    Hi all,

    I'm on 4.3.3 and have not saved my SHSH blobs. Is it possible to save my blobs and then upgrade to 5?

    Or do I need to upgrade to 4.3.5, save my blobs, and then upgrade to 5.

    Thanks for any help!

    you would need to update tp 4.3.5 if you want your blobs becasue 4.3.3 is not being signed anymore so those cannont be saved

    I had no idea this was the case...going to be a long night after i get back from work. I may just bail on my JB for the time being and not worry about my blobs.

    i have a quick question about downgrading.

    if i upgrade my iPad first gen to iOS 5 (its on 4.2.1 now) can i downgrade back down if i don't like it and miss my jailbreak?

    i have the shah blobs saved from cydia from 3.2 - 4.3 9why no iPhone 5?)

    I hope so...i was about to go home and upgrade from 4.3.3 to 4.3.5 -> Jailbreak 4.3.5 -> save my SHSH blobs and then upgrade to ios5 with the hopes if i didnt like it i could go back to 4.3.5 JB.

    I can confirm that I have 4.3.5 jailbroken using Redsn0w 0.9.8b7b, but I'm currently asking if it can be unlocked in another thread.

    Hope this helps.

    4.3.5 IS STRICTLY TETHERED JAILBREAK!

    Unless it's been updated as of a couple weeks ago, and I am unaware.It is still only tethered. Be weary when updating if you don't have SHSH Blobs saved!

    My apologies, I should have said this too for the benefit of the OP. I never switch my phone off and it's regularly charged so that's my excuse! :)

    and 4.3.3 is not signed anymore correct so if you upgrade to ios5 the only downgrade you can do prior to a ios5 jailbreak would be a 4.3.5 tethered?
