    I don't believe there is an untethered jailbreak for that firmware.

    So what do I need to do? If I update I can't choose my firmware right? Won't it automatically update to the latest firmware? What's the most current firmware for it and can it be jailbroke (untethered)?

    The current firmware is IOS 5.2.1 and is a tethered jailbreak. If you have shsh blob saved, you can restore to an untethered jailbreak.

    I do not have shsh saved. Currently I'm on ios5 which I believe there is a tethered Jb availible for. There's no way I can download an ipsw for iOS 5.0.1 and use that? Thank you for the response. Was kinda feeling like no one wanted to help me.

    You should start saving your blob locally using Tiny Umbrella.

    You can still save your blob locally without a jailbreak.

    Oh, with tiny umbrella? I did not know that. Thanks. So can I download a untethered jailbreakable firmware (ipsw) from idownloadblog and restore to it? Or does the ipsw need to match my current firmware? Thanks for helping.

    If you do have the blob downloaded, go download snowbreeze master and stitched the firmware that correspond to the blob, follow instructions to put iphone into pwned dfu mode and restore to it. You can see Nito TV if it is jailbroken.

    If I save my blobs I will be saving 5.0 and there is no untethered jailbreak for that correct?
