    Alright, so i have an unlocked (and jailbroken) iphone 3gs on ios 4.1. I just got it today, and when i go to the appstore to search apps, nothing comes up. in fact, the appstore is completely barren? can anybody tell me what the problem is and how i may be able to fix it?

    Did you try turning it off and on?

    All jokes aside, I was having the same issue with my ipad, I guess it's because of ios 7. After a while it worked perfectly fine. I'm sure yours as well.

    yeah, i started tinkering with it, and after an hour or so of just messing around, things are all working nicely again.

    3GS? I think it might be time for an upgrade. What the point of install apps when most of them won't even run smoothly.

    You would be surprised actually :P

    Though I would update that 3GS to 5.1.1 or something and then Jailbreak it

    alright guys. Thanks for the help. now i have a second question. As it currently stands, my phone is unlocked via ultrasn0w (or something of the sort) and it is on the old bootroom. Now if i was to update the phone to its final firmware (6.1.3) would it keep the unlock? If it helps any, i'm with telus.

    that doesnt really answer my question. but i agree that ios 5 is better for a 3gs. the problem is forcing it to update to it. i dont think itunes will let me

    Oh yea you would not have backup tickets, hem well I'd say mod the update to preserve your baseband and you should be OK just check that 6.1.3 is jailbreak capable

    Before anything, download "tinyumbrella" to check for available SHSHes (firmwares you can go to).
    Once you've found and downloaded your desired update, download redsn0w and process the firmware file by removing it's "Baseband".
    Once done, download sn0wbreez to attach the SHSH (acquired from tinyumbrella) into the newly produced update file for easier and less frustrating update process.
