    hi guys I was about to gamble on my iPhone by upgrading .. then I thought macrumors!

    these are my specs :

    iPhone 4 ... 4.3.3 ... 04.10.01 ... jailbroken by : jailbreakme

    can I upgrade it simply by iTunes ? or do I need redsn0w ? and if so link me to a guide?

    sorry for being a n00b .. but plz bare with me

    If you dont care about an unlock or turbo gevey sim you just update or restore to 5.0.1 and then use redsnow to JB it.
    That's it.
    Make sure you activate the phone after its done restoring and you can get into the homescreen. Then use Redsnow to jb it.

    Locked? Unless you have a factory-unlocked iPhone 4, you are already "locked" to your carrier with your current baseband version.

    What about my payed apps like iBlacklist, MeZeZe? Will i be able to get them back and do they work with iOS 5.01? And my game saves, what about those? The phone is JB'en with 4.3.3 and unlocked from factory, what are my options? I dont care about the BB really as i have a subscription with my carrier. but if i backup my phone, can i use the backup on the new iOS 5.01?

    You can download your paid cydia apps again after you restore and rejailbreak.
    They're tied up to your facebook or googleID login with cydias server.
    Not sure if all packages have been updated and work fine on 5.0.1
    You will have to do some legwork and find out for yourself.
    And yes you can just restore to official 5.0.1 since your iphone is factory unlocked, you dont have to worry about ever losing the unlock. And yes you can restore from your previous backup with itunes if you want.

    Also i have some payed Themes as well as apps, but not sure if they are IoS5 compatible yet, but i'll have to find out. About my gamesaves, i think i'll back up my phone first, and then upgrade to 5.01, and then run RedSnow and jailbrake again, and re-install my payed apps and themes. But restore from a backup would be even sweeter, if that really works, i wont loose my gamesaves either, right?

    Thnx!

    Yes, all your game progress will transfer when you restore from backup on itunes.

    Try it again.
    Make sure your hosts file points to apples servers and not cydias.

    You can use tinyumbrella and uncheck the box that says set hosts to cydia on exit.
    Its in the advanced tab of TU.

    Follow AJ's instruction regarding TU. Also, reboot your computer as well.

    Here is what you need to do;

    1. Open tiny umbrella, click on advance tab, uncheck 2 boxes ( Set Hosts to Cydia on exit & Request SHSH from Cydia), close tiny umbrella, restart your computer.
    2. Open Itunes,
    3. make sure your phone hook up to your computer, put it into DFU mode.
    4. Itunes will detect it as it is in recovery mode, click okay, the click restore.
    5. Your phone should restore okay after this.
