    annnnnd, does it mean that if I JB and have to reboot I have no choice but restore to 3.1.3?

    Ifffff i restore to 3.1.3 it seems (as best as this noob can see) that, without sigs, I will need to wait for the 3.1.3 JB release.

    whats the other 1%

    If you're jailbroken now, and if you clicked the "Save my SHSH keys" link in Cydia way back when, you're fine. This was brought up when 3.1.3 first came out almost two months back, and as long as you're jailbroken now... you SHOULD be able to restore to 3.1.2, as long as (when you open Cydia) it shows that 3.1.2 has SHSH keys saved for it at the top of the main Cydia screen.

    Otherwise, if you haven't jailbroken, do so RIGHT AWAY using redsn0w and backup your keys ASAP. Then you can restore to normal 3.1.2 later if you choose to, using the instructions in the Jailbreak 3.1.x forum.

    If the top of your Cydia homepage looks like mine does, then you've backed up your 3G too late(Or have just bought it recently like myself). But if you have 3.1.2 up there instead or 3.1.2 and 3.1.3 you're just fine.

    The SHSH keys are on the iPod - you don't need to back them up before jailbreaking, not if you're jailbreaking the existing 3.1.2 image. If you're jailbreaking now, then after the jailbreak you use Cydia to back them up, unless you want to use Umbrella to back up the ECID SHSH keys per the Umbrella thread at the top of the forum, which I'll link to here.

    Am I correct thinking that the backup is held on the cydia server?
