search google for blackra1n, this is the jailbreak (and also includes the unlock (blacksn0w)) for 3.1.2, the latest iPhone software :thumbsup:

Would i need to update the software through itunes first to get the 3.2 software? also this of course will remove the unlock and jailbreak on my phone and so was wondering what step would i need to take after the update as i only have a vodafone sim in it

thanks

yeah update through iTunes (backing everything up first), and setup as a new iPhone (restore) - you will lose everything on the phone not backed up - it is recommended to start fresh when jailbreaking and unlocking).
i think you will need an o2 sim (assuming it was originally on o2) to activate it after updating.

After updating, go to http://blackra1n.com/ and download blackra1n.exe.

Run it with the iPhone connected via USB, and follow messages on screen of PC

iPhone will reboot, and you will have a new icon on the home screen - blackra1n. It is now jailbroken!

Run blackra1n on the iPhone, and you will get a menu with 3 choices - Cydia, Rock and Blacksn0w - install either Cydia or Rock (OR BOTH) and blacksn0w to get your unlock! Reboot with vodafone sim in and everything should be fine!

You dont need an O2 sim - Just jailbreak without any sim and just put it in once done....

You dont need to access main homescreen before jailbreak...
For 3.1.2 (The Latest Update)

Update,
Remove the sim,
Keep Connected to usb,
Run Blackra1n,
Click 'Make It ra1n',
wait for it to be complete,
once finished in sert the sim,
click the blackr1n icon and select what ever programmes you want installed...

yep,

once blackra1n has jailbroken the iphone it will leave an icon called blackra1n...
Then connect to the internet...
Click the blackra1n icon and wait for it to show the options of what to install...
select cydia and wait for install....

Then it should be installed correctly...
