Just to verify this, I have NOT updated to 3.1 yet. So if I download 3.1 but don't install it and use PT to create the .ipsw, I should still be able to unlock? I think that is what I understand.

Thanks my friend - Luckily I avoided the 3.1 so far but a friend jumped the gun. he's on 3.1 now and I assume the redsn0w will solve his non-JB issue? he'll be locked but doesn't care about carrier...

Just converted this to the official discussion thread for this jailbreak. I'm going through it right now with my back-up V1 iPhone. It's taking forever to back-up and sync first, though. :(

Have you done this? If so, that's definitely not good news! :D
I decided to wait after seeing numerous posts on the dev team blog and another forum. Apparently, several folks were having issues that were resolved after removing winterboard. Other are saying that it takes several installs, and/or reset to get springboard to stop crashing. While others say SB crashes no matter what.

EDIT: Once again, tis is NOT first hand knowledge, only relaying what others are saying....

Unlock/jailbreak done, now loading some apps.

I haven't been using Winterboard and don't plan to install it, so I should be able to avoid those issues...

Jailbroken, and everything seems to be working fine on my 3G except one thing: The AT&T logo is gone next to the signal bars.

Any ideas as to why that happened?

I'll list the most up to date FW they work with.

redsn0w - jailbreak tool for the V1, 3G, and 3GS on 3.0.1 and available for Mac and PC. Unlocks the V1 as well as jailbreaking it.

Pwnage Tool - Jailbreak tool for the V1 and 3G on 3.1, available for Mac only.

ultrasn0w - Unlock for the 3GS and 3G, available in Cydia, on 3.0.1.

Just wanted to report that the jailbreak/unlock went smoothly and my V1 is working great. Battery life seems to be much better than it was on 3.0 and I'm happy that I can arrange apps on it via iTunes now...
