
    But if cydia asks you when it first loads to click "make my life easier" you should click it.
    It will save all your SHSh's from now on.
