    I always get confused by the firmware, bootrom, etc. in this thread so I figuered I should just ask.

    I'm using an UNLOCKED iphone 2G on T-Mo for now.

    A friend of mine is going to sell me his 3GS so he can upgrade to iPhone4.

    He is all up to date on AT&T with iOS4 and everything just like he should be all updated.

    When will I be able to unlock the 3GS for use on T-Mo? Is it already possible or do I have to wait for the redsnOw update?

    There is no hurry at all I just want to be sure it will be possible! Thanks!

    At the iPhone hacks section.
    You should be able to jb and unlock a 3GS on 4.0 soon.
    I'd say go ahead and get it.

    Are my thoughts correct?

    My friend, who I'm buying a 3GS from has updated his phone yesterday with 4.0 for use on AT&T, not jailbroken, never been jailbroken or unlocked.

    I am wanting to unlock for use on T-Mobile

    Pwnage Tool 4.0 will not work on this correct?

    I have to wait for the update of redsnOw to be able to jailbreak and unlock the 3GS correct?

    pwnagetool 4 won't work if the 3gs has the new iboot. You may however jailbreak it at 3.1.3 and unlock it with the ultrasnow

    So I have 3.1.3, new iboot, and jailbroke with Spirit, so basically I'm pretty much screwed and won't be able to upgrade to 4.0 and jailbreak, right?
