    i have a quick question guys, if you were to save your baseband and upgrade to 4.1, what if you later want to restore your phone again fresh on 4.1 again, would the baseband then change to the one of 4.1's ? or afterwards if you restore it, the baseband would stay the same forever

    Say you saved your old baseband. If you do a restore it will be updated no matter what.

    That is why the Dev Team warns you not to update your iPhone until all tools are updated.

    so even once i get my iphone to 4.1 firmware with the 1.59.00 baseband of 4.0.2 firmware's, that 4.0.2's baseband would change if i happen to want to restore my iphone again ? i can't use tinyumbrella to do the process?

    On IP 4, if you continue to use TU while restoring, your baseband shouldn't ever change.

    Yes, every time you restore or update an i4 if you have TU running your baseband will stay the same and you can preserve it for as long as you want.

    and the only way to downgrade back down the firmware you want, you must have the shsh blobs saved and everything is done with T.U. open as well, correct? i currently have 4.0.2 thats is not jailbroken yet but i don't want to update to 4.1 *sighs* but AT the same time, i couldn't save my shsh blobs because a jailbreak wasn't out during the time i got my iphone so i guess i can only save 4.1 and up SHSH blobs

    Yes. You must have SHSH files saved, on your computer or on Cydia. To use them, use TU for on your computer or edit host file pointing to Cydia. And, you can save your files with TU even if your phone is not JB.

    how do i save my files with TU without being JB ? i clicked on "save my SHSH" on TU and it was saying "making connection to cydia" or something so i figured that since i dont even HAVE cydia on my iphone, it wont work

    Tinyumbrella didnt work for me. I was forced to restore to 4.1 and lost my baseband capability. Be careful.

    What do you mean by TU does not work?

    If you cannot get your iPhone out of recovery using TU for the first time then close TU, reopen and again try to remove iPhone from recovery mode.

    If that too does not work (Worked for me) then I guess there is another too called iREB i guess to remove iPhone from recovery!

    i just jailbroke my 4.0.2 with limera1n and i didnt see the "make my life easier" on cydia ...so i dont know what hapeppened cus i didnt press anything. BUT i did manage to save my shsh blobs thru tiny umbrella, does this mean whenever i want to go back to the firmware that is saved, i can do so? or do i have to save my SHSH blobs everytime i want to restore?

    Because you already started saving your shsh's with TU and a copy has been forwarded to Cydias server. So its not going to ask you.

    so does that mean it will auto save all the upcoming firmwares as well? or do i have to manually save the shsh blobs through tiny umbrella everytime a new firmware comes out.

    Autosave works, may take weeks for it to show in Cydia. The best thing to do is save through Tinyumbrella when Apple starts the signing window for new firmware.

    Can't be wrong if you save them manually, Apple is not releasing FWs every two days, so the effort shouldn't be high.
    Catshit.

    TU (or recboot, et al) also won't kick an iPhone out of Recovery on an x64 windows box unless libusb is hacked in. I've just been using RecBoot on a mac to accomplish the same task, then going back to the PC to restore the backup.
