If you tap "Update" in the App Store and the app opens instead of updating, this is an Apple bug instead of anything related to your jailbreak.

Here is what I already have: IOS: 6.1 I want to upgrade it to 6.1.3 because of the bug in 6.1 (it's eating battery). SHSH blobs are avilable, everything working perfectly but it stays on "Waiting for device" and after waiting for 15 minutes NO Luck :(

After taking long time device restarted and Redsn0w says "Unexpected error 2831"


"Battery drain" isn't iOS specific. Plenty of users on the same iOS on the same device aren't having battery issues. Check that you've removed any and all pirated and incompatible tweaks/apps, and check on the number of full charge cycles on your device since an aged battery will have a decrease in battery capacity/performance if it's too drastic.

iOS 6.1.3 is the latest iOS, you don't need RedSn0w to restore the device... DFU the device and restore using iTunes. If you're planning to rejailbreak, you'll need to select the iOS 6.0 IPSW for the device of your choice assuming it's a pre-A5 device

I'm trying to install 6.1 into my 3GS, issue is not with battery drain or other things, I just want to install 6.1 SHSH blobs are available but when I want to restore it with RedSn0w it stays for days at "Restoring to iPhone: Waiting for device..." after waiting 15-30 minutes my device restart and nothing happened.
