    You shouldnt be extracting it. If it is a .zip file rename the extension to .ipsw. Or you can redownload it with firefox and it will be in .ipsw format already for you.

    Im totally lost here. i downloaded the pdf on the first page but im lost. Ever since unlocking became complicated after 4.0.1 or something like that, Ive been afraid to update my iphone because i rely on an unlock.
    So here's the deal, I have a 3GS on 4.0.1 firmware, my modem firmware or baseband is 05.13.04
    So is it safe to upgrade to 4.3.3 and safely unlock?
    What do I need to download?
    thanks so much in advance

    Use pwnage tool or snowbreeze to make a custom 4.3.3 firmware and shift/option restore to that in iTunes. Doing this will preserve your baseband so that you can still unlock. Do not restore to a regular firmware whatever you do.

    You won't need jailbreakme.com at all. Custom firmware is prejailbroken. Once you Have restored to the custom firmware open cydia and install ultrasnow to unlock again.

    If you create a backup in iTunes and after the upgrade, right-click device in left panel and select restore from backup. Select the backup you created and it will restore most everything.

    If you are referring to App Store apps, in iTunes right-click your device in the left panel, select transfer purchases. After your restore/upgrade just sync the apps back in from iTunes.

    You don't "need" it but if you have one you should use it to activate. You should get one if you don't have one for future use just bc hacktivation has side effects that can be fixed but that's extra hassle you dont have to deal with if you use a SIM

    Push notifications don't work, possible battery drain, and possibly YouTube not working.

    It's easily fixed. Just install SAM from Cydia and it will "deactivate" the hacktivation.

    If your worried about losing app/game data then datadeposit in Cydia works great.

    Can restore as new and just restore all your original data back onto the phone.

    Ok so I used snowbreeze with the downloaded 4.3.3 ipsw and it guided me to put the phone into dfu mode. The it says open itunes and shift+restore, I do so with the new snowbreze ipsw and i get error 3014. I unplugged the phone and retried to restore 5 times, always getting te same error.
    Any advice? I also noticed that the 4.3.3 download file that i downloaded through snowbreeze has been removed. The last two are 4.3 and 4.3.4

    I've just purchased a 1st gen iPad, which has firmware 4.3 (8F190) installed. From checking, it appears that I'm unable to upgrade this to anything other than fw 4.3.4. I do have a custom firmware from redsn0w for 4.3.3, as well as 4.3, but couldn't seem to find any clear answer if there was anyway of upgrading my firmware to 4.3.3., or if I am now forced to use 4.3.4. If I have to update, can somebody clarify that there isn't an untethered jailbreak for 4.3.4 yet.

    Any advice would be much appreciated.

    If you dont have SHSH you will be forced to the latest firmware, which I believe is now 4.3.5. There is a tethered jailbreak for that. For a untethered jailbreak just stay at 4.3 and use jailbreakme.com.

    I believe you can extract your 4.3 SHSH with iFaith so you may want to do that first so at least you will be able to restore to 4.3 if you need to.
