    I have great battery life on my 3GS with 3.1.2 - are there any other "features" I would miss out on by sticking with 3.1.2? I've never jailbroken, but it's nice to know I have the option... so I plan on sticking with 3.1.2 unless there is a good reason not to.

    I don't know about the features per se, but 3.1.3 is already jailbroken:)

    OK cool - so I guess that's one less reason to avoid upgrading.

    DO listen to this guy. See this thread for further details:

    And no, there really aren't any new features in 3.1.3. Supposedly it fixes an issue with battery meter accuracy, but it's hardly an earth-shattering upgrade, and definitely not worth giving up a jailbreak for.

    No, a 3GS on 3.1.3 cannot be jailbroken. A 3GS already jailbroken On an earlier firmware can be upgraded using PwnageTool without losing it's jailbreak. Those are very different things. Furthermore, 3GSes with the new bootrom cannot even be upgraded with PwnageTool.

    Why would you want to do that? If you have your SHSHs on file in Cydia you can go to 3.1.2 jailbroken.

    And no, you will have to reinstall your jailbreak apps. I suggest PkgBackup.

    No major updates to the OS, some bug fixes and minor tweeks.

    yah but once on 3.1.3 and if you didnt have you hashes you cant get back the jailbreak. this gut never jailbroke and your telling him that if he upgraded he can still jailbreak which is NOT true.

    Thanks for the info. I am definitely going to stick with 3.1.2. If it ain't broke, don't fix it!
