    Question Uninstall redsn0w without upgrading to 5.1
    So my wife has an iPhone 4 (AT&T) still on 5.0. I decided to jailbreak yesterday for various reasons. Unfortunately, I realized it was a tethered jailbreak. On my iPhone, I used limera1n but on my wife's iphone I used redsn0w 0.9.10b5c.

    Basically, I want to uninstall redsn0w 0.9.10b5c and re do it with the limera1n I used on my iPhone. I understand that if I do a restore it will require me to upgrade to the latest firmware 5.1.1 or whatever and I don't want to upgrade until the jailbreak is untethered.

    Will anyone help?

    You can't jailbreak 5.0 with limera1n. I think the last firmware you could jailbreak with limera1n was 4.1
