  1. are you sure this works? I dont want to take a chance and unlock my iphone 3gs (currently running 3.1.3) and find out i’m screwed after updating it to 4.2. The phone is originally with telus, and i’m with rogers, so i need to be assured this is 100% before i go to itunes and click update

  2. I have a jailbroken Iphone 3gs with ios 4.1 and baseband 06.15.00.I want to update my ios to 4.2.1..Can that be done ? if yes, how ?
