  • 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?

      Certainly not enough for me to risk my jailbreak for these fixes even with a 3GS, I haven't really had any battery issues but I have had apps crashing left & right. Oh well, the price you pay to remain jailbroken.

      When's Apple going to stop wasting their time trying to prevent jailbreaking? They're going to lose either way.

      This is actually good news about the update. I have a 3GS and my battery indicator has not been very accurate for the past week. If the update will fix the issue, I no longer need to think about doing a restore. It's a bug I will deal with until:

      A. 4.0 is released
      B. 3.1.3 jailbreak is available
      C. My devices craps out and I am forced to restore.

      I can also confirm that the new baseband is 5.12.01
      I updated because I don't use JB much, and decided to take the plunge to answer some questions.

      I was able to successfully downgrade to 3.1.2 via Saurik's widely posted methods, then use iRecovery (on Mac, didn't work in Windows) to set the auto-boot to true which took me out of recovery mode. iTunes then successfully activated and I was connected to AT&T (If you unlock, you cannot run blackra1n with hacktivation, it seems the new baseband doesn't connect It will need to be legitimately activated using an AT&T SIM [There's tons of writeups on that, doesn't have to be an iPhone SIM])

      I can say that so far I haven't had the random internet disconnects and signal loss that I did with 3.1.2 (If that's an issue to you). But, I would wait till a legit 3.1.3 Jailbreak + Unlock comes out if you don't use AT&T.

      So, currently I am running 3.1.2 Jailbroken via blackra1n on the 5.12.01 baseband with (so far) no more 3g connection issues. I am an AT&T customer, so this is a practical method for me. For everyone else, stay clear away from 3.1.3!

      Unless you seriously know what you're doing, STAY AWAY!

      (BTW, I used apples 3.1.2 signature, not the SHSH on file with cydia.. although in 2-3 more days you won't be able to do this)
