    Default Do NOT update to FW3.1, nor to iTunes 9

    here are the new features of Firmware 3.1
    Apple - iPhone - New features in the iPhone 3.1 Software Update.

    There is only one new feature that barely interests me, as a 3G iPhone user.
    1. Claimed faster wifi speed

    Almost every other new feature has to do with making it easier to spend money at the Apple Store, apps, ringtones, mobile me..

    Then theres one new feature that would benefit me if I had a 3GS
    1. Use Voice Control on iPhone 3GS with Bluetooth headsets

    So far Dev Team has posted that FW 3.1 can be used with Pwnage Tool, but it is now clear they mean AFTER they release a new version of Pwnage Tool, which is NOT available yet.

    Also, there is no current tutorial on iClarified.com to use FW 3.1.

    My suggestion is to do nothing until there is an iClarified tutorial for FW 3.1, and that is IF you think there is ANY good reason to update. Im not sure there is.

    Furthermore, using FW 3.1 REQUIRES updating to iTunes 9.0, and again, Im not sure if there will be any new problems with iPhone Unlocking with iTunes 9.0. At least one person has posted on Dev Team Blog, claiming iTunes 9.0 does not like Redsn0w, meaning (unconfirmed yet, but why risk it), that if you update iTunes, you lose your ability to jailbreak with Redsn0w.

    My recommendations are
    1. Do NOT update your iPhone firmware to 3.1
    2. Do NOT update iTunes to version 9

    Wait until Dev Team releases a new version of Pwnage Tool to unlock FW3.1

    And Wait for a few guinea pigs here to confirm if iTunes 9 works to unlock with the Pwnage Tool

    if youre already jailbroken and everything itunes 9 wont mess with you, but it will delete any firmware file thats not 3.1 that itunes has downloaded in the past

    but as far as updating to 3.1.... DONT DO IT YET
    Get the latest info for NoAccSplash Here
    Currently it should work on iOS 4.x - 6.x
    If you'd like to help extend its functionality, the source is also available.

    by the way, people should read the original source material, not just my opinions
    Dev-Team Blog

    > if youre already jailbroken and everything itunes 9 wont mess with you, but it will delete any firmware file thats not 3.1 that itunes has downloaded in the past

    that IS messing with me, I will NOT go to iTunes 9, because I will LOSE the ability to jailbreak.

    That means even if I have an unlocked iPhone, which I do, Im on Tmobile USA, if I EVER need to restore my firmware, I will end up with a LOCKED iPhone

    now, I do keep my own copies of FW, and not in the iTunes folder, and not downloaded by iTunes, I use the links at iClarified.com to source my Firmware Versions, and I save them in the same folder as whatever the current jailbreak and unlock tools are in use with that Firmware

    and maybe or maybe not, could I fool iTunes 9 into letting Redsn0w use the FW 3.0 IPSW

    but all that is way too much technobbabble

    I just will NOT update to iTunes 9 (until Dev Team releases Pwnage 3.1 and other guinea pigs here say it works), so none of the above technobabble about jailbreak redsnow unlock ultrasnow baseband bbbbabble, will matter..

    Why are you posting about your 3G in the 2G section?

    I think it was more a general feeling about 3.1 across all devices but seeing the OP has a 3G I've moved it

    Staying on iTunes 8 won't get you anything. iTunes 9 deletes old ipsw's for a good reason. There is no posibilty of downgrading nor restoring to any firmware below 3.1 because Apple just stopped signing those firmwarefiles.

    Saurik posted on his twitterfeed that he may come up with a solution for this, let's see...
    iPhone 3G 16GB 3.1.2 Black T-Mobile D
    iPhone 2G 8GB 3.1.2 Vodafone.de
    MacBook Pro 15" Early '08 2,4Ghz

    So far I've had no issues with iTunes 9 and my jailbroken 3G running 3.0.1 OS... I can still tether via PDANet just like before, I still have all of my other jailbroken goodness... and I keep my downloaded firmware files in a different folder so I haven't lost any of those. Now just waiting on the jailbreak...
