Did you try manual update (Download yourself then shift+restore) or did you let iTunes download and install?

No effect on Jailbreak, download http://appldnld.appl...08_Restore.ipsw
and shift+restore in iTunes, then guide iTunes to it.

Sometimes it depends on where you get the ipsw from. I've had many fail from top sites.
