    OK sorry about this guys.

    I have the following

    iPhone 3gs
    Firmware 05-13-04
    iBoot 359.3.2
    version 4.0.1 (8A306)
    Shsh's saved
    iPhone3GS 3.1.3 (7E18)-2912627084662
    iPhone3GS 4.0 (8A293)-2912627084662
    iPhone3GS 4.0.1 (8A306)-2912627084662
    iPhone3GS 4.0.2 (8A400)-2912627084662
    iPhone3GS 4.1 (8B117)-2912627084662 (not sure I understand why this one is here)

    Currently jailbroken with Jailbreakme.com
    and unlocked with Ultrasnow

    What are my options for upgrading to 4.1 and keeping the unlock?
    if it's possible what's the best way?

    I trawled through pages and pages on here and I'm now getting confused as to whether I should be using Greenpoison, limerain, pwnage tool and waiting for 4.2 when I can then start the process of trying to find the right answer all over again :(

    I have a PC but can access a MAC

    your help is always appreciated

    You cannot use limera1n or greenpo1son because they both require you to update through itunes and then jailbreak. You cannot do that if you want to keep the unlockable baseband. Your only option is pwnage tool which will keep the baseband. Hope you have access to a MAC.

    EDIT - You have a 3GS, your only option is Pwnage Tool. The above poster is correct. I thought you had an iPhone 4.

    But if you have a 4 on 4.01 jb'ed with jailbreakme and ultrasnow enabled, and the blobs saved (4.0, 4.01, 4.1) right there on your PC with Tiny Umbrella, you can use TU to upgrade to 4.1 and keep the baseband, right? Then you can jailbreak again with Limera1n or greenpo1son, and restore everything with PkgBackup. Right? Just want to make sure before I do it.

    No. TinyUmbrella works ONLY for the iPhone 4 to preserve the baseband.

    I have previously answered this question but here we go again. You can upgrade and preserve the baseband on the 3GS with pwnage tool. This tool upgrades the firmware to a custom firmware which does not upgrade the baseband. You must have access to a MAC to use pwnage tool. Tiny umbrella does not help you with the 3GS only for ip4 to preserve baseband.

    Thanks for the reply but as you have added more information this time I would argue that youu hadn't previously answered the question fully. I had what I though was a conflicting response from Maverick and so my reply was in response to that. My apologies if you had to do all that typing again....jesus!
