Im gonna go to bestbuy. What are the odds it'll be jailbreakable??
It will be "jailbreakable" (is that a word?) but it will be a tethered jailbreak.
Try AT&T, they usually have older stock than apple and best buy stores.
100%. All iPhones can be jailbroken.
Tethered jailbreak isn't technically 100% all iPhones, there are some constraints that have to be overcomed.
Im meant unteathered....but I went and looked at the BB phones..I got a serial number with the last digits of 37 and its good. Thanks guys
Nice, enjoy your new 3GS.
He didn't ask if his jailbreak would be untethered. He asked what the chances were that he could jailbreak. And the answer to that is 100%, since all iPhones can be jailbroken.
Congrats. You were very lucky. In the future, though, you should be more specific. Jailbreaking and untethering are two different things.
1:1 chance yours will be jailbreakable.
I can testify to this. My 3G crapped out on me (Launch day model, so i can't complain) and I had to go buy another one. The first one came with the new bootloader which patched the exploit which we've all been using to jailbreak for a long time now. I took it back and got a replacement and asked them to pull one from the back that they've had for a long time. I got lucky and got one with 3.1 and the older boot loader. Jailbroken now and i f**king love it (the 3gs screams in comparison). So it's definitely a 1:1 ratio at this point in time. Your chances go up by telling them to grab one of the oldest ones from the back. AT&T does keep older stock (I went to best buy), so your chances might be better there as well. Just tell them you don't want dust on it, you want cobwebs. They might have one that's still jailbreakable, but that windows is slowly closing on us as all of the old stock depletes and random jackoffs get the good phones.
I know, that sucks.
Hope they come out with a new hack for the new bootloader cause having to run software while plugged into a computer in order to restart the phone is a real pain.
How can someone's chances go up from 1:1?
1:1 odds is 50% probability. I think you meant 0:1.
it's just probability expressed in simplified ratios. 1:1 = 50%; 3:2 = 60%, 7:3 = 70%, etc....
even a 60% chance at getting a good iphone is better than being on the sh** end of the deal. I'm glad to hear OP got one that works though.
iPhones are pretty much useless unless they're jailbroken imo.
That still doesn't cover the full scope of the situation. He/she needs to be aware of certain difficulties with certain models.
How about this: I won't tell you how to answer questions if you don't tell me how to.
Dont you have anything better to do than trying to pick fights with everyone on every thread you post?
This thread you started so far with the OP, The General and jav6454.
Seriously who cares if he didnt word the question right or what the odds and probabilities or whatever you want to argue about etc....
If you have nothing helpfull to post dont bother at all, Im sure everyone is getting sick of your miserable behavior. You seriously need a life......
Does it look like I am telling you how to answer? I merely posted to add something extra, if you like it fine, if you don't, then don't respond. Seriously, this isn;t grade school.
