Some people are still getting older FW - others are saying Apple won't let you pout of the store without installing the latest FW. I guess it depends on if you are lucky or not.He who asks a question looks foolish for 5 minutes. He who doesn't ask a question remains foolish forever.

Do NOT restore afterward. The devteam has yet to release tools for 3GS without cydia "on files".
So don't screw up you're phone after jailbreak and/or unlock
It's interesting people are saying apple won't let them out of the store without installing FW... I was fairly positive that geniuses couldn't do an in-store restore/upgrade.
Now you would obviously need to go to your appointment with 3.1 FW installed, but the only thing apple would do after handing you the refurb is a soft activation.

Any idea were to download the restore file for 3.1 for windows?

If you just want to update to 3.1 you can just hit update in iTunes. Or the files are available from the download section on this site.

How can they force you to upgrade your software? Last time I checked, I am the customer. Tell them tough !@*$. I know telling them you don't have your SIM or you are using your SIM in another phone temporarily may stop them from forcing the issue too.

How can they force you to update? They can't. But on the 3GS they can stop you loading anything but the latest FW if you have to restore (unless you have your signed files)
BTW - you're not really still on 3.0 Beta 4 are you?

You can't tether in 3.1 unless your carrier supports it.

3.1 jailbreak will be out soon enough, although it might be permanantly locked but i dont care i have AT&T anyway i just wanna jailbreak my damn phone to get my sick iElegance PRO theme back damn

I'm using Addition's iPhone Modem 3 for tethering, works just fine. I thought the $10 was well worth not having to deal with the hassle of ATT / Apple. Just my two pennies...

You can use pwnage on a Mac to JB
RedSn0w for 3.1 has not yet been released.
You can not now unlock but obviously you don't need to.

After having to restore to 3.1 (missed the ECID message on Cydia), I had no idea what to do. I actually was having issues with the 3G signal or bad internal antenna, called Apple and they made an appointment on the Apple Store here in Atlanta, went there and they looked at it, decided to give a new one, and guess what, it was 3.0.1! woohoo!, which by the way doesn't have the issues I was having. Went home, got it going with redsn0w, JB again, I am a happy man again . To my surprise, when Cydia was installed, gave me the "Make my life easier" button, clicked and now I'm back jailbroken and Cydia has my 3.1 ECID SSHS on file, nice because I missed it the first time, thank you Cydia!

friend have they released redsnow for os3.1, if you have link to download let me know. thanks in advance. Because when i updated from 3.0 to 3.1 i lost cydia and all the applications.

still patiently waiting for a 3gs jailbreak... i hadnt jailbroken my 3gs yet and didnt even think about what i was doing when i did the 3.1 update... dont care anything about unlocking but not having my themes is bugging the crap out of me.
