I have my iPhone 4s jailbroken, I did this with absinthe 2.01 on the weekend. It's untethered and working fine. Today an upgrade is available in Cydia for rocky Racoon..stating this is to allow untethered jailbrake? I'm confused? Is it ok to just upgrade this anyway? It says uninstalling it will unjailbrake the iPhone...does it uninstall to then upgrade it? Arghh..head puzzled :s

Sorry for the noob question..but I am a noob so there :p

Upgrading a package will not removing it first. If it does, it will do it in a safe manner. You should have no issues updating the package. There were several updates to the Corona Jailbreak package in Cydia that saw no issues upon installing.

I upgraded to it and like other things that get updated on Cydia i gather it just overwrites the previous version.

No problems here....so far ;)

But there is no reason to update Rocky Racoon. The only change was to add support for a device which, since you already have it installed, you do not have. All upgrading it does is run a risk (however small) of messing up your perfectly stable jailbreak.

If the badge is annoying you, just go into the package settings and set it to ignore updates for that package.

1.0.3 has just been released. So, just to confirm, we don't need to be updating this, correct? We can just ignore future updates?

It wont hurt anything to update, unless you want the red 1 badge notification to be there all the time. Been doing this for years and have yet to have anything the dev team puts out update wise screw up my phone.

If you are already jb untethered, then yes, this is not for you, but at the same time, it won't matter if you update. The update is for the other devices that have only recently been able to take advantage of untethered jailbreaks, such as the newest release of the iPhone 4 GSM firwmare, or the apple TV and the 4th gen iPad 2.

So, if the badge annoys you, you can just change the cydia package settings on Rocky Racoon to not update you about it's updates.

Or, if that doesn't make you happy, then just update it anyway. It will have absolutely zero effect, and you won't even have to respring or reboot. You can return straight into Cydia.

I wouldn't suggest people turn off update reminders for this. You never know if a critical update will get released and you don't want to be unaware of it because you've set it to ignore.

It will still show every time you go to the Changes section on Cydia, but under the heading "Ignored Updates," and at the very top of the list. A critical update for this package is unlikely though if you ask me.

Oh nice! I've always been afraid to ignore updates because I assumed they would fly under the radar. I'm glad you corrected me. I am awfully sorry if I misled anyone. Thanks Mastah.

There were several semi-critical updates to Corona Untether, the corresponding package for iOS 5.0.1. I think they were related to the original versions breaking iBooks. Something similar could happen with this package, or they could fix an instability - it is after all patching the kernel through some kind of buffer overflow, and who knows if they find a timing issue or something and fix it.

Ignore updates to critical packages at your own risk :)
