    You can upgrade, it's a lot of bug fixes and I did notice that the landscape-portrait rotation ran a lot faster than before. Whatever you do, do not upgrade to 3.1.3

    Sorry, if you have a 3GS you're gonna have to wait until 4.0 is released and jailbroken. Apple stopped ssigning 3GS iPhones that didn't upload their SHSH to cydia. You can only upgrade to 3.1.3 which will update your baseband and prevent unlocking.

    No, to re-install cydia just re-jailbreak using whatever unlock method you used. Just don't upgrade through iTunes. How did you delete cydia in the first place?

    I had an unlocked iphone 3gs 16gb firmware 3.1.2, modem firmware 05.11.07 and it was stolen, so I purchased an iphone 3gs 32gb firmware 3.0, modem firmware 04.26.08. But, when I was doing the sync of my backup, it did sync all my contacts and when it came to my applications it told me it could not sync all my applications because the software on this phone was to old. My question is that the person I bought from says he can upgrade it to a 3.1.2 and that it would be just like what I had, other than the 32gb, can this be done and will it be upgraded? I paid a pretty penny for it and I don't want to go round and round with this guy. All I want is an iphone that will last me. Please help!!!!! Thank you in advance.

    No, like I said, if you're on a 3GS you can only go to 3.1.3. All you can do is try to re jailbreak 3.0 and see if cydia reinstalls.
