    Whoa! Thanks for letting me know about the new JB (above posters!)

    My iPhone 4S & iPad 3 are giddy with a few extra doses of excitement. :)

    Thanks for the actual tweet and pic 3bs. And you're welcome its93!

    Too bad my replacement 4S came preloaded with 5.1 haha

    Regardless, I'm so excited about this news. Not sure if the mechanism in which they downgrade but hopefully it'll be a long term solution. Stay tuned for more information as its released!

    Redsnow retrieves them. Perhaps you should familiarize yourself with the program.

    Anyone with a guide? I'm sure me and others with no experience with redsn0w, TinyUmbrella and blobs would appreciate it.

    Except that no where in the Tweet does it mention it will include newer jailbreaks.
    It talks about restores for A5 devices.

    ----------

    Speculation to a degree (that is will work similar to current Redsn0w), but it is easy.
    Verify hash and APTicket files are present using Redsn0w (click one button).
    Stitch them to IPSW using Redsn0w (click 2 buttons)
    Use iTunes to navigate to and install the IPSW.

    Sounds good.
    What do you think they mean? At least it will include restoring to 5.0 and 5.0.1 on A5 devices, right?

    Most will not have the APTicket for 5.0 unless they used iFaith to get it (requiring using Sn0wbreeze for building the stitched IPSW)
    TinyUmbrella was not updated to save APTicket until after 5.0.1 came out.

    I hate to ask, but, does this mean that if we received a 5.1 4S Phone, we can downgrade to 5.0.1 and JB?

    Or is it a requirement that we had 5.0.1 to begin with?

    You can't restore unless you have the SHSH blobs saved for your own device. Which you won't if you got your 4S on 5.1.

    No you can not downgrade to 5.0.1 if you received a brand new 4s that came with 5.1 straight from the factory.

    Yeah, a little bit of googling, pre-post, would have helped on my part. Thanks for the info, though.

    Hopefully this will lead to a JB down the line. In the interim, I'll save my blobs now...

    No worries. I never get mad at someone for asking a simple question with a short answer. I just hate when I have to repeat myself! Haha
