    Yeap, If you have a 3G, then you can downgrade to 3.0.1 again and jailbreak. I just did.

    Is Apple forcing to update to 3.1 by disabling push for the 3.0.1? does anyone experience similar issue?
    I felt that Apple started to act even worst than M$, tried to reset all settings with hope it can clear everything without having to restore to 3.1, unfortunately it forces me to upgrade to 3.1 by showing the connect to itunes picture....

    for 3Gs owner, beware...hope you didn't ended up like me being forced to upgrade by first getting all of the push services disabled (maybe itunes is deleting my push cert?)..there goes all of my cydia based paid apps

    Default 2 Quick Ultrasn0w Questions
    I have a 3GS (FW 3.0) jailbroken with purplera1n. I also have ultrasn0w as one of my Cydia packages. I was planning to use ultrasn0w this weekend before FW 3.1 released its chaos on the 3GS community. BTW, I'm still using iTunes 8.3.1 (6) and have never even tried to move beyond FW 3.00.

    Quick question #1. Can I safely hit that ultrasn0w button in Cydia and then the Confirm button to unlock my 3GS? I assume I can, but I want to make sure before jumping into a pool of empty water.

    Quick question #2. If the answer to 1 is "yes, it's safe," do I need to have a sim card on board before starting ultrasn0W? If so, does it matter what sim I use? I planned to use a used up Chippie pay-as-you-go card from another country. Would that work or do I need 2 sims?

    Thanks in advance to the only iPhone forum I turn to.

    The answer is a definite maybe.

    If I had a 3Gs I would not do anything, and I mean anything, to it now.

    UltraSn0w should work but some people had problems and if you do the advice is to do a clean restore - you can not do that.

    There is always the possibility of something going wrong when you install anything, usually there is a way round it. At the moment there is no way round on a 3Gs - if something goes wrong you run a very high risk of having to restore to 3.1 with a BB upgrade, in which case it is highly unlikely you will be able to unlock any time soon.

    I would not risk it, or even risk installing anything, until you know you are safe.

    Totally agreed. And wished can just "not do anything".. Unfortunately, for my case, even not doing anything...all of the sudden my push stop working, and when tried to reset things (via Settings), it leads me to connect to iTunes and no other option than upgrade to 3.1....

    May it was Apple strategy to disable the push and force 3Gs to move to 3.1?? i don't know....hopefully not....because if this the case, then its going to be the end of Cydia and its commercial hosted apps? at least until it can be jailbroken again..

    You are not the first to say that Apple seem to have stopped Push on 3.0x
    You should have just lived with it rather than trying to reset anything.

    Try HTC Hero - its android based, just got one because of this problem with my 3Gs. Looks good, fast, jailbreakable and thinkin to move to it permanently. Oops sorry, not the right thread to discuss this

  14. #113
    Yeah, I was also considering buying the HERO but the 3GS won because of the app support. Anyway, wonder if you guys have seen this?

    My 3G S is still on 3.0 jailbroken with Purplera1n and my push is working perfectly. I mean I haven't even had anything push out late, everything has come in perfectly. Maybe I'm just lucky who knows. Anyways there is no way I'm updating to 3.1 before a jailbreak is released because I'll loose all my paid Cydia apps. I can't even get by without my iRealQuickSMS. When I first got my 3Gs it was horrible having to close out of everything I was doing just to reply to a text! Not to mention all the other Cydia apps I paid for that I use on a daily basis.

    Hell I've even gone back to using my 3G just to make sure nothing happens to my 3Gs that will force me to restore before the jailbreak is released for 3.1.

    I agree. If someone could just make a tool to load and install the firmwares without the need of itunes, that would be epic.
