Thread: Custom IPSW redsn0w problem

  1. #1
    Default Custom IPSW redsn0w problem
    Trying to upgrade to 5.0.1 on my jailbroken verizon iphone4 and get it jailbroken.When trying to preserve my baseband in redsn0w with the custom ipsw feature I keep getting the error "Wrong IPSW type:This option can only be used for iphone 3gs or iphone 4 ipsws." Tried several different sources for the ipsw file. Is this even necessary to do? Is their another program/ method to do it?
    Thanks

    Not necessary on a verizon iPhone. Simply update to 5.0.1 regular firmware then jailbreak with redsnow.

    ok well that works for me, so if I have 4.2.6 software right now and its jailbroken. I can just click update on itunes, then jailbreak?
