    I have a 2 week old iPhone 3G S. My iPhone was previously Jailbroken. However I had to take it to my local Apple Store to have a Genius test my iPhone's headset volume (cause I thought it was too low). So I restored my iPhone to 3.1 in iTunes, not knowing that you could not downgrade back, once you update to the 3.1 FW. So now I'm pretty much screwed. I can't jailbreak, and I have no choice but to wait until the DevTeam releases a 3.1 jailbreak. Now should I just have my iPhone exchanged for a new one-since 3G S' currently come with 3.0? That's what I'm thinking of doing, because I'm just afraid of two things: 1. It would take a LONG time for a 3.1 JB to be released. And 2. 3.1 would not be Jailbreakable. I can't make up my mind. Can I get some advice please? Thank you!

    It sounds to me like you're making a life or death decision. Calm down. There will be a jailbreak soon, you can live without it for now.

    If you were previously jailbroken then you might have had cydia save your ECID.. If you DID then you can downgrade back to 3.0! Check out Sauriks guide about that
