    Default Is there any way to upgrade my iPhone 4 firmware?
    Hey everyone. Hoping someone can guide me in the right direction with a firmware update. I've got a iphone 4 running 4.0.1 (yeah i know it's old), with BB 1.59.00. How far can i update the firmware on this thing and what would be the best way to go about it? Will I need to do it in steps and get to 4.1 then 5 etc. My carrier is T-mobile if that is needed. I haven't done an upgrade and unlock in a while, and I just don't want to mess it up. Thanks for any help.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm pretty sure I have no blobs saved for it. I'm also fairly certain I never did a firmware upgrade since I bought the phone many moons ago. I guess I'm basically starting from scratch, aside from the fact that it was already unlocked when I got it.

    Gotcha. Let me ask this...what's the highest OS I could upgrade to without having a tethered jailbreak, and is there a good write up somewhere on how to go from such an old firmware to a relatively new version?
