I have a 4s at 5.01 (9A405) and iTunes says I have the current firmware. I wanted to upgrade to 9A406 and save my SHSH with TinyUmbrella. Is there a simple way to manually upgrade the firmware to this version WITHOUT having to do a complete restore? I would like to avoid the hassle of a restore if I can.

Anyway, fired up TU and did a SHSH back up. It did save the 9A406 SHSH even though my phone says I am 9A405 still. I assume this is because the firmware update was nothing more than a mere version change with a small tweak and TU new how to deal with it.

I'm in the same situation 4s at 5.01 (9A405) and iTunes says I have the current firmware. As far as I know you can download 9A406 FW, then on iTunes press shift (on windows PC) and hit update button, iTunes will let you choose where you save the 9A406 FW. I believed it will update your iPhone not restore it.
However I do not know if its worth updating to 9A406 FW, I think I will wait until the jailbreak is out, just in case.
