I am thinking about jailbreaking my iPhone so i can use a sim card from abroad in it.
I have some quick Questions
1. is this the correct website: Dev-Team Blog
2. is this the correct download: PwnageTool_3.1.4.dmg (download torrent) - TPB
3. How will this work with backing up my phone. Everyday i plug it in to backup will anything change? Also if i need to remove the software i can restore the settings in iTunes. Can i then restore a backup to the phone that was taken from a jail broken one?
PS: i am using iPhone 3g with the latest frimware. Running iTunes on Mac OS X 10.6
iCommunity - Jailbreak information at a glance lists some information and links on the matter.
Thanks, i would particularly like to know about the backups.

Make sure that you get the correct firmware. It is not always the same version as you are currently on e.g. 3.0.1 crack was actually still 3.0.0 cracked firmware etc. As I said in prev post. Check out Dinozambas on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/user/Dinozambas

B: Restore a backup on a none jailbroken onto a jailbroken
ie the backups can be restored both ways?
also i cam using Iphone OS: 3.1.2 will this jailbreak?
Im currently on my phone so will look at the videos later, thanks allot
A thing to note about Iphones is that they have in effect two partitions one for OS and one for your data.
The OS one is jailed and data isn't so jailbreaking in effect makes the OS one writeable and adds in new firmware that allows stuff to be installed in the jailed area.
So data partition is not touched in jail break process.
Reading good book at moment on how to conduct forensics on an IPhone. The basis of jail breaking are used for this. As if your conducting forensics on Iphone it means you can jail break an Iphone with out breaking any user evidence. Also amazing what information is kept on the phone..
Would be nice if had spare Iphone to try stuff out but not brave enough to do it on my own Phone.
You can restore a JB image onto a Non JB phone if you wanted to reverse it, all applications will be there, but they won't work. Only applications that are legitimate will work, the others will fail to load.
Thanks guys. I am off to bed now will give it a go when i get chance, will post results.
whats the book called and where do I get if from (.pdf??)??

Reason being is that i am in Australia so 3G will cost a bomb and i have no WIFI here.
Also do you have to do something else to allow any sim?

Really interesting and also an eye opener to what Iphone stores (and also your itunes) an example is that if you click home button while an app is open then it takes a screenshot so that phone can do fancy effects on reopening an app..
Yes, download the .app files and then simply drag them into iTunes \ Applications and Sync.

To jailbreak and unlock any current iPhone on 3.1.2 (Latest) use blackra1n it will JB it in under 30 seconds (Mac and PC)... I've used it loads since it been released.
Then install Cydia from the blackra1n app... You now need to install blacksn0w to unlock the baseband. To do this do the following...
1. Open Cydia and install new source by going to Manage menu. The source URL for the blacksn0w is blackweather
2. Search for the Blacksn0w app. Click Install Button
3. Confirm installation
4. Wait for installation process to finish
5. After installation make sure to reboot your iPhone in order for unlock to take effect.
