    OK folks, just got my first iPhone and I'm about to Jailbreak and put it on T-mob. While everyone talks about how super easy it is, I have yet to find a difinitive step by step for this process. It looks like greenpois0n is pretty easy, but also a little buggy. What's the word on redsn0w? is it any better?


    Any last minute pointers would be welcome!

    OS 4.2.1

    Jailbreaking won't allow you to use a T-Mobile sim card in your iphone.

    different phone needs different software to jailbreak. You give us a 4.2.1 which is good. Now, give us more information about which phone you have and baseband.

    Once we have that info, we will be able to guide you to the next step.

    If I am not mistaken, your phone has a baseband of 03.10. You can find out by going to

    Setting/general/about.

    At the bottom of the screen, it gives you the modem firmware which is 03.10.

    Your phone currently can't be unlocked. Only can be jailbroken at the moment. Greenpois0n give you an untethered jailbreak and it works fine. I have no issue with it at all.

    Yeah, 03.10.01
    eeeeewww. OK. What is "Untethered Jailbreak"? does that mean I can use it on Tmob? How long generally before a baseband is unlockable?

    ******. I guess I jumped the gun on that one.

    Good luck not getting banned from the network (whether by IMEI, ICCID, etc) using that method.

    You aren't unlocking that phone. Gonna have to wait for an unlock to be released, whenever that is, who knows.

    Better to sell the phone and get an iphone that you can unlock.

    Agree with what everybody above said except TS. Thread Starter you really couldn't find any info via a search. There is tons of info here and via google.

    Totally agree. I am not sure why people these days can't use their computer to do google search first before posting.
