Hello all, I hope this is the right place for this question Im rather confused at this point. I have a Jailbroken 3gs 3.1.3 via Spirit with the new bootrom... what Im hoping to do is upgrade to at least iOS4 for Id like to have the new features, Id also like to jailbreak it again. Currently my Itunes is telling me that the newer software that is available to me is ver 4.0.1, when I know Apple has already released iOS 4.1?. I have Itunes ver 18.104.22.168. Can someone give me advice to decide what the best route to take?

I FU*KED up bad.
But I think this could be solved with just a little help from you guys. I have a few important cracked apps. With notes and data. I downloaded AppSync and synced all my cracked apps with iTunes. Everything seemed fine so I updated to 4.1
But when I tried to sync the iPod Touch of mine with iTunes I get an error message at the end with iTunes telling me it couldnt transfer certain apps - namely all my cracked apps.
Why is this?
Is there anyway i can transfer my cracked apps to my iPod Touch without iTunes?
Is there anyway I can trick iTunes into thinking my apps are legit?

@Jaypeg - maybe you are lucky? If iTunes only upgrades you to 4.01 it seems that you will be able to go straight to jailbreakme.com. If you get upgraded to 4.1 you will have to downgrade before jailbreaking.
This is what is holding _me_ back... If I have to downgrade, it means wiping my phone and I haven't had the time to set aside for rebuilding it. And so I sit happily at JB 3.1.2.

Hey guys I REALLy want to update to 4.1 so here's what I got:
-Always jailbroken through blackra1n.com
-I'm a noob so his was so easy to jailbreak so I always stuck with that.
So I'm wondering if I can easily restore or somehow upgrade my iPhone to 4.1? Does anyone know what I have to do, because I am TOTALLY lost.
EDIT: it is a tethered jailbreak. I don't care if it's tethered or untethered just want a fast, efficient, and clean way to update my iPhone to 4.1 and still have the jailbroken functionality.

First Hello, this is my first post here.
I'm looking information on how to upgrade, Jailbreak and Unlock my iPhone 3Gs.
I've read many post on how to accomplished this but I could not find a lot of (relevant) information for this, maybe cause my OS and Baseband are too old.
So the information
OS v = 3.1.2
Baseband = 05.11.07
BootLoader = 359.3
Jailbreaked = Yes
Tool used for Jailbreak = blackra1n
Unlocked = Yes
Tool used for Unlock = UltraSn0w
Type of Jailbreak = Untethered (Computer independent, note to myself)
I live outside United States (I don't know if this matter), I'm using iTunes version 10.0.0.68.
What I want?, a guide for the upgrade to iOS 4.1, later the Jailbreak and then the unlock.
More info, I don't mind to re-download all the apps that I have, I will take time but I don't mind. I sync regularly so I have backup (but I guess its not compatible between the version that I want to upgrade).

I can see that there's an unofficial guide to do this
I know I will need a AT&T chip to activate the iPhone, so my question in this regards are, is this fine to risk doing this or should I wait?, also and more important, which improvement (you think) should come with the official version?.
Thank for your time

I dont have a 3gs so I couldnt tell you. I wouldnt take a chance using the unofficial version because if it doesnt work, you will lose unlock, which Im sure you value dearly.... Id just wait a few days, should be out very soon.

How does the release of 4.2 expedite the unlocking of 4.1? I'm trying to help a friend unlock his 16GB 3G, but the firmware has already been updated to 05.14.02. I told her that we're gonna have to wait a little while. Will I use greenpois0n to JB and unlock as well?

I've had my 3rd gen. iPod Touch jailbroken through Blackra1n for almost a year now. The firmware is 3.2.1 and I'd like to upgrade to the latest 4.2 and be able to also jailbreak it with Blackra1n as well. My question is how do I go about doing that? I'd like some sort of tutorial without bricking my iPod. I'd also like to know if, in the process, it's possible to keep my file/folder structure the same, keep my game saves and data, and also my wifi, VPN, and mail settings when upgrading?
I've been looking around for some tutorials on upgrading from 3.2.1 Blackra1n to 4.2 w/ Blackra1n and have found nothing. I need a noob-friendly guide. It doesn't look like iPod 3G is supported by PwnageTool.
Thanks in advance!

Hope this is the right forum.. Updating from ios 4.0
I hope I have the right spot for this. I'm a newbie to the jailbreak. I have read a lot of how to's etc. To sum it up, I have a jailbroken 3gs using OS4
If I wanted to upgrade to 4.2 and keep the jailbreak, what is the process? Do I upgrade to 4.2 through itunes and then jailbreak again? Or can I just run the 4.2 jailbreak and it will upgrade automaticly. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have a jailbroken unlocked 3g S. Before it was jailbroken the person that jailbroke and unlocked it the SHSH was saved with IOS 3.1.3 with a firmware of 05.12.01. I just opened Cydia and it shows the IOS as 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.0.2 and 4.1. I would like to upgrade the the IOS but I am as new as a newborn baby when it comes to the iPhone. I think when I checked iTunes wants to upgrade to 4.2. Is there a jailbreak for 4.2 and will I also be able to unlock it again? Is it possible to only upgrade to 4.1? I am going to Denmark on New Years Day and want to have my phone unlocked so I can use it there. If it can be jailbroken and unlocked if I upgrade to 4.2 can anyone point me to where I can get SIMPLE step by step instructions? Any help will be GREATLY appreciated.

I also seem to recall that you could use the tinyumbrella TSS server to upgrade to iOS 4.1 without updating your baseband, but I don't know if that still works. I didn't want to risk it and all out iPhones are still at 4.01 until I can research the new options more.
My understanding is you can't go to 4.2.1 without a baseband upgrade, as iOS has some baseband checker for that version. You will lose the ability to unlock for sure with 4.2.x
