    I bought an ipt 3g about a month ago and without knowing iTunes updated my phone to 3.1.3 rendering it un-jailbreakable. I've since returned and bought a new one. I don't want iTunes to update again. I haven't even loaded iTunes yet or opened my ipod until I can confirm that I need to some how disable automatic firmware updates. Also can I backup the 3.1.2 fw in the even it does get updated?

    I appreciate any of your feedback. Thanks everyone. Great forum.

    Well, iTunes won't update unless you tell it to update. It'll never automatically update.

    Good to know. I'm sure there is somewhere to disable to popup notification as well?

    Still pretty new to the scene. I'll have to read up on that one.

    Pages 1-2 don't look promising because no one believed me, after that, all is promising.

    Yeah, it was too good, and surprising that no one thought it would possibly work. But it does.
