Apple iPhone 3GS 3.1.3 with baseband 05.12.01 unlock/jailbreak – windows

So, like most iphone users, I HAD to get the iphone 4, and was looking to sell my 3GS 32GB, but needed to get it unlocked. This is the method I did, and it worked great, took me 15-20 minutes.

I did this on my laptop, with windows xp pro sp3 32bit. I also wiped my phone completely before this, whit a clean 3.1.3 install. If you are going to do this on a phone you want to keep data, i’d advise backing it up first via itunes.

this method will work for :

* Any iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch on firmware 3.1.2, 3.1.3, or 3.2. Any baseband
* An activated device: one not stuck on the Connect to iTunes or Emergency Call screen.
* Any version of iTunes 9 earlier than 9.2

Pre-reqs:

* iphone 3gs 32gb with 3.1.3 and Baseband 05.12.01 (other phones will work
* itunes 9.1.1 or older : http://filehippo.com/download_itunes_32/7482/
* spirit jb : http://spiritjb.com/win
* working wifi

Step 1 :
If you have itunes 9.2, or newer, you need to uninstall it completely, a reboot wouldn’t hurt afterwards either.

Step 2 :
Install itunes 9.1.1 – or older.

Step 3 :
plug in iphone

Step 4 :
run spiritjb.exe, hit jailbreak, now your phone will reboot

Step 5 :
turn on your wifi, and connect your wifi

Step 6 :
turn OFF 3G

Step 7 :
