    Well the safest way, in terms of fewest potential problems, is to use Pwnage tool. You need a Mac.

    Quickest way is to go to 3.1.2 and use BlackRa1n. You can do that on Windows as well.

    Note that redsn0w will be out soon, and will be cross-platform (being tested right now). PwnageTool 3.1.4 is also being ported to Win and Lin, but there is no timeline for release.

    Cant Jailbreak 3GS (3.1.2) at all ???

    I have tried with PWNAGE 3.1.4 and i can make modified ipws. And i can get iTunes to start restore with it, but it fails ! After iTunes has "restored" it, iPhone reboots and iTunes say it's in restore mode again. It is dead, and it wont help if i push any buttons... if i restore original ipws, it starts to work again.

    In pwnage (expert mode) there is only few options ?
    1) picture "General" screen
    2) picture "Bootneuter" screen

    I could do this with Blackra1n, but when i installed Winterboard it rebooted .......... and restore again. So that's not a good option.

    Help anyone .

    What do i do wrong ??????????????????????????????? :confused:

    Fix - sort of...

    Blackra1n works for this, if i make it rain twice !

    After first time, iTunes complanes - but making it rain again will jailbreak 3GS.
