    If you don't need to preserve your phone baseband, you just need to hook it up to Itunes and hit update. It will update your phone to 5.0.1 and you will not get any error.

    That is depending on how often you back up your phone. Is this your first time? :cool:

    Update jailbroken 4.2.1

    I have a jailbroken iPhone 4 running on 4.2.1
    As there is a untethered jailbreak for 5.0.1 can I just update via iTunes and then re-jailbreak my phone using redsn0w? Will I have to download all my apps from installous and Cydia again? A network unlock is not a problem as my phone is factory unlocked.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you

    Read the forum rule. Stop piracy Apps and start to pay developers for their works. They are human being and they need money for living as well.

    Stop the arseholes that allow people to use installous and then there wouldn't be a problem. I fully understand developers need to make a living but while installous is available I will use it. To be fair though mate, you didn't help me with my question :)
