  • 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?

      If you have a 1st Gen iPhone the SHSH is irrelevant to you.

      Ok, I read through and didn't see anything about factory unlocked iPhones, and you all have helped me in the past, so I am posting up to help anyone out there in my situation.

      I updated my factory unlocked 3GS to 3.1.3. Went fine and everything works, but it was different than all the other firmware updates in the past.

      Usually, when I would update my firmware, iTunes would let my iPhone reboot and when it came back on line the main screen in iTunes would say something like "Congratulations, your iPhone has been unlocked." Today, it just acted like I plugged my iPhone in fresh without having done an update.

      Just food for thought.

      /Also, I don't jailbreak so can't help you there.

      First change your host:
      open the file C:WindowsSystem32driversetchosts and add the following entry to the bottom of the file.

      74.208.10.249 gs.apple.com

      Performing the Restore

      Now, one would have hoped that the process would be as easy as "restore using the 3.0 IPSW". If only we were that lucky. The first problem is that a downgrade from 3.1 to 3.0 must be initiated in DFU mode.

      So, we begin: hold down the lock and menu buttons (some call these the power and home buttons) for 10 seconds, letting go of the lock button but continuing to hold menu until iTunes recognizes the device with the message: "iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. You must restore this iPhone before it can be used with iTunes.".

      Note that, at this point, your iPhone's screen should be entirely black. Many people confuse "DFU" with "recovery" (and in fact, iTunes itself glosses over this), but they are quite different. If you see anything on your screen, such as the iTunes logo and a sync cable, or a cartoon of Steve Jobs swearing in Cyrillic, you are in recovery mode and need to try again. One can find videos online that may help.

      At this point, you should do a "normal" restore to the 3.0 software. When doing this, remember to hold down the option key (on Mac OS X) or the shift key (Windows) while clicking the Restore button in iTunes. Select the firmware (which is probably named iPhone2,1_3.0_7A341_Restore.ipsw), and things should be on their way.

      This was taken from Saurik's site. Its old info and thats why its explaining the 3.0 fw. Make sure you choose your 3.1.2 FW while restoring your phone and make sure you put it in DFU mode before you restore.

      Hope this helps and good luck!

      Where would I get 3.1.2 FW?

      When you restore to new firmware you have to activate again - that's when you get the unlocked message. If you just update your FW you don't have to re-activate and hence don't get the message.

      Have you tried looking in the download section? Under Firmware?

      Not sure why you'd want to but with an original iPhone you cam downgrade, the BB hasn't changed so you can still unlock and pretty much do what you want.

      Hi guys, this is my first post...and not a good one unfortunately :/

      I accidently updated to 3.1.3 (READ: Stupidly) and now I've lost all my Rock/Cydia stuff and apps.

      I used Redsn0w (cos I have a 1g Ipod Touch) and it works, and so I got really excited. Unfortunately, it said done, but my Ipod didn't reboot/go to lockscreen! Does anyone have any advise on how the hell to fix this?

      Any help is much appreciated,

      Thanks,

      Shiv
