Thread: Had it jailbroke - is it easier to go back?

  1. #1
    Default Had it jailbroke - is it easier to go back?
    Ok, I jailbroke my iphone 4.0.1 and ipad on jailbreakme.com and it worked perfectly.

    I had Cydia installed and all was good.

    Then, I somehow authorized Itunes to update my devices and they ended up at 4.0.2 minus the jailbreak.

    Because I had Cydia installed is it easier to downgrade back to 4.0.1?

    What do I do to get this jailbroke again?

    I'm running snow leopard but also have XP installed and can run through VMWare Fusion.

    Help

    Thanks

    If apple is still signing 4.0.1, you can do the shift/fn + Restore to 4.0.1 ipsw.
    If apple has stoped signing 4.0.1, then you need shsh blogs for 4.0.1 in order to downgrade.

    Make sure you grab that 4.0.1 SHSH blob while you can. Otherwise another accidental upgrade could really screw you up.

    Can the "shift/fn + Restore to 4.0.1 ipsw" be done with my mac?

    Will it wipe everything out?

    Can you give me really specific instructions - I'm pretty new to this.

    I'd love to get the blobs too.

    I don't use a mac, I think on a mac, you do the Option + Restore to the 4.0.1 ipsw you downloaded onto your computer. It will wipe out everything on your iphone. Give it a try, I think apple is still signing 4.0.1, so you don't have to edit your hosts file.
