Thread: Is it safe to upgrade to 3.1 and wait for an unlock ?

    Default Is it safe to upgrade to 3.1 and wait for an unlock ?
    My 3GS is currently bricked @ FW 3.0.

    iTunes only lets me upgrade to the still-locked 3.1 FW.

    My question is: do you guys think it is safe to upgrade to 3.1, have it locked but not bricked (at least) and use my 3GS as a plain iPod?

    I don't care about waiting a few days for the jailbreak+unlock as long as it comes.

    Dev team blog says the new baseband my be locked forever. How true is this, since they were able to break all previous basebands: iCommunity - Jailbreak information at a glance

    I am not an expert but I would say no, if you do not have a valid At&t sim card it probably wont activate and you still be stuck?

    Don't do it, it shouldn't be much longer until the Jailbreak is released. Then, when it is released it'll be safe for you to update.

    If you update now you will loose your unlock, possibly forever. Apple really stripped down the baseband with 3.1, making it much harder to find an exploit.

    Are you guessing, or do you have inside info?

    Well considering the dev team are the ones who have unlocked all the basebands, I would think they would know what they are talking about on their own blog. Makes sense, yeah?
