    Used for a day and JB'ed 3G works fine. Usually the devteam will post something if there's a problem but nothing posted

    Supposedly Apple has included some kind of mod into 8.2.1 to prevent a phone from being JB with 8.2.1 (as I have read, that's what I understood) Pretty sure I read this on MuscleNerd's twitter (member of Dev_Team)

    Apparently, if your phone is JB already, no issue, but posters have reported if you want to JB with 3.1, do not install 8.2.1.

    Seems far fetched to me however ??

    Doesnt make sense because if you update you wont be jailbroken anymore anyways and will have to redo it. Either way, ill stick with 8.2 and hope 3.1 makes my phone able to backup again in iTunes.

    I went ahead and updated iTunes to 8.2.1 and was concerned with the JB, but as I said earlier, I was able to JB w/o issues. Fastest JB I've ever experienced...:cool::cool::cool:

    Jailbreaking is becoming as seamless as most Mac operations! I did this with iTunes 8.2.1 and redsn0w 0.8 on my 3G S running 3.0.

    Jailbroken in less than 10 minutes!!

    can you confirm whether uploading custom carrier bundles works with 8.2.1 (defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE)

    Why would updating your iTunes affect your already JB iPhone? It doesn't make sense. If you haven't JB then the new update of iTunes 'might' not let you JB. Moreover, if you did update your iTunes and can't JB then you can just uninstall it then install a version of iTunes that allows you to JB. It just seems stupid asking this question.

    Yes. I know it won't. I was trying to use common sense to answer the original question of this thread.

    You need to read this thread, iTunes has nothing to do with the Cydia problem.

    Cydia crashing

    Very much doubt the two are related. Many are having Cydia crashing problems. Nothing to do with iTunes.
