01-04-2013, 04:49 PM #1Help with First ever update from Jailbreak - 4.0.1 - 5.1.1 - Where to start
Hey everyone relatively new here so hopefully i can get some help here
Ive got a Iphone 4 - had one since few months after release and jailbroken and now quite a few apps are not working right and they are the main ones i use, facebook, whatsapp etc..
I want and also need to upgrade so curently im in the middle of backing up all my music, vids, pics & vids etc though i tools (wonderfull piece of kit)
Now i think i have got the shsh blobs (whatever they are) for the 5.1.1 ios please help me confirm this - i didnt do anything so am unsure if i am them
If i do have them how can i first update the phone pleaese - a dumb or beginners guide would be best here lol
I can worry about the actual jailbreak later but if we can do it at the same time this would be a bonus - if any other info is required please ask

Ok first thing is the carrier a perm unlock? As in you don't rely on a gevey sim or ultrasnow of any sort?
This should give ya an idea about how to check ya shsh blobs and then we will go from there.

My carrier or network provider is vodafone and thats who i bought / got the phone from so i dont think its full unlocked to be used with all the other networks
Dont understand the gavey sim/ultrasnow part

My carrier or network provider is vodafone and that who i bought the phone from originally. Since then i havent unlocked the phone or anything so dont know if other sim cards will work in it. - Hope that part helps
Not sure about the gevey sim/ultrasnow part

Do a search on EBay Vodafone unlock. There is this guy can factory unlock it for 6.99 . Once you are unlocked you need not worry about baseband and you can restore to whatever firmware apple no longer signs if you have saved blobs .

Send him a message before purchasing
No if your iPhone is locked to a carrier and you do not need unlock, restoring to stock fw updates baseband.
If your current baseband is already unlock able by Ultrasn0w , you must preserve this baseband by restoring to custom fw which is even more confusing .
Factory unlock is done remotely and you will be notified . Once you are notified by the unlocker you can update as normal update .

How can i check if my phone is locked only to vodafone?? more than likely it is so if i update ot 5.1.1. what is the worse that can happen if i dont unlock it yet as that might waste more of my time.
I thought i could update the phone to 5.1.1 either by downloading the update from the apple website or even through cydia as on the top line it says shsh 5.1.1 - so does that mean cydia has already saved the shsh blobs for me?

Yes you have 5.1.1 blobs which means you can update to that firmware. What yeow is trying to say if ya update ya phone to 5.1.1 and ya baseband updates which it will ya phone will be an iPod till ya git it unlocked.

A few other forums are saying it wont change my baseband as im going to be using the same sim after anyway
sooooo confused at the mo, just want to update the phone first and get whatsapp, facebook and few others working

I wanna tell you yes. But then I will feel horrible if ya can't use ya phone and need to git it unlocked for you to use it.
