A friend wants to jailbreak her phone but she's on 3.1.3....she doesn't want tethered. Would jailbreakme.com work on her 3.1.3. phone or is there some other method of easily JB'ing it?

tia!

If she has SHSH's saved for 4.3.3, upgrade to that firmware and jailbreak using Redsn0w or Sn0wbreeze or Jailbreakme 3.0.
3.1.3 is a really old outdated firmware. A vast majority of applications will not work with unless you update your firmware.

She's never JB'd her phone before so she has no saved SHSH....wouldn't the spiritjb still work for her?

She's trying to get Opera as her default browser and she said she has to be jb'd to make that happen...she hates safari for some reason.

I think Spirit still works. Her only options are 3.1.3 and 4.3.5. Is that the only reason she wants to jailbreak? If so, she could just update to 4.3.5 and install Opera or stay on 3.1.3 and use Atomic Browser.

Is there a way to make Opera or Atomic the default browser to open? She's under the impression she can only do that if she's JB'd...she likes Opera a lot better than Safari.

If you know, lemme know, then I'll tell her and take all the credit :) el-oh-el...jk.

After a little googling, seems you need Browser Changer to change your default browser. I told her about SpiritJB but told her I ain't responsible if it mucks up her phone.
