    For the 3G, it doesn't matter if the baseband is updated or not. It really depends on the bootloader.

    3G 4.1 w/ BL 5.09+ can be JB but not unlocked.
    3G 4.1 w/ BL 5.08 can be JB and unlocked.

    There is not current unlock for 5.14 baseband. If you are lucky to have one of the first few 3G with the exploitable 5.08 bootloader, you can downgrade unlockable baseband. Chances are most don't. Before going to 4.1, either wait for new unlock or pwnagetool (create custom firmware while keeping baseband).

    I don't know where you get that but it's false. Baseband is what matters when it comes to unlocking not bootloader.
    The 4.1 firmwares bb cannot be unlocked so if you update to the official 4.1 you'd be stuck with no unlock.

    Wrong.
    What he is saying is that the 3G iPhones with bootloader 5.08 will be able to downgrade their baseband so they can unlock. There is a tutorial here that you can add to your google genius library:

    Typically, if your iPhone was manufactured before September (2008), you are 5.08.

    Wrong, he's saying if you have the 5.08 bootloader you can JB and unlock and it all depends on the bootloader and other nonsense.
    Instead he should have said if you are one of the very few iphone 3G devices sold early on iphone 3G launch in 2008 you can downgrade the baseband using fuzzyband and then the downgraded baseband would be able to be unlocked.
    What him and you both misinformed individuals are doing is adding more bad assumptions and confusion.
    But what are you doing still here anyway, you were looking for a good android forum for your dual boot iphone 3GS with ios/android 2.2 right?
    Still havent found one?

    You said the bootloader has nothing to do with it. It does if you have a 3G phone. The end. You're welcome.

    I have more than one phone and it looks like you guys need some help over here. If you don't like being schooled report me to a mod.

    Read his post again and you will see that more than half of what he posted is nonsense.
    I said that the bootloader has nothing to do with the JB and unlock, the baseband does.
    If he is lucky and has a 3G with that bootloader then the bootloader comes into play and he can downgrade his Baseband with fuzzyband in order to unlock it.
    You're welcome newbie:D


    I can care less what you have. You'll probably come out with something crazy again and claim you have an iphone running the new windows Mobile 7:D
    lol

    The 5.08 bootloader is more prevalent than you think which it is why it is worth mentioning. Look at the production date of this 3G (and update your google genius library so you don't make bad assumptions and add confusion):

    And here is a screen shot with the pop-up you get if you have the 5.08 bootloader:

    I just looked at 4 different 3G phones. All have 2009 production dates and all have the 5.08 bootloader.

    The 5.08 bootloader is in less than 5% of iphone 3G sold.
    So update your wiki and also your 3GS with froyo:D

    What happened to " only the very few iphone 3G devices sold early on iphone 3G launch in 2008" have that bootloader? LOL, now it's 5%, what is that, about 3 million? You are googling like crazy, LOL.

    Most likelly a refurb.
    How else would you explain it? You think Apple started putting back the old bootloaders in 2009 iphones genius?
    Lol :D

    Why dont you try again and get your facts straight.
    What is your explanation of those pics you posted up and who knows where you doctored them from.
    You really believe Apple was still putting the old bootloader on iphones in 2009?
    Hey I got a nice bridge for sale also:D
    Interested in a dual boot iphone 3GS also? :D

    Wow, just admit you are wrong and move on. Insinuating I doctored the pics is pathetic.
    Like i said, I just looked at 4 different 3G phones. All have 2009 production dates and all have the 5.08 bootloader. I must be the luckiest guy around, maybe I should buy a lottery ticket.

    Wrong about Apple updating the 3G bootloader shortly after they found out about the downgradable exploit in 2008?
    What kind of smoke are you cracking again?
    Post whatever more nonsense you want dude.

    So, to reiterate.......You can unlock a 3G with 5.14.02 as long as you have bootloader 5.08. You can use f0recast to check. The 3G's with this bootloader are not as rare as the "google genius" people think and they are definitely not limited to the 2008 production run.
    The End.

    Yes, I did. It has been up for days now and the droid forum thread about it is 17 pages long last time I looked. You want a link to it so you can claim I doctored it too? LoL

    YOU HAVE TO USE MORE THAN GOOGLE TO FIND IT< GENIUS!!!
