    Man, I am looking for the same information! Ive been scouring the web but since I dont have any SHSHs backed up I am not sure if we can since apple stopped signing a lot of the firmwares. Please someone help!

    I am assuming that we cannot unlock 4.1 until Pwnage tool with unlock comes out. I think musclenerd tweeted today that they wont release the unlock till 4.2 comes out.

    Also, if you have the newer bootrom, will this provide an untethered jailbreak?

    All 3GS with 3.0 have the old bootrom.

    To OP, use Redsn0w to pwned(accepts custom firmware) JB the 3.0 firmware. Afterward, from now onward, if want to upgrade the firmware, create or search (google) for custom JB firmware (one that keeps the very stable 4.26 baseband). Then, restore with that custom firmware through ITunes.

    Really, I thought that after week 40 they had the new bootrom that was not able to have an untethered jailbreak.

    http://www.iclarified.com/jailbreak/iphone3gs/mac.php?firmware=3.0.0

    Look at the bottom of the page. This from the jailbreak tutorial after I clicked on 3.0 firmware. Is this not the case?

    All the links on that page deals with 3.1.2 / 3.1.3 that's when new bootrom showed up. Seems like link or search feature is wrong. If you can get 3GS with 3.0, they are all old bootrom.
