3.1 Jailbreak Headquarters Thread
OK y'all looks like the update is about to drop. Let's use this thread as our HQ for all things 3.1 JB.
I'm Soooo excited.
I already grabbed my iBEC and iBSS and my ECID. Hope you have.
- What else do you do to prepare for a update and JB?
- Do you do it all @ one time or do you live with the new update for a few days then JB?
- Will you update right away or are there things you must have to feel good about your iPhone? (mine is 3G Unrestrictor. I must have that app so I do both @ the same time.)
What are y'all hearing about 3.1? Will the JB be out @ the same time or will we all have to wait. I am reading all over that there is an unlock issue since I don't unlock I'm not as concerned, but if you do what are yours?
I have at least 2 programs that don't sync so I'm going to lose data but I guess that isn't that bad. But I hope we get the A2DP remote control profile. I know we won't but I can't wait.

I'm also excited about 3.1 but more excited about the arranging icons from itunes in the new version as rumored if it happens. There are a few threads that ask but I'll answer again. I will stay JB until 3.1 is JB and then upgrade and JB all at once. There aren't enough features in 3.1 that I can't wait. I didn't bother to get 3.0.1
"I have at least 2 programs that don't sync so I'm going to lose data but I guess that isn't that bad." If you're JB why don't you just SSH or use iPhone Explorer to get into your phone and back up the data yourself?? before they made the ability to backup notes I used to backup the db file for notes so I wouldn't lose my notes everytime I did an upgrade.
Geohot and Dev team has advised users to save their iBEC and iBSS Signature Certificates of iPhone OS 3.0 for upcoming Jailbreak tools. The reason being that, Apple has injected a new layer of security, the ECID field to the iPhone 3GS. When iTunes starts the restore process, they contact Apple servers to generate signatures just for your iPhone 3GS. Make sure you get these signatures for your phone before a new version of the software comes out. These signatures are extremely ‘Important’ for future 3GS Jailbreaks for you iPhone.
This site has developed a tool for getting them easier Link. The other way of getting them was so hard I thought I was going to break my phone.

I think there is a way to use SSH to save your txt messages. You can also download the iPhone browser and do it. I use iPhone browser if I use my PC.
I'll do some investigative work on that.
Here is one link so far

What I'm looking forward to is being able to re-arrange my app icons in Itunes. There are other things that are pretty cool but nothing major for me.

I have a 3Gs running 3.0 which I jailbroke using purplera1n when I got it. I never got the IBSS files, never saw the recommendation to do so until now. Can I still do this? I've never done a restore of any kind and I'm afraid now as I've seen people saying they can't downgrade to 3.0/3.01. Does anyone know?
