    yes it's a 100% safe to upgrade Now if you have your 4.0.1 shsh saved then you might wanna do the tiny umbrella trick to save your 1.59.00 baseband. Ofcourse that's only if you want to unlock it and sell it later on.

    Worst case scenario it screws up and you have to restore and potentially try the jb again but it's not going to brick your phone or anything. Yeah software was buggy, has been reported as pretty stable as of beta 4. Most of the other people who won't use it are just holding a grudge against geohot, warranted or not it's their choice. Even when greenpoison is released it will use the same exploit and jailbreak, you are just going to have a different tool to use to perform the jb.

    As I understand it A, JBing is not & can not damage your phone.

    The worst you can do is lose youre settings &/or personal information but if you are wise, you will backup everything & use Tiny Umbrella before you JB.

    I personally have not used it & I am dying too, but it started out very buggy as you can probably tell by all the post here since last night. And since Im going out of town on business tomorrow I just didnt have time to work thru' the bugs & potentially have a non-working phone on my trip.

    But as soon as I get back Ill be all over it.

    Some of us think one thing or another about this or that developer & all thats just drama & excitement that will be over soon.

    Dont let it stop you from JBing your phone. Itll all work out & youll have a great experience.. Good Luck! :D

    It's always wise to wait a few days, though more so on an exploit that was rushed to meet a deadline such as this one. Most are reporting no problems, so it's relatively safe... however the bug thread is filling up quickly.

    Sure there might be bugs but you can always restore your phone back to exactly how it was before if the jb gets screwed up. You're not going to lose anything save maybe a few hours if it's buggy

    LimeRa1n worked perfectly for me.. I'm not going to get involved with this internet fighting going on between sides.. I'm beyond that. If the product is out there, and works, I'll take it, regardless of who put it out there.

    Yeah since they made the jb? Lol comex was the only one to help contribute and he is part of the dev team not cdt so why you would give a bunch of people money who would have screwed us worse than geohot is beyond me.

    There is no such thing as a jb that will perma screw your phone up. Might be some bugs but you can always do a restore. Only potential damage you could do is lose your baseband which is not a problem for everyone already on 4.1 anyways

    So, with this new jail break I can update my phone to the newest version and then JB ya? Also, I bought the lockinfo ap, which I love, can I get it back without having to buy it again?

    I am interested in unlocking my iPhone. Do I have to save my shsh 1.59.00 baseband before I upgrade to 4.1 and before jailbreaking?

    Shsh and baseband are 2 different things. You can only save shsh that apple is still signing and this will auto be done if you click make my life easy in cydia.

    If you want to retain the ability to unlock you need to preserve your baseband while updating to 4.1 then jb and you will be able to unlock still.

    Yeah when I redownloaded lockinfo it just asked for the email and password for the acct I purchased it with and then it validated the license. If you have trouble you can contact David ashman the dev for Li. He is on here and twitter under the name stimpy5050
