    model 3Gs
    version 4.3.1(8G4)
    carrier AT&T 10.0
    model firmware: 05.13.04

    I understood that I can do an untethered JB with my device, because of the old bb...

    1. If I update to 5, do I need to use a special procedure or I can update from iTunes and then run redsnow?
    2. Is the unlock possible yet with iOS 5 for my phone?

    thanks in advance!

    1. You NEED to create a custom firmware with redsn0w to preserve your "Model Firmware" (only available on Mac, use sn0wbreeze if you have Windows). Do NOT just update through iTunes or you may possibly permanently lose ability to unlock.
    2. Not yet. It's said that the update will come today though. I updated to iOS5 early and I'm waiting for ultrasn0w and Mobile Substrate to be updated for iOS5.

    You can only do untethered JB with your 3GS if you have an old BOOTROM, not Baseband (BB)/Model Firmware.

    Ultrasn0w will not work with the baseband you have on your phone. For Iphone 4, the only baseband Ultrasn0w will work is 01.59.

    Yes, Ultrasn0w work with your baseband. Look at my other thread with listing of basebands Ultrasn0w work on them.

    The dev team isn't exactly motivated. They lost their main unlocker and apple has come out with an unlocked phone. If you really need an unlock, perhaps you should consider saving up and investing in an unlocked phone.
