    Running a Jailbroken iPhone under 3.1.x and concerned about updating to iOS 4? Should you re-virginize first? Backup your Jailbreak data for the future?

    Get help. Give help. Here's the thread to discuss any and all issues related to updating iOS 4 from Jailbreak.

    If I restore my phone as new then install iOS4, is there any way to get my apps' data back on to my phone?

    I assume doing a full restore will bring files that were left over from Spirit JB and thus cluttering up my new install of iOS4, correct?

    I think i'm going to leave my 3GS Jailbroken on 3.1.3 and wait till I get the iPhone 4 on Thursday, that way I won't be phoneless if something doesn't go right during the upgrade.

    To get the 4.0 GM on my Spirit jailbroken iPhone 3GS, I downloaded iTunes 9.2, connected iPhone to my computer, ran a backup, installed 4.0 GM, and finally ran a restore from backup. All apps, data, music, videos, settings, etc. where just like they should be. I was concerned because I had Categories on my iPhone, but all was good.

    I did not re-virginize and all worked as I'd hoped.

    i have a brand new iphone (3gs) running 3.1.3 software. i heard there pretty much wasnt any jailbreak for that version so i decided ill wait a few days until 4.0 software comes out (which i hear already has jailbreak for beta versions).
    so i was wondering. when i jailbreak my phone does that delete all my ringtones,music,apps or what? also is there going to be a stable jailbreak available for the real 4.0 software coming out tomorrow?

    Did you still have a jailbroken iphone 3GS but running 4GM? I read it can't be done yet.

    No left over files or remanents from the jailbreak?

    So are you saying your phone was not jailbroken after the upgrade and you lost all your apps from the jailbroken phone?

    Sorry I don't understand your reply "No left over files or remanents from the jailbreak?"

    My question to JohnH59 is basically this... after upgrading to iOS4 on a jailbroken phone and doing a restore from a backup file done while jailbroken using Spirit, did the phone on iOS4 have any files that were remnants of the jailbreak?

    ie. were there files that were used by Spirit that were backed up and therefore copied back to the phone during the restore that are just sitting in the file system.

    Real simple, my question is Was the Iphone 3gs still jailbroken with all the same apps still on phone after the upgrade to 4.0 OS. If so how was it done.

    If you upgrade to iOS4, it will overwrite the jailbreak. If you need jailbreak, wait until a method is available before updating.

    No mention of this JB being compatible with those of us with the 3GS. What gives? Neither the 3G or 2G were capable of reaping any of the benefits of the 4.0 OS. I'm guessing they were easiest to JB and 3GS is coming soon? I hope...

    "This BETA release supports:
    * iPhone 3G and iPod touch 2G only (for now)
    * Mac OSX x86 and Windows only (for now)
    * the 4.0GM FW only (for now)"

    Fairly simple question here. I have a 32Gb iPod Touch 3rd Gen jailbroken 3.1.2 with blackra1n. If i update to iOS4 today will i be able to jailbreak in the future, when one is available?

    Gdaysoccer,

    Jailbreak for the official iOS4 is rumored to be coming soon as they already have them for the early iOS4 version.

    What I'm curious to know is what baseband my 3GS change to if I update to iOS4 from an unlocked 3.1.2 (baseband 5.11.07) I'm thinking I should just wait to experience iOS4 on the iPhone 4 this Thursday.

    Same here exactly. I have a 3GS w/3.1.2 Jailbroken. Id love to update to iOS4 as long as I can JB it again.

    On same situation as Survivor61, I did connect my iPhone to iTunes 9.2, and it says that a new version is available (3.1.3) anyone knows why? Is it required before going to iOS4?

    Edit: Well by clicking Help/Check for Updates it now suggests 4.0.

    Based on DEV-TEAM website we have nothing to do but wait.

    That is correct. iTunes 9.2 is required to upgrade to iOS4

    Thanks for the answer but my question was regarding iTunes 9.2 telling me to update to 3.1.3, but I guess that mystery was solved too, just had to click Help/Check for updates and iTunes found iOS 4.

    So, nothing to do. Sit down and wait until DEV-TEAM releases the tools. I hope nobody goes crazy and update to 4.0. To kill my anxiety I'll just download the 4.0 SDK and have a play on it.

    I was just wondering

    I have a Jailbroken 3.1.3 device, and I have iTunes 9.2 installed an running. I read on tipb that I had to restore to Regular 3.1.3 in order to successfully Update to iOS4, but when I tried to Shift+Click Restore and select firmware in iTunes 9.2, it told me that it isnt compatible.

    Can someone tell me what I did wrong, or tell me what I need to do? Or even answer this one question If I click Restore in iTunes, will it restore to 3.1.3 automatically and Update to iOS4? Or will I have to actually manually restore to 3.1.3? Ive been dying to know, but scared to try it out.

    Thanks Guys.

    I've seen this question asked multiple times now but I don't think I've seen a clear answer to it yet. Does anyone know for sure if I update my iPhone 3GS from a jailbroken 3.1.2 to official iOS 4.0 willingly giving up my jailbreak if I will be able to jailbreak it again in the future once the DevTeam finalizes and releases their jailbreak software. I'm assuming yes since it should be the same as a never before jailbroken phone running iOS 4 being jailbroken, but am still worried about updating. I don't mind giving up jailbreak for a few days while I play with the new features but don't want to not be able to jailbreak it in the future.
