iPhone update Firmware 3.1.3 JAILBREAKERS DO NOT UPGRADE!

Do not upgrade to Firmware version 3.1.3 yet – There is no access to Rock, Cydia or Icy.

This warning applies to owners of

  • 3GS
  • iPod Touch 3
  • iPod touch 2 with serial *MC*
  • Any 3G unlockers

iPhone OS 3.1.3 is now out from Apple. Suuposedly it fixes some battery issues. There are no new features. The release only stops jailbreaks.

Currently there is no jailbreak for this firmware. Unofficial sources have confirmed that they have patched up the method 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.

Unlockers – You cannot unlock the new baseband. This would 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 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 summarise:
- 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 the new baseband.

Update from Geohot - I hear rumors going around that the 3.1.3 jailbreak is hard. It isn't. But the only people it helps are those dumb enough to upgrade. Sorry.geohot

DevTeam Update:

Update 1:  [Don’t go near this if you have 3GS, newer ipt2G, or any ipt3G] Thanks to daring experimenters in the DevTeam comments, we can confirm that yesterday’s redsn0w works for today’s 3.1.3 update for iPhone 2G.  Just point it at the 3.1.2 iPhone 2G IPSW after doing update or restore to 3.1.3.  So far we’ve only confirmed this for iPhone 2G.  (Note that if this does work for iPhone 3G too, you can *only* use it if you don’t care about the unlock.)

Update 2: [Don’t go near this if you have 3GS, newer ipt2G, or any ipt3G] Can confirm that this method works for iPhone 3G and iPod touch 1G too.  Don’t do it for iPhone 3G if you need an unlock though (really, don’t!). For older iPod touch 2G, we’ll need a small (1-character) change in redsn0w source.

Update 3: [Don’t go near this if you have 3GS, newer ipt2G, or any ipt3G] For those with older (non-MC) iPod touch 2G, we’ve compiled a special version of redsn0w meant just for you: Mac and Windows.  You guys can get in on the “3.1.2 loophole” too using this special version.  Don’t try this if you have a newer iPod Touch 2G or if you’re not completely sure what version you have.  And of course don’t try it for 3GS or ipt3G either.

That about does it for the 3.1.2 redsn0w loophole.  Ultrasn0w/yellowsn0w/blacksn0w users shouldn’t go near it.  Otherwise, it can be used by owners of iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G (not unlockers!), iPod 1G, and iPod 2G older version.  Everyone else please wait for official support in the tools.
