To my knowledge its been sitting since dec-jan, my question is I wanna jailbreak it currently when I plug it up I get the connect to iTunes screen from this point what doin I need to do to jailbreak it, I don't know the baseband or current ioS on it I wanted to get some suggestions before just connecting it to iTunes and letting it update any help would be appreciated thanks.
You need to update via iTunes and then you can jailbreak.
If I remember correctly, 4.2.1 is the last update for the 3G.
You can use PwnageTool 4.2
Thanks alot im an android head so im new to this
Its trying to restore and update to 5.1.1 is there another way to update to the firmware you were mentioning.
No, but go ahead and update to 5.1.1, then use How to: Jailbreak iOS 5.1.1 Using Absinthe 2.0 (if it's a 3GS)
