Hi. New to forum. Require some assisstance. I have an iphone 4 jailbroken and chillen on 5.1.1. I want to accept ota update to 6.1.3, losing jailbreak, and recover to 6.1.2 to jailbreak again. I know it sounds redundant and you may ask, "why would you WANT to do that?" Well, when i open cydia i get 3 errors. Wow, you exceeded the number of package names this APT is capable of. Problem with MergeList The package lists or status file could not be parsed or opened. I assume this means i have too many packages to list or something. When i go into packages in cydia i get an empty list. Whenever i search for packages in repos, or just try to view lists of packages in repos i get the same blank stare from the iphone as if it's saying, "seriously you want to download MORE?" This is why I want to update. Plus, I'm hoping to get some better data signal and whatnot. ANYWAY. Heres my inquiry. If I accept the OTA and lost jb, I lose access to cydia. This means I lose acess to my shsh blobs as well right? So, how would I be able to downgrade back to 6.1.2? I would assume I could save my blobs now, then update, then downgrade. But I dont even know how to save my blobs with redsnow, and TU wont play with my cpu. I have the latest version of java and TU and blahblahblah, lets not beat that dead horse. My other problem is that my iphone is the source of internet for my laptop. So I'm not sure how I'd update straight to 6.1.2 with redsnow retrieving the blobs remotely from cydia because after selecting the ipsw and toggling redsnow to retrieve the blob remotely and putting the phone in DFU mode, my laptop will lose its internet and be unable to contact cydia right? ANY help is appreciated. I'm to the point of pulling my hair out now lol. Thank you in advance. http://www.unlockboot.com/2013/03/downgrade-from-ios-613-to-ios-612.html This is where I read how to upgrade/downgrade using redsnow. It doesnt state whether the phone needs to be rooted for redsnow to get the blobs though. But like I said, when the phone enters dfu, laptop loses internet/redsnow loses cydia, then I'm in a pickle.
