    Count yourself lucky, then. My iP4 on iOS 5 dies a quick battery death about every 24-36 hrs when I used to go ~4 days on 4.3.3. If I am at 100% at 9 am before work then by 7p I'm staring at sub-50% when most of the day the phone is on my hip unused. The same usage patterns (actually, I tether LESS now than then) but dramatically less batt life. I was hoping a forthcoming JB would include support for 5.0.1 so I could have my batt life back...

    I'm sure this has been answered in some form, but all the baseband talk and everything is throwing me off...

    I am currently jailbroken iPhone 4 running 4.2.8...I have not updated to iOS 5 as I'm waiting for an untether (as many others are). So..would the better decision be upgrading to iOS 5 NOW, and stay unjailbroken until an untether?...or will there be a way to upgrade to iOS 5, even once 5.0.1 is released? Any help is much appreciated!

    Is an i4 an iPhone 4 or an iPod Touch 4G? I have the iPT 4G and my battery life is horrendous...

    Hm.. People say you can't downgrade from ios5.0 without preserving basebands? Definitely not true. You can't downgrade to STOCK 4.3.3 with the 4.11.08 but I restored from ios5 with ifaith and now I'm on 4.3.3 with 4.11.08 bb. It can be done guys.

    Stay on what firmware you're on, when the untethered comes out all the current methods for preserving bb while upgrading will still work, although it is not actually necessary to keep them to downgrade back to 4.x.x as I said in my other post above this I'm using the ios5 bb on 4.3.3

    *edit* download 5.0 while you can and just make sure you have whatever SHSH blobs saved that you can. And not just on cydia store them on your computer too

    My Thoughts exactly.
    Am still running my i4 On 4.2.1 but if I wanna update to 5.0 once an unthetherd jailbreak is released how will I be able to if apple doesn't allow me to update to 5.0 and instead forces me to update to 5.0.1??

    Exactly right. An untethered jailbreak isn't going to be much fun if you can't restore back to it after a crash. Imagine you get used to all those lovely new jailbreak tweaks on iOS 5.0 and then your iDevice gets stuck in a boot loop... Recently it seems modmyi has post after post of new jailbreaking tweaks. IMHO, they're all useless without a way to restore back to an (untethered) JB state.

    Ip 4s,iOS 5, my battery seems to be fine, I'd rather have a jailbreak...so do I need to have an iOS 5 download as a spare on my pc just incase (if you understand me) as I've seen that you can download ios5???
    Thanks

    There is a thing called semijailbreak you know

    Yes downgrading is possible just make sure you have your blobs saved.[/QUOTE]
    So downgrading is impossible in ios5+ right? Cause shsh blobs won't work. My question is if I upgrade to ios5.0.1(public release) would I be able to downgrade to 5.0gm since I have shsh saved thru tiny umbrella?or this is no exception?

    So why can't you just download the iOS 5 ipsw file onto your computer, and do a manual restore from the ipsw? ...I think there may be something I'm missing about blobs.

    EDIT: I am still on 4.2.8, have not yet updated to 5. Wouldn't this be a viable option even after 5.0.1 is released, since I am waiting on an untether?

    I honestly thought no one would acknowledge my point, I'm glad at least one other person gets it & understands the bigger picture.

    With 5.0.1 right around the corner a solution to the SHSH blobs that comes sooner rather than later would be not only beneficial, but practical as well. Let's hope the Devs have something up their sleeves.

    As of right now you can either go back to 4.x.x if you have the blobs or you'll be forced to go to 5.0.1.

    This is why a solution to the blobs situation is so important.

    I been on 4.3.3 only because everything works right, tweaks and all but I do want that ios5.. I just can't stand the tethered jailbreak I am constantly on the move and I need the whole phone to be functional all day not just some of it. The battery life has dramatically improved after installing auto3g!!!


    P.s keep up the hard work on the untethered jailbreak guys. You guys are awesome..

    Hopefully someone can answer this for me. If you're currently on a tethered iOS 5 jailbreak through sn0wbreeze with preserved baseband 01.59.00, do I have to revert back to IOS 4 firmware or can I just rerun another custom iOS 5 to get the untethered jailbreak when it comes out?

    Let me know. I'd appreciate it!

    Update to 5.0 cuz there r no blobs saved for ups 5 and after 5.0.1 comes out 5.0 will no longer be signed to downgrade later. (assuming untethered jb) anyway

    I would stay and wait patient for the untether version to preserve the rare baseband.
