    Hello everyone, thanks for taking your time out to help me (hopefully, lol).

    I know this question has been asked I'm sure--I ran searches, Google, on here, etc--I couldn't find anything with "exact" help.

    Here's my situation--I have a jailbroken iPhone, ATT, 3.1.3 (7e18), firmware 05.12.01. I'd really like to update to iOS 4, and still be able to jailbreak.

    Can anyone help me with the steps to do that? I really don't want to brick my iPhone, so any help would be wonderful. Thanks again so much in advance, and sorry if this question has been asked (and I didn't find it).

    You can only upgrade to 4.0 or higher if you have SHSH saved in Cydia.

    This is really not true since he could go to 4.3.1 and have a tethered JB without SHSH saved (assuming he has a 3GS)

    OP - what kind of iPhone do you have? Do you have any SHSH saved at the top of the main page in Cydia?

    Probably a 3Gs if his bb is 5.12.

    3G & 3GS with the same firmware version have the same baseband.

    The question about upgrading firmware has been asked and answered numerous times, so you didn't really search.
    Please stop using brick. It can't be done with software. Software errors are always recoverable, one way or another.

    Dude, everyone knows that Mr. Chocolate Triple Thick Shake possesses psychic powers to the nth degree. C'mon, you're just being mean if you refuse to use those powers. :D

    Man, you're a cheap date. You should hold out for the supersized value meal. Those superpowers require energy, don't ya know?:p

    Apple pie, super-sized value meal and mcflurry. Hmm, maybe you should also ask for one of those faux-starbucks coffee drinks too. :D

    I have an iPhone 3gs. In Cydia (in green font) it says SHSH: 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2, 4.1, 4.2.1+, 4.3

    I did do a search, and I found a couple things (but I didn't find what I thought would help me)--so I asked in a thread. I apologized, and as you can see, my thread was made at 430 in the morning, I've had some family problems and haven't slept in 48+ hours--this is my vacation away from my problems. So my apologies if I did something numerous others did. But, I did run a search.

    iPhone 3gs, anything else you need to know to help?

    Thanks everyone.

    Here's what I would do bro.
    Its good that you have shsh blobs for plenty of firmware.
    I'd create a custom 4.2.1 ipsw with pwnage tool.
    Then restore to that JB firmware thru itunes. Just follow this step by step below.

    I don't have a mac (I'm still poor, lol). I looked at that site, and it didn't seem like it made sense to me. I'll look for a windows version of those directions.

    Is updating, then jailbreaking a difficult process? (Or am I making it out to be much harder than it is?)


    I guess I thought I would see a list, cause jailbreaking originally was pretty easy for me.

    And once again, thanks everyone for helping.
