    I've not jailbroken my iPhone in a while, and thus I'm thinking about doing it again.

    But, with the release of iOS 5 in Sep\Oct, I'm beginning to wonder if it's even worth it.

    The most I really want from the iPhone is 'better notifications'. Seems that is coming with iOS 5. Alas, one has to wait.

    4.3.3 has been very solid for me... i updated just a couple of weeks ago and JB'd it... i make use of lot of JB apps including notification system and complete my ip and i don't miss my bb at all.

    I will probably not jump on ios5 immediately i will wait a bit till all the jb and apps are streamlined.

    I finally jailbroke my device after seeing that iOS5 wasn't coming until the fall. As you said, the notification thing was what I was craving most. Bought LockInfo and ToneFxs 2 (each has trial periods), and notifications are much more useful now.

    I also have Lockinfo & ToneFx, and can't do without them. After ios5 comes out, i believe that both these apps will still be viable.

    Where are the 4.3.3 JB instructions? I saw the 4.3.2 but have not found the 4.3.3 yet.. I am still going to look around, but if someone knows, please send a link. Thanks!

    ----- Updated Edit----
    Nevermind, I found it I knew if I kept looking I would.

    Thank you iV1SHAL. That is exactly what I needed. Another Question I have: I purchased PKGBackup to backup my paid JB apps.. I have no idea how to use it... any good tutorials on that?
    What I don't understand is: When I press Backup, it tells me don't forget to sync with iTunes.. so I sync with iTunes...

    1.) How do I know it has been backed up in iTunes?

    2 Should I update my iTunes to the newest version before I Jailbreak or stay on version 10.2.2?

    ...when you sync with iTunes, it backups that 'contact' to iTunes. But if you have GMail or Google Apps, you'll notice the backup for PKGBackup, as a contact! It will have some odd name, about 10-15 characters long.

    navi, if you're going to tweak your device then why not partake in the iOS 5 (beta) juice?

    you will get those "better notifications" you are looking for, as well as a lot of other cool features! yeah it comes with a price (some apps not working properly, little bugs here & there) but it's worth it in my opinion

    Do yourself a BIG favor, write down all your JB apps, and when you next jb, add them in one at a time. It's the best way to do it with no problems. PKBackup never worked for me, from the get-go!

    Do you not have to pay for them again? That was my concern for wanting to use PKGBackup. The two main ones I don't want to pay again are MyWi and Lockinfo.

    You won't have to pay for them again. When you bought those apps, you received a license. Next time you jb, download those apps through Cydia, and it will say "purchased", somewhere within the app.

    Yes. Everything that you have on your iPhone, except Cydia and JB apps, will be put back onto your iPhone. Once again, WRITE DOWN all your JB apps, and after you JB, go into Cydia, find what you wrote down, and add them one at a time.

    Thank you Grunt0300! I will take your advice. One last question before I begin. I am currently 4.2.1 Jailbroken. Should I upgrade iTunes to the latest version or stay on 10.2.2 before I begin the uprade/JB? ( Does it even matter?)

    You can upgrade iTunes first, if you want. Do not start the JB, do not plug your iPhone into the computer, until the iTunes upgrade is completed. Good luck.

    First off, to tengence: go here Dev-Team Blog it is about half way down the page:

    redsn0w 0.9.6rc18:

    OS X
    Windows


    SECOND: Ok, I tried to restore this morning so I could start the JB process. My first step was to Restore and update firmware. I have tried by Holding down the option button (Macbook pro) and clicking on Restore in iTunes. I browse to the ipsw file that iTunes downloaded and choose it. I get the following error message: "the iphone could not be restored. the device isn't eligible for the requested build."

    I also tried choosing the ipsw from the pawnage download and get the same error message??


    --------------UPDATE-------------------------

    I figured it out. I had to open TinyUmbrella and uncheck "use Cydia to verify"

    -----------------------------------------------

    Go to the home page. Click on the jailbreak section. Here's what you want... RedsnOw 0.9.6rc15....IPSW 4.3.3_8J2_restore,ipsw. Make sure you already have 4.3.3 downloaded, before you start.

    You're probably right, I should. But, I just couldn't be bothered with the whole getting a Dev, then registering the UDID, and all that.
