    Okay, so I am so lost right now, because every post I read is conflicting with the other, and I want a straight forward answer. I have an iPhone 3Gs, version 3.1.3 and baseband 5.12.01. I saw that today the unlock came out, and I was wondering..

    1) What jailbreak program do I use, and does it work with iTunes 9.2 or not? (can you link a guide?)
    2) Can I unlock my 3Gs after I jailbreak it using the method above
    3) If I jailbreak on a windows computer, can I still sync it on my macbook? (That is, if iTunes 9.2 isn't compatible, I have a PC with 9.1, and my mac has 9.2)

    Please be patient with me lol, it's my first time ever doing this, so I am fairly new and don't wanna mess anything up. Thanks!

    U can stay on 3.1.3. And jb with spirit.
    Then install the latest ultrasnow to unlock. Or wait a little bit and then u can jb and unlock the new 4.0 firmware.

    Ahh okay, and I'm leaving the country on Saturday so I don't think i'll wait for 4.0 just yet.

    Anyway, so can anyone provide me with a tutorial, or link or something for the spirit jailbreak? And spirit won't work with 9.2, right? So if I jailbreak on a PC, can I return to syncing on my mac?

    *EDIT: I found this http://spiritjb.com/
    And so I can use a PC to JB, is there a tutorial anywhere that can guide me through this?

    What are you talking about here? if you plan to use spirit to jb 3.1.3 and add Ultrasn0w your fine other wise explain. if you are talking about using spirit to jb 4.0 you are doomed for failure.

    9.2 iTunes might give u problems when syncing with a spirit jb iPhone.
    Try to use and install a previous version of iTunes.

    Okay okay, I found a tutorial and everything. So all my questions are answered, except for 1 thing.

    Okay, my macbook pro has iTunes 9.2. Is there a way to downgrade to 9.1, or am I stuck here? I have a windows laptop with itunes 9.1, so is it possible I can sync my phone there, and jailbreak it using spirit, and then sync it back to my macbook pro with no issues?

    Yes. 9.2 only has a problem if you are going to jailbreak. But if you are already jailbroken, it's fine.

    Just jailbreak with spirit on your 9.1 windows comp, then you'll be fine to sync and do whatever on either computer.
