    Hi guys I was wondering, I have the JB down pat using blackrain of course, but now don’t know what to do with the baseband upgrade it prompts me for when I sync. I know it has more to do with people who are unlocking but im on att so is it safe for me to simply say yes to the upgrade?

    Also, when I open Cydia it tells me that I have on SHSH’s file for 3.0, 3.1 and 3.1.2 Is that so I can use them in the future when a new firmware comes out and I may have a better chance of JB’ing? Or what exactly does that mean for me..

    Thanks!!!

    Is it a baseband update when you Sync or is it a carrier update?

    You are correct about the SHSH files; it will make future jailbreaks possible. There is more to it than that but that is the basics of it.

    I've never heard of any problems doing the carrier updates you should be safe to do so.
