    Best Practices once jailbroken:

    • Turn off the iTunes check for updates option as it is all too easy to accidentally upgrade and lose unlock.
    • Use pwnagetool/custom ipsw to shift-click restore in iTunes to a newer iPhone OS version. (it is option-click restore on OS X)
    • Never use the "update" button in iTunes, this will always remove your jailbreak and disable your unlock (maybe permanently). Even if you can later re-jailbreak and unlock again, you waste disk space due to orphaned files.


    In your case, because you have baseband 05.11.07 and are being prompted to upgrade to OS 3.1.2 you would not permanently lose your unlock by updating.

    It is still recommended that you perform the upgrade via PwnageTool/custom ipsw. This is the cleanest way to stay jailbroken and upgrade. You will need to reinstall blacksn0w afterwards to stay unlocked.
