    I'm about to buy a used 3GS from someone who have been using stock phone, never JB and never unlocked. He updated the phone to 4.0 today.

    With the above in mind, will the upcoming release be able to jb/unlock said phone?

    (Also...should I buy it? Used 16GB 3GS for 200, I'm currently using a 2G :p)

    I can unlock it even though it's on the newest OS/baseband/whatever?

    I don't need the JB yet, just the unlock so...

    Basically all 3GS can be unlocked at this point? But you have to JB before you unlock right?

    If you buy it, put 3.1.3 on it to jailbreak and unlock. Depending on the iBoot version, you may be able to jailbreak 4.0 when Pwnage Tool for 4.0 is released (maybe later today).

    NO. Apple stopped signing 3.1.3 yesterday. You're screwed with 4.0

    That sucks...alot.

    The jailbreak that's coming out, is it EXPECTED to be able to jb and unlock the newest official firmware/baseband?

    Thanks.
