    Hey guys, I have been scouring the web and everything is quite confusing.

    I would like to jailbreak an iPhone 3Gs and make it usable on any network. Currently it is locked on Orange, but I am on a different network.

    Could someone just point me in the direction of an up-to-date guide on how to do this. I see a lot of talk about changing basebands, then jailbreaking, then unlocking etc etc.

    I am not too worried whether it is tethered/untethered, and my iPhone is currently up-to-date on 6.0.1.

    Thanks.

    P.S Dont know if these are needed but first 5 numbers of serial - 86951. First 2 letter of model MC. Also my baseband currently 05.16.07

    Also, I found this guide which seems fairly comprehensive, can anyone tell me if it is worthy of following? http://www.beijingiphonerepair.com/...d-5-16-07-to-5-13-04-for-unlocking/#idc-cover

    It depends if you can use the manual; do you have your hashes/blobs for 6.0 or 5.1.1?

    I recommend you try to buy an IMEI unlock online, it's a permanent solution and does not require a jailbreak

    I do not no.

    And any recomended sites that aren't asking me to take out a mortgage?

    If you don't have blobs, you can't downgrade the firmware and are stuck on 6.01.

    At present there is no jailbreak possible on 6.01, although a solution will be provided rather quickly i suppose because of the limera1n exploit.

    There is an ungoing thread in the top ten on IMEI unlocking, check it out

    Apple still signs 4.1 on 3GS. So, you can down grade it to that firmware without blobs.
