  • 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 used cydia it asked you if you wanted it to make your life easier. Did you say no?

      I couldn't understand how cydia wouldn't have your files.
      See Caching Apple's Signature Server - Jay Freeman (saurik) read and follow the instructions.

      If you did, cydia has your files. If you didn't you are screwed.

      OK.. remember earlier I said my phone froze and then got stuck in boot then magically loaded up...well now it did it again and because I dont know how it loaded up last time I'm lost

      I tried to restore my phone with 3.1.2ipsw I have downloaded..I do the shift+r thing and it extracts it then comes the fun part, itunes says my phone is ineligible etc..

      How do I restore my phone without it verifying ipsw?

      one of my friends said he doesnt even go online when he does it so what am I missing because when I close my connection itunes wont even attempt to restore

      unfortunately, I just purchased an iphone 3G 16GB from someone on craigslist. Well actually traded a laptop for it. I didnt think it would be that big of a deal that he unlocked it to AT&T on 3.1.3 well it looks like I was wrong. I currently have an iPhone (1st generation) that works fine, so I figured worse case scenario I could wait... Well now it looks like I will be waiting a long time since 3.1.3 isnt a "worthy" enough of an update for the dev team to tackle. I still am running an old version of itunes, and have never JB/UL a 3G on this PC. Do I still have a chance of possibly downgrading the firmware? Do I have any options at this point besides waiting? Thanks in advance!!!

      If the BB has been upgraded to 05.12.01 then that's the reason the previous owner sold it. There is unlikely to be an unlock for this BB.

      There still other ways to downgrade your phone back to 3.1.2.

      Before doing that, please confirm you are having an Iphone 3G 16Gb (not 3Gs) then go to Settings to see if the Model is not start with MC.... Then we'll discuss further

      Why is everyone saying that you can't go back to 3.1.2, I just did it on my iPod Touch 2G.
