    1. The jailbreak method for 3.1.2 is pwnage, which is mac only. However, what that means is that a mac is needed to build a custom jailbroken firmware ipsw-file. Once you have that file, you need iTunes to install it, which can be either iTunes-mac or iTunes-Windows.

    There's a thread going already that helps Windows users to find and download custom ipsw-files. Check it out: See point 3 below as well.

    Once you have a custom-made ipsw, head over to the iClarified site, find the tutorial for jailbreaking the 3GS phone with pwnage on a mac, and follow it from the point AFTER pwnage tool builds the ipsw file for you - ie the point where you put your phone into recovery mode and connect to iTunes.

    2. Back up your phone before you start point 1 above

    3. No, you won't find info on that here. However, harking back to question 1, there's a site where you can buy official App Store apps for the same price as on the App Store, and it's a useful site for solving your first question.

    4. Come back and ask again once you've jailbroken successfully and I'm sure you'll get lots of help

    There are many free apps, some of them cost a couple of bucks. Piracy is one of the main reasons Apple is trying to stop jailbreaking. Don't be a douche, pay for the apps you use.

    That depends on what you want to do. Themes are WinterBoard, toggles are SBSettings. Its really up to you, just read the boards and pay attention.
