    Ok so I've been waiting awhile for this update and now that MyWi is working on ios4 there's no need to remain on 3.1.2 anymore. I originally used the Pwnage tool and have the old bootrom on my 16gb 3GS and baseband 5.11.07, but I had a few questions.
    • Do I need to update to Apple's OFFICIAL Itunes 9.2 software? If so, where can I get it or can I do it directly through iTunes?
    • Should I set up as new or restore from a backup?
    • Do I need to go and change my secure password via terminal again once it's jailbroken?
    • Does ios4 improve battery life?

    Well, I'll be waiting to hear back from my knowledgeable fellow Macrumors members. Thanks in advance for your help.

    You got your 9.2 answer, but here are the others.
    You can make it new or restore, either way is fine.
    If you add OpenSSH and it is new then yes you will have to change it, I believe the same is true for a restore. I use Rock which ask you if you want to change it and does it for you. Sweet!!
    I think the battery is maybe a little better. Probably because I no longer run Backgrounder if nothing else.

    SC, thank God

    just so you know,,, I upgraded a factory unlocked 3gs with official iOS4 via itunes and it upgraded the baseband in addition to the firmware,,, if you do not want to upgrade baseband you might want to create custom with pwnage and upgrade to iOS4 that way.
