Ios 4.3.2 is out. do not update!

@Almone: not quite true. Looks like latest RedSn0w can jailbreak 4.3.2 by pointing it at 4.3.1 ipsw, however it is tethered & nothing is working yet. Unlockers/Ultrasn0w users DO NOT UPDATE. Wait for official tools! So you can preserve baseband.

3) Before upgrading. Get pkgbackup, run it in your jailbreak phone, backup, and sync to your iTunes. After upgrade firmware, jailbreak, install pkgbackup first, run it, restore and all your cydia apps will be back. Your personal data of course is restored by iTunes.

For the love of god people learn to back up ur data, apps and music before updating to any new firmware. Pkgbackup is great for ur cydia tweaks, etc. Use iTunes own back up to save all ur info, including apps that u purchased or downloaded.


For music, u can use Sharepod. That’s what I do before updating since you’ll need a fresh install before JB. Hope u learned ur lesson nikka.

sum days back as i stayed up all nite trying to jb my silver iphone on 1.1.4.. bigboss was the only site i cud find w good info.. i trust what he post.. period.. i think 1/2 of these comments r mistaken the other 1/2 are intentionally misleading. read the title.. b4 and after all the bullshit comments

I,have iphone4 jailbroken 4.2.1.ultrasnOw.I am new to apple.my first smartphone.I paid a guy to jailbreak it & also unlock it. But I have tried putting other sim cards in it & it will only work with AT&T regular sim or AT&T prepaid sim which is what I’m using now. My base band is 3.10.01. Can anyone please tell me how to unlock my phone to use with any carrier please.!? Many thanks,Freddy

Don’t listen to the anonymous guy that says jb 4.3.2 untethered is out…there is a jb u can do for this update using redsnow but it is not official so there might be many different errors plus it’s tethered soo…yeh just wait till soon an official jb for this update comes out if u really want to update. But why update?? You arnt forced to neither is it really fixing anything noticeable so it’s dumb to update to 4.3.2

This is solid info….heed it well. I too am a long time jailbreaker/unlocker and can tell you that patience is a virtue. If there is nothing to gain in updating….well….there’s nothing to gain. Use your head and trust Bigbosses info, it’s always been correct.

i am on 4.3.1 and i jailbreaked it a couple of days ago. i want to do a fresh restore and jail break. can i restore it to 4.3.1 or will apple not sign it anymore? When i put the saurik server ip in the host file, i can’t restore my iphone as i get error 1013. so is that no longer a method to bypass itunes’ servers? what should i do?

You must be the der use backup from cydia I used it and backed all my jailbroken apps to iTunes. Then I updated my iPhone to 4.3.1. Then when I re jailbroke I just synced it and wow anything back to normal apart from I had a upgrade on firmware. There was no need to re download all my apps iTunes done all the work for me

Yeah I’m know the jailbreak is out for 4.3.1/2 but when my buddy used my laptop to update then rejailbreak, he Said (and fir all I know if was at that time only) the redsn0w is for CDMA and was untethered. But the redsn0w for Verizon is tethered.. Is there a unthrhered one out yet?

All to say that I tried pkgbackuo for the first time (other similar apps in the past failed miserably), and it worked great! Made th JB restore a snap! Only thing is you have to back up anything you did not get via Cydia by hand, like themes you installed via ssh. Easy, though.

I’ve been jailbraking my phones since firmware 3.1.2, and I must say the best rule for updating is to wait. I usually wait about 1-2 months after new update release before actually updating, for example I am on firmware 4.1 at the moment and next week I will update to 4.3.1. I like to wait out to firmware updates for two reasons #1- by the time the second update is released the update before should have most of the bugs worked out. #2- i don’t have to wast so much time jailbreaking every update, saving me time and headaches. It on you but I would wait before updating to iOS 4.3.2.

Actually iTunes can back up everything. You can use the backup apps in Cydia to backup up your Cydia apps and settings. Use installous appsync to backup any jacked apps you have. Transfer purchases in iTunes and backup your phone. After your restore with pkgbackup and appsync get your Cydia apps and settings back then sync with iTunes and that’s it… All your apps and settings (including Cydia) are back!

Yes it will happen again… But if you back it up, you can restore 4.3.2 with the back up (have all the games, setttings, music, saved games etc) just like they were on iOS 4.3.1… BUT ALL THE JAILBROKEN STUFF WILL BE ERASED… I REPEAT ERASED… you cannot back up jailbroken stuff…

Say I don’t want to upgrade now to 4.3.1, but I want to do it later: for what I’ve read, I won’t be able to do that because Apple won’t let me download the correct firmware. Neither I could download the firmware elsewhere and use that package to upgrade, because I haven’t got the SHSH, or whatever it is.

Jailbreak 4.3.1 via redsn0w(0.96rc9) works fine as a tethered jailbreak on iOS 4.3.2, I can clarify this as I am posting this on my iPhone 4 jailbreaked running iOS 4.3.2 everything works fine and there is no major issues other than being tethered 🙁

When you get the 1013 error download tiny umbrela and kick it out of recovery mode. It has been downloaded properly. Which sounds like you did just use tinyumbrela. If you don’t feel comfortable with that I have heard if u put the device in dfu mode and start running whatever program you use whether it is redsnow or greenpoison it should work also.

Anyone know why when plug my Phone in to charge it pretends like it’s charging then doesn’t actually charge? Left it plugged in all night and woke up with a dead phone. Couldn’t get it to charge from the wall but I used the same cord and charged it from my computer. It just shows the logo on the battery that means plugged in but not charging when it should be charging. Any idea why?

I always wait for the dev team to have the jailbreak. After that I upgrade to the next firmware without restoring my iPhone and when I jailbreak it again I just install the simple things I had and installous and I get everything back, even saved games and pictures.

Hwo do you restore, I lost my music library. I see in iTunes it registers as other and they are there as I can see them in the file directories but they arent going to my music library. Apps are failing and not working properly and Im crashing a lot. Need to restore till the kinks get worked out. Please help!

I got my iPhone 4 stocked on recovery mode when trying to restore at apple, for 2 days I tried to get it back using all available solution, finally Redsnow rc12 was the only one able to pull it out from the recovery with 4.3.1 restore, now my iPhone works fine…
