    Hi,

    I'm from Brazil and i bought my iphone at ebay, so I don't know if it's factory unlocked. I checked at cydia and I didn't find any source/app related to unlock, like blacksn0w, redsn0w and others.
    My iphone is the MB046LL with firmware 05.11.07 and I'd like to know what I have to do to update to iOS 4.
    Can i simply restore my iphone from itunes then update to iOS 4 and after that do the jailbreak? What's the problem with this procedure?
    I can't understand when you say that first we have to update to iOS 4 then install Cydia, I mean, after update it, won't it be locked? so how can I access cydia!?

    Thanks

    Don't I have to worry about firmware and boot loader versions. Downgrade to something... and all this stuff?!

    thanks

    No, thats just for 3GS models.
    When it comes to 3G iphones its alot simpler :)

    Plug it to itunes and click update.
    And let it go thru and update your iphone 3G to 4.0.

    Thats all.

    do you know how to discover what unlock method was used?
    remember that there is nothing related to unlock in cydia.
