    Ok, cool. Thanks. One more thing though...how do I restore from that file? lol

    I have my phone plugged in and iTunes open (Windows PC)

    When I right click on my phone in iTunes (even using shift or ctrl) there is no way for me to browse to that file.

    I think someone said hold the shift key when you hit restore. Then you can choose the file from where ever you saved it

    I am holding down shift. It just keeps restoring my last backup. Doesnt allow me to browse

    EDIT:

    N/M, I thought you had to right click and hold shift, click restore. Instead its actually holding shift and clicking just the Restore button, lol.

    Is the only downside to jailbreaking without wiping your device clean is the time it takes to jailbreak?

    Done and DONE. Had to use TIny Umbrella to make sure the host was NOT set to Cydia on exit. Then restored to 5.1.1 from my jailbroken 5.0.1. Restored from backup, and all is well!! HOWEVER- it appears as if Cydia is slammed, so I can't even get in to download my packages and restore from APtbackup.... GRRRRR

    Yeah Cydia is showing "Cannot Comply" and/or "Cannot Locate Packages"

    Is that because of the server?

    yes, you may want to go to your Changes section in Cydia and click on Refresh to see if that corrects it

    Not sure what you mean by field. I dont see anything blank. However, I cannot install iFile which I purchased or some other ones like 5 Icon Dock. When I click Install, it says on top, "Cannot Comply" ... in the middle shows an option to "Continue Queuing"

    So I am a little confused on the order of steps.

    Make backup
    Restore phone via itunes using the ipsw file

    at this point my phone is not activated and if I go through the steps to activate it, it will ask to restore from my backup which brings me back to step 1. What am I missing here. I'm not sure when I am supposed to jailbreak or should I just jailbreak with all my apps and data on the phone after I restore?

    Set up as new.
    This is what I did.

    1. Make a backup via iTunes.
    2. Restore from backup using that ipsw file via iTunes. I used Windows so I shift clicked restore and it allows you to browse for that file.
    3. Activate you phone.
    4. Run the JB utility.
    5. Restore from backup to get your data/apps back.

    So odd, I have now tried Jailbreaking my iPad 3 seven times now, to no avail. However, i accidentally plugged my 4s into the laptop and the jailbreak went through on the first try. iPad was wiped internally from the settings menu, and the 4s i never wiped. I do not know what to make of this other than i am a lucky person, as I was not prepared to go without my phone for the remainder of the day.

    Thanks for the list. Its step 3 that confuses me since activating the phone makes me restore the phone from my backup. There isn't a time to jb before my phone is restored from my backup.

    Restoring the iOS and restoring from back-up are two distinct things. Once you've retorted the iOS, you can skip/cancell/ignore restoring from back-up until after you run the jailbreak tool.

    Are you still connected to iTunes when you are activating? I would disconnect it from your PC. I did or just close iTunes.

    So set up as new iphone? I can't skip as it is already checked. The only option are new iphone, itunes backup, or icloud backup.

    Yes I was but i still have to choose one of the 3 options to activate. I'll start the process over as I now have a deactivated iphone.
