    I have been trying for a few days to Update my Jailbroken(redsn0w) iPhone 4(Verizon) 4.2.8 to a higher Jailbroken iOS no matter which iTunes version I try, how I edit my host file, using sn0wBreeze(doesn't work because of host issues), using redsn0w, or anything else I try wont work. I was considering restoring my iOS back to OEM, but I'm unsure if I will be able to upgrade the iOS and jailbreak it again, because I ran into this issue when I initially tried to jailbreak it. Anyone have any suggestions

    You'll need valid shsh's to upgrade to 6.x
    If you don't have those your are SOL.

    4.2.8???? About 3 years late in the upgrade race....

    Only option is iOS 7 at the moment, but no JB out, that will take a bit of time, most probably nov/dec.

    Thank you for the info so here the big question I guess should I upgrade to 7 and then just wait for a jailbreak or stay on 4.2.8 and wait till the jailbreak to come out. I got my cousins old iPhone for free and that's the version she had on it so I rolled with it

    Out of curiosity is there a way to upgrade to iOS 7 while keeping the baseband?

    Nope. Apple is only signing 7.x at this moment, so you may not be getting anything 6.x for a long while, if not ever.

    That article is from June 2013, back when iOS 7 was still in beta and hence iOS 6.1.3 the latest official iOS version which was still signed by Apple.

    Besides, so far there hasn't been an untethered jailbreak for 6.1.3/4, so the whole article is useless actually. There are plenty of sites with such headlines though, just to catch Google hits.
