During a Restore, the 3rd Party Applications themselves are removed. However, I have found that some files eft by the apps are not.

I don't know the answer to your question however. I would wait until somebody confirms that updating to 1.1.3 from jailbroken 1.1.2 is safe before you update to be safe.

If you update successfuly let us know. I have some friends with jailbroken Touches and one with a jailbroken iPhone that would like to update and want me to confirm if it's okay.

You can update without restoring (on a Jailbroken iPhone, do not try with an unlocked iPhone) but it will likely not completely clear the phone of everything you have added since Jailbreaking. In order to make sure that the update clears out all of the old Apps and customizations, you will want to restore first, and then update to 1.1.3.

I think the safest way to is downgrade to 1.1.1/restore to 1.1.2 not 1.1.3 first. Not only does the restore erase the third party applications but I THINK that placing in a new firmware would erase the other files which were not erased. Thus from there you would have a clean iPhone and it should work.

No proof yet just speculation.

Okay. I'm going to test this out by jailbreaking 1.1.2, installing BSD Subsystem, (because everybody installs it), and attempting to update to 1.1.3.

Erica over at TUAW did the process successfuly. Hopefully I will do the same. If not, and I'm bricked, I'm sure a fix will be out soon.

Here goes.

Alright. So I jailbroke 1.1.2 by downgrading, etc. I installed nothing but the BSD Subsystem, as almost everybody has it installed, and I wanted to do the same process that everybody else would use.

- Jailbroke 1.1.2 by downgrading, etc. Installed only BSD Subsystem, making it and Installer the only two un-official programs on the phone.
- Docked iPhone and synced as usual.
- Clicked Restore, then Restore and Update.
- Agreed to Software License Agreement.
- Update began downloading. This one is obviously a whopper; 162.1 MB with a download time of 20 minutes.
- Download complete.
- iTunes is extracting the software. Now preparing for Restore.
- iPhone reboots, shows Apple logo and status indicator.
- Restoring iPhone software.
- Verifying iPhone software
- Message: Your iPhone has been Restored to factory settings, etc, etc.
-iphone Reboots, makes ding sound, connects to iTunes.
- iPhone is Activated .
- Restoring from backup of John's iPhone.
- Message: The settings for the iPhone have been restored, etc., etc.
- iPhone boots. I get message on how to re-arrange the home screen; I'm on 1.1.3.
- iPhone syncs. There is a rather large portion of 'Other' - despite the phone's lack of 3rd Party Apps. Interesting. Perhaps I'll try another Restore after American Idol.

So yes, you can safely update to 1.1.3 from a jailbroken 1.1.2. Note that you may want to uninstall all of your apps first, as I didn't have any Installed.

Okay I have a jailbroken 1.1.2 phone.
I have never had to restore and had not problems in any way with my jailbroken phone.

After reading your post I:

Should remove all of my present 3rd party apps, except BSD and Installer, and update.

Will I have to jailbreak again, which I am hestitant to do since I nearly lost my mind trying to do it the last time,or does the phone remain in the jailbroken state?

Am I paranoid in the presumption that Apple MUST have put SOMETHING into this update to either affect jailbreaking and 3rd party apps, and/or something to track whether it has been jailbroken?

Just asking

thanks
Dana
