    Hello,

    I am a complete novice for jailbreaking.. I have iphone 4 with ios 4.3.3 bb 4.10.01 jailbroken.
    I want to upgrade now to ios 5.0.1 and preserve my bb for unlock using gevey sim. I did some research before but there are so many posts I am confused.
    I did not even upgraded my itunes since 10.3 version. (should i upgrade to 10.5??
    Can some one give me step by step guide into how to preserve bb , retore to 5.0.1 and then do untethered jailbreak on ios 5.0.1?
    If you can provide some link or video tutorial will be great...

    I have a Macbook pro (Intel).

    Any help will be highly appreciated..

    Thanks

    No problem. Creating a custom firmware preserves your current baseband.

    No, keep iTunes at 10.5.2 for now.

    Is this still the best way to JB an iPhone 4 that is still on 4.2.1?

    Don't forget to run redsnow or corona over your pwnage tool jb to get all the latest updates.

    ----------

    Use the latest redsnow.

    Thanks for a fast reply.
    Is there any reason why I should use RedSn0w over PwnageTool?
    Isnt Pwnage tool better since you can create custom firmware and preserve your BB?

    Since you obviously don't pay attention :rolleyes:, redsnow has the capability now to preserve bb. Use what you prefer.
