    • Unfortunately those devices are the same ones that Apple can prevent you from downgrading unless you’ve got a backup of your personalized SHSH blobs. Unless you’ve backed up your SHSH blobs for vulnerable firmware versions, you’ll lose the ability to use the current Spirit jailbreak if you accidentally upgrade.
    • Spirit requires your device to be activated or hacktivated

    Do I have to back up if I'm on 3.1.2?

    1. The same as ever - Spirit is NOT pwnedforlife - you upgrade without the SHSH backed up, you're screwed with no downgrade path and no jailbreak.

    2. iPhones have to be activated via iTunes and their provider to work, just as iPods have to be. A jailbroken and unlocked iPhone can be hacktivated to work with a provider not normally partnered with Apple (T-Mobile in the US). Spirit does not bypass this requirement; no activation means no jailbreak and no usage of device.
