    What's with the "I told you so"? That's not helpful.

    I'm a little unclear as to how this situation with Cydia having my info on file is going to shake out. Can anyone explain a hypothetical process for 3GS users to jailbreak once the DevTeam works things out? It seems a little recursive since Cydia has the files (or at least the little message at the top of the home screen says it does) but we'll need to jailbreak to access Cydia, correct? I'm just curious since info seems a little vague at this point, but it's idol curiousity since its obviously a moot point until someone manages to release a jailbreak tool for 3.1.

    I'm itching to use the Bluetooth voice control on my daily commute, but its nowhere near worth losing sbsettings et al...

    After the Cydia update yesterday I was gonna go home and get the IBSS and IBEC files using the methods described.

    Glad I didn't get to it, as I may have been stuck upgrading to 3.1 against my will...

    My 3GS will be here today..... Thank god I had my Stepdad jailbreak it and unlock it before he sent it... He even got the IBEC and ECID for me... I just need to be really careful not to screw it up until the jailbreak is released.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish

    Might be a little off topic but I am gonna say it anyways; What about iPod Touch users?

    I upgraded to both iTunes 9 and 3.1.1 last night, and was very worried because the same thing that happened to iTunes 8.2 might happen to 9.0.

    I trust the Dev Team. They will (most of the time) warn you if upgrading (iTunes or firmware) is not safe. Let's just hope that everyone who upgraded is still able to jailbreak.

    Dumb question of the day...

    Where in Cydia do I go to get them the IBEC and IBSS files? When I first got my 3GS I did the manual method of pulling them so I have them locally, but if it's possible to store them in Cydia that would be even better!
