    How much should an unlocked, jailbroken iPhone 3GS 16GB White go for with the baseband downgraded to 5.13.04? It was manufactured on the 37th week of 2009.

    That is an old bootrom 3Gs. If you include that in the description, you'll be able to sell it for slightly higher than a new bootrom one. Of course, only certain people would know that. Here's why: The old bootrom 3Gs is the only device that will have an untethered jailbreak the day iOS 6 comes out. It will always have an untethered jailbreak no matter the iOS version, verbose boot, and real boot logos. This is because of the 24K pwn flaw within its bootrom. Yes it may be three years old, but some people may want an old bootrom 3Gs. They weren't made for very long, just a few months through the 3G's three/four year production.

    Depends on the current condition (good, fair, like new, etc...) of the phone as well.

    It might be a bit much, but it might get sold. If not you might want to lower the price a bit.

    I think you did. $200 for a three year old cell phone, that's pretty good.

    Yeah $200 is a good price, though you could have probably gotten around $250 with a buy it now.
