    "Rock Out without Lockout

    This week Apple will be all over the news with their announcements at Wednesday’s “Let’s Rock” event. But with so many new owners of the iPhone 3GS, and with so many new owners of the iPhone 3G (perhaps sold to them by these new 3GS owners)…now is a good time to send out this general advisory.

    If you update to Apple’s new software using the normal iTunes process, you will lose your ultrasn0w unlock. In fact you may lose it permanently, because for most people the baseband firmware cannot be reverted to a previous version (unlike the main application CPU firmware).

    But don’t worry…our PwnageTool program lets you update your main firmware without touching your baseband firmware, so you can still have the best of both worlds. But you must be diligent about saying “no” to your iTunes request this week to update your firmware."

    What I see is the DevTeam saying don't be hasty in updating to 3.1

    Edited: Goodeye thinks I'm being "snarky".

    Question:

    I shouldnt have an issue if I update to 3.1 since I live in Greece, and the iPhone was a factory unlocked iPhone from Vodafone, correct?

    Is this implying that the dev team is working on some type of in place upgrade? Thereby not losing our current apps.

    Thanks
    David.

    Probably not. I think they are referring to the fact that Pwnage tool lets you create IPSW without the baseband update. This tool ALWAYS requires you to completely restore your phone.

    If any system would be able to "upgrade" it would be a version of redsn0w.

    Thanks. I didn't think so, but wanted to get another opinion.
