    Hello everyone,

    I've been stuck in the stone age running my iphone4 on jailbreak 5.01 and want to upgrade to ios7. whatever the latest version is! I am not as tech savvy as most here, so is there a step by step process on how to do this or a website which has step by step advice on how to upgrade without losing or bricking their phone?
    Oh I dont care that Im losing my jailbreak, I cant run most of my apps anymore and its getting old :/

    I'd appreciate any and all help :)
    Thanks!

    Connect to itunes and hit update or restore, you'll get the latest 7.04 iOS version.

    Before you do that run iFaith to safe your 5.01 SHSH's so you can always go back to 5.01

    iFaith is windows only. It's recommended to dump your 5.0.1 blobs using iFaith just in case you find that you don't like iOS 7. The blob will give you the opportunity to downgrade if you so wish

    To save pictures, messages, just make a backup using iTunes.
