    That was easy. I love easy updates.

    It also got me looking around Cydia, and now I have the old Batman logo replacing the wifi symbol.

    nothing, in the future if you upgrade to an OS there is no JB for or for some reason you need to downgrade this will allow you to shift+restore to the older ipsw.
    can't upgrade via iTunes check this thread http://forum.tipb.com/jailbreak-unlo...ml#post1717460

    Except I have never gotten it to actually work.

    Followed the directions, tried to install to the previous OS, doesn't work. Anyone got any advice?

    I wasn't able to, nor could I erase 3.1.3 tethered with a normal 3.1.3 then use Spirit for untethered. Just doesn't seem to work...used many dif computers, versions of itunes, followed many steps and directions on how to do it. Nada.

    I'm doing some research to try to answer my own question here, but I can't figure out what blobs are and why they need to be saved. Can someone help me with this? Thanks.

    Basically they're little security keys that Apple double-checks when you want to install a new firmware. Since Apple will only let you update to the current firmware, you want to save your blobs (aka SHSH, or SHSH blobs) for each firmware while Apple is still signing them. This is what Make My Life Easier does--or you can use the TinyUmbrella program to save them to your computer.

    An example: I was on 4.0.1 and wanted to update to 4.1. At that point Apple was only allowing updates to install 4.2.1. BUT since I had my 4.1 SHSH saved, I was able to load 4.1 instead. Without them, my only option would have been to update to 4.2.1, which at that point was only available for a tethered jailbreak--going to 4.1 let me stay untethered.

    Exactly which one did you get? I've been looking for one of those.

    @tourstagefan:

    Sorry, that was many months ago. I can't recall where I found it.
