  • 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?

      No one has said you can't on your device.

      You can't on your device unless you have your blobs on cydia - and even then you won't be able to unlock.

      Ok.... so first of all, I just registered in order to post on this forum. I am new and unexperienced so please take it easy on me. I am the idiot who upgraded BEFORE vieiwing this post...

      Is it possible to downgrade from 5.12.01? I am one of the idiots who upgraded and did not realize that there may not yet be a crack on Blackra1n for 5.12.01.

      Any ideas?

      If there is nothing I can do, how long till they come out with Blackra1n for 5.12.01?

      Thanks so much!

      BlackRa1n is the Jailbreak which is not dependent on BaseBand. Jou can JB 3.13 using RedSn0w but you can not unlock BB 05.12.01
      If you just want to JB use RedSn0w, if you rely on a software unlock you are out of luck. I do not believe there will be one for this BaseBand.

      First of all, THANK YOU for responding! Secondly, I am a newbie and am not so sure what you mean.... I need the phone to work on all SIM cards with ALL carriers. What will JUST jailbreaking accomplish? I believe I need to unlock as well. What are my options to get this iPhone back to its status of being unlocked and jailbroken?

      Please message me.... or send me an email: [email protected]

      THANKS!

      You want to unlock as well and, like I said, this is not possible now you have updated your BB.
      Unless your carrier will unlock your phone for you, you now have a phone that can only be used on that one carrier for the foreseeable future.

      if u dont have the 5.11 bb then thats why u cant connect..try to get zain to unlock it..I know they can cause people down here have bought their iPhone downtown or in Dubai with the sim unlock but they have the tethered jb on theirs..kinda sucks

      UPDATE: I followed the snowbreeze update and now my phone is back up and running like a champ and bb is still 5.11 ^_^

      How does it work.... are there people all over who are trying to crack things and they come out? In your experience, how long do you estimate it to be? In truth, I wanted to sell this phone. I have a couple unsellable (for now) 16GB lying around. I am tempted to just swap out the logic boards and fix the other one when the crack comes out. Will a new Logicboard with the old bb work?

      Thanks!

      There is no rush on an unlock solution for this baseband. Apple will change the baseband again in a few short months so no body will be working on an unlock for this.

      I agree. Nobody is even working on an unlock. They will wait for the next iPhone

      I have a noob question. I have a 3gs unlocked and jailbroken running 3.1.2 on 05.11.07 baseband. I used blackra1n and blacksnow. I did not backup my SHSH with cydia. Can i still jailbreak with blackra1n if the battery dies? Can I ever log onto itunes again or will it force a 3.1.3 upgrade. Thanks.

      iTunes does not force an update, you have to specifically accept it.
      You are fine to run BlackRa1n and synch to iTunes.
      Just hope you never have to restore though because if you do you will have to restore to 3.13 and will lose your JB and unlock.
      Why didn't you let cydia grab your files?

      So what do people in my situation do?

      By the way, will switching logic boards solve the problem?

      Is RedSn0w going to come out with a solution.... I know I am not the only one with this problem.

      Thanks!

      People were warned not to update. as Geohot put it:
      I hear rumors going around that the 3.1.3 jailbreak is hard. It isn't. But the only people it helps are those dumb enough to upgrade. Sorry.
