    True you can live without the compass but damn that speed will be missed if i was in your shoes. i couldn't possibly downgrade to the slower 3G model.

    Default deserving punishment
    in defense uf us ignorami, some of us had newly puchased the used iphone when all this first came down. I update most things and knew as soon as i hit that button that i had fupped duck.Thanks to those of you that are making things happen.I check every day,sometimes twice. We're dieing out here.

(I understand it's different for people buying from eBay, but the "accidentally updated" people are just ridiculous.)

    As for untethered, I'm sure we'll see it once the iPhone G4 rolls around.
    Some people were forced to upgrade to 3.1.3. They maybe had a bad install or bad crash and phone is stuck in dfu then they had to go with official 3.1.3 to restore to at least get a working phone.

    Of course if they have their shsh on file they could try to go back to 3.1.2 but that seems to have mixed results.

    Aaah, people smarter than me and half my age talking about things I don't understand...

    So why are there only a handful of people that know how to do this? 'Cause there's no money in it?

    ^ sorry, I believe your wrong, If you do not have the SHSH on file, you can not downgrade, Apple is not signing 3.1.2 for the 3Gs phones.

    I wish it was that easy. when using itunes your restore to firmware has to be signed by apple or it wont let you restore.
    Apple isn't signing 3.1.2 anymore.

    You probably don't realize this, but Geohot has been tinkering with other toys for the past few months and really hasnt showed any interest with messing with the iPhone since blackra1n. Never say never....

    Downgrading on the iPhone 2g and 3G is not a problem, however it will be difficult to download the baseband on the 3G if you do not have the 5.08 bootloader. The 3GS is the device that requires a signed ipsw. If you do not have your ECID SHSH backed up for the previous firmwares, you are not downgrading.

    The reason an untethered jailbreak hasn't been released is because the exploit is being saved for the iPad and iPhone 4. The exploit(s) are there and it is hoped that they will remain there. As far as this BB exploit from geohot and the dev team goes, the earliest they would release it would be when 3.2 drops later next month with the iPad.

    From what they've been talking about greenpois0n; they are planning to release it in June with the new iPhone. Releasing it in March could cause Apple to patch it up in that few months time and ruin the exploit. I would personally much rather have the community be able to survive after the new iPhone come out instead of being stuck where we are for months without a ability to find a jailbreak.
    Also, does anybody know if Geohot talking with DevTeam involves Chronic Dev at all?

    In the UK O2 will unlock your phone for free if you are on a pay monthly contract. You just apply online and you get a text within 14 days which tells you to place another providers sim in your phone and connect to iTunes. This then unlocks the phone and installs new carrier bundles. If you are on PAYG you have to have had the phone 1year and pay 15.

    O2 started this the day the exclusivity ended in the UK. I applied that day and was unlocked within 2 weeks. Only had the phone 3 months.

    A BB exploit (if one / many exist) is for unlock - nothing to do with tethered/untethered.

    Unless, of course, I have totally misunderstood things?

    ^ I'm talking about two different exploits. The BB one is for unlocking. The other one will allow for a untethered jailbreak. So I mean that both the exploits will be saved

    And then he pissed and moaned about people complaining that his methods were hacky and flaky. He releases things that aren't finished and then gets baffled why people want his flaky methods fixed. I gave him a donation for the work he did on the 3GS jailbreak and I realize he doesn't have to do this for free or continue to do it, but he shouldn't be such a douche about people wanting him to fix his halfass methods. Dev Team rarely release something that doesn't work straight away and when they do they immediately fix it. They don't piss and moan and tell people that gave them money to go pound sand when they want a fix for it.
