    This might seem like a strange Q, but does the SIM have to be in the iPhone 3G when jailbreaking as per above?
    Keep getting error 1601 during step 10.
    Thankfully easy fixed by holding home & power button for 15-20 secs.

    if you have a iphone 3gs with the fourth and the fifth number higher then fourty then you have a tethered jailbreak.
    if your serial nummer is = xxx40xxxxxxxxxx then you have a tethered jailbreak.
