    Just hook your phone to ITunes, hit upgrade. It will upgrade our phone to 5.0.1 and will erase the jailbreak as well. Unless you have a 3GS with an iPad baseband.

    if you have used tiny umbrella you may want to open it and make sure that your phone isnt connecting to cydia's servers.

    If you don't need to preserve the phone baseband, upgrade/restore it thru iTunes will erase the jailbreak. That the reason why there are so many accidental upgrade after a new firmware release issue that loose the jailbreak.

    If you understand it differently. Would you care to share?

    It's NEVER been as simple as connecting to itunes and "upgrading" if your phone is currently Jailbroken , sorry. You have to edit your Host file, save the Host File and REBOOT........then try upgrading using the correct IPSW file.

    When you upgrading to current firmware Apple currently signs, you can just upgrading it thru itune.

    If you want to restore/upgrade to a firmware Apple is no longer signing, and you have blob for it, then you will have to go thru hoop to make sure you have TSS server running etc....

    I am not sure where the issue is since I have upgrade so many phones/iPads to the latest firmware before jailbreak them with the latest redsn0w 0.9.10b3. :rolleyes:

    Updating/restoring jailbroken iphones can be a pain, especially when you only do it once every year or two, and forget the steps.

    If a phone hasn't been jailbroken, it's a piece of cake.

    Basically, it isn't always as easy as you may think it is.
