05-09-2012, 06:39 PM #1How Do I Update to 5.0.1 from 5.0? Just bought a iPod Touch 4g and want an untetheredjb
I tried using iTunes to update to 5.0.1 by holding shift and restore but it errors out... I'm guessing cuz apple doesn't allow updating to anything but 5.1.1 now...
How do I go about upgrading my iPod Touch 4g to 5.0.1 from 5.0 so that I can use redsn0w to do a un-tethered jailbreak?
I'm running Windows 7 Pro on my laptop.

Do you have the SHSH saved for it? If not, you're stuck with 5.0 or update to 5.1.1

Where would i get the SHSH for it? I just bought it the other day and used the restore function within the iPod to bring it back to stock 5.0 to remove all the settings/music/email from it.

You can only get them when apple is signing that firmware. Which they have stopped. So you can't get them.

Damn... That sucks. Is there an un-tethered jailbreak for 5.1.1?

You can tether jailbreak though. Which in my opinion isn't that bad.

Ok... So my best bet, since i can't do an update to 5.0.1 to be untethered is to update to 5.1.1 and do a tethered jailbreak?
Also, can you explain why you can't update to 5.0.1 from 5.0 anymore? Wasn't there a way with tinyumbrella to point to cydia for shsh before? Reason I ask is that i have a buddy with an iPhone 4 that's on 4.x and he wants to go to 5 and have it jailbroken... but he's not going to want it tethered... I know that much.

Yes. But the iPod is new so cydia couldn't have saved the SHSH.

No, because Apple isn't signing them anymore

Gotcha. So I just have to wait and see if they figure out how to untether 5.1.1. Damn... I wish i would have bought this damn thing before they came out with 5.1.
Thanks for your help
