    I'm trying to help a friend find out if he can JB his iPhone 3GS. His numbers are 87003. So that's 3rd week 2010 which means he has a fixed bootrom...?

    If he does have a fixed bootrom what are the drawbacks? I read he's going to have to plug his iphone in and "re-jailbreak" every time he reboots?

    He is running OS 3.1.3 We found a tutorial on iClarified using redsnow to JB his iphone.

    You cannot JB a 3GS iphone on 3.1.3
    No tool available at the moment.
    And its not a fixed bootrom, its called a tethered JB.
    IF he could JB he would have to connect it to a computer and run blackrain each time he needed to restart his iphone or if his battery died and the phone shut off etc....

    No.
    He has to be on 3.1.2 in order to upgrade to a custom JB 3.1.3
    iClarified has a confusing listing on it.
    More info here: http://wikee.iphwn.org/howto:rs9
    redsn0w 0.9.2 This release supports:

    ■All iPhones and iPod touches (still a tethered-only JB for late-model devices though)
    ■Apple firmware 3.0 and 3.1.2
    ■Windows and Mac OSX (x86 only for now)


    More details here:

    If you have an iPhone 3GS: PwnageTool works if you’re currently at version 3.1.2 or below (down to 3.0) and if you know you have a old bootrom. You don’t need to be already jailbroken — PwnageTool will ask you if you’re jailbroken after you’ve created the IPSW. Don’t use PwnageTool unless you know for sure you have an old bootrom (if you’re not sure, assume the worst and don’t use it). Don’t use PwnageTool on the iPhone 3GS if you’re at 3.1.3, it just won’t work. Downgrade to 3.1.2 using the methods described here. If you can’t downgrade because you don’t have your 3GS 3.1.2 hashes on file with Cydia, you’ll need to sit out the 3.1.3 jailbreak.

    We aren’t revealing any new exploits to Apple with this jailbreak. Everything here has been used before, it’s just a straightforward port of Pwnage2 and 24Kpwn to the new firmware. It’s possible the new firmware was released largely to flush out new exploits before the next big release. We won’t be biting.
