    First delete your 3.1 ipsw so there is zero chance you will update by accident.

    i knew this would happen!, Apple will force any 3GS to go UN-Jailbroken if they want MMS!

    I hope theres a work around cause i wont update to 3.1 till theres a JB...

    I knew this would happen too. We need to wait for the 5.5 carrier file to become downloadle from someewhere then go to DOS and type "C:
    \Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1 to allow us to update the carrier file through Itunes

    For macs, go to Terminal and type in
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.iTunes carrier-testing -bool TRUE
    
    Then it's possible to upgrade by ipcc files.

    I lost MMS when I updated my 2g to 3.1... However, I found that my phone is much more responsive on 3.1 so the loss of mms was negligible....

    If you have 3.01 phone you should just use activate mms you can download it from CYdia

    "C:\Program Files\iTunes\iTunes.exe" /setPrefInt carrier-testing 1

    your saying thats the command to enter? how does that overwrite the carrier file? your not even specifying a path to the file?
