Restore back to verizon 4.2.6 or 5.0.1?
Hello iMore community. I wish to restore my iphone (having problems with tethering). It was jailbroke using GreenPois0n. The original firmware was 4.2.6 8E200 (and still is). I don't know much about the verizon firmware. What would happen if I restored it to a different version?
After restoring, I would like to jailbreak it again.
Basically, what recommendation would you guys have in my situation? I appreciate any help. Thanks in advance. -adabo

if i understand the process correctly you can only restore back the the 4.2.6 firmware (which you currently are on) but that is ONLY if you save your SHSH blobs via iFaith or TinyUmbrella
if you have never been on 5.0.1 then you surely did not save your SHSH blobs for that specific firmware
otherwise, when you go to update or restore--hello 5.1!

from a stock point of view, personally, i like 5.X better than anything 4.x.x had to offer
regarding jailbreak for 5.1; there is no Untethered jailbreak as of yet. however, there is a Tethered jailbreak (iPhone 4) which i was doing, with SemiTether, but i was having an issue with Activator (not fully compatible w/5.1) so now i am stock 5.1 waiting for the Untethered
maybe it is a good time to take a break from jailbreaking, go to 5.1 stock and wait for the Untethered?

haha! well a lot better on 5.x than previous firmwares, that's for sure. for me it seemed like a good time to take a break due to me getting a little burnt out on the whole process. the littlest imperfections are starting to get to me--ranging from a tweak not working properly so a reboot was in order to just a minor flicker or stutter due to a wonky tweak
i have been jailbreaking for as long as i owned an iPhone so its nice to not have to worry about the little things. i know i will jailbreak when/if there is an untethered for 5.1, but for now i am happy stock as well
jailbreaking for me is more of a hobby than a necessity, and that's how most should look at it due to the major inconsistency of jailbreaks ( their availability and length of time it takes ) i know the jailbreak faithful would disagree with my theory but that is my take on it
