Jailbroken? Don’t Update to 3.1.3!!

Gudday. I know is been awhile since I have posted anything, but work commitments have kept me busy.

I thought the following taken from ‘The Rock’ app’s home page was pretty important for those of you who have jailbroken or want to jailbreak your iPhones……..

This warning applies to owners of
iPod touch 3
iPod touch 2 with serial *MC*
Any 3g unlockers

iPhone OS 3.1.3 is now out from Apple. Supposedly it fixes some battery issues. (Doesn’t every release make things faster and fix battery problems?) There are no new features. The release only stops jailbreaks. That’s right. No new features.


Currently there is no jailbreak for this firmware. Unofficial sources have confirmed that they have patched up the method we used to jailbreak 3.1.2 so you will not be able to jailbreak. If you update you will lose all your jailbreak apps and will not be able to get them back. In other words, updating means you lose a lot of stuff in return for almost nothing back. In addition, there is no ETA on a jailbreak for 3.1.3. It may never be jailbroken. It is likely that they (dev team, geohot) will not waste another hole on 3.1.3. They will most likely hold it for the bigger update that will come with the release of the iPad and iPhone 4.0.
Unlockers – you cannot unlock the new baseband. This woudl apply to those 3g users that can jailbreak 3g. If you update, you will not be able to unlock.

One more thing, as of right now, Apple is still signing 3.1.2 for you 3gs users but no one knows for how much longer they will be. Make sure you *rush* into Cydia or Rock and get your keys signed on the front page if you have not. This will make certain you can always restore 3.1.2 even in the future using Saurik’s server.

To summarize:
– Update adds NO NEW FEATURES, do not update.
– Update kills your jailbreak. Do not update.
– Get your 3gs 3.1.2 keys signed by Cydia/Rock now if you haven’t.
– Unlock does not work on new baseband.
