    Hello all,

    I have spent the past hour looking through the posts and there are a lot of info, too much to be exact. What I am looking for is some basic guidance for what you would recommend doing first, second, and so on. I have a 8gb 3G iphone, version 3.1.3(7E18), firmware 05.12.01 and I have not updated to the 4.0OS and I want to jailbreak it. I have read several posts about the different types of software, redsnow, spirit, etc.. but not sure which one to get or where to get it from. Once I get started, I am pretty computer savy, but there is just way too much info to really get a handly on what to do first or what to look out for, etc... Anything will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Thanks General. I take it the instructions are built into the redsnow software or is there any place to go and get some tips. Anything special to know before I attempt, any special backups, saves, should I remove anything from my phone first,etc... I just don't want to lose anything. Thanks

    Thanks for the info MrThompsonR. I am getting ready to try it all, but wanted to know if there is a particular version of ultrasnow to use in order to unlock the phone.

    General, one question for you. I have read several reports that I should not upgrade to 4.0, but rather stay with the 3.1.3 due to the phone becoming very sluggish. Too late, I have already upgraded. What is all the noise about 4.0? Any ideas on ultrasnow or what particular version? Thanks.
