    Default iphone 4 ios 4.2.8 jailbroken problems

    I have jailbroke my i4 last year, its been running great. about 8 months ago, cydia disappeared, gettting api unavailble errors.
    can still download some apps, but a good plenty of them get errors. The cdma i4@ ios 4.2.8 at bb 1.0.06 I saved my shsh blob,
    somewhere but before i upgrade, i wanted to make sure what are my best options like upgrade ios and rejailbreak or try to solve
    the api problems if possible to keep ios 4.2.8 or move on. Any good pointers from the gurus here? also, i have been getting those
    silly java errors when i try to start tinyumbrella so i can save my shsh blob. thanks in advance...

    API errors from Cydia?? Never seen those. I think ur confusing Cydia and a certain app that just recently shut down its servers.

    Yeah you just need to clean your sources in cydia. However you most certainly need to join all of us here at 5.1.1.
    There's no reason to stay on ios4

    You can also use redsn0w to save your shsh locally. Extras->shsh->remote (to pull from Cydia) new (to pull from an ipsw on your computer or local (to pull from phone).

    Your issue with tiny umbrella is specific to your pc. Have you updated your adobe products lately?

    There Are other tools too.
    You can use Ifaith.
    Also when you open cydia, at the top does it give you a list if your saved blobs?

    And have you taken the next step in redsnow? Selected fetch?

    I knew it felt to good too early... my next hurdle,

    I used laelipoo's, instructions link to upgrade ios/5.1.1 all stages of restore went fine,entered dfu,
    after limera1n stage, the restore menu >>extras>even more->restore menu pops up, all the info is
    displayed(build, blobls local and remote is selectable.) ecid:xxxxx bottom message:iphone 4-vzw(pwned dfu mode)
    it just sits there, the next button is not highlighted or back or quit.. what gives??? phone is still in dfu mode..

    could my downloaded ios 5.1.1 possibly be corrupted? (the downloaded ios 5.1.1 was renamed as .ipsw instead of the .zip)

    You did the part where you stitched the blobs together?
    And then you selected that new stitched blob?
    The download should've come as an ispw, looks like a little whit box with some music symbol on it. Simple name...
    Then you use redsnow to stitch your recently saved blobs. So you end up with another ipsw, this time the name isn't do simple... But same look.
    Then you connect your phone to redsnow, get to restore,
    If I remember correctly you select the firmware first (?) then redsnow guides you through dfu mode...
    Your last post seemed a little out of order

    i didn't do any type of stitching, hence probably why i got the problems.

    I don't have the original blob prior to ios4 jb.(current status) if i save the blob off the current jb ios4, could
    that be used?

    thanks.

    So take the fresh stock apple 5.1.1 firmware.
    Use redsnow and select the shsh blobs for 5.1.1 from your device.
    Let redsnow stitch those blobs together for a custom 5.1.1 stitched firmware.
    Tell redsnow to restore using the newly created 5.1.1 stitched firmware

    Try telling redsnow to look locally for your blobs that you successfully downloaded and saved

    it seems that there was a file saved locally named .shsh inside are two files
    1. .cache ( 1 file named lib-win.jar 1.51mb) its jar file
    2. .known_devices (empty)

    after many times fetching blob from my device and get a success window(nothing to do) but when i try to stitch
    and look locally, no blob found...

    any other suggestions..

    ** I am using redsn0w 0.9.win_15b3 to upgrade to ios 5.1.1, correct? just checking..

    If you're using redsn0w to restore, you don't stitch blobs at all. All you need is the stock copy of 5.1.1 and the sure fact that your blobs are on Cydia (Extras->SHSH->Verify).

    Here's the tutorial (assuming you run windows): iClarified - iPhone - How to Upgrade Your iPhone 4, 3GS Without Updating the Baseband (Windows)

    You can either tell it to upgrade the baseband or not. Doesn't matter.

    i see that dev team says that. i was very unlucky when i tried restoring with redsnow... however i belive i was using redsno 15, not 15b2 or 15b3....
    i was thinking that if he had problems using the simple way that maybe he could use stitched files.
    im really confused though as to whats going on op....
    you on windows or a mac?
    xp? vista or 7?
    what zip program are you using? winzip? 7rar? etc?
    does the ipsw you downloaded look like this? iphone 4 ios 4.2.8 jailbroken problems-ipsw.png
    where did you save it to on your computer? save it somewhere its relly easy to find and point to (desktop)

    Just a quick point redsn0w dumps a copy of your blob/s in the redsn0w folder locally, where you launch redsn0w from. Then you can point at if from there. That's how I've always done it by stitching the firmware to a local copy. Redsn0w may be different to when I last used it back on one of the previous versions.

    Good luck with it, you are in very capable hands with 3cit and Laelipoo. ;-)

    I don't think that'll be an issue, since it's more recent. You may just want to comment over on the dev blog, they might be able to figure out what the issue is.

    15b3 is the same thing as b1 with bug fixes so you should be good to go with 15b3.

    depending on how brave you are feeling...
    i could not restore to 5.1.1 so i updated to 6.0.1 and then i downgraded and it worked first try...
    might be another route to a fresh restore of 5.1.1

    It verified many times that the blob for my device was out there at cydia/remote, but nothing found on locally. but when i actually try to get to get the blob it gives out a message, ' that no blob for this device(4.2.8) was not found on cydia'. So might have to just upgrade to 6.0.1 ota itunes and downgrade like 3cit said..

    few months ago, i jb a iphone4 on 5.1.1 which was the current ios at the time, it was piece cake with no problems.

    options so far, since this upgrade/jb is not going too smoothly:
    1. upgrade to 6.01 ota jb tethered.
    2. upgrade to 6.01 ota then downgrade to 5.1.1 then jb
    3. possibly try another pc, maybe my pc isn't working out.
    4. ??

    watcha guys think, which is my better option or is there any other ones that i am missing? thank you everyone for your gracious help, totally appreciated..:o
