    iPhone 3Gs previously jailbroken and unlocked. I think I have correctly installed the pwnage, although upon closer examination (natually after the fact) the directions here- technobuzz.net/jailbreak-iphone-3gs-3-1-pwnagetool-3-1-3 are done using the "Expert Mode", while I used the one most fitting for me, "Simple".

    After going through the process as directed by the pwnage download and restoring my phone, looking at my iTunes screen it says my phone is running 3.0 and an update is available. For the moment I chose not to do anything further and checked the status of the phone; still jailbroke and unlocked with no problems using ATT or my Telcel chips.

    Do I download the update from iTunes or from somewhere else, or is it already updated by what I've done and just not being recognized by iTunes?

    Thanks for any help and feel free to throw any abuse or condescending post my way as I doubt I don't deserve it.

    was ur phone previously broken with 3.0? it sounds like you may have used the wrong firmware to pwn. I would try the process again, and make sure that you are using the correct firmware. Maybe try a different link.

    Those directions you listed are correct...thats how I jailbroke 3 different 3GS's....I used simple mode like you did.

    Further inspection reveals that I've done something right (or aleast done something), in that when logged onto Cydia "This device has a 3.1 ECDI SHSH on file" reads near the top of the screen.

    So has my phone been updated to 3.1, or is it now set so that I can update via iTunes without worry of losing jailbreak and unlock?

    Neither. It just means your ECDI is on file with Cydia so in case you update you can roll back if necessary.

    You still need to actually update your phone. What the pwnage tool has done is created a custom ipsw file. You update the phone using iTunes, but have to point it towards the pwned file that the tool created when you do so by holding "Option" while clicking "Restore" in iTunes.

    Here's a link to a full video tutorial on the process.
