If you have the shsh blobs for it you can if not you will have to go to 6.0.1

i have no idea what "shsh blobs" is
all i know is that my iphone 3gs has been jailbreak thats all, and its iOS is 4.0
its originally owned by my brother, he gave it to me after he bought an iphone 4s
can you just give me a step-by-step procedure on how to upgrade it? because dang, i cant download apps at all because of its outdated version

I ran newest version of TU and it says "Found 7 shsh files to cache"
Is that what I need to upgrade my jailbroke 3Gs 4.2.1 ?
I don't know which version to upgrade to but this one (4.2.1) is too old for the newer apps. Do I actually need ios 5 or just 4.3? I don't want to have to do this again for awhile but I don't wanna screw up anything either...lol.

Ok so here's what happened right after i ran the application you said, the TinyUmbrella
And so i checked my cydia to think that this device prevented TinyUmbrella to function properly.
Then i saw this on my cydia, and i hope this is what you're looking for Mr. Admin
"SHSH: iOS 3.1.3, 4.0, 4.0.1, 4.1, 4.2.1r1, 6.0.1"
So, is it possible for an upgrade?
At some point i agree with JeffTwo since its frustrating to not use any kind of app for the reason of my mobile having an outdated version
Cant really maximize the potential usage of a device in a daily basis without such helpful apps.
I really hope you guys can help me on this matter.

That's what you can go up or down to. Still ain't no help since ya don't have any 5.0's blobs saved. But always good to have lower blobs just in case ya git stuck you can always downgrade.

so what should i do?
12-04-2012, 04:48 AM #9
Update it to 6.0.1 and wait for a untethered jail break
12-04-2012, 04:50 AM #10

12-04-2012, 05:36 AM #11

yes. as long as i can finally download and use apps that requires an OS above 4.0
12-04-2012, 06:48 AM #13
All ya do is sync ya phone. That could take a while depending when's the last time ya did it. And just update ya phone. Ill see if I can find a tutorial for ya gimme a sec.
Check this out.

Wait, so you are telling me to just normally sync my phone for it to update to iOS 6?
From what i heard, since its been jailbreak, you cant sync it normally to itunes to get to newest iOS version because it may cause problems.
You sure its safe to just normally sync my phone to the itunes to get the newest iOS?
12-04-2012, 07:15 AM #15
Sync ya phone won't mess it up cause its jail broken. It will keep all ya photos apps music etc. so when ya go to 6.0.1 you will be able to apply all them apps and stuff back on ya phone. Like starting almost back with a new phone. You will just have to manually pick ya apps ya want installed and so forth.

i'll give it a try.
i will post here again if something comes up.
12-04-2012, 08:58 AM #17
Aight will keep an eye on it.

from the looks of it, i think it failed because it is currently on iphone recovery mode.
I will verify when it finishes.
FML it failed.

12-04-2012, 04:41 PM #19need help! please
now i need to unlock for my sim to work *sigh*

Downgrade to ios 4 (doesn't matter which version) and rejailbreak. Then use ultrasnow to unlock the phone. Now if it turns out you're stuck in recovery mode you may have the iPad 06.15.00 baseband (the unlockable part) installed, you'll have to downgrade the baseband.
