    1. Limera1n is free, you paid for nothing ( you got scammed)

    2. Jailbreak =/= unlock

    3. You can unlock it using ultrasn0w since you are on 4.0.1. ( Search for ultrasn0w in cydia)

    4. Do not update to 4.1 or you will lose the ability to use your phone.

    I dont recommand doing this. Since you cant even make a difference between an unlock and an jailbreak, if you mess this up you will be stuck with a non functionning iphone since your baseband will be locked.

    It seems you don't know that this PwnageTool has the BB update option grayed out, meaning that there is no way the TS could mess up and update his older BB if he uses it...;)

    It seems you are not aware that if he misses (insert 999999 technical problems that can occur) he will be forced to restore using an official .IPSW 4.1----> baseband upgrade.


    My point is:

    -STAY IN 4.0.1
    -Success rate 100%
    -Features you wont have from 4.1 : Game center and other useless stuff :'''(

    1 simple step:

    1-Install ultrasn0w via cydia's search option

    Done

    what? no, if his custom fw got messed up, he just creates a new custom fw and installs it. The actual PT won't update his BB no matter what he does or screws up while creating it...

    If the TS has to use Official Apple 4.1 fw due to a problem, then it will be the same % of error if he tries installing 4.01 or 4.1 fw so your point of view is wrong.

    On 4.1: Besides closing security flaws like the PDF patch w/out having to run an extra MS add-on, Exchange server time is corrected, full Bluetooth now and many other things and the system itself feels more stable besides gamecenter and other things... If you think all of those things are useless then you are not using your iPhone's features.

    Dude.... this guy has no idea what a jailbreak is and what an unlock is.

    My method: 1 step: install ultrasn0w via cydia.

    Yours: He needs a Mac, he needs to download things, needs to do manipulations.. etc etc.

    Got my point now ?
