  • 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?

      Has anyone tried this method- Downgrade iPhone 3.1.3 Baseband 05.12.01 | Redmond Pie

      I'm not sure whether I want to risk bricking my 8gb 3g for my 1 month trip to Europe(6/7-7/8), I'm currently on 5.12.01 and 3.1.3, but according to this guide as long as bootloader is 05.08 it should work to roll back to 04.26.08 then unlock on ultrasn0w.

      My biggest concern is whether I can use my GPS feature(for logging runs with RunTracker) without usage charges or will it count as a data charge?

      As far as calls, I'll probably just use Skype via wi-fi as I'll be calling home once a week or so, so I probably won't need a full unlock.

      Other than SBsettings "free memory" function, and backgrounder, what is the point of jailbreaking if it is not a carrier unlock? Yah, I like winterboard, sbsettings, and backgrounder, but really, the ultimate reason I jailbreak is so I can have service through Tmobile and not AT$T. So answer me, why bother making a jailbreak when it is not a carrier unlock? Seems pointless to me. AT$T sucks donkey ****.

      @geoffreyS why not jailbreak? The possibilities are endless and you can do so much more than with a non-jailbroken device
