    Since I have moved onto an iPhone 4, I have taken out the SIM from my old iPhone 3G as it is of course no longer recognized in the iPhone 3G. Therefore, this iPhone 3G is now essentially an iPod touch with a camera. The iPhone 3G has been Jailbroken with iOS 4.0.1.

    As I attempt to Jailbreak this iPhone 3G with sn0wbreeze 2.0.2 and iOS 4.1, do I still follow the instructions for the iPhone 3G as posted at the link below? But, then how would I deal with Step 6 (Activate the phone)?

    If you're willing to downgrade 3.1.x, you should be able to hacktivate with redsnow. IIRC, 4.0.1 doesn't mess with the baseband, so you should be good.

    Oh, I see. Well, let me think about it.

    iOS 4.1 brings a lot of enhancement to iPhone 3G. So, I need to weigh pros and cons of going back to iOS 3.x.

    Thanks for pointing it out to me!

    Doesn't the latest redsnow hactivate a 3G on 4.1?
    It is Mac only for now though.

    Just wait for the next Pwnagetool and you're ready to go.

    When I still had the 3G and had temporarily upgraded to 4.0, it was slower than molasses. When I sold the phone to a co-worker, I warned her against upgrading to 4.0.1; She took my advice.
    Unless I've missed some development, 4.1 will make your phone stutter.
    If you do have a Mac, then follow Applejuiced's advice. He (she?) is very knowledgeable about all things iPhone and stays abreast on the latest happenings.
