    I have an old 3gs jailbroken and running 4.33 on 5.16.02

    what are my options if i call ATT to unlock. If i restore i'll lose my jailbreak :(

    Does SAM work with this? I think i'm using SpiritJB or Jailbreakme 3.0. I can't remember.

    You can still JB on 5.1 on a 3GS.
    No need to preserve the baseband since the only reason for that was for unlocking.

    but isn't the 5.1 jailbreak tethered or have they released an untethered one already? link??

    On the original 3GS with the older rom, it's untethered.

    Check here for instructions...

    Use the Untethered Holidays post instructions.
    This will get you on 5.01 untethered.

    The 5.1 jailbreak (March Mayhem) is "supposed" to be untethered for non-A5 devices...
    ...but I haven't tried it yet.

    Here's how to check your bootrom version.

    thanks. Will try it when i get home from work :D Hopefully i'll have an old bootrom, or i can always wait until 5.1 untethered comes out.
