    I have a 2 month old iPhone 3GS with iboot-359.3.x that can not be unlocked. I can jailbreak it, which I have done and have the SHSH stored locally and on Cydia. I want to sell it to help subsidize a new one but I'm afraid a jailbroken iPhone will be significantly less than an unlocked iPhone

    Any thoughts on what I might be able to sell it for and if I should wait for the iPhone dev team to unlock the 3GS iboot-359.3.2?

    Thanks.

    As I understand the iPhone 3GS with iboot-359.3.2 is unlockable. It can only be jailbroken to 3.1.3 and I believe that's only using spirit as pwnage 4.0.1 doesn't jailbreak them either.

    Interesting as that site states my iPhone 3GS with firmware 5.13.4 and iboot-359.3.2 can't even be jailbroken. I jailbroke it once using spirit so I know it can be done. Unlocking for iboot-359.3.2 hasn't happened (yet).

    Unfortunately I know my iPhone with iboot-359.3.2 can not be unlocked as the only method to jailbreak it is with spirit and you can't get iOS4 on my phone pwned with spirit for some odd reason.

    Jailbreak it with Spirit and use ultrasn0w. It CAN be unlocked. I have the same iBoot as you and my is unlocked and jailbroken using Spirit.

    You're kidding?! OMG that's awesome. I've spent three nights up till 3 am trying, researching, etc. and from what I read and tried I could not get it to work. Do you mind asking me how you did it?

    And thank you!

    ...and just to make sure here's the exact info on my iPhone:
    16 GB iPhone 3GS
    05.13.04 FW
    iboot-359.3.2
    Currently running iOS4.0 with bootloader 6.4

    Also, I used "f0recast" to check it out and this is what I get:

    Serial #: XXXXX
    Baseband: 05.13.04
    Bootloader: 6.4
    Model: MB716

    Jailbreakable: Yes (don't upgrade)
    Unlockable: No
    Untethered: Depends if it's refurbished

    I put 3.1.3 on to my iPhone 3Gs, jailbroke using Spirit on a computer that does not have iTunes 9.2 installed, got Cydia running and entered the repo for ultrasn0w [repo666.ultrasn0w.com], installed ultrasn0w, put in my own SIM and away I went.

    Hmmm, I've got iTunes 9.2 on my Snow Leopard drive on my Mac Pro, but I don't think I updated Windows 7 to 9.2. Spirit runs in Windows so I could boot into Windows 7, jailbreak to 3.1.3 with spirit then use untrasn0w. I'll give it a go.

    If you are on 4.0 now, and need to downgrade to 3.1.3, you will need to have your SHSHs signed. Without them, there is no way you can downgrade.
    Also, when downgrading, you will hit error 1015, without a doubt. There are a few tricks to bypass this method, so post back when you get there.

    There have been conflicting reports that 9.2 is only a problem on windows so I would save myself the trouble, if I were you, and just do it on the windows PC.

    Yes, you can unlock as long as you're JB any baseband thats been out from the 3.0 to the 4.0 firmware days.
    As long as you're JB just install ultrasnow and you're good.

    Have my SHSH file locally and on Cydia for 3.1.3. Just followed this guide to get 3.1.3 on my 3GS:

    http://www.sinfuliphone.com/showthread.php?t=12965

    Basically I blocked Apple's server from confirming 3.1.3 for my iPhone using terminal and editing the etc/hosts file. Downgraded to 3.1.3, reopened the connection to Apple's servers. So my iPhone is on 3.1.3.

    Should I use Spirit to jailbreak it and then add ultrasn0w to the repo?


    Yeah I used iRecovery before, just used rslite now and I'm all set. Just deciding what I should use to jailbreak. Is Pwnage possible? Or should I just stick with Spirit?

    In the end I'll have an unlocked 3GS 3.1.3. It's better than an unlocked iPhone. :)

    And thanks for all your help!

    Ok. I tried to use Spirit but it bricked my iPhone. The Apple logo was stuck on the screen although iTunes recognized it as an iPhone with 3.1.3. I restored 3.1.3 but I have the sense that iTunes 9.2 is the culprit. I have 9.1.1, should I install it on another account and go from there or can you downgrade iTunes without messing up 9.2?

    Try installing the previous itunes built on another user account.
    Once you're done restoring and activating officially your iphone shut down itunes and itunes helper process if its running in the back and run spirit.

    BINGO! Created another user account, moved iTunes.app into a temp folder, installed 9.1.1, jailbroke with Spirit, and got Cydia running.

    Thanks again! :D

    If I uninstall iTunes 9.2 on another account and install 9.1.1, will that affect iTunes on my primary account, or is that the whole point of the redirect? I just need to JB my 3GS before I sell it tomorrow, then I plan to go back to 9.2 with my i4 so I don't want to do anything permanent...

    Could you give a little more detail on what I need to move in order to rollback on another user account and not affect 9.2 on my main account? Cheers.

    No need to uninstall. On OS 10.6.4, I created a new admin user account. In that account I downloaded iTunes 9.1.1. Then I simply moved my iTunes.app from my Macintosh HD/Applications folder into a temporary folder and installed iTunes 9.1.1. After jailbreaking my 3GS, I deleted the iTunes 9.1.1 from the Applications folder, moved the iTunes 9.2 application back, logged into my normal account, opened iTunes and everything is right where it should be.

    Remember to back everything up with "Time Machine" just to be safe. Hope this helps and good luck.

    Thanks for the quick reply, so this process can be followed pretty much the same way on a PC? (lame, I know :) )

    Try following this tutorial for Windows:

    Tutorial to downgrading iTunes 9.2 to 9.1.1 (PC version)

    Here's a link to older versions of iTunes (including 64-bit versions) for Windows:

    Old Versions of iTunes

    Honestly, the tutorial alters your main user account. I simply created another admin account in OS X instead of messing with my main user account. I would believe that doing the same for Windows would make sense, but the file structure differs such that perhaps following that tutorial would be a safer bet.
