    I just got a 3GS and planning on having a jailbreak.
    It seems wise to back up the SHSH file before JB but I was told Apple has made this impossible.

    So I am wondering if there is any way for me to get the SHSH file?
    If not, what might be the terrible consequence if I JB without backing up the SHSH file?

    Many thx!

    The SHSH blobs come from Apple and are tied to one specific device. Apple is no longer signing 3.1.3 and only signing 4.0. You are S.O.L.

    If I JB and failed somehow, then I can only upgrade to iOS 4? Is that correct?
