    Hey guys, I recently updated my iPhone from 5.0.1 to 5.1.1 using redsn0w + blobs + an ipsw, but now I am noticing the phone takes noticably longer to boot when completely shutdown....On 5.0.1, it used to take under 30 seconds (fully loaded) but now, it takes up to 2 minutes to boot up (half empty).

    Is this to be expected and why? :confused:

    That is expected because of how the jailbreak on iOS 5.1.1 works.

    Thanks for the reply! Would you mind explaining further? I couldn't find more info as to why that is the case.....I know it's not a huge deal because I don't cold boot my iPhone often, but it was an unanticipated downside over my 5.0.1 jailbreak :(

    It is because the jailbreak must "massage" out the memory location of the kernel so that it can be patched out. The raccoon binary also needs to be broken a few times before it will launch as it needs to.

    Was hoping for a more technical explaination haha, but I get the point :) Doesn't sound as clean as the JB for 5.0.1 in function, but I guess it still does the trick so...
