On on a j/b'd 3GS running 3.0 now. Are these the steps for getting to jailbroken 3.1?

1. Download a custom 3.1 .ipsw that's been jailbroken (since I'm on Windows).
2. Do SHIFT + Update in Itunes to install it.
3. Done?

How about some of the things I've seen/read about certain apps like cydia/winterboard not quite working on this version yet?

Thanks!

Yes i do... I have a 32gb 3gs running JB'd 3.0 right now would love to move up to JB'd 3.1 but i dont have a mac..
I'm in the same pickle.. no mac so no JB 3.1 yet.

If you get it, and everything works well... make sure to post something. I'm anxious for 3.1.

How is cydia treating your phone?
Cydia is working great. My phone was totally wiped after the install...I mean totally. It kinda pissed me off cause the original jailbreak didn't do that. So I was in Cydia and AppStore all night getting all my stuff back.

Awesome. At least you were able to get everything back and working. Could I get a copy of your .ipsw too?

Thanks!
