    Anyone not upgraded to 3.1 yet do to 3.1 problems?

    Now that Jailbreaking is ready for the 3G, I'm thinking of upgrading; although, I'm a bit skeptical do to the amount of threads relating to 3.1 problems.

    Is it worth upgrading to 3.1 right now, or should I hold off?

    I haven't yet because I have a 3gs. Even when they do come out with a jailbreak for the 3gs, I don't know if I'll even bother. There isn't anything in 3.1 that entices me to want to go through the whole upgrade/jailbreak process over again.

    no way

    I have 3GS 32GB and its not jailbroken, i don't want to jailbroke it either, but i still keep with 3.0 fearing of the issues that others have been facing with 3.1. I don't want to end up with a brand new 3GS, ending up unresponsive within a week :D

    Not upgrading until the root cause of all of the 3.1 problems is identified.

    Nope, still on 3.0.

    3.1's just not that special.

    Plus I have tethering and MMS. I want to keep that stuff lol.

    I'm on a 3GS so I can't jailbreak yet, but even if I could I think I'll sit this update out. I don't want to do without tethering, since AT&T hasn't even hinted at an official tethering option yet. Not that I'll want to pay for it then anyway.

    I'm on a 3g but I have my jailbroken stuff just how I want it so I'm not upgrading until something useful comes along. 3.1 doesn't improve anything for me.

    Yes I did upgrade, and yes I hate it, My iphone works only when it decides it wants to.

    I havent for 2 reasons.

    1) Too many issues right now.

    2) Some hackers out there believe that the 25th could bring 3.1.1.

    I did on my 3G and didn't find a single problem with it. Battery life was improved even though I haven't had any problems with that recently.

    I downgraded to 3.0 only because I wanted to stay Jailbroken. Since I had already upgraded to 3.1 at one time, the baseband was upgraded. That caused a problem using pwnage with 3.1. It jailbroke the phone but I could not make calls on it so I had to downgrade.

    I have an iPhone 3G and I did upgrade to 3.1. However, it broke tethering and didn't do anything for us if you read the notes. It's all for the 3GS. I hated 3.1 since i didn't have tethering so i successfully downgraded back 3.0.1 and am never going back. In total, it's not worth it.

    Right now I am still on 3.0.1 (for tethering) - however I can't do any development work on it unless I downgrade to 3.0 or upgrade to 3.1. There does not appear to be an SDK lib for 3.0.1.



    :(

    I have a 3G and I have yet to upgrade to 3.1 because of all the problems I've heard about. I'm going to wait for a more stable release.

    I haven't upgraded yet because I'm jailbroken, but even if I weren't I'd probably be a bit hesitant to do so after hearing the horror stories. 3.0.1 is working just fine for me and I have MMS and tethering, so I'm fine with waiting. :)
