    So just doing a normal update via iTunes is insufficient? I plugged my iPhone 5 in, did a backup (honestly, the reason I decided to update tethered, just in case), then told iTunes to do the update. When it was done, I followed the prompts on the phone to select the language, etc. I did not manually do a restore.
    The normal update via iTunes should be perfectly fine.

    This thread is great, thank you to all the experienced jailbreakers taking time out to write reasoned responses to all our silly questions that you've probably heard a thousand times before. Lesser forums would have gone ballistic by now and it is THE main reason I signed up here last year as you all seem passionate about your devices and secure enough to impart knowledge to us newbies without resorting to exasperation

    I am making those first tentative steps into the unknown world of the Jailbreak and.I can probably speak for others when I say I am a bit nervous when my device cost me so much money, so I want to make sure I do things 100% correctly.

    Again, thank you.

    Somewhat incorrect. Instead of doing an update through iTunes, you should make a full restore.

    I did it normally through iTunes. Did I mess up? I look forward to jailbreak my device.

    You'll be able to jailbreak with no problem. Some issues could arise when Apple stops signing the 6.1 firmware and you need to restore. You might be forced to an unjailbreakable (what a word!) firmware.

    I hope its not as bad it sounds. Lol. Is there anything i can do now to avoid such a situation. I made a complete backup though before updating.

    You can follow my guide from page 1. You might get the full blobs that way - I am not sure. Does anyone else know if doing a full restore at this point will make a difference?

    Wouldn't you get the full blobs from updating through iTunes since it should be downloading the full ipsw for your iPhone?

    No, because the ipsw is mixed with the old one, causing the ap tickets to mismatch. That is why a full restore is preferred.

    Laelipoo, do you know if doing a full restore after you've updated to 6.1 using the "Update" button updates the APTickets?

    As long as you never saved the shsh and tickets from the update, then you should be fine.

    You're welcome. It got really complicated with the A5+ devices, and keeping it all straight is a chore.

    plug into iTunes and select restore. it will download the updated firmware to your computer then restore

    or go here Download iOS firmwares, jailbreak tools and more
    Apologies, it's been a couple of years since I last jailbroke my iP4.

    Just to confirm, I should take the following steps?

    1.) Connect to iTunes via cable

    2.) Click on the "Restore" tab BEFORE/INSTEAD OF hitting the "Update" tab?

    Are there any additional steps needed? If anyone using a MAC could chime in, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance!

    Unless there's something wrong with Apple's server, the restore should put you on 6.1. Then you should be okay.

    Ok. So if I updated OTA to 6.1, I can still be ok when Apple releases a nonjailbreakable update as long as I follow the steps on page 1 and haven't saved ssh and tickets? How do I know if I've saved shsh and tickets?

    I don't know why but I decided to update to 6.1 just to check out stock again and the new features of iOS 6. The jb can't come soon enough. Thanks for the info in this thread. I do enjoy the extra smoothness from stock but that's about it.

    Just a little clarification for those wanting to jailbreak:
    You do not have to be on 6.1!
    According to the official site (evasi0n iOS 6.x Jailbreak - official website of the evad3rs) and the thread title, the jailbreak will work on iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2 and 6.1.
