    Is it, at the moment, impossible to jailbreak a 3g 64g touch with 3.1.3?
    Since downgrading to 3.1.2 doesnt work and there hasnt been a jailbreak program released that works for the 3.1.3. Is it really at the moment impossible for the common users? Where can I find out as soon as the new jailbreak comes out?

    I'm positive you'll find out here when it's available.

    it'll probably be front-paged or something.

    It's not hopeless... It will eventually come.
    The Dev Team is waiting for a major firmware release. 3.1.3 is a very small release.

    my patience is wearing thin. I was promised a release a week ago.
    Don't tell me the Dev team has anything better to do than drink mountain dew and write code all day. The 3rd gens have been shafted too long.

    If they use the hole that is probably in the 3.1.3 firmware, Apple will fix it for the 4.0 release and therefore, it will take longer for a 4.0 jailbreak. Just wait for the 4.0 release.

    1. The Dev Team doesn't even accept donations.
    2. They didn't sign a contract promising anybody anything.
    3. They're normal people. They have a life.
    4. Complaining about it won't help it come any faster.

    Be patient. I think it'll come in the next firmware release.

    They can just stop supporting the iPhone / iPod altogether.
    They're doing it out of the goodness of themselves, be thankful and hope it comes.

    I don't see anything in that post about them promising a iPod Touch 3G jailbreak for 3.1.3. To quote:

    So, to sum up that post:

    1) 3.1.3 adds nothing, and its only changes for an iPod Touch user are meant to keep you from jailbreaking. It appears mostly to be a release to catch the impatient and the dev teams... or those who can't read the 'do not upgrade' warnings which show up all over Cydia, the dev team site, as well as on the iPTF front page.

    2) iPhone Dev Team are sitting out this release; if you've got a iPod Touch 2G or 1G, or a pre-new iBoot device (iPhone 1G, 2G, 3G, early 3GS), then they've added 3.1.3 support to them because there were NO MAJOR CHANGES. However, for a device with a new iBoot, those minor changes were enough to close out the loophole/vulnerability used by blackra1n and redsn0w 0.9.2 and 0.9.3.

    3) The Dev Team says: never upgrade immediately when firmware is available. Find out what's been changed, and then if they'll support that FW release, unless you don't mind being unjailbroken. Pre new-iBoot devices, once pwned, stay that way. New iBoot-based devices (like your Late 2009 Touch) don't. Apple changed things enough with the newer hardware that all the old fixes that iPhone Dev Team used are no longer present. They may have found new ones, but they're holding onto them so that they can't be patched out of existence the way the ones that let blackra1n (and redsn0w) run were... especially not for a piddling 'we only changed the FW number' release.
