    nope unfortunately not. do you know if cydia backed up your blobs? well to be honest just update to 5.0 and wait for jb then =D

    also do you mind if it's a tethered jb?

    for a 3.1.3 firmware downgrade or a 5.0 firmware upgrade?
    for 3.1.3 no, i dont care
    for 5.0 i'd wait for an untethered...
    as for my blobs, unless it does it automatically, no it didnt

    AFAIK, redsn0w can jailbreak all devices on all firmwares right up to 5.0, so there's not much point downgrading. On most devices it'll be tethered, but I guess that's better than nothing. And I'm pretty sure without blobs it is impossible to downgrade at all.

    EDIT: And I think Cydia does automatically backup blobs, so if you have been jailbroken at a suitable time (i.e. when 3.1.3 was still officially installable), then you should be able to downgrade.

    Nope. Why not just jailbreak it on 4.3.5?

    i have that right now, im just not using the features... so it seems like a waste to have them when i can get them for ios 3.1.3 from the cydia store... also, ios 4.3.5 cant run the n64 emulator

    Just use the tethered jailbreak for ios 5 for a little while. Depending on what device you use there isn't a problem...

    Wrong!
    The iOs 5 tethered jailbreak doesn't work on ipad 2 or 4gs and an untetetherd solution has yet to be released.

    depanding in the device you have you can restore to IOS 3.1.3 without SHSH blobs.
