    I have a Ipod touch 3G jailbroken with 3.1.3 firmware installed and I'm thinking about upgrading it to 4.1 firmware. I do have SHSH blobs for 4.1, and 4.2.1. I don't have SHSH blobs for 3.1.3 so I won't be able to downgrade it back I think. However, I have heard that the 4.1 firmware has battery issues though it can be jailbroken untethered. Therefore, I have two questions.

    1) Is there anyway to solve the battery issues in 4.1?
    2) Is the update worth it?

    Thanks for your help [​IMG]

    When you say iPod touch 3g, do you mean MC or MB model? You can check in Settings - General - About.

    Since it's an iPod touch 3G, I'd update it to 4.1. You'll have multitasking, Folders, and custom backgrounds enabled and working smoothly.

    [speculation]
    Regarding battery life... The battery drain might be iOS 4.1 looking for a Wi-Fi network all the time (or keeping a Wi-Fi connection). I am unsure if this is the culprit, but you could try turning on Airplane Mode whenever you're not using Wi-Fi.

    iPod touch 3G devices only had "MC" model numbers; it was the iPod touch 2G that had "MB" and "MC" model numbers. [​IMG]

    ^ Oh lol. I'm so used to asking that I forgot about that [​IMG]

    I also recommend updating. I have the same iPod as you on 4.1, it runs perfectly and without any lag whatsoever (with a bunch of Cydia tweaks on top of that)
