    Hi there, I have a Iphone 4s IOS 5.1.1 with Jailbreak and was wondering to update to IOS 6.0.1. Can I just to that via Itunes (the update), or will I have problems because of the jailbreak? Can anyone help me please?
    Thanks in advance.

    You need to restore the phone through iTunes via usb I believe.

    I know that about the jailbreak, but I do not need IT anyway ...

    My big concern is if I hit UPDATE, I will have no problems during the update

    DFU restore to 6.0.1 IMO. Sync and backup first though just in case.

    You don't need to do that. Turn your phone off, hold the home button, and plug it in to a computer with itunes on it (while holding the home button). Within a few seconds, you'll see a "connect to itunes" screen on your iphone, and on your computer you'll get a pop up in itunes prompting you to restore. (You can then let go of the home button) Do that, and you'll be 100% fine.

    DFU restore is your safest option.

    While this is an option, this will leave your file system partially intact. To wipe your phone, and any filesystem remnants, use a DFU restore:

    See above.
