    so i just found out what happens when you try to jailbreak with itunes 9

    itunes shuts down, causing the jailbreak to stop, and most of the time causing you to restore, very smart apple

    Oh and keep checking your recycle bin, itunes will keep putting your old firmware in there from time to time

    wait and it gets better, if you accedentally update to 3.1.1 u cant go back and jailbreak 3.0, BECAUSE itunes shuts down when u try,


    im sure dev-team has found this out, wait for them to officially give their say

    I thought there isn't even a jailbreak method for 3.1 released yet? Why even try if the dev-team hasn't even released it, it obviously won't work unless you have some lucky charms for breakfast and then pooft! it works.

    Even if you have lucky charms it won't do anything. It won't work. Wait for Chronic's jailbreak.

    If iTunes 9 won't let you downgrade, then try iTunes 8.

    Yeh, I know lucky charms won't work. haha, just saying that it won't work. Plus I personally don't see a reason to upgrade anyways, just some bug fixes plus copy past for the phone numbers.. pffftt.. please.

    The bug fixes is enough of a reason to update, in my opinion. I want this useless crap on my iPod off. I'm thinking of reformatting it soon.
