Apple has been signing the firmware since the 3gs came out....there was no way to downgrade below 3.1.2 before. This is the EXACT same thing that happened with the last 2 firmware releases for the iphone 3gs.
No offense but to be a member of staff and ask "why they didn't do this before" is kind of ridiculous.
Just wanted everyone to know that this is NOTHING new. You can still downgrade as long as you have your ECID and SHSH blobs saved either on file, or on cydia. You need to use umbrella or you can even set up your own restore verification server.
Not that I should be made a mod or anything...
But as long as you have your ECID and SHSH blobs on file with Cydia you are safe. This article basically makes it sound like impending doom, but really Apple has stopped signing every firmware for the 3gs since 3.0
I hope this helps.

This is old news. Nothing new!!!!!!
Edit Poseidon: How many new members do you think we've had since this happened last time? THOUSANDS!!! How many people have purchased iPhones since 3.0 came out? THOUSANDS MORE! Stop thinking inside your tiny tiny little box and think about the community as a whole when making these statements.

guys, guys, guys....
Everyone take a deep breath and relax. We go through this pannic every time Apple pulls this crap. And you know what? ~ Every time Jailbreak comes out on top.
Its just a matter of time. So just be careful with your phones for a while ~ meaning don't do any weird mod that could brick your phone until we get a 3.1.3 jailbreak.
chill out guys

Updated to 3.1.3 on my 2G. No problems. All of those that are fortunate enough to have the newer models, please read the caveats within this thread and in the original article, and then read them again...

We need a comprehensive backup solution for Jail broken phones. I'm scared to install anything in fear that it might brick my phone and I'd be forced to upgrade.

I think Apple did something. Yesterday my iphone 3GS froze so i did a reboot and it was stuck on the apple logo. The only way to fix it was do a restore. Now im at 3.1.3 awesome. Steve Jobs can blow me.

I would honestly not update to this firmware version unless you have no choice. Luckily for me i saved my shsh files on Cydia. So if i have too and i really hope i wont, i can just restore with custom 3.1.1 or 3.1.2

You seem to have missed the point of completely. The 2G and 3G iPhones do not have the problem it is only the 3GS and iPods with serial numbers starting MC that the new security measures have been implemented.
RedSn0w works to JB 3.13 on the 2G and 3G - but not the 3GS. 3G iPhone owners should not upgrade if they want a software unlock as it updates the BB and there is no software unlock for BB 05.12.01
