    Im sorry if this has been asked before, I looked but didn't find it. Im new to jailbreaking, and i have only done it very recently, so im wondering with all this talk about 3.1, is it possible to upgrade, or do i have to restore to a "real" version of 3.0, and upgrade from there?

    thanks greatly

    yes i understand there is a way! but which is it? did you have to;
    - un-jailbreak first, then upgrade. or
    - just upgrade while jailbroken?

    If you update while jailbroken, then it will become un-jailbroken. Then you will have to use an updated RedSn0w for 3.1 to re-jailbreak.

    you can upgrade with out restoring but in my experience it has created left the old stuff from the jailbreak (themes etc.) in the same place but the folders are not read by winterboard so if you had a lot of themes they will just take up space unless you use ssh to move them in to the new folder that winderboad creates (sorry if this is confusing) but i would either restore to 3.0 then upgrade or let itunes download the upgrade but not install then alt+click (mac) shift+click (in windows) the restore button and find the ipsw file for 3.1 and select it the it will restore to 3.1 and then you can rejailbreak

    That is a good tip. Restore to the fresh 3.1 ...

    Is there a way to list all of the jb items you have installed without ssh?
    It will take a while to restore, resync, jb, and reload everything from Cydia.
