I had planned to jail break for the first time tomorrow. I updated to 6.1 OTA because I always do and didn't know that was not advised. I do not want to restore because I had not backed up in a while and do not want to go back that far. Can I still jail break my phone?

You can plug it to iTunes. Do a backup and then hit restore.
When its done you can then restore from backup and everything will be exactly the same.

Yes it's the same. You need the gsm one.
Not the gsm+CDMA ipsw.

Thumbs down ?

I don't get it. If Apple releases 6.1.1 days after the jailbreak and you have a jailbroken device, why not just choose not to install the update? I've never known an update to be forced.

Aren't blobs worthless at the moment in that you can't currently use them to downgrade

Correct.
No one is forced to upgrade their firmware.
But we always get some that "accidentally" upgrade their firmware

Who cares if you can use them to downgrade? Just don't upgrade. Maybe I'm missing something, but I don't get this.

That's correct.
But if they're telling us to save them they might have a reason or they're working on a solution

Okay ... That clears things up. I just couldn't figure out the point in saving blobs. I've never accidentally upgraded the firmware on anything ... Phone or anything else ... LOL.

I hear you, me neither. There's always some when a new firmware comes out that claim they plugged in their iphone to itunes and it automaticly did it without them knowing and other crazy stories
Its good to have the blobs there in case in the future we can use them to restore to older firmware that we have blobs for.

Yeah but what happens if you have an issue with your device and your only option is to do a restore, you will be forced to have the latest firmware unless there becomes a way to downgrade with your blobs

Hello,
I have experienced a problem during the process, every time I run redsn0w and try to save the blobs, it quits unexpectedly. When I try to select the IPSW manually, it says it's not supported with the current redsn0w version... Any ideas? redsn0w_mac_0.9.15b3 is the one I am using.


Thanks in advance!

Maybe you're jailbroken on 6.1 and apple releases 6.1.1, where there will never be a jailbreak. 5 days later you install a tweak from cydia that puts you into a boot loop and forces you to restore to 6.1.1.

What now?

Use safe-mode to uninstall the tweak, wotks for almost all bad apps

'Almost'

All i'm really saying is that it's worth the time to do a full restore so that, even if it's a freak occurence, you are able to restore to a jailbreakable firmware.

Something I'm not clear on and I've never found a satisfactory answer (please note I haven't started a new thread - I've jb before, but this is the first time I've saved blobs (6.1). Should I ever need to restore to 6.1 & jb again, what I do I do with these blobs? I know what they're for, but what procedure will I need to go through to restore to 6.1 & jb should I need too once 6.1.1 or whatever is released?

Btw, successfully jailbroke my 5 earlier, just drumming my fingers waiting for Cydia to die down - I didn't get a single tweak, boo hiss

We don't know yet.
They haven't released a tool that will use them and let you restore using those blobs yet. Hope in the near future. For now we at least know they are there saved.

Aah right, thanks. I thought I was missing something really obvious but apparently not.
