    I'm so tired of the waits for a JB after an update. Don't get me wrong I'm so in love with the Dev Team but gosh I wanna play with the new 3.1.1 when it hits Friday.

    I've had about 3 vodka drinks tonight so i'm pretty weak right now. Plus I have shut down my lappy and new netbook and I'm posting this from my 3gs.

    The only reason I JB is for 3g restrictor. Now that I have my netbook I really don't need to JB. So really nothing is holding me back from upgrading to 3.1. But man will I miss the freedom. I am so torn, what should I do. I made it so far I know they will release a JB soon after the 3.1.1 drops but how soon? I don't know if I can hang on.

    Looking for peer support

    i'm taste testing vodkas which is pretty cool. So I'm not like depressed and drinking over this issue. Rofl

    The only two things that continue to make me JB is to have my picture on homescreen as well as lockscreen and to be able to turn off networks. So if you can find things you can only do JBen then wait if you just want the ability then the choice is yours. I was just wondering yesterday now that I just JB when the next update was coming? Unless it deals with the battery issue I seem to have now I doubt I'll be in a rush to upgrade.

    Tired of waiting for what? My phone to get all buggy from 3.1? There are no new features that are even tempting.

    im happy with my jb 3g on 3.0.1 nothing is enticing me to upgrade to this 3.1
    i already have mms, tethering and everything else i could need. something has to really be breakthrough (i.e. i must have it) for me to go any further

    no way, i would hate my phone if it wasn't jailbroken. SBSettings is amazing, and all the little things like 5 icon dock, 5 rows for apps, snapture, cycorder. I just bought some package that lets you reply to text messages from inside of app. sooo nice

    My only concern is whether or not I'll be able to get MMS without updating to 3.1. The actual features that came out for 3.1 itself were pretty weak, but I want to be able to send pics.

    And HELL YES I'm sick of waiting. I have a 3g, not 3gs, but I have a PC. I can't believe it's taking them this long to just come out with a Windows version. It usually only takes them a couple of days after the Mac version is figured out.

    What really, really pisses me off is that I have an old Mac notebook that works and I'd be able to update to 3.1 and jailbreak, but my wife "cleaned" and lost the damn power cord, so I can't even turn the Mac on anymore. My Mac is now officially a paperweight.

    Obee1 you will be able to MMS fine with 3.0.1 from what I've read, there is a thread a few levels up that has the answer you seek. Now when you do the 3.1 JB doesn't it clean out your Iphone? so don't you have any friends with a Mac that you can have JB your phone? Is there anyway to buy a replacement power cord for your Mac? ebay? online?

    The main thing about 3.1 that had me drooling was re-arranging the homescreen within iTunes and damn do I love it

    There's no need to be a ***** about it.

    Some people use their phones excessively for MANY reasons. I'm one such person. I refuse to upgrade beause if I "upgraded", it would be a major downgrade for me and the things my phone can do.

    Some people actually use it for the functionality, not jar the pretty little Winterboard themes to make them LOOK pimped.

    If this was someone you knew IRL, and try were torn between a decision that was apparently important to them, would you be this insensitive to them too?

    I doubt it.

    I guess my point was. The jailbreak has been out for a while now. What is the problem? What are you tired of waiting for? It's here now, go and get it. Jailbreak and enjoy. We had to wait, what, a whole week after 3.1 came out before the jailbreak was released. That's not long at all.

    And like others have said, 3.1 is no major breakthrough. I did enjoy the app moving ability withing iTunes, but I'm having more phone radio problems than ever before...problems switching from 3g to Edge and back and forth.

    Sorry to add my 2cents. I was and I guess I'm still confused what the complaints about the waits were for.

    He's concerned about the jailbreak for the 3G S not the iPhone 3G. There is no jailbreak for the iPhone 3G S yet for the firmware 3.1.

    I think on their priorities that they listed the second priority was to come up with a jailbreak for 3GS models. A windows software was about third or fourth on the list.

    Ah, as I look back at his first post he does say he was typing on a 3GS. I guess his post and title weren't entirely clear. Sorry.

    Obviously the dev team have nothing to gain by delaying the jailbreak, I'm sure they are working on it as hard as possible. It is a cat and mouse game...and with the 3GS Apple has upped the game and it is much more difficult to jailbreak.

    And like I've said...there is nothing in 3.1 to get all upset about. I went from 3.0 to 3.1 and so far my phone is more buggy. I'd go back to 3.0 but I'm too lazy to spend the afternoon re-doing my phone.

    If you have an iPhone 3G/3Gs and want to have MMS texting and internet tethering on it do the following...does not have to be jailbroken and will not hurt it if you are.

    1.First, open Command Prompt on your PC from the 'accessories' tab...copy this string there...(you have to right click and paste into the CMD line as CTRL V wont work...you also cannot just type it in, it has to be pasted)...

    1aCopy and Paste this:
    "%ProgramFiles%\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    2.Then go here and download this file to your desktop...you have to unzip it first. This is the ATT_US.ipcc file. download it and unzip it to your desktop
    LinkBucks.com - Get your share!

    3.Open iTunes, click your device and summary. hold Shift for PC(Option button for Mac) and the click on Update.

    4. When the popup window opens go to the dropdown box that you can choose your file type (it is set to look for an ipsw file by default). Change it to look for carrier update file .ipcc.

    5.Browse to the one you just downloaded (on desktop). click on Open(or double click it). it will update on your iPhone.

    6. When it is done, reboot your iphone (hold down power until it cycles off and then turn back on).

    7. Go to Messages. You should now have the camera icon by the enter text box and you can send pics via texts.

    8.Tethering will also be available in Settings, General, Network...turn it on and you can use your phone as a modem...

    My daughter has a MAC. I assume I could use her machine to JB my 3G. Would this mess up her iTunes library? Would I just re-sync my 3G post JB on my computer to get back my iTunes?

    I think if you open a guest account on her computer you would be fine. I know on a pc u can have more than one account such as guest. I'm not sure if a Mac does that, probably does though. So if you can open guest account and install iTunes there and do what you will this way you won't mess her stuff up. Hope this was a little help
