    This is my first post in here so i am sorry if something goes wrong..

    I would like to ask few questions about how to jailbreak my new yesterday bought iPhone 3GS 16 gb.
    1) First: I havent opend the package yet so it needs to be connected to computer, should i do it or what ? i am not sure if it install new official firmware and does not allow jailbreaking?

    2) Can i use Apples Appstore on my iPhone as with i have heard called '' Cydia ''
    3) And can i get 3rd Party applications on iPhone if i jailbreak it?
    4) Can i remove the jailbreak from iPhone and restore it to original if something goes wrong?

    1) Turn on your phone (I assume thats what you mean) and go to Setting -> General -> About and look for version. If its 3.1.2 your in luck. By plugging it into your computer you will not be forced to upgrade to 3.1.3 unless it is in DFU mode.

    2) Yes. AppStore and Cydia will be on your phone ONCE jailbroken

    3) Yes. Thats the point, isnt it?

    4) Yes. There is always a way to go back

    ### EDIT ### Just read that you said it was still packaged so iTunes might try to force you to upgrade. If it gives you the option to not, then dont. If it forces you, then your going to have to sit tight till another exploit is released.

    Umm i have read that first time when you want to open your iPhone you most connect it to the computer and in to iTunes for sync? So does the iTunes make the newest firmware on your iPhone? I havent synced it on iTunes or computer yet so what i most do in this to jailbreak?

    No, updating your firmware is optional. Apple cannot force you to do something against your will, since its your device now, not theirs anymore.

    This is not true; they could enforce mandatory upgrades before activation. They don't, but they could.
