    I modified my host file with the
    Code:
    74.208.105.171 gs.apple.com
    and saved it, and reopened it and confirmed its changed.

    I rebooted for good measure and fired up Itunes 8.2 and checked the sync info page and it's still show a 3.1 update available.

    Should this change or not?

    I'm still on 3.0.1 and not changing anything DEV says it's cool.

    BTW Cydia is showing my files on file are 3.0.1 OS for my 3GS.

    We fully recommend redirecting your iTunes signing process through saurik’s “on file” server to future-proof your 3GS jailbreak through all future updates.
    How do I know or test the Itunes redirect works?

    Do a ping to gs.apple.com

    if the replay is: Everthing is allright
    PING gs.apple.com (74.208.105.171): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 74.208.105.171: icmp_seq=0 ttl=55 time=150.472 ms



    If the output is: there is no redirect to Sauriks Server.
    PING gs.apple.com.akadns.net (17.151.36.30): 56 data bytes
    64 bytes from 17.151.36.30: icmp_seq=0 ttl=245 time=194.775 ms

    That's what I got.

    Thanks

    BTW will Itunes continue to show 3.1 available with the redirect?

    or does this have nothing to do with that.

    Is there a way to know if your ECID is registered with Saurik's database or how do you get the iPhone registered with Saurik's database? I am still on 3.0.1 with a iPhone 3GS (never updated), I edited my hosts file, and I can ping gs.apple.com If you do a backup or sync (which does a backup) with iTunes 9.0 will this register your ECID? Thanks for the help!
