    I have a Verizon iPhone that I want to restore since I am out of my install everything on cydia phase and get it cleaned up. It is currently on 4.2.6(8E200) with baseband 1.0.05. Can I upgrade to latest version, not sure if Verizon finally got on the same page as AT&T and still be able to jailbreak?

    Edit: Title should read "Updating Firmware"

    You can just delete all the packages through Cydia, takes a bit of time but that way you don't need to bother restoring, and rejailbreaking and stuff. If you were to update iOS the jailbreak would be tethered also.

    I would still like to do a clean install as messages is starting to lag recently even after deleting 90% of my messages. I have downloaded Tiny Umbrella and tried to save the SHSH but I click save and no SHSH shows up in the list. Have tried this with Retrieve from Cydia checked/unchecked and nothing...Is there any way I can bump up to 4.2.8?

    I was able to grab the SHSH now, got quite the list...


    • iPhone4CDMA 4.2.10
    • iPhone4CDMA 4.2.6
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b1
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b2
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b3
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b4
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b5
    • iPhone4CDMA 5.0b6

    Can I use any of those to get an untethered 4.2.6 or 4.2.8?

    So there is no way to upgrade to 4.2.8 and stay untethered?

    You can only restore to the firmware version you have blobs for.
    No shsh's for 4.2.8 then you can never upgrade to that version.
    You can go down to 4.2.6 since you do have that available.

    In Cydia, 4.2.6, 4.2.8, and 4.2.10 are at the top in green?

    Can I re-do 4.2.6 because I have the blob? If yes, can you provide a link to a description of how to do it with a blob.

    If they are listed on the cydia page then yes you can restore to any of those versions up there.
    On the list you posted above it didnt say 4.2.8

    Yes, TU pulls them from cydias server.
    All you gotta do is download the official firmware version you want to restore to, open TU and click start tss server and shift or option and click restore in itunes to select the firmware you want to restore to.

    I meant the program, GreenPoison still work?

    Found that Jailbreakme.com should work for 4.2.8

    Thank you for your help AppleJuiced.

    Kick it out of recovery with TU or TU fix recovery program.
