Dev-Team: Jailbreakers Beware of iPhone 3.1 Update
Anticipating Apple releasing the iPhone 3.1 update at or following tomorrow's "It's only rock and roll, but we like it" special music event, the Dev-Team has posted a reminder:
Rather, their PwnageTool should allow you to update the firmware without updating the baseband, preserving ultrasn0w for the "best of both worlds".
So, jailbreakers and unlockers, no rushing to out to download that shiny new 3.1 software via iTunes. You've been warned.

MMS update which AT&T will be unlocking on the 25th. I believe...
I like the speed enhancements, improved battery life, and bug fixes. Also other improvements to the rendering engine should improve games. And no doubt you will have to have 3.1 for AT&T mms to work.
It will be interesting to hear comments after Apple releases the update!
It's been working on 3.0 in the UK since it was released, you don't have a different firmware just a different carrier file!
Note that ultrasn0w is the program used to unlock the phone. To jailbreak, use another program called redsn0w.
Only unlocking will be deleted correct?
yes, that is what this article appears to say. However, I believe this is incorrect. I believe you will lose your jailbreak as well. It has been this way for all previous firmware updates. The suggestion is to wait until dev team updates redsnow. Then you can do the update and then re-jailbreak using the updated redsnow. If you use an app like " packagebackup". you can then reinstall all you jailbreak apps " relatively" painlessly.
If you are simply jailbroken and update to 3.1 immediately, you'll lose your jailbreak until the Dev-Team releases an updated toolset.
If you are unlocked, you'll lose your jailbreak and unlock, and may not be able to ever unlock again because the baseband will be updated and who knows if the Dev-Team can/will crack the new baseband, or how long it will take.
Either way, jailbroken or unlocked, wait on the Dev-Team before updating to 3.1 or you may be unhappy for a while...
happy jailbreaker.... Since 2007
You will upgrade the baseband and potentially lose the ability to jailbreak - at least for a while...
I have a 2G iPhone originally use in USA with AT& T as the provider...and I bought the iPhone to use it here in Montreal Canada with another provider (FIDO). After I accepted the upgrade 3.1 it was over...cannot go/see/restore my iPhone...nothing is working. iTunes 9.0 says that the sim card is not valid and that I should insert a sim card from the orignal provider...which I dont have unfortunatly... HELP ME TOO!!
I need your help and thank U so so much .
