  • 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?

      It is fake. Since the site is made up as a iPhone site most ad places just use a feed that puts ads gear'd to the sites. Sometimes you get ads that lead to false sites.

      With a 2G it's not a problem. Just run RedSn0w 0.92 and use the 3.12 ipsw and you can JB and unlock your 2G iPhone on FW 3.13

      Whatever happened to "once jailbroken, always jailbroken"? I remember a while back that the dev team said something to that effect. I forget what firmware it was. But I do remember that once you jb, you would always be able to.

      Unless your phone is one of the very first 3G iPhones (week 28 of 2008) you can not unlock. You can JB using RedSn0w but you can't downgrade your BaseBand so can not unlock.

      Once you have JB using RedSn0w you can check your s/no and if the 3rd, 4th and 5th digits are 828 you are OK - if later then you can't downgrade.

      I have a 6 day old iPhone 3GS on firmware 3.1.3, with baseband 05.12.01 on an MC model. I guess I'm not going to be jailbreaking my phone anytime soon?

      I just had a question.
      I want to get a new iphone and currently am on 3.0 FW.
      Can I get the new iphone and jailbreak it? Is it possible?
      Can I re-jailbreak my jailbroken phone?
      Reason I want the new one is because my battery sucks but
      also I need a restore really bad and could live with
      a new jailbreak to keep 3.0 goto 1.2 or 1.3.

      Without knowing what sort of phones people are asking about it is very difficult to answer.

      A 3G can be JB on any FW released so far using RedSn0w, but if you want to unlock you have to upgrade using pwnage to preserve your BB.

      being a very new and novice user, am afraid of taking any step. last one was to unknowingly upgrade to 3.1.3 for which i am still
      mine is 3GS 16gb (serial #4,5 are 4,3) and i face same problem of non-recognized sim and usb - itunes logo doesnt go (was unlocked sometime back by my brother). being at 3.1.3, is it possible just to jailbreak and use it as an ipod touch? i know the unlock is not available, but will redsn0w work for me?

      thanks in advance

      Where are you going to get the new iphone?

      If it is from carrier your probality going to get a 3gs with 3.1.3 firmware and new boot rom, just my opinion

      If you buy from ebay and the seller says unlocked just ask him the firmware and bb so you will know! Also the 4 and 5 digits or the serial! If he is selling saying it is unlocked he knows what the phone is going to be used for! If it is unlocked and firmware is at 3.1.3 Pwnage will jailbreak and you should be able to use any sim!

      Circuit City has 3gs for sale and it says they are unlocked! Cost a arm and both legs! 3gs 16 was about $800 and 32 was $1000! Thats a lot of money!

      Please describe the " the battery sucks "

      Unfortunately the 3GS on the new iBoot can not be JB on 3.13 at the moment.
      Can you borrow a SIM from the carier it's locked too? If so you can at least activate it so you can use as an iPod until the next FW is unlocked.

      I got screwed on this one. I have an older 3g (old enough to be out of wty) I am repairing that was on 2.2.1 and had to be upgraded for the apps to work on 3.x so I had to restore it to 3.1.3 since it had never been on 3.x and has no hashes. Now I have the new baseband on the 3g phone and can't unlock it for the guy, just jailbreak.

      No way around that one! Had to do it.

      I would get my new phone from Apple from my warranty, its always refurbished.
      My battery life basically dies everyday and if its idling, maybe a day and a half.
      I can live without getting a new phone for a while and just redo my current phone.
      I don't care one bit about unlocking, all I want to do is re-Jailbreak my 3G (Currently on 3.0 JB).
      My phone is really begging for a restore, can't even copy and paste lol.
      Can I do this?
      If so, how would I go about doing this?
