Basically these are my options.

1. put my phone back in its box and don't use it. hope something comes out that'll let me fix the blackra1n boot loop.


2. restore and upgrade (since 3.1.3 is all that's on file with saurik) to 3.1.3 and hope that a 3.1.3 jailbreak comes out?

you can see what's going on with my phone in this thread.
