    Default need a step by step walkthrough
    I am on a iphone4 3g verizon jailbroken 4.2.6 and would like to upgrage to 5.0.1. reading in the cydia FAQ it goes over bits and parts saying it can be done without using itunes and loosing everything on my phone.... but I cannot find a step by step on how to go about it. If there is a step by step in upgrading without itunes would one of you awesome people point me in that direction?
    Thank you.

    i think you have to create a custom firmware in redsnow to preserve baseband, turn on tinyumbrella, and shift-restore in dfu mode of itunes. I. Could be wrong though, I messed up my jailbreak/unlock many times and have the same question as you lol

    You have to create a signed firmware with Redsn0w using your SHSH blobs, just use the 'Stitch Blobs to iPSW' option in Redsn0w and you'll be good to go.

    Make sure you go into PWN DFU Mode as well. I've been restoring around iOS 4/5 for the practice of it. When you have a successful restore, you should be in recovery mode(where you see the connect to iTunes on your phone.) use redsn0w for that as well as PWN DFU mode. After you reboot, you may rejailbreak if needed. Just offering some friendly advice. Oh yeah, remember before you stitch to create the custom IPSW(also in redsn0w) Good luck!

    recovery mode is different from DFU MODE, recovery mode only allows restoring to the most current firmware, untouched meaning stock firmware..

    DFU mode allows for custom firmware and downgrades

    After you have a successful restore, your phone gets kicked into recovery mode.
    Start in DFU > Restore in iTunes > End in recovery mode with an itunes error

    Look in redsn0w and click "extras". I highly doubt the iphone dev team would put a button called "recovery fix" in there for no reason

    Which i used -everytime- i got finished with my restore on my A4 iPhone device to 5.0.1 and my iPhone 3G to both 4.2.1 and recently to 4.1. Both devices went into recovery mode on all those firmwares. When i connected either of those iPhones into iTunes, I had an error message saying "iTunes detected an iPhone in recovery mode". So I open redsn0w and used the "recovery fix" button and it booted both my devices. And when i rejailbreak my friends iDevices, I jailbreak them in the normal DFU. I only use PWN DFU for custom restores.

    Yes. Pwned DFU mode is for restoring to custom iPSW's for the device. Otherwise it's not necessary.

    that is interesting, I have never encountered that issue on my jailbreaks..

    did you test restore on a stock firmware or a custom firmware with stitched blobs?

    BTW thanks for the info!

    Custom Firmwares.

    If you were talking about stock firmwares, then we were talking about 2 completely different things the whole time. To back up what you said, yeah the stock firmwares allow normal operation after a restore. As for a custom firmware, then that button is needed. That what you meant?

    indeed that is quite bizarre, as I have experience restoring with custom firmwares and never once after the restore was successful via itunes did it kick me into recovery mode,

    After the Apple logo with the status progress bar was completed, it took me straight to the Slide to Setup screen..

    Are you using a legacy version of iTunes?

    I'd have to agree. I just restored my phone to 5.0.1 two days ago to fix something, I used a custom fw made by pwnagetool and stitched it with my SHSHs with Redsn0w. Set it into pwned dfu and shift+restored. No errors in iTunes and my phone booted up normally.

    The fix recovery I believe is there for other purposes. It occurs for example with an iPhone 3G downgrading to 3.1.x, receiving the 1015 error (meaning a baseband mismatch with fw version) will then require an exit recovery function. The actual fix recovery function I had to do when I was on 4.2.8 on my ViPhone. Did a restore on it to stock fw, it stuck my phone into recovery mode, and had to fix recovery on it with TU's fix recovery. It never happens with custom firmwares though.
