  • iPhone OS 3.1.3 Released - Jailbreakers & Unlockers: Do *NOT* Update!


    This goes without saying really, but I'm going to say it anyways as a friendly reminder. DO NOT UPDATE TO FIRMWARE 3.1.3 IF YOU ARE JAILBROKEN! It is not safe yet to do so if you want to remained jailbroken and unlocked. This advice comes straight from the DevTeam via Twitter. If your silly enough to upgrade, I've got bad news...you can no longer restore to 3.1.2 unless you have your SHSH on file in cydia.

    There may or may not be a jailbreak for 3.1.3 - the dev team will most likely wait until the major release coming for iPad and iPhone 4.0. GO TO CYDIA NOW and get your keys signed on the front page if you have not. That way you'll always at least be able to restore to 3.1.2.

    While we all like updates, this one is really nothing special and doesn't make it worthy of losing jailbreak just for it. The update includes a fix for the iPhone 3GS battery level reporting (I've never noticed any problems), a fix for app that crashed on launch (Haha really? ) and a fix for app crashes while using Japanese Kana Keyboard.

    Additional security fixes are included in this update, and can be read in more detail here: About the security content of iPhone OS 3.1.3 and iPhone OS 3.1.3 for iPod touch

    So all in all, nothing new here. My question is... When in gods name will we get 4.0? Do we have to wait till the iPad is released or what?

      Well I have a duh moment. After i did the update, that's when I saw all the buzz on the net. After the upgrade to 3.1.3, everythign was gone and offcoarse they updated the firmware to 5.12.01 . At first blackra1n didnt work, but then I did a restore.

      REstore was also a headache..had to hunt for a suitable file. Found one at http://www.chrissimpson.net/iPhone/directions.pdf . After restore, I was able to jailbreak with blackra1n , but now phone is locked. It says "Waiting for activation" . I am wondering if after I activate, if I can then do the unlock with sn0w. But I am stuck on how to activate the phone. Dont want to go thru the restoral again, that took me a couple of hours to get right because it kept erroring out.

      Any ideas??

      And can anyone answer my question?

      Activate the phone officially uses original carrier' simcard, just insert then connect with a computer with iTunes.

      Other way to pass through: jailbreak your phone with Redsn0w 0.9.4 (Iphone 3.1.3) or Blackra1n (Iphone 3.1.2 or lower). This will not work with 3Gs.


      There is impossible to unlock the phone with 05.12.01 at this moment. Have to wait until new method release.

      RedSn0w 0.94 is ONLY for the iPod Touch 2G with serial numbers starting MB.

      The correct version for the iPhone is 0.92 or the beta 0.93 for tethering.

      RedSn0w 0.94 is NOT ONLY for the iPod Touch 2G, it also works with IPHONE 3G (just upgraded few today) Screens are included.







      Also, official Redsn0w 0.9.4 has been released, ask Google

      Read this link : How to Backup Cydia Apps while Changing iPhone Firmware in iTunes [AptBackup] | iLikeMyiPhone

      It might help you to store a list of apps have installed on your phone, not actual the apps.

      Google says a lot of things.I certainly would not use 0.94 which is for the iPod Touch 2g only on an iPhone.

      The correct place to get information on RedSn0w is Dev-Team Blog

      If it has worked for you, great. But it is not designed for, or supported on anything other than the iPod Touch 2G.

      Or maybe I should just rely on Google when I need answers.....

      So I guess most of us are just waiting for a workaround/fix. I'm sure there will be one within a few days.
