    I currently have jb on 4.1. my iphone springboard crashed twice since JB 4.1 was out. I am thinking of starting fresh and restore 4.1 from itune and jb again. if I don't restore 4.1 now, it will be gone from itune this sunday (don't trust restore from download elsewhere). beside 4.2 JB might take a while to be available.

    should I do this? if not, why?

    Firmwares don't just disappear. You can still get 1.0, and every other version directly from Apple. You just don't know how is all. Simply go to and search for the string for the firmware version and model number of iphone you have. Then download the file. I also maintain a list of links for all firmwares direct from Apple here:

    What you should be doing is getting your SHSHs with tinyumbrella right now while 4.1 is still being signed.

    I am guessing you mean it will be gone because of this thread.

    Apple likely won't stop signing the day 4.2 comes out any way. 4.0.1 signed for a couple weeks after 4.1. Also we might be able to jailbreak out of the gate. well trusted site to get any firmware from
