    Hi guys, my dad has the iPhone 3g on 4.0 currently but as we all know it is rather buggy and really slow for the iPhone 3g. I think the updated software revision for the 3g was in 4.1 or 4.0.1. What is the best way to update and jailbreak/unlock his phone? There are so many guides out there and a lot of conflicting advice so I was just hoping someone could help me out here.
    Here is what I have: iPhone 3g on 4.0 that was jailbroken using the spirit jailbreak with ultrasn0w unlock.
    I would like to get the more stable release. My dad has a windows comp but can get access to a Mac if necessary. Thanks!

    Any links to step-by-step guides would be helpful. I understand that redsn0w would not let you unlock. Is that right?

    Thanks in advance!

    You have to wait for pwnage to be updated for 4.1 or else if you upgrade to official 4.1 you will lose the ability to unlock.
