So fucking retarded! I tried loading the IPCC carrier file without going to 3.1 cause I was jailbroken and that didnt work. My itunes wouldnt let me choose carrier files through shift+update so I loaded the 8.2 beta itunes everyone reported worked and it wanted to restore my phone.

Long story short, I just said screw it and updated to 3.1 and got the carrier file normally. It takes FOREVER to send a pic and forever to get it and that if it will even go through. I have sent three pics to my wife and had to retry on all of them because they failed and she finally got one of the three.

Total crap but I hear Apple is pretty pissed at ATT and this is their last straw to get it right. We will see, either way, my cell phone from 2002 sent MMS pics quicker than this.

You should have just copied the string from davabrucas's post into the cmomand prompt, it allows you to pick the file you need.

Mine wouldn't go at first, but I just did a couple back to back with no issues. I think it's AT&T and the network adjusting to the new traffic more than a phone/software issue.

Holy crap, has anyone else noticed the drop in battery life with 3.1? I went to bed with the battery in the green and it was dead this morning, threw it on the charger while I brushed my teeth and got ready for work and it was on and barely out of the red. Got to work was checking my email about 45 minutes later and it went dead again. CRAP!!!

Yep, my battery life has always been crap. I have to charge my phone every single night, and sometimes plug it back in before the day is over. I don't talk on it more than 5 minutes a day.

If you have everything backed up and sync'd before you restore you should be fine. Lason if you need help call me..

Basically the phones dont let you be set up on the latest version of Itunes and then try to downgrade itunes without restoring you phone.
I can almost promise you once you put 8.2 beta on its going to ask you to restore before you do ANYTHING! Just back your phone up and download the correct IPSW restore file and then shift restore... it wont update unless you have a 3gs
Also you should have called me I could have helped you without going to 3.1

If you have a 3G I MAY be able to get you jailbreak back, but no tethering or unlock if you wanted to sell to tmobile person

yes you should lose a jailbreak if you update threw itunes to get 3.1 and MMS

How did you keep it jailbroken or get the 3.1 jailbroken? You sure its 3.1 and not 3.0.1?
I attempted to jailbreak a 3G with 3.1 yesterday, it wud not work

Im trying to figure out what your trying to do. if your wanting to update carrier for tethering with the 3.1 you cant get tethering. If its for MMS just do it threw apple.

Im confused on what your trying to do... did you upgrade to 3.1 then jailbreak on a MAC?

YEs I used pwnage tool on 3.1 on an iMac it is very simple. I did the 3.1 hoping to get mms and then says update carrier settings which I haven't done yet because I don't want to lose all the jailbreak. Let me know if anyone else has done this.

Here's the thing, You can update ur firmware threw itunes to get 3.1 and it will ask you if you want to update carrier file as well. The carrier will get you MMS, Then you can go back a jailbreak it again using a MAC..

DId you already update your FW to 3.1 threw APPLE? What does your baseband say? 4.26.08 or 5.11.07?
I dont understand how you updated to 3.1 and IT alone didnt take your jailbreak away... thats what Im confused on

My Summary
3.1 FW will disable tethering but allows MMS, as long as your not Tmobile you can still jailbreak the 3g with a MAC but you can no longer unlock for t-mobile!

I am not too worried about the unlocking part. I plan on keeping this phone until it breaks. I am restoring it right now and going to update to 3.1 through itunes and then re jailbrake.

You lose unlock and tethering. If I didnt lose tethering I would do it too, but then again 3gs cant be jailbroke...
I wouldnt but thats your call, you can get MMS with 3.0. You will lose tethering if you EVER want to use that

If you go back to 3.0 I can tell you how to get MMS and tethering with your jailbreak already intact without having to redo it all
