    Default Going from tethered JB to untethered JB.

    My ip4 is on 4.2.1 and JB with redsn0w, do I need to restore and re JB to get the new greenpoisi0n? Also anyone having issues on the new untethered JB? Thanks for looking!

    It's best to start with a fresh vanilla install of 4.2.1. just to make sure everything goes smoothly

    I've heard numerous people say they went straight from tethered to untethered and all worked fine. If Cydia disappears run Redsn0w and click to install Cydia and all should be fine.

    Question, I'm new to JB and I've bought a few JB apps, when I do a restore and re-JB will all of my purchased apps still be there or will I have to re purchase them?

    Once you purchase the JB apps, they are linked to your account, so you will be able to just redownload them again without paying.

    Thanks. I'll do the un tethered JB Tuesday when off of work, that ought to also give the servers time to return to normal.

    I was able to run this new greenpois0n jb onto my tethered redsn0w jailbroken phone, with no problems. Iphone 4, 4.2.1. No issues whatsoever - it just ran, did it's install thing, which took a while, but then cydia was right where it had been before. The only difference I can see is that I can restart the phone untethered, of course, and the new animated boot up logo.

    No you can reboot like normal since it's untethered. If Cydia fails to load you can use Redsn0w to install Cydia.

    Hmmm. Wonder if anyone can shed any light on my experience? I recently installed redsn0w 0.9.6b4 tethered on my 4.2.1 iPhone 4. All worked fine and tethered wasn't too much of a hassle.

    I've tried to install GreenPois0n over redsn0w and seem to be hitting a wall. I go through the JB process and everything seems to work OK, I get to the animated skull and the phone reboots. However, on reboot I get the Connect To iTunes message. I can still boot tethered using redsn0w but when I respring I see the skull logo.

    Any suggestions? Would it be best for me to start afresh, restore to 4.2.1 and then try to JB using GP?

    Thanks for your help.

    I'm on redsn0n 0.9.6b6, used the "mirror" for GP i found on tipb. Ally posted it on the site. It took like 2 minutes to run GP over top of redsn0w and have had 0 issues. Iv rebooted 3 times and no iTunes message. Not sure if the updated redsn0w 0.9.6b6 makes a difference. I believe u can just update ur red snow and try GB again. Hope this helps, let me know.

    Btw I'm sure the very best way is to restore and re JB but what a huge pain in the ***. If u they this first u have nothing to loose, u might have to restore anyway.

    I ended up just doing a clean restore in the end and installed GP, all worked fine.

    No. You don't need to restore. I just tried this with my iPod which was tethered. It worked smoothly.
