    Hi to everyone.I am kind of novice I have iPhone 3gs 3.1.3 baseband 05.12.01 and I wanted to update it to 4.3 or 4.2.1 firmware but I never find how could this be done.If someone could tell me in details how to install 4.2.1 firmware on my iphone then unlock it and jailbreak it I would be very grateful.

    iClarified would be a good place to start. Word of warning, upgrading to these firmwares will not allow you to unlock unless you preserve your baseband (05.12.01). You didn't say whether you are a Mac user or Windows user but the link I'll give you has instructions for both.

    Choose the method that works best for you and follow the instructions. I upgraded from iOS 3.1.2 to iOS 4.2.1 using the iClarified instructions for Windows and it worked flawless. I didn't care about the unlock but will unlock if anyone ever comes out with one for the 05.15.04 baseband.

    Good luck and read and follow the instructions carefully!
