iPhone 3GS OS 3.1 Pwned? Sorta...
Well, there's a good news for some but bad for others..
First of all, the good news is that according to CPICH - an iPhone DevTeam member - DevTeam has successfully upgraded an iPhone 3GS on OS 3.0, pwned previously, to OS 3.1 without loosing the jailbreak! That's a great news for those who have been desperately waiting to upgrade their 3GS but don't want to sacrifice the jailbreak for it.
However, the solution works ONLY for previously Pwned iPhone 3GS and NOT for the OOTB (out of the box) 3.1 or non-downgradeable ones (in case you didn't capture the iBSS and iBEC files)... This means that if you just bought the device, you're completely out of luck for some more weeks!
This new exploit will definitely be merged into the PwnageTool, which means no luck for Windows peeps as well.
P.S. There is no solution for unlocking the new baseband found in OS 3.1 but you can preserve the unlock while updating the iPhone to OS 3.1, once the jailbreak tools are available publicly.

so if I have a factory unlocked phone that was on 3.0.1 out of the box but didn't get the ECID for 3.0 and have 3.1 ECID on file, can I still do this upgrade to 3.1 without losing the jailbreak?

I would use the umbrella app and get the 3.0 blobs that way you can always downgrade to 3.0
Steroids are yummy

Dude if you have a factory unlocked legit phone then you have no issues too worry about. You can update to OS3.1 and you will be fine, hence the words factory unlocked. Its stored on apples servers so everytime u restore or update it will check to see and unlock it

^ Dude, it's not about unlocking, it's about jailbreaking.

it says "the solution works ONLY for previously Pwned iPhone 3GS"

Will this apply to a jailbroken 3GS running on 3.0.1 also? For clarity, does this mean that if a 3GS phone was previously jailbroken, soon we will be able to upgrade to 3.1 and remain jailbroken?
Is Pwned the same as jailbreaking with Redsn0W?

Either way, it's all jailbreaking. I believe that after the process is done, all jailbroken phones are essentially identical.

So quick question if someone can answer. I am on 3.1 now, but I was on 3.0.1 and had it jailbroken but foolishly restored and updated to 3.1
Does this mean that that I (and others like me) will be ok to jailbreak??
