    I successfully used yellowsn0w on my 16GB 3G and now am jailbroken and unlocked on T-Mobile with everything working great.

    Currently on OS 2.2 with baseband 02.28 /

    Would like to get the new features in OS 3.0 but staying unlocked is paramount!

    Is this the "BEST" path to a 3.0 unlock?
    1.) upgrade itunes from 8.1.1 to 8.2?
    2.) let itunes upgrade me to 3.0 (and likely re-lock my phone)
    3.) use redsn0w to jailbrake 3.0
    4.) use ultrasn0w to unlock 3.0

    I'm assuming there is no direct path to a 3.0 unlock from my current 2.2 unlock without the steps I've mentioned above?

    Thanks....

    Do exactly as you have described above. Numbers 1-4 in that order. If you happen to encounter any problems, post back with questions.

    yeah u got the steps in the exact order needed to upgrade and unlock, mine was the same 2.2 FW on ATT prepaid though, just a little tricky cuz ATT tried to block Gophone customers data plan working but there is a workaround:D

    Thanks... all done! No sweat!!!

    Everything working great on T-Mobile ///

    First I did upgrade iTunes to the latest 8.2, using my TMO SIM throughout.

    Used redsn0w (on Win/XP) with the "How To" directions from the iClarified site to jailbreak 3.0

    Then used ultrasn0w (also using the "How To" directions from iClarified's site) to unlock.

    This community is really REALLY amazing at helping each other out - WOW :D

    Thanks to the DevTeam, iClarified and many more various & sundry folks. You all rock :p
