    Hi.. im still skeptical on using tethered jaibreak right now...

    can somebody advise me on jailbreaking my iphone 3gs... it still is running ios5... i want to upgrade it to the final iOS 6.1.3 ... but i dont know which jailbreak can create custom IPSW cause i need to preserve baseband... i still need this phone as my car iPod...

    ive read about snowbreeze but its tethered.. should i wait for it to create untetherd? is it stable already? please help me with suggestions... thank you

    Make the custom 6.1.3 ipsw using sn0wbreeze

    Jailbreak it tethered. Once jailbroken, open cydia and install p0sixspwn and that will make your jailbreak untethered

    I am trying to figure out the relationship between wanting to retain the existing baseband and using the phone as Car Ipod.

    There is only on reason why it is useful to retain baseband and that is for unlocking the phone with Ultrasn0w. If you are not an Ultrasn0w unlocker then forget about the baseband.

    is sn0wbreeze stable?

    True that.. but nonetheless its still important to preserve the baseband.... so that it can still be used a phone.. though now more like an ipod..

    you need to remove the gs.apple.com from your host file to restore with the custom ipsw for 6.1.3

    make sure the device is in pwned DFU mode and that your itunes is 11.0.5 or older
