I have an I phone 3GS version 3.1.2 (7D11). I bought it new in Nov 09. (no firmware upgrade yet). I have AT&T as my carrier, I used BlackRa1n to jail break, but i experienced many hang issues during internet-tethering, so I had to restore multiple times ( once a week on average) to restore to "original factory setting using Itune) and re-jailbreak using blackRa1n. My last restore was a day before Apple released 3.1.3. I have not done any tethering in fear of my past "hang issue" and subsequent "Restore to original factory setting and involuntary upgrade to 3.1.3 which comes with the restore". I read that it is best to use cydia "make my life easier" full option to save (what ever, ECID,...) as a contingency, but I still have co confirmation from Saurik's server. I see "this device has a pending TSS request" on the top of my cydia home page for a week now. How long does it take to get confirmation? Has something gone wrong? Should I be re-doing the save, and how? Can I be using Ipwnage 3.1.5 to save my current setting? Please advise. Thanks.
